My name is Chaundra Fletcher. I am a member of North Corner AME Zion Church in Lancaster. I am very active in social activities that involve the homeless, hungry and children.
I have worked in social services for the last eight years. During this time, I have learned much about the abuse and neglect of children, as well as victimization of women. I have also learned much about poverty.
It seems that the laws continue to change without any regard to those who are less fortunate. I would dare to say that many people today would be considered working poor.

Mainly those concerns have dealt with funding for public safety (specifically for the sheriff, solicitor and public defender’s offices) and the appropriations and expenditures of excess funds from the 2013-14 budget. The implication was that these funds should be used for adding additional staff to these departments. I will be the first to state that these departments are a very important core function of government.
