Dear AFSCME Council 1:
Last Sunday, November 6, 2011, on a beautiful, sunny day a record breaking number of people, about 500, attended a panel discussion on the subject of “Where Are The Jobs” at the Nassau Presbyterian Church. The panel consisting of an economist, a representative of labor and a community activist held the attention of the audience and generated many questions on the major crisis of our times, i.e. our economy, the number of unemployed and the present lack of jobs. The audience was very attentive during the entire two hour period. The conclusion was that the event was very successful.
The mid-Jersey Move On Council, part of the American Dream movement, wants to online casino extend its heartfelt thanks to your group for its co-sponsorship of this event. We know that your participation as a co-sponsor assured the success of this event in that it extended the outreach into the community thereby making larger numbers of people in the Princeton community and its adjacent environs aware that a forum would ?????? ?????? be held on a topic of great concern to folks in and around the surrounding area.
We very much look forward to working closely with you again in hopes that, by coming together in increasing numbers, we can have a greater impact in forcing solutions regarding pressing local and national problems.
