JRE to Speak at Conference in June

ERIE – In a year that has seen conventional political predictions pushed aside, two former presidential candidates will offer their insider’s view of the race for the White House. John Edwards and Fred Thompson will be the featured speakers at the Manufacturers’ Association’s 103rd Annual Event Wednesday, June 18 at the Bayfront Convention Center.

Former White House press secretary Tony Snow will bring his unique experience and serve as the moderator of the event.

“It has been a truly unpredictable presidential race full of great storylines,” said Association Chairman Gerald B. Eighmy, president of American Turned Products. “Who better than John Edwards and Fred Thompson to offer our membership a unique glimpse into the campaign trail and the pulse of the American electorate?

  • You know, I'd almost forgotten that Fred Thompson was even in the race.

  • Yeah, some blogger snarked at both of them, calling the panel "FredHead" and Edwards, "Mr Silky."

    Last year, I believe the speakers were James Carville and Mary Matlin.
