Recently retired 6 term US congressman Todd Platts visited the York East Rotary meeting on Tuesday, January 22nd. Todd explained the reason he retired was due to him submitting bills to limit congressional terms to 12 years. This is the length of time he served in the US House of Representatives. Todd also spoke of his time in congress. He mentioned supporting troops in "Harms Way" and backed that up with several trips visiting the troops in Afghanistan and other world hot spots.
He also mentioned that he never accepted corporate campaign fund raising dollars. All of the money that came into his campaign was donated from individuals. He was one of the last in congress to do so. The US Supreme Court ruling on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S. 310 (2010) no longer restricts independent political expenditures by corporations and unions. Pictured here is Todd Platts and York East Rotary President Joe Hackett. .
We wish Todd the best in his future endeavors!

We raised $3,000 for the Northeastern Food Pantry and purchased the same in gift cards from the Manchester Giant. The food pantry can then purchase fresh supplies as needed using the gift cards. The food pantry has served over 500 families in the first 6 months of this year and 75 of those are new families.
