Rep. Cartwright to talk economic development at LVEDC investors event

By , - Last modified: March 28, 2014 at 9:53 AM

The Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corp. is hosting a “conversation and cocktails” event today with U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-17, in Easton.

Cartwright was elected in 2012 to represent heavily reconfigured 17th U.S. Congressional District, which now includes Easton and several townships in Northampton County.

"Rather than engage in a policy of austerity, we need to invest in building a workforce of talented people who are earning family-sustaining wages," said Cartwright on the issue of economic development. "I have spoken about investing in infrastructure often; now is the time to build our workforce and move to greater economic prosperity."

The event is 3:15-5 p.m. at the Bank Street Annex in Easton.

It is part of a series designed to spur conversation on economic development in the region.

The LVEDC describes the series as an "opportunity to have targeted interactions with members of the Lehigh Valley's public and private sector in an intimate setting."

There will be hors d'oeuvres, beer and wine. The event is free for all LVEDC investors.
