Profiles In Courage: Chaka Fattah

While Western Pa’s Congressman Jack Murtha avoids holding townhalls, Philadelphia’s Chaka Fattah (also a Democrat) will be holding a forum / townhall on health care on Tuesday the 25th.

Guess where?

SEIU Headquarters!

MEDIA ADVISORY: Coverage Invited TUESDAY
Rep. Fattah Will Address Healthcare Forum

PHILADELPHIA — Congressman Chaka Fattah, a strong advocate for President Obama’s Healthcare Reform plan with a robust public insurance option, will address a healthcare forum tomorrow. Fattah last week called for a national March for Healthcare in Washington in September.

YOUR COVERAGE IS INVITED AT TUESDAY’S HEALTHCARE FORUM.

WHO: Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA)

WHAT: Alliance for Retired Americans Healthcare Forum

WHEN: Tuesday August 25, 2009 at 11 a.m.

WHERE: SEIU Local 1202 headquarters
455 N. 5th Street
Philadelphia PA

A townhall during the workday at a union office.

Gutless.

Just a hunch here, but I’m thinking it will be a very receptive crowd.

    When Congressman Tim Bishop’s Office sent out a press release that he would be holding a Town Hall at Long Island SEIU Headquarters we showed up and Bishop stayed away (the wimp).

    Things were touch and go for a while until more of our folks showed up, but in the end the union guys (and there were several unions involved) left at the stroke of five.

    Here’s the report:

    Best advice, get there early and own the territory before the unions arrive.

    Go get ‘em!

    P.S. We had one of those signs! They hated it!
