Vice President Mike Pence will visit a Manchester Township business Saturday, Nov. 4, for an invite-only policy meeting, according to the chairman of the York County Republican Committee.

Alex Shorb said Pence will be visiting Military and Commercial Fasteners Corp., 11 Grumbacher Road, with doors opening to invited guests at 10 a.m. and closing at 11 a.m.

Shorb emphasized that Pence's visit is a policy meeting to discuss President Donald Trump's proposed tax reform plan and not a campaign rally.

Pence's meeting may be short on elected officials, as spokespeople for U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pennsylvania, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and state Sen. Scott Wagner, R-Spring Garden Township, all said they would not be attending due to prior commitments.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pennsylvania, wrote in an email that their office had not received an invitation to attend.

State Rep. Keith Gillespie, R-Hellam Township, represents the district Pence is visiting, and he said he's planning on attending.

Pence has visited York County for a campaign rally before, as the former Indiana governor stumped for Trump last year at Wagner's Penn Waste facility in Manchester Township.

According to the Military and Commercial Fasteners Corp. website, it has been around since 1972, serving clients in the aerospace, defense and commercial manufacturing markets. The corporation also has locations in Georgia and Indiana.
