Houlahan Delivers 3rd Annual State of the Sixth Address at Historic Colonial Theatre

Event included a question-and-answer period

PHOENIXVILLE – Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) reflected on her State of the Sixth Town Hall last night:

“In ‘normal’ circumstances, gathering together in this historic theatre would be special –but last night, it was very special because this gathering and this event marked more than two years since I have been able to address members of our community in this particular venue, the Colonial Theatre,” said Houlahan.

Houlahan’s address was accompanied by a Year in Review video and PowerPoint presentation that provided updates from Washington, D.C. on addressing inflation, supporting small businesses and restaurants, reducing supply chain bottlenecks, helping Ukrainians defend themselves against Russian aggression and more.

“The past several years have been more than challenging, there’s no doubt about it,” added Houlahan. “At home, we have had to make some hard choices and in Congress, I have had to make some hard choices. It is my belief that our best days are ahead of us, and we will not just survive, we will thrive.”

After Houlahan’s remarks and presentation, Mayor Peter Urscheler moderated the question-and-answer period.

“Phoenixville was honored to welcome Representative Houlahan back to the historic Colonial Theatre,” said Mayor Peter Urscheler. “I was excited to see so many thoughtful questions—the Borough of Phoenixville is always a great place for people of all backgrounds and ideologies to come together for respectful dialogue. I was grateful for the chance to moderate the lively discussion and to Chrissy for her insights and sharing her positions on a wide variety of topics with us.”

For those unable to attend, a full recording will be made available on Houlahan’s website in the coming days.
