Kanjorski to join Bush at depot
By MICHAEL P. BUFFER email@example.com
U.S. Rep. Paul Kanjorski plans to accompany President Bush during a Veterans Day speech at Tobyhanna Army Depot on Friday.
Bush is expected to make a 50-minute policy speech on fighting terrorism at about noon, said Kanjorski, D-Nanticoke. The audience will be mostly depot employees, the congressman said.
The White House will issue a limited number of tickets, Kanjorski said. The depot, which repairs and maintains electronic equipment, is the largest employer in Northeastern Pennsylvania with more than 4,300 civilian workers.
White House spokesman Allen Abney confirmed the president will give a speech Friday in Northeast Pennsylvania to discuss terrorism and thank and honor veterans. Abney said the White House plans to issue an advisory about the speech and its location tomorrow.
The president is not visiting the area for political reasons, Kanjorski said. On Oct. 21, Vice President Dick Cheney attended a fund-raiser for U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pittsburgh, in Jackson Township."
