CABLE CHANNEL PCN - Pennsylvania House legislative
sessions are carried on PCN. However, Comcast, as of this
writing, does not offer PCN on basic cable in the service area which includes Abington.
It is carried on the digital channels (channels above 100), but
I don’t know which one. PCN is offered on basic cable in Upper
Dublin, which is in a different service area. If you have
any updates for us on this issue , please send
them along to us.
Subscribers to Comcast might care to ask Comcast to change this.
To unite with us to do this as one voice
email us . In the meantime, sessions are broadcast live on
both caucus websites
www.pahousegop.com. These are only carried live. They are
not available for replay after the house recesses.

Abington Township, with John Spiegelman in charge, revamped the entire Township website at the end of 2015
and broke all the links to the information we had archived on this site for you.
In 2017, Manager Richard Manfredi arrived and assigned someone not qualified to redo the entire website again.
They not only broke all archived links we had reinstated, but made everything as impossible to find as they could.
Nearly all of our comments and recommedations to fix the Township website have been wholly ignored.
So we do need volunteers to work together helping the Township create a site that is functional and accessible.
We will be reinstating links as we find them....if the data is still available.
So... please let us know if you find a broken link. Send us the URL of the link
and the name of the page it is on, and if we can, we'll reinstate it.
Thanks for the help.
