Councilman Harry Haas

Priorities for 2017

Thank you for your help in getting my name on the ballot for this election cycle.  Over 320 people signed across Luzerne County, and the next step is the primary election on May 16.  Visit the "Contact Us" page for ways to support our primary campaign.  Much appreciation,           Harry  

Next Council Meeting: March 14 @ 6pm

Thanks for dropping by!  Here are my priorities for the new year:

1) Continue to look for streams of revenue apart from property taxation (84% of county revenues come from property tax, which is inherently unfair) and cut wasteful spending.

2) Host legislative round tables for our state and federal delegations to communicate county needs.

3) Equip the Blighted Property Review Committee to assist municipalities in fighting blight.

4) Refinance the remaining variable rate debt by restoring our bond rating.

5) Collaborate with other counties to fight the opiod crisis, spur economic development, and share costs of human services.
