Alex Charlton Hosts Paper Shredding Event

Alex Charlton Hosts Paper Shredding Event — State Rep. Alex Charlton (R-165) will be hosting a free paper-shredding event, 8 a.m. – to noon, tomorrow, May 19, at his district office, 905 W. Sproul Road, Suite 203, Springfield, Pa. 19064 for all  who wish  to dispose of sensitive documents.

“Identity theft is an insidious crime that impacts more than 15 million individuals in the United States alone at a cost of more than $16 billion,” he said. “It’s critical that we completely destroy personal records and papers when discarding them.”

This is a good thing. Doesn’t mean he has my vote Nov. 6, but this is a good thing.

For what it’s worth, we have heard that Springfield GOP leaders are reaching out to the Regina Scheerer faction that opposed Charlton on Tuesday. That is a better thing.
