This is going to be very brief but I wanted to give a shout out to Alma Mater, Temple University in Philadelphia, PA:

Can't wait to get a look-see at Democratic candidates lined up to oppose Gov. Corbett next year?

Well head out to Temple's Performing Arts Center (1837 N. Broad) on Saturday where five of the eight announced contenders are scheduled to offer thoughts on jobs, education, health-care and more.

The event is billed as a forum on impacting Philadelphia working families.

It's not a debate. That means no back and forth, but at least the chance to listen to who says what about how they'd lead the state.

Gov. Corbett was invited, too. Sponsors say he's unable to attend.

Confirmed participants are Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, state Treasurer Rob McCord, former state Environmental Protection secretaries John Hanger and Katie McGinty and former state Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf.

The forum is set from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. - Philadelphia Daily News, 11/21/13

Several unions and local community groups including the AFSCME, Action United and SEIU are sponsoring the event.  It's unclear if Democratic candidates Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski, Lebanon County Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz, Cumberland County minister Max Myers will be attending the event.  For more information, please contact the Temple Performing Arts Center for more details:

Fight, fight for the cherry and the white!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
