Rep. Jennifer Mann on Lehigh Valley Discourse

Among the changes that the 2012 election will bring is a new representative for Pennsylvania’s 132nd district, long served by Jennifer Mann.  Representative Mann was elected at the age of 28 and served seven terms.  She has lots to say and Alan Jennings, host of Lehigh Valley Discourse, will be giving her a venue to do so this Thursday.  The two will talk about her experiences, the difference she made, her regrets, what’s wrong and what’s right about politics in the 21st century, and the implications of the first election in 14 years in which her name isn’t on the ballot.

Children's Issues the Focus of Lehigh Valley Discourse

If, indeed, children are our future, as so many like to say, what might that future look like, given the many challenges our children face: declining resources for education, intervention when they are victimized by predators, and nutrition programs, neighborhoods that are unsafe and so much more.  With an election just a few weeks away, the public policy debate appears to be ignoring this critically important but voiceless constituency.
