Please read the following press release from the four Republican City Council members and stand for more budget transparency and dialogue about different ways to reduce spending.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who made it out to our Veterans Pancake Breakfast yesterday (Nov. 7th). It was a great time of fellowship and reflection on the sacrifices of so many of our veterans. This event couldn't of been possible if it wasn't for the help of our sponsors and volunteers. Thank you all very much for investing your time and finances towards this worth while endeavor.
Lancaster County Students were asked to choose a friend, or family member who has served in the U.S. military and reflect on impact that this service member had upon the author or community.
We received some outstanding essays this year, which made choosing a winner difficult.
