Commonwealth Club Is Hosted in Philly
WELCOMING State Sen. John Rafferty, left, was GOP Ward Leader Mike Cibik, whose lovely Old City home is a favorite venue for intimate top-level Republican get-togethers – like this one at the end of August, for prominent Commonwealth Club members.
STATE REP. John Taylor, the leading urban-policy craftsman among Penna Republicans, was prominent at the Commonwealth Club event. He is seen here with Delaware County GOP activist Dr. Carolina Baltazar Harris.
ATTENDING Mike Cibik’s gathering were many midstate GOP big shots such as, from left, Joyce Haas, Vice Chair of the state party; Ted Brown, Penn State trustee (and Joe Paterno supporter); and Judith Wilson, Centre County Republican Vice Chair.
OTTO VOIT, left, who is running for State Treasurer, came down from Berks County with his Campaign Mgr. Jack Gombach and with Berks County Commissioner Christian Leinbach.
CITY Republican Jim Pio, state rep candidate; Joe DeFelice, RCC chair; and Brian McCann, N.E. activist, were glad to welcome out-of-town Commonwealth Clubbers to Phila.
BUSINESS leaders at the Commonwealth Club soirée included Anita Lewis and Bill George.
