Art Exhibit tomorrow August 3 in Williamsport

Come down to Democratic Headquarters 337 Pine St. Williamsport for First Friday. My exhibit "Birds and Others" will be on display with music by Doug McMinn and cake to celebrate President Obama's birthday! 5-9pm.

This has been a very busy summer on the campaign trail. We have been to the Ralston parade, Montrose parade, Lewisburg parade, Demfest at Knoebels Grove, Lycoming County Fair in Hughsville, and the Troy Fair in Bradford County.

Coming up will be the Victorian Tea in Laporte, Union County West End Fair, Harford Fair in Susquehanna County, and Sullivan County Fair in Forksville.

I look forward to meeting you at one of these events!

We had a very busy day yesterday.  We attended the rally for education in Harrisburg at the Capitol rotunda and visited with Representative Mirabito to encourage him to vote increased school funding. Later we drove to Milford to meet with the Susquehanna County Democrats.

Today Aqua America will begin to tear down some of what is left of the Riverdale Mobile Home Park in Jersey Shore, PA.

I attended Hands across Riverdale Prayer Vigil last evening. While it was going on people were trying to salvage what they could: their outdoor plants and the siding from their former homes to sell for scrap.
