Candidates to discuss local job outsourcing at Thursday meeting
With the nation’s economic crisis front and center in political campaigns, local elected officials will participate in a town hall meeting Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Genetti’s Hotel and Convention Center in Wilkes-Barre which will focus on the need to save manufacturing jobs and stop them from being shipped overseas.
U.S. Reps. Chris Carney, D-Dimock Township, and Paul Kanjorski, D-Nanticoke, Republican congressional candidate Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta and state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, will join local business leaders at the meeting, which is being sponsored by the Alliance for American Manufacturing, a non-partisan partnership of leading U.S. manufacturers and the United Steelworkers.
It looks like successful local businessman and Congressional candidate Chris Hackett has been left off the program of this non-partisan event. According to this story Kanjo and Mayor Lou will be in the same room at the same time. The last time they were scheduled to appear together was last Wednesday at a NAACP forum at East Stroudsburg University but Kanjorski cancelled at the last minute.
