WASHINGTON Peace Corps Director and former Orange County Supervisor Gaddi Vasquez and his wife, Elaine, received two of the 130 hottest invitations in town Monday. The couple were on the guest list for the White House state dinner honoring Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. This is the third state dinner for the Bush administration. The other two were for Mexican President Vicente Fox and Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski. This the first state dinner Vasquez has attended.
