Event takes place in Harrisburg on April 10
HARRISBURG (Jan. 29, 2018) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Pennsylvania announced that political analyst and columnist Salena Zito is the featured dinner speaker at its Small Business Dinner on Tuesday, April 10 at the Hilton in Harrisburg, PA.
Salena Zito is a Pittsburgh based national political reporter for the Washington Examiner, an enterprise columnist for the New York Post, host of SIRIUS XM POTUS show Main Street meets the Beltway, and the author of the upcoming book; The Great Revolt; Inside the populist coalition shaping American politics.
Zito has traveled over 400,000 miles across the county in her career, using only back roads, avoiding planes and interstates, to be able to detect and understand cultural and economic changes in the country.
In 2016 she interviewed all 22 candidates on both sides of the aisle running for their party’s nomination for president including Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. In May of 2017, she interviewed President Donald Trump in the White House.
She began detecting the disconnect developing in the country beginning in 2005 and had her pulse on the wave election cycles of 2006, 2010, 2014 and wrote in July of 2016 that Trump was likely going to win the presidency after returning from a road trip back and forth across the country which included the Great Lakes Midwest states of Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Zito is the mother of two adult children Shannon and Glenn, and the proud grandmother of Eleanora. She is an avid trail cyclist, hiker, history nerd and pathetic fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates and never missed Sunday dinner with her family.
The day-and-a-half Small Business Day at the State Capitol event, kicks off April 10, with a reception and the dinner. On Wednesday, April 11, business owners head to the state Capitol to meet with state officials, legislative leaders, and their own elected officials to discuss policies and mandates that affect small-business growth and hiring. The governor’s proposal to raise the overtime salary threshold, bills to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr. and calls for higher taxes to fund more government spending, are among the concerns employers will raise during meetings with their elected representatives.
