Maloney plans three-day fundraising “retreat”

For big-dollar campaign donors, this has got to sound better than a rubber-chicken dinner in D.C.

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney is inviting supporters to what amounts to a destination wedding for the congressional fundraising world: a three-day “retreat” in his Hudson Valley district in October, in the midst of leaf-peeping season.

An early announcement for the Cold Spring Democrat’s “Inaugural Hudson Valley Retreat” gives only the dates and the name of the boutique hotel, restaurant and banquet hall in Beacon that apparently will serve as the home base from which guests will take regional excursions. Tickets to the Oct. 14-16 sojourn at the Roundhouse Beacon cost $2,500 a person, just under the $2,700 individual contribution limit for congressional races.

Maloney, who’s serving his third term in Congress, had $2.6 million in his campaign account as of June 30 and has no announced challengers yet for 2018. He represents New York’s 18th Congressional District, which includes all of Orange and Putnam counties and parts of Dutchess and Westchester.
