The United States Constitution proclaims that our government is "we the people," but most citizens lack a real voice in the decisions that affect their communities and lives.

Philipstown neighbors have joined together to organize the Philipstown Community Congress (PCC), a series of public forums to help guide the future direction of the community.  The group’s focus is the development of broad citizen engagement to develop proposals to present to elected officials, community decision-makers and members of the public for action.  

Each forum is open to any Philipstown resident and provides participants an opportunity to address the question, “what do you think should be our top priorities to preserve and promote a strong community.”  The Community Congress is unaffiliated with any political party; any agenda will arise from the consensus of participants.
