Home Rule Kickoff

The NEPA Organizing Center will be working in collaboration with Luzerne Home Rule in order to develop the movement toward Home Rule in Luzerne County.

Together, we are sponsoring a Home Rule Campaign Kick Off Event at the Center on Thurs., January 29th at 7:00 p.m. The event will be open to the public, and we encourage anyone interested in joining the movement to attend. The Center is located at 198 S Main St. Wilkes-Barre.

Home Rule made it onto the May 19 primary election ballot. With all the bad news coming out of the Dingdome I think there is a good chance of it passing. Also on the ballot will be the candidates for the 11 spots on the study commission. It will be interesting to see if any of the 'good old boys' try to win a spot on the commission.
