Congressman Mike Doyle to Speak on Campus

Congressman Mike Doyle will speak to a strategic business planning class at Penn State Greater Allegheny on Monday, March 3, 2008 at noon. The topic of his discussion will be "The Democratic Election Strategy and the Role of the Super Delegates."

Dr. Michelle Hough, assistant professor of business, decided to invite Congressman Doyle to speak to her class. "When 1 saw his photo and read the article in Time Magazine, I thought, who better than a congressman to speak to my class about election strategies?" stated Hough. "With the elections upon us, I thought it would be perfect timing to invite a speaker to my class. The fact that Congressman Doyle happens to be one of the Super Delegates made it an easy choice."

Congressman Mike Doyle is currently serving his seventh term in Congress representing the 14th District of Pennsylvania, which includes the city of Pittsburgh as well as communities in the western, southern, and eastern portions of Allegheny County.

Doyle is a member in the House Democratic Caucus and the founder and co-chair of the recently formed Autism Caucus, also known as the Coalition for Autism Research and Education (C.A.R.E.). Doyle also serves on several other important Caucuses, such as Steel, Human Rights, and the Internet. He is also a member of the Leadership Pittsburgh Alumni Organization, the Lions Club, the Ancient Order of Hibernians,  Italian Sons and Daughters of America (ISDA), and the Penn State Alumni Association.

Doyle is a graduate of Penn State, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Development in 1975.

Doyle's discussion begins at noon and will be held in the Ostermayer Room in the Student Community Center. The discussion is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Linda Curinga at 412-675-9180.
