Marcy Toepel, state representative, Dan Meuser, state secretary of revenue and Justin Simmons, state representative.

         The  UPV Chamber legislative affairs breakfast  was held on August 15 at The Loft at Sweet Water, with opening remarks from the host sponsor John Andrews, The Loft at Sweet Water, followed by the breakfast sponsor Rachel Gillespie, Gillespie Electric.

        The speakers included Secretary of Revenue Dan Meuser and legislators representing the Upper Perkiomen Valley including Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick, Representative Marcy Toepel and Representative Justin Simmons.

        Secretary Meuser explained that, on a daily basis, it is his department’s responsibility to “plan right, have the right strategy and communicate with the public.” He identified issues facing Pennsylvania since Gov.

Wrapping up his remarks, he reviewed what the governor has accomplished to date.
