For more information, please contact the Temple Performing Arts Center for more details:Can't wait to get a look-see at Democratic candidates lined up to oppose Gov. Corbett next year?
Well head out to Temple's Performing Arts Center (1837 N. Broad) on Saturday where five of the eight announced contenders are scheduled to offer thoughts on jobs, education, health-care and more.
The event is billed as a forum on impacting Philadelphia working families.
It's not a debate. That means no back and forth, but at least the chance to listen to who says what about how they'd lead the state.
Gov. Corbett was invited, too. Sponsors say he's unable to attend.
Confirmed participants are Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, state Treasurer Rob McCord, former state Environmental Protection secretaries John Hanger and Katie McGinty and former state Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf.
The forum is set from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. - Philadelphia Daily News, 11/21/13
Fight, fight for the cherry and the white!
