The BTDC Summer Celebration 2022

July 18, 2022

Thanks to all who attended our annual picnic at Pleasant Valley Park! The food was fantastic, and the live music by Josh Conklin and friends was excellent! The event was organized by Nancy D’Andrea and Sima Guven, with catering by Suzy Saidi of Eventix, LLC. It was great to connect with our district representatives, supporters and several candidates, including Congressman Tom Malinowski, Somerset County Clerk Steve Peter, County Commissioner Melonie Marano, County Sheriff Darrin Russo, and our candidate for Bernards Township Committee, Jessica Simpson-Cook! Somerset County Democratic Committee Chair Peg Schaeffer also joined the party. Photos courtesy of Betsy Bacot.
