Program Page 2PEC’s Philadelphia Environmental Partnership Dinner has long been the premier environmental event in Philadelphia. Dozens of the region’s leading companies are sponsors and the dinner draws a large and diverse audience comprised of business leaders, lawyers, consultants, environmentalists, academics, and government officials.

The event will commence with a welcome reception and silent auction, followed by the program, and conclude with a “movable feast” of stationed food, open bar, and plenty of networking opportunities. Click here for a complete list of silent auction items.

For more than 30 years, Madonna has taught and written about his two academic specialties: the American presidency, along with American political parties and political behavior. As a pollster in recent years, he has written extensively about voters and voting behavior. A frequent political analyst and public affair’s commentator, Madonna has provided analysis to the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, National Public Radio, CNN, ABC News, and CBS News to name a few. He holds a Ph.D. in Political History from the University of Delaware and has received numerous awards and honors, including recipient of a Distinguished Professor award by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and being named “Outstanding Speaker of the Year” by the Speech Communication Society of Pennsylvania.

Madonna founded the Keystone Poll in 1992, the oldest survey produced exclusively in Pennsylvania. In 2008, the Keystone Poll was renamed the Franklin and Marshall College Poll. In this capacity, he is the pollster for the Philadelphia Daily News, WPVI-ABC6 (Philadelphia), Harrisburg Patriot News/PennlivePittsburgh Tribune-Review, and WTAE-TV (Pittsburgh), among others. In 2008 Franklin and Marshall College began a partnership with Hearst TV to conduct national polls directed by Madonna.

Madonna is also the host of “Pennsylvania Newsmakers,” a weekly statewide news and commentary program and he co-authors a bi-weekly political commentary column, “Politically Uncorrected,” for Politicspa.com, the state’s leading political website. The column appears in many state and national newspapers and also on two national websites: stateline.org and realclearpolitics.com.

Not only will we be joined by renowned political analyst and keynote speaker G. Terry Madonna, the candidates for Pennsylvania Attorney General will also deliver brief comments on Wednesday night at Philadelphia’s Crystal Tea Room.

Democratic candidate and Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro will be on hand, while Republican candidate and Pennsylvania Senator John Rafferty will provide a prepared statement. Josh Shapiro serves as the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners for Pennsylvania’s third-largest county where he is responsible for a budget of $370 million and over 2,300 employees. Shapiro also serves as Chairman of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, where he’s worked to improve public safety in communities across the state by reforming the criminal justice system, better caring for victims of crime, and making prevention programs more effective. Senator John C. Rafferty, Jr. represents the residents of Pennsylvania’s 44th Senatorial District which includes parts of Berks, Chester, and Montgomery Counties. He was re-elected for a fourth term in the Senate in November of 2014.  A former Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General, the Montgomery County native has an extensive background in public service at the state and local levels. Senator Rafferty currently serves as the Chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, the Vice Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and is a member of the Appropriations, Consumer Protection, and Professional Licensure and Law and Justice Committees.
