From the South Pittsburgh Reporter: A Town Hall Meeting between U. S. Senator Arlen Specter and Western Pennsylvania’s Polish-American community will be held at the University of Pittsburgh on Thursday, April 16 at 7 p.m. in the Lower Lounge of the William Pitt Student Union, Bigelow Blvd and Fifth Avenue an the University of Pittsburgh main campus in Oakland.
The event is the result of an on-going “frank and honest dialogue” between leaders of the Polish-American community and Senator Specter in response to public remarks delivered by the senator in early December before the Commonwealth Club in New York City. During that address, Senator Specter made several disparaging comments that caused a negative public reaction and great concern within the Polish-American community. The April 16th event is an effort by area Polish-Americans to personally express their concerns to the senator, and to discuss other issues of importance to the community.
