It sounds like Congressman Barletta ought to be receptive to Mr. Smith’s offer.
Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional district has recognized a liaison whose purpose is to advocate for the interests of minorities, but as of yet there is no special advisor to represent the interests of the district’s white citizens. Steve Smith, A3P state chairman of Pennsylvania, is ready to fill that void.
U.S. Representative Lou Barletta, who was sworn into office on January 5, 2011, has appointed Angel Jirau as an unpaid volunteer whose role is to make sure that the concerns of the minority community are heard by Rep. Barletta’s office.
Mr. Jirau also serves as a member of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs. The 18-member board advises the governor on the needs and interests of the Latino residents of Pennsylvania.
