Board Chair Karen Brackett, NexTier Bank, welcomed the close to 100 area businesses at our 2018 Legislative Breakfast on May 18, 2018 at the Butler Country Club. We were pleased to offer this event to the area businesses as a partnership with the Butler County Tourism and Convention Bureau and the Community Development Corporation of Butler County with our additional sponsors XTO Energy, PA American Water Company and The Gateway Engineers. The purpose of this annual event is twofold, first we want the Butler County Business Community to have the opportunity to meet our State Legislators in person, and secondly, we are interested in hearing from them the specific committees they serve on and what legislation we should be educating ourselves on. Our guests included State Senator Scott Hutchinson, State Senator Elder Vogel, Jr., State Representative Aaron Bernstine, State Representative Brian Ellis, State Representative R. Lee James, State Representative Tedd Nesbit and State Representative Jeff Pyle. The Butler County Chamber is proud of the relationship we have with our legislators and trust that they feel comfortable calling upon us when needed.
