Scranton Times Spotlights PA Politcal Society
A good read
The $250-a-person dinner is the crescendo of four days of parties, luncheons and receptions sponsored by lobbyists, large corporations and political candidates.
Members and their guests can attend the dinner, but you don't have to be in the society to take part in the side events."There'll be a lot of deals made here," said Jerry Morgan, U.S. Rep. Don Sherwood's right-hand man. "It's a great place to come to make a deal."
Rarely do you get so many of Pennsylvania's elite business, government and political movers and shakers in one place together. So they aren't there just to renew days of auld lang syne.
"This is the Supreme Council of politicking," said Michael Clark of Pittston, who worked as an aide to the late U.S. Rep. Daniel J. Flood."
