Katie McGinty Keynote Speaker At Elk Country Multi-County Democratic Picnic July 12 At Benezette

Katie McGinty
The Elk County Democratic Committee is honored to announce that Katie McGinty will be giving the keynote address at the upcoming Elk Country Multi-County Democratic Picnic on Saturday, July 12th, 2014. McGinty will be attending as a representative of the Tom Wolf for Governor campaign.

A tireless environmental advocate, McGinty served in the Clinton administration as Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality. She later was appointed by Governor Ed Rendell to serve as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection, the first woman ever to hold the position. During her tenure as Secretary, she helped attract leading clean energy companies to Pennsylvania, bringing a billion dollars in new investment and creating 3000 new jobs in the state. Most recently, Katie was chosen by Democratic Governor Candidate Tom Wolf to head his newly formed "The Campaign for a Fresh Start" political action committee.

McGinty will be joined at the podium by Elk County District Attorney Shawn McMahon, former State Representative Bud George, Admiral Joe Sestak, State Representative candidates Jack Donahue (PA-75) and Toby Santik (PA-66), US House of Representative candidate Kerith Strano Taylor (US-PA5), and Todd Eagen who is considering a run for Commonweath Court Judge.

The picnic, which starts at 1:00pm on the 12th, is being held at the Dudley Farm, 1511 Winslow Hill Road in Benezette, PA, just minutes from the state of the art Elk Country Visitor Center in the heart of Pennsylvania's wild elk herd. Advanced ticket reservations are still being taken and can be obtained by calling Rich at (814) 594-5500. Tickets are $10 and include a catered BBQ dinner.
