Fattah Backs Effort to Bring 2016 Democratic Convention to Philadelphia

WASHINGTON, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA), 10-term Congressman from Philadelphia, released the following statement on Philadelphia's effort to bid for the 2016 Democratic National Convention:  

"I am in full support of the effort organized by Congressman Bob Brady to position Philadelphia for a successful bid to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Not only would it be a major economic boost for the city, and our hotel and tourism business—it would have a considerable long-term impact on the community."

"I can think of no better place for the Democrats to convene in 2016 than Philadelphia. Fourteen years ago we hosted the 2000 Republican Convention to rave reviews. I look forward to showcasing our world-class city to the DNC as we launch this exciting bid."
