War with Iraq & America’s Struggling Economy Will Be Focus of Discussion at Carper Town Hall Meetings

WILMINGTON, DE -With military action impending in Iraq, the nation’s economy continuing to struggle, and Congress renewing the discussion on the President’s budget, Delaware will have a lot to talk about at Senator Tom Carper’s upcoming town hall meetings. Carper will hold open door meetings in each one of the state’s three counties later this month. “Our nation is facing a number of critical challenges both here at home and abroad. We have tens of thousands of troops marching into a potential war at the same time tens of millions of baby boomers are marching towards retirement, Carper said. “We need a budget that meets these challenges head-on in a fiscally responsible manner.” The dates and times of the meetings are: Saturday, February 15, 2003 2:00-4:00 p.m. Delaware Biotechnology Institute Delaware Technology Park, 15 Innovation Way Newark, DE Call 302-573-6291 to RSVP Saturday, February 22, 2003 10:00 a.m.- 12 Noon Wesley College, Room CC206 120 North State Street Dover, DE Call 302-674-3308 to RSVP Saturday, February 22, 2003 1:30 p.m.- 3:30 p.m. Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus Route 18, Seashore Highway Georgetown, DE Call 302-856-7690 to RSVP
