Biden to speak in Detroit on Labor Day


DETROIT - Vice President Joe Biden, who was just in Detroit last week, will make another campaign stop there Monday during the annual Labor Day parade.

He will be speaking at the corner of West Lafayette Boulevard and Shelby Street.

Those interested in obtaining a ticket can stop by an Obama For America office in the Detroit area starting at 9 a.m. Saturday. Distribution will continue through Sunday if tickets remain. Tickets are required for entry, with one ticket per person.

The Michigan AFL-CIO has posted a notice on its Facebook page saying the vice president would be taking part in a parade beginning at 9 a.m. and a rally at noon. The parade starts at Michigan Avenue at Trumbull Street.

Last year, President Barack Obama spoke in Detroit on Labor Day.

Vice President Biden spoke last week at Detroit’s Renaissance High School. He also spoke last month to a teacher’s conference in Detroit.
