New Third District Democratic Chairman, Phil Struzzerri, welcomed a large and loud crowd of about 240 people at their picnic yesterday at the Pittston American Legion picnic grounds. The food was very well received by the crowd.
All of the usual suspects were there from the area and the county except for Linda Houck, County Council candidate. Representative Mike Carroll was the MC and Sen. John Yudichak gave a spirited keynote speech urging Democratic unity in the upcoming election, and criticizing the irrational Republicans in both Washington and Harrisburg.
Alexandra Kokura was the star of the event. She was the first to arrive and the last to leave.
(rumor also heard... there is now a split between Katsock and Grinaway!)
