The Sullivan County Democratic Dinner is being held at 6 p.m on Sunday, Oct. 27, at the Crestmont in Eagles Mere. All folks are welcome.
It will be an evening of information and education. Seniors are particularly concerned about the effects of health care reform. Locally, Marcellus Shale is a concern to all of the county.
Congressman Chris Carney will be the keynote speaker of the evening. The congressman has been endorsed by the NRA as well as the International, Statewide and local firefighters. Carney was a first responder for four-plus years and was on more than 1,300 ambulance calls and responded alongside firefighters.
Carney has represented the county well during the past four years. Learn about his positions on illegal immigration, the Wall Street bailout, the mortgage bail out, Cap & Trade, the reform of Wall Street, consumer protection, Afghanistan, veterans, health care, agriculture, English as the official language, amnesty for illegal aliens, energy, and natural gas. These are issues in which he represents all the people of Sullivan County and their values well. Come learn about his voting record and make an informed decision on Nov. 2.
Sullivan County Democratic Commissioner Bob Getz will give “A State of the County” delivery and educate attendants on the issues and what he is doing to resolve them here in the county.
In addition, Alison Hirsch, of the Pa Health Care Access Network will explain the affects of the Affordable Care Act, health care reform, on seniors and other positive aspects of the legislation on us all.
This is an important dinner, stated county chair Germaine Donahue.
“We have Congressman Carney to re-elect as well as again electing a Democratic Governor, Lt. Governor and Senator. We want all the residents of Sullivan County to know the facts, not myths of what our candidates accomplished and what they stand for.”
From 6 to 7 p.m. has been set aside as an opportunity to meet with the candidates with the dinner and program commencing at 7 p.m.
The buffet includes ham and steamship of beef, baked potato, corn, broccoli with cheese, cole slaw, apple sauce, chocolate cream or coconut cream pie, rolls butter coffee, tea, iced tea and lemonade.
