The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day at Gannon University’s Hammermill Center.

Wiley’s chief of staff,  Anthony Angelone, and his spokeswoman, Kim Thomas Plyler, talked about the early work that’s been done to date during a visit today to the Erie Times-News and GoErie.com.

The expo will serve not only as a jobs fair for veterans, but a one-stop shop where they will be able to access other services include government programs, educational opportunities, mental health services and more, they said.

Already, they said more than 100 vendors are expected at the event.

Wiley, of Millcreek, D-49th Dist.,  is hoping that the expo attracts 400 to 500 people, they said.

There will be more news on the expo as the date draws near.
