SMAC PAC held a pair of fundraisers for industry champions on baseball’s opening at our shared suite at Nationals Park in Washington, DC. The special fundraising events were for Members of Congress representing districts in California and Pennsylvania. One fundraiser was for Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA). Rep. Fitzpatrick's district comprises the Philadelphia suburbs in Bucks and Montgomery County. He sits on the House Ways & Means Committee and the Select Committee on Intelligence. Dominic Bonitatis, CEO of Prime Sheetmetal (and a member of SMACNA Philadelphia and the SMAC PAC committee), joined Political Pacesetter and SMAC PAC Treasurer Stan Kolbe, also in attendance.
A separate event was held in an adjacent suite for Rep. Jimmy Panetta (D-CA). Mr. Panetta's district includes much of California's Central Coast, including Monterey, Salinas, Santa Cruz, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and Paso Robles. He currently sits on the House Ways and Means Committee, the Committee on Agriculture, and the House Armed Services Committee.
