Another local officials speaking out regarding a proposal to bring Afghan refugees to Cambria County.
State Representative Frank Burns is calling for public hearings and community feedback concerning this.
Burns, a Democrat who represents Cambria County, issued a statement today saying in part,
“I believe the best way to grow Cambria County’s population and skilled workforce is through job creation, job training and fair wages, not by relocating refugees from Afghanistan,

It’s time to pump the brakes on this plan and give the public a chance to voice their concerns.
