Boscov said Wednesday that it was crucial for both federal and state officials – preferably Gov. Tom Corbett – to take part in the proposed group discussion of Reading’s crime problems. He said both U.S. Sens. Bob Casey Jr. and Pat Toomey have agreed to take part and that he was working to secure Corbett’s participation.
“I think he will come,” Boscov said.
A spokeswoman for Corbett said Wednesday night that he had not been invited to a summit but was open to the concept.
