Lobbies mayor for zoo

9 Jun, 2014

10 year old Gingrich tells his mother he is going to the library but instead goes to the Harrisburg mayor’s office to make the case for a local zoo. The mayor sends him to the local newspaper, where Newt informs the editor

your mayor and I were talking about Harrisburg having a zoo. He thought you might give us some newspaper support.

The editor asks Gingrich to write a column on the subject, which runs on the front page.
