Will it go after Latino voters, who make up 18.8% of the County's population? Or how about black voters, at 6.1%.
That's too obvious. Instead, the local party is making a play for Lehigh County's Muslim voters.
All three of them.
Executive Director Bob Toth has sent this epistle to elected officials and candidates.
The Muslim Association of the Lehigh Valley will have an event to start the holy month of Ramadan on Thursday July, 26. This will be a great opportunity for you to reach out to Muslim voters in the Lehigh Valley. The event will begin at 7:15 pm and dinner will be served at 8:30.(Dinner must be served later than normal because according to Islamic tradition, one can not eat while the sun is up).
The Muslim Association will send out an invitation to the LCRC Office and when I receive it, I will scan it and send it out to you. Spouses/dates are welcome to attend as well. I do not know what the cost to attend is at this time, or if there will be a donation required or not.
For now, please save the date and let me know by June 1st if you plan on attending.
This event will be at the Muslim Association of Lehigh Valley ( MALV)
1988 Schadt Ave
Whitehall, PA 18052
They will also host a candidates' night on a date to be determined in August.
