Mayor skips NE Chamber for a visit to D.C.

May­or Mi­chael Nut­ter’s long-planned lunch­eon with the Great­er North­east Phil­adelphia Cham­ber of Com­merce has been post­poned.

Nut­ter was sup­posed to dine and speak with Cham­ber mem­bers on Thursday.

However, late last week, the may­or’s of­fice in­formed the Cham­ber that Pres­id­ent Obama had re­ques­ted that Nut­ter travel to Wash­ing­ton, D.C., to dis­cuss the is­sue of as­sault weapons.

More than 175 people had already bought tick­ets to the lunch­eon, and they will either be giv­en a re­fund or have their re­ser­va­tion moved to the res­ched­uled date, which is Thursday, March 21 at Know­lton Man­sion, at Rhawn Street and Ver­ree Road in Fox Chase.

The Cham­ber thanks Know­lton own­er Jack Con­roy for fa­cil­it­at­ing the switch. ••
