Meet and Greet with John Fetterman, Candidate for Lieutenant Governor of PA, Tuesday in Emporium

Meet and Greet with John Fetterman,
Candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania.

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 from 6 to 730 pm.

This will be held in the back room of the Barbara Brown Moscato Library in Emporium.

John Fetterman, the current mayor of Braddock in Allegheny County, has emerged as one of Pennsylvania’s leading progressive voices for working people, running on issues like inequality, racial justice, and ending the failed war on drugs – issues that Democrats recognize as key to winning over and turning out voters.

John is a true American success story. Pennsylvania born and raised, John was born to teenage parents who were just starting out on their own. At the time, his father worked nights to put himself through college. John grew up in York, and later followed in his father’s footsteps to Albright College, where he played offensive tackle for the Lions.

At the age of 23, Fetterman joined up with Big Brothers/Big Sisters, mentoring an 8-yr. old boy who had recently lost his father to AIDS and whose mother was battling the disease. With John’s mentoring, his “little brother” graduated from college, a promise Fetterman made to the boy’s mother. John continued his service to his fellow man by joining AmeriCorps two years later.

He went on to earn a Masters in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where he focused on finding solutions in social work, business, and public policy to confront urban challenges and economic inequality. John then returned to Pennsylvania to start a GED program in the town of Braddock, a town facing many obstacles. He focused on turning Braddock into a thriving and growing community.

In 2005, John ran for mayor. He managed to win the crowded primary by a single vote, and he’s been hard at work ever since. During the last 13 years as mayor, John has worked to build Braddock back from the verge of extinction. In 2018, John decided to run for Lt. Governor to be a champion for struggling towns all over Pennsylvania, places like Braddock that have gotten a raw deal.

Please come meet John. Refreshments will be served.

"places like Braddock that have gotten a raw deal."

What was the raw deal that Braddock experienced? I can't attend the meeting so I hoped he would elaborate on this venue.
