For Republicans, it’s time for food and a side dish of politics.
The Erie County Republican Party will hold its Labor Day picnic Monday, from 1 to 4 p.m., at Southern Picnic Grove at Waldameer Park.
Picnic-goers are asked to bring a dish to share. Complimentary hot dogs and beverages will be served.
The event will feature U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson, of Howard Township, Centre County, R-5th Dist.
Republican candidates expected to attend are Robert Sambroak, for judge; Don Tucci, for county executive; Ned Smith, for Erie County Council, 2nd District; Edward DiMattio Jr., for County Council, 6th District; Eddie Whiteman, for sheriff.
Many local township candidates also are expected to attend.
