It is not uncommon to find the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Congressional Delegation making the extra effort to engage its constituencies. In response, each year the Ridge Policy Group makes its own effort to show our appreciation. This year, on February 3rd, we held our 5th Annual Welcome Back PA Delegation Event. This, of course, could not have happened without the indispensable sponsorships provided by Independence Blue Cross, the Marcellus Shale Coalition, Microbac Laboratories, Shipley Energy, Steptoe & Johnson PLLC, and the Geo Group.
For the event, we invited all of the PA delegation staff out to Bullfeathers for a brief break from what is turning out to be a very time consuming 114th Congress. As cited by Politico, Reps. Lou Barletta, Glenn “GT” Thompson, Scott Perry, Charlie Dent, Patrick Meehan, Ryan Costello, Brendan Boyle, Bill Shuster and Mike Doyle; Sen. Bob Casey; and former Gov. Tom Ridge were all in attendance. Throughout the night, approximately 150 industry members, staff members, and elected officials spent time chatting in a bipartisan fashion.
The event was a great success, and as a firm, we would like to thank all the parties involved, from our sponsors, to the attendees, to Bullfeathers itself. We hope to see you at more events in the future.
