What to look for on Smart Talk Monday, January 28, 2019:

There are 67 counties in Pennsylvania, each one with unique municipalities and governing challenges.

Every year, the state's County Commissioners assemble a list of legislative priorities that best represent the interests of all of them. Because county governments provide direct human services to their publics, their priorities are often high stake. The 2019 legislative priorities reflect this.

Voting system improvements and broadband expansion are just two of the priorities that appear on the list this year.

Joining us on Monday's Smart Talk to discuss the 2019 County Government priorities are Lisa Schaefer, Director of Government Relations, County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania, and Kathi Cozzone, CCAP president and a Chester County commissioner.
