Dick Cheney will be flying into town about 4 p.m. Monday to speak at a private fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Don Sherwood, R-Tunkhannock. The event will begin at 5 p.m. at the Dallas home of Harold Flack, president of Diamond Manufacturing.
But he won’t be staying long. Cheney will be departing the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport at 6:30 p.m., according to a schedule released by his office.
Last October, Cheney’s visit to the area caused traffic tie-ups on I-81 and Route 309. He came to Luzerne County for a similar fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum in which $300,000 was raised.
Monday’s invitation-only fundraiser costs $1,000 for individuals attending alone and $1,500 per couple, according to Sherwood’s office.
