CARTWRIGHT 3rd ANNUAL PICNIC RECAP
Congressman Matt Cartwright hosted his Third Annual Family Picnic at the Mercatili Segilia Park in Moosic. A casually attired crowd of about 150 mingled and talked politics on a beautiful summer Saturday afternoon. The catering was done by Wyoming Mayor Bob Boyer and was as always top rate. During the event remarks were offered by U.S. Senator Bob Casey and Congressman Cartwright. Cartwright outlined his first two years of working across the aisle in trying to accomplish results for the newly formed 17th District. In the fall campaign Cartwright will face off against GOP nominee Schuylkill County Coroner David Moylan.

Speaking of Mr. Casey, I had the opportunity to say hello to him at the event. Here I am with outgoing State Representative Phyllis Mundy and Senator Casey. (Photo: Cartwright staff).
Here is a photo of Mundy with her presumed successor Eileen Tracy Cipriani who by the way was celebrating a birthday on the same day as the event. Mundy is speaking with Pauline Delaney.
Another Eileen who was in attendance was Luzerne County Council member Eileen Sorokas and her husband Rick. Rick took the photo.
Here’s a front view of Ms. Delaney who brought a few teachers with her to the event. In the background you can see other people at the event. Delaney sported a shirt proclaiming Luzerne County Democrats.
Two guys having a great time were energetic State Committeeman Tom Shibulla and Adam Ciechosli.
Here is a long shot of politicos discussing the issues of the day right outside the Pavilion.
The organizers sold a great deal of Cartwright For Congress tee shirts at the event..but I think they would have sold out if they used this picture of Joelle Barnes and me.
