This morning, I was pleased to attend a breakfast meeting of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce held at the Golf Club of Washington. Earlier this year, my campaign committee became a member of the Chamber. If elected on November 7, I would seek to be a partner with the Chamber in strengthening the county's business climate and stimulating job creation.
Today's breakfast speaker was from the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. All of Western Pennsylvania falls into the Fed's 4th District, which is headquartered in Cleveland -- but they do have more than 300 people working out of an office in Pittsburgh. According to the speaker, all U.S. Savings Bonds nation-wide are now processed through the Pittsburgh office.
