Manufacturing Diaspora

A national Town Hall meeting, hosted by John Ratzenberger, will be held in Pittsburgh, PA at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, Nov. 13, in the Heinz History Center, 1212 Smallman Street. Pennsylvania bloggers are invited to attend and cover the event. A brief summary:

1. The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM), a national, non-partisan organization based in Washington, DC, is sponsoring the event.

2. The meeting will be hosted by TV’s John Ratzenberger (‘Cheers,’ The Travel Channel’s ‘Made in America’).

3. The event will focus on Pennsylvania’s continuing loss of manufacturing jobs. Voters will be encouraged to ask candidates blunt questions about what they’ll do to help save U.S. manufacturing.

4. Attendance is free, and is open to the general public. Bloggers are encouraged to RSVP in order to reserve media seating and prime Internet access.

5. Post-show interviews with John Ratzenberger must be arranged via RSVP before the event.
