Trump campaign adviser to speak in county

Robert A. Paduchik

A major player in President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is making a stop in Chautauqua County early next month.

Chautauqua County Conservative Party Chairwoman Anna Wilcox has announced that Robert A. Paduchik has agreed to be the keynote speaker at the 2019 Conservative Party Dinner. Paduchik was recently named to serve the 2020 Trump campaign as a senior adviser and as the Ohio State chairman for the campaign.

“We are extremely pleased and honored to have Mr. Paduchik agree to come and speak to us,” Wilcox said. “He brings a wealth of experience to the table and his close relationship with President Trump makes him one of the most interesting speakers that we have had at one of our dinners.”

Paduchik is an accomplished strategist with three decades of experience working political campaigns in the battleground state of Ohio. He was elected co-chair of the Republican National Committee in January 2017 and left that position recently to join Trump’s re-election campaign.

“Bob was a tremendous asset to my 2016 campaign and his leadership in the 2020 cycle will help us win again,” Trump said in making the announcement. “Bob is a total winner.”

His involvement in Ohio led to running winning campaigns in that state for Donald J. Trump in 2016 and George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004. Paduchik is recognized by many political professionals as one of the “outstanding campaign managers in America” and an expert in campaign tactics.

Wilcox is inviting anyone who would be interested in hearing Paduchik speak to contact her or committee member Rick Slagle as soon as possible. Their telephone numbers are 785-0010 or 672-8595 for Wilcox and 483-5422 or 664-1362 for Slagle.

The dinner, which is open to the public, will be at the Chautauqua Harbor Hotel in Celoron on Thursday, June 6. The cost of the dinner is $60 per person. Those wishing to attend are asked to get their reservations in by Thursday.
