The Meehan Report for 1/28-2/4/18

Download the latest here: Meehan 4 Feb 2018

As the report notes, so far Meehan has resisted the pressure on him to resign now.

The public might hardly notice, since he has not held an in-person town hall in the past year. However, demonstrations at his Springfield office have been plentiful (see photos of a recent event there here).

What everyone will notice is the new boundaries of the 7th district, assuming new boundaries are really drawn this year. If Delco is entirely included in the 7th, the upcoming election will be an outstanding exercise in community engagement within a “compact” district, just as the PA constitution envisions. For a proposed map of the new districts, see here.

The author of the Meehan newsletter plans to add coverage of the Republican contenders until the primary, and of the R candidate after that. So this great resource will continue.
