Sullivan Dems hold 100th Jeffersonian Dinner

An annual Democratic shindig in Sullivan County that has featured the likes of Hillary Clinton, Eliot Spitzer and Andrew Cuomo in past years will have its 100th dinner next month.

This year’s Jeffersonian Dinner for the Sullivan County Democratic Committee will take place at 6 p.m. on Sept. 17 at the Eagle’s Nest Restaurant in Bloomingburg.

The invitation doesn’t say what politician will headline the event. State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli spoke at last year’s dinner, the 99th. Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie came the year before. Past luminaries include Clinton, who came in 2001, her first year in office as a U.S. senator for New York; Spitzer, who came in 2002 and 2004 while he was New York’s attorney general and before he was elected governor in 2006; and Cuomo, who – following in Spitzer’s footsteps – came in 2009 when he was attorney general and before being elected governor in 2010.

Tickets cost $65, and journal ads range in price from $75 to $500. Email scdcsecy@gmail.com for tickets and donnaschick@yahoo.com for advertising by Sept. 11.
