Scranton Chamber Hosts Government Affairs Forum for 8th Congressional District

Chamber News

We recently held a Government Affairs Forum with 8th Congressional District candidates, U.S. Representative Matthew Cartwright and James Bognet.

Moderated by Bob Durkin, Scranton Chamber president, each candidate was given 45 minutes to discuss important topics related to their campaigns, as well as answer questions about workforce and education, business development, healthcare, the CARES and Heroes Acts, and more. Attendees were given the opportunity to submit questions ahead of time, as well as during the forum.

“We are thankful to Congressman Cartwright and Jim Bognet for participating in today’s forum and for providing our members an opportunity to hear from local candidates discussing matters that directly affect them,” said Bob Durkin.

Fellow Chamber sponsors included The Greater Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce, The Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, and The Chamber of the Northern Poconos.

Thank you to our Chamber partners:
