Opposition groups plan protests

President George W. Bush will be speaking at Blair tomorrow, June 23, at 9 a.m., in the auditorium. He will be hosting an event to discuss his plans for Social Security.

Several groups that oppose Bush's plan to add personal accounts to Social Security, such as Progressive Maryland, MoveOn and Americans United to Protect Social Security, will be holding a rally at the same time as Bush's event at Blair. The demonstration will be held at the Woodmoor Shopping Center, across the street from Blair, at 8:30 a.m.

At 11:30 a.m., local Democratic leaders, including Rep. Chris Van Hollen and County Executive Doug Duncan, will hold a press conference in the Blair parking lot to voice their opposition to Bush's Social Security privatization plan.
