CARTWRIGHT SUMMER EVENT #4
Just getting under the meteorological radar, Matt Cartwright had his annual summer event in Moosic this morning. Cartwright started the get together when he first ran for Congress in 2012. Today his friends and supporters stopped by for the great fellowship and food provided by Wyoming Mayor Bob Boyer’s catering business. Here are a few snapshots from the event. The picnic coincides with the same week that Cartwright was named to the powerful House Appropriations Committee.
Here is a photo of Congressman Cartwright greeting some of the folks.
Cartwright had some constituents attend from far and wide. Keith Arnold on the right made the trek up from Bethlehem for the outing.
State Representative Sid Michael Kavulich was on hand with both Congressman Cartwright as well as Moosic Mayor James Segilia.
Lackawanna County Commissioner Pat O’Malley and Coroner Tim Rowland have a discussion with a constituent.
I had the opportunity to meet Bob McDonald. McDonald is making the political rounds and is the Democratic candidate for the State Representative’s job in the 120th district this fall. I attempted to take a selfie with Mr. McDonald but I edited myself out of it lest I scare any of his potential voters out there. Here’s is his Facebook information. https://www.facebook.com/BOBMCDONALDFORSTATEREP/
Two of the Congressman's biggest supporters from the Md Valley made the scene. From l to r Tom Mosher, Joann Paciotti Mosher and Mr. Cartwright.
ANOTHER BIG ISSUE FOR TRUMP
SYRIA ACCUSES U.S. OF SUPPORTING IS AFTER STRIKING SYRIAN ARMY POSITIONS IN DEIR AL-ZOUR
Syria's Foreign Ministry on accused the U.S. of supporting the Islamic State (IS) group, after a U.S.-led airstrike killed 62 Syrian soldiers in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour.
"This cowered American act is an unequivocal evidence on the U.S. support to the IS," said the ministry.
The U.S. airstrike was followed by an attack by the IS on Syrian military positions in the al-Tharda Mountain in Deir al-Zour.
The IS managed to take over the al-Tharda Mountain, before the Syrian army backed by Russian warplanes successfully recaptured all fallen sites in al-Tharda.
Tonight the Obama administration said the air strike was a mistake through diplomatic channels. Secretary of State John Kerry's balancing act the past week is now compromised and the already shaky relations with the U.S. and Russia are more in doubt than ever.
This is only going to embolden Trump’s assertions that the U.S. Military and its leadership are mismanaging the fight against ISIS. Again, an event coincides to support some of Trump’s assertions, good or bad.It has been happening like clock work since he announced.
