Breakfast In Burgettstown

THANK YOU to everyone who participated yesterday in our "Meet the Candidate" Breakfast Picnic at Burgettstown Community Park! We had a very good turnout and I think a good time was had by all.

I would especially like to thank Jen Bertha and Debbie Guiddy for planning the event. Jen and Debbie did the shopping for us and coordinated the set-up. Thanks also to Raegene Stetar, Jim Guiddy and Meryl Hatton for their help!

Among the Burgettstown-area residents who joined us yesterday morning were Jim Reedy and his family. Jim leads the Burgettstown Kids Center, which was the driving force behind creation of the Burgettstown Community Park. The park is a testament to the generosity and strong work ethic of the people of Burgettstown Borough and the surrounding townships. Opened recently in a once vacant lot, the park features a pavilion, large gazebo, basketball courts and lots of playground equipment.

If I am elected to the PA House on November 7, look for me to be to be an advocate and partner for projects like the Burgettstown Community Park throughout the 46th District.

An aside: the picnic also provided me an opportunity to recognize my grandmothers, Dolores Vincenti Hoag and Anna Summerville Snatchko, both of whom joined us for the event.
