The reception at Vanderlyn's Restaurant in Kingston included highlights of Rep. Mundy's legislative work from Steve Stroman, state policy director. PennFuture staff was represented by Pam Fendrock, Kate Gibbons, Mike Helbing and Mark Szybist. Local environmental and non-profit groups and constituents and non-constituents alike chatted with Rep. Mundy and friends. State Representatives Eddie Day Pashinski and Karen Boback, and Congressman Matt Cartwright's District Manager, Bob Morgan, were among those who attended.
We've had the opportunity to work with Rep. Mundy in Harrisburg and at home in her district as she's worked on issues confronting watersheds and the Susquehanna River, promoted public health and protected drinking water supplies from drilling, and worked for clean-up of mine-scarred lands across the district. Thank you to a legislative champion!
