HERE COME THE ORGANIZERS!
The first signs of the Obama for President campaign have sprung up like the first flower of spring. We were informed by e mail that The Organizing for America Pennsylvania (OFA PA) staff and volunteers will hold a grand opening for their Scranton Field Office this Wednesday night at 6:30PM. The office is located at 216 Wyoming Ave. downtown. The public is invited to attend the grand opening to "learn more about OFA PA’s efforts in the area to build the strongest grassroots organization possible to re-elect President Barack Obama and Democrats up and down the ballot in November." The President has no primary opposition to speak of in the Pennsylvania primary so most of the organizing efforts will most likely center on voter registration.
BLOG FEST REMINDER
Blogfest coming in March, the 30th, Friday night, 6pm till whenever. Rooney’s Pub, downtown Pittston.
MURPHY SNARES PHILLY NOD
Tomorrow, Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 President John McNesby and Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams will announce the FOP’s formal endorsement of Iraq war veteran and former prosecutor Patrick Murphy for Pennsylvania Attorney General. Lodge 5 represents 14,600 active and retired officers of the Philadelphia police and sheriff’s departments.
“As the son of a Philadelphia Police officer, Patrick understands law enforcement, and has always fought for us,” McNesby said. “Whether it was fighting to put more cops on the street, or the resources we need to protect our children from sexual predators, Patrick has always done whatever it takes to keep our families safe, and Lodge 5 is proud to endorse him for Attorney General.”
