How to get information in Pennsylvania

One of the first things a citizen has to do when they have an issue with their government is to gather information.  Unfortunately, this initial step can be a frustrating maze of automated telephone systems.  This unpleasantness can result in putting off simple tasks just because you don’t know where to begin!  Below are several links that are good starting places to gather information.
