Bethlehem, PA. – May 24, 2019 – On Wednesday, May 29, 2019 PBS39 will host and broadcast a Q&A with the freshmen congresswomen representing Pennsylvania’s 4th, 6th and 7th districts.

This review, moderated by PBS39 Executive Producer/Host Monica Evans, will feature Rep. Madeleine Dean (4th district), Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (6th district) and Rep. Susan Wild (7th district).

“Citizens are used to hearing from their representatives during an election, but they do not always have a way to access and learn about issues affecting their everyday lives,” Tim Fallon, Chief Executive Officer at PBS39 said. “As the Greater Lehigh Valley’s public media station, it is our duty to inform the public. We are proud to give our community this unique opportunity to hear from their representatives.”

PBS39 sat down with all four congresswomen in January prior to their inauguration. In this broadcast the representatives will review what they have accomplished during their first 100 days and discuss what’s next.

The public is invited to attend this free informative event at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29 at the Science Center Theater at Montgomery County Community College.
