Elected Officials Reception

The biennial Elected Officials Reception was held at the Ed Oliver Golf Course Clubhouse in Wilmington and provided an opportunity for the public to "meet and greet" with state, county, and municipal officials. Author John Riley also held a book signing for How He Played the Game, his award-winning biography of Ed "Porky" Oliver. The event was hosted by DelCOG, the Delaware Press Association, the League of Women Voters of Delaware, and the League of Women Voters of New Castle County.
