To help residents guard themselves against identity theft, I will be hosting a free community paper shredding event Saturday, May 20 from 9 am-1 pm at The Runway at Warminster Community Park, located at 350 East Bristol Road in Warminster.
Residents of the 6th Senate District are encouraged to bring documents that contain sensitive information to be thoroughly shredded.

My staff will be on hand to address any state-related issues/questions. Free information on state programs and services will also be available.
