Lou Barletta and Digger

I had the pleasure to interview Mayor Lou Barletta of Hazleton, Pennsylvania tonight, October 16, 2007. Ruth and I were attending a Republican candidate dinner we had been invited to and to which I had reluctantly gone to. The only reason I really went is because Mayor Lou Barletta was attending. Little did I know I would end up with much more than I expected as we were seated at the same table as Mayor Lou Barletta and the RNC chairman for Berks County, Mark Gillen. I will be reporting on the RNC dinner in a later post.

So after I introduced myself to Mayor Barletta and sat down and ate my salad I noticed that there was a little break in time where Lou was not engaging in conversation and had finished his salad. I jumped at the chance and asked him for an impromptu interview.

Lou Barletta Interviewed by Digger

As unprepared as I was - and with only my knowledge of covering Hazleton's trial and Illegal Immigration Relief Act for more than a year - I interviewed him.

I would like to apologize for all of the background noise in advance and my obviously unprepared questions based off of a few points I had quickly written on a notepad. Also the interview was cut short as other things intervened. I had a few other questions to ask on the Joey Vento "Order in English" signs and on California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's recent signing of a bill outlawing any city in California from implementing an ordinance like the Illegal Immigration Relief Act that was passed in Hazleton. I did get to ask that question though in the question and answer portion after his speech. I will post that soon and link to it.

For more of my coverage on Hazleton see the Hazleton archive.
