Clinton Visits Stroudsburg High School

I guess we Mounties are officially on the map! March_08_003

Former President William Jefferson Clinton came to Stroudsburg last night to campaign for his wife Hillary who is seeking the Democratic Nomination for President. The Primary Election is on April 22.

(Do you know where to vote? Monroe County Polling Places)

The crowd was large despite the nasty, rainy weather. People started lining up at around 3:30pm and they started letting people in around 5 o'clock. There was a great representative mix of people there, including teachers and other school staff, veterans, and a variety of adults and children. I was especially pleased to see a good number of young people...the not-quite-old-enough-to-vote set...there to see democracy in action. Teenagers, like my daughters, who are learning about government and politics in school and have an interest in experiencing it first hand. It was very exciting for them, especially, to see a President in person!

March_08_012President Clinton, who was given a hearty welcome and introduction by Congressman Paul Kanjorski, began his speech around 7:30 and spoke for almost an hour.

This visit topped off a long day of campaigning in Pennsylvania, which included stops in the Lehigh Valley and Wilkes Barre.
