The pictures were taken by Democratic State Committeeman and SEAD President Rob Frank on his cell phone (Thanks, Rob!)
Other pols in attendance included: Valerie McDonald Roberts, Allegheny County Recorder of Deeds; Rich Fitzgerald, Allegheny County Council President; John DeFazio, Allegheny County Council At-Large and Director of the United Steel Workers of America in Pennsylvania; Carmella Mullen, Vice-Chair of The Democratic Committee of Allegheny County; Laurie Williams, Chalfant Boro Council Member (Thanks for the ride!); and Chelsa Wagner who's running against Michael Diven for State Representative in the 22nd Legislative District.
The first ever national report on Wal-Mart subsidies documented at least $1 billion in subsidies from state and local governments -- over $59,000,000 coming from Pennsylvania alone!
Sen. John Edwards received an enthusiastic welcome from the crowd. If you remember his "Two Americas" stump speech, you'll recognize that he was a natural fit for this event.
The tour was co-sponsored by MoveOn.org and Democracy for America.
