To educate residents about ways in which they can safeguard their identities, Rep. Tina Pickett (Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) will hold an Identity Theft Seminar on Friday, April 27, in Sayre.

From data breaches to Facebook privacy to dumpster diving, the protection of personal information is a hot topic in the news lately, with many individuals wondering if certain facts about them and their lives are making their way around the world,” Pickett said. “This seminar will offer attendees the latest steps and tips in seeking to protect personal information from falling into the wrong hands.”

I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening.
