2020 Census – Census Day is April 1

Every ten years the Census counts everyone living in the U.S. and it’s meant to count
everyone living in your home on April 1.

Why is the census so important?
The results are used to determine how much funding local communities receive for key
public services like schools, health care centers, and transportation. The count also
determines how many seats each state gets in Congress. State and local officials also
use census counts to draw boundaries for congressional, state legislative, and school

It’s never been easier to respond to the census without meeting a Census Taker. Make
sure your household is counted!

Mask Crusaders Equipment Donation for Frontline Workers

March 28, 2020
Williamsport, PA
For Immediate

Williamsport, PA – Mayor Derek Slaughter has partnered with Mask Crusaders to offer equipment donations to frontline workers battling COVID-19. Below is a press release from Mask Crusaders:

“As the COVID crisis escalates, frontline workers who are not able to self-isolate are left with limited resources protecting them. Artists, builders, restaurants and others who had to shutter their businesses during the crisis have materials on hand. We are calling for those with materials to donate to those in need.

If you, or anyone you know, have any supply of needed equipment such as gloves and masks, please consider donating them to those on the frontline of the COVID-19 Pandemic at . Thank you for standing in solidarity with one another.

Frontline workers can receive donations by finding what they need on the form and then reaching out to them directly to pick up. It is really simple and fast, no go-between, so we were able to “collect” and “distribute” over 3,000 units after launching it this weekend, with thousands more available for pickup at any given time!

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! (links are case sensitive)



ps… NOW IN 10 CITIES AND GROWING! To find the donation and recipient links for your city, or start your own chapter, please visit or reach out to us at”

Notes From the Mayor’s Desk…

Mayor Derek SlaughterAs the first month in office ends, I want to share some of what my administration has been working on. I will provide updates on a regular basis as part of my promise to be transparent and to keep everyone informed.

Our initial focus has been on buttoning up city finances and evaluating our general organization. There are a number of contracts and agreements we have been reviewing to update and improve contract language. These agreements include the Hiawatha, Endless Mountains Transportation Authority (EMTA), the Williamsport Parking Authority and others. Additionally, we are filling administrative positions as well as updating the appointments and reappointments to various boards throughout the city.

In the coming weeks and months, we will be sending out request for proposals (RFPs) as part of the Strategic Management Planning Program (STMP). This program is being made available to Williamsport through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). STMP will assist us in developing and implementing a multi-year financial strategic plan.

I have spoken with other PA Mayors whose cities have participated in this strategic financial planning process. Their endorsements have been strong and clear.

By using STMP, we will manage our tax dollars more effectively. Better, smarter financial management is the end goal. We will soon publish new RFPs for professional consulting services and legal services. Our goal is to steadily review and strengthen the proposal and contract language for all of the City’s contract needs.

We have very good news to support our commitment to make Williamsport’s city streets

  • The City’s first K-9 officer will be hitting the streets in the very near future. We
    continue to receive donations in support of our K-9 program and those donations are
    making a difference for our community.
  • City Council approved a new hire to add an additional officer to our police
  • City Council recently approved the purchase of software that will assist our police
    department in completing a professional accreditation program.

There are challenges facing our city. My administration is just getting started; we intend
to move quickly to establish higher standards for department and program management
that will provide a more transparent and open government. Positive changes have
started; we will continue to move forward.

Please reach out to my office with any questions or concerns:

Talk soon!
