The testimony continues today. I also thank Matt Keris, Esquire of the Moosic, PA office of Marshall, Dennehey, Warner, Coleman & Goggin for the tip that a reporter for the Citizen’s Voice is providing constant updates via Twitter at http://twitter.com/cvmikesisak if you would like to follow, or get periodic updates during the day.
