WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:
Today in St. Petersburg, about 30 local members of MoveOn.org rallied for half an hour in front of Congressman Bill Young’s office. The activists then delivered a petition to Young’s local staff, asking that he support President-Elect Obama’s Economic Recovery Plan.
Joe Illingworth is the Pinellas County Coordinator for MoveOn.Org. He discussed whether it is too early to pressure members of Congress to support legislation that has yet to be officially written.
Congressman Young is in Washington today. Illingworth said it’s his group’s goal to meet with the Congressman next month about this and other pending legislation.
