Eastern Sussex Republican Club holds summer picnic

August 18, 2013

Several members and guests of the Eastern Sussex Republican Club enjoyed a beautiful summer afternoon at a picnic held Aug. 4 at the Lewes home of Bob and Priscilla Clark. Following much camaraderie, the tasty barbecue and buffet, ESRC President Tony Matero took a brief opportunity to remind everyone that the upcoming 2014 elections are increasingly important, pointing to another term of one-party rule which has failed Delawareans who are still waiting for the fulfillment of promises to create more private-sector jobs and restore the state's diminished economic rating.
