PRESS RELEASE September 11, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Hempfield, PA

Supervisor Weimer Proud of State Police Protection in Hempfield Township

Hempfield provides its citizens with a high standard of living, safe neighborhoods and low taxes without breaking anyone's bank” proclaimed Supervisor Weimer.

Dear Friends,

Let's get the story straight: Hempfield should not be embarrassed or ashamed for relying on the services of the Pennsylvania State Police.

Hempfield is a wonderful and safe place to live. According to the 2009 Township Public Safety Committee report and a 2008 Zogby poll, 99 percent of Hempfield residents interviewed feel safe. The same state police protection present in Hempfield is available to all residents and communities in our commonwealth.

Hempfield is a community of approximately 42,000 hardworking residents who generously contribute approximately $25 million to the state each year in wage and transfer taxes, not to mention the millions in sales taxes collected by the state from our commercial districts. In return for the taxes, Hempfield residents receive state services such as state police protection.

Hempfield has received its share of criticism lately. However, we have been able to provide our citizens with a high standard of living, safe neighborhoods and low taxes without breaking anyone's bank.

Individual municipal decisions must remain local and should not be manipulated by outsiders or mandated by Harrisburg politicians.

Sincerely,

Doug Weimer 

Hempfield Supervisor
