From 2016-17 WMCA President Chris Astrella WCPC

Chris Astrella, President

Happy after the Election! Election Day is one of my favorite days of the year, but it’s nice not seeing any political ads or getting phone calls from candidates asking me to vote for them. Finally we can focus on completing this election (and getting ready for the next one!). I want to congratulate all of you on a job well done. All the hard work and training we went through paid off because I heard virtually no complaints from voters, friends of mine and from the media.

Speaking of the media, I was interviewed by a few outlets and was impressed with the cooperation and credibility they granted me during my times chatting with them. Additionally, I found out some of you were representing us (by being interviewed) through either TV, print or radio and you did an amazing job. It truly was an experience I will never forget, being the association’s President in a Presidential Election Year, but I’m happy it’s over and we can get on with the rest of our lives.    read more>
