"And that speaks well for each of these leaders and our city as a whole."
 
Wildes pointed out that the Co-Chairs of the Clinton reception represent "diverse backgrounds and the wide spectrum of constituencies that together make Englewood both unique and strong." 
 
"I am proud to call these Co-Chairs friends and fellow public servants," said Wildes. The Hillary Clinton reception Co-Chairs include: Reverend Lester Taylor, Rabbi Meacham Genack, Reverend John Spencer, Rabbi Shmuel Goldin, Reverend William Marcus Small, Rabbi Joseph Strassfeld, Reverend Bruce Flynn, Rabbi Mark N. Wildes (Councilman Wildes' brother), Reverend Vernon Walton and Rabbi Zvi Engle.
