The Mongiello Family
Camp David is a wonderful American treasure and relaxation spot. While Mr. Mongiello was the Executive Chef and Asst. Manager of Lodging there a number of improvements were made while historic events occurred. It is a well know fact, in the public domain, that there are a number of cabins there - all of which require interior design, maintenance, cleaning crews, guest service and great meals. Regardless of which party is in office - America relies on the representation of our country to be top notch. There is no room for poor attitude along any form of party lines, rhetoric or comments. Those whom partake in such behavior would be quickly discharged.

Not much is said out of respect for his work ethic, honor in his trade, security considerations, a deep respect (and admiration) for President and Senator Clinton, the first family, public personalities and guests.
