Fellow chapter board member Drew Gavlik and I had the privilege of meeting with Congressman Mike Kelly (R-3rd Pa.) in his district recently. The Congressman’s district covers most of our chapter’s area in Northwestern Pennsylvania.
We were pleased to present him with a check from the Safari Club International Political Action Committee (SCI-PAC) for his reelection campaign.
We have met with him in Washington, D.C. on numerous occasions during our day on Capitol Hill at the May board meetings. It was good to have some one-on-one time with him in his district to thank him for supporting the goals of SCI. We also appreciated the fact that after our first meeting in D.C., he joined the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus.
We all need to show our appreciation to our congressional leaders who support SCI and the things that we believe in. The future of hunting rests in our hands and we must do all we can to support those rights.– By Mike Drewnowski, SCI Director at Large and Past Chapter President East Ohio – Northwest Pennsylvania Chapter
