            All of the congressional candidates from Districts 4 and 9 were represented at the event, with Dan David (District 4), Dan Meuser and Denny Wolff (District 9) in attendance and Bob Dean present to speak on behalf of his sister, Madeline Dean (District 4). Following sponsor introductions and breakfast catered by The Valley Café, each of the candidates had an opportunity to address Chamber members in attendance with their platforms.

Both Kelly and the candidates were available to speak to after the breakfast.

            This was the final event of the Legislative Series for 2018 and the Chamber wishes to extend a special thanks to Legislative Series sponsors Gillespie Electric, Inc. and PPL, as well as the August Breakfast sponsors The H&K Group and Montgomery County Community College, and host venue the Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center. The Chamber is looking forward to another dynamic Legislative Series of events in 2019.
