The hunkely handsome Ray Bingham the CEO of Cadence Design Systems (on the right) hosted a California style breakfast powwow at Buck’s for The Honorable, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge (center), Sam McCullough Secretary of Economic Development) several staff members and some big time muscle to keep our employees from playing the tubas. It seems that the Governor had stolen a Pennsylvania license plate for Ray to add to his collection.

Sure, and after that they did some real work. That of investigating potential investment opportunities for the Great State of Pennsylvania. Since Buck’s is a favorite hang out for VC’s and Silicon Valley CEO’s…it was a logical place for the meeting.

In the early 70’s I traveled all over Pennsylvania selling cow milking machines. I’ll bet you didn’t know that about me.

Tom, I’m waiting for my BUCK’S license plate. You know where to find me.
