BELMONT — The next meeting of the Belknap County Republican Committee will be held on Wednesday, October 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Top of the Town Restaurant in Belmont.
Although it was originally announced that Karen Testerman, potential candidate for US Senate, would be the guest speaker, she will be unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict. However, in light of the current government shutdown, there's a lot for the committee to be discussing about the budget stalemate, the debt ceiling, and Obamacare at the next meeting. Common Core would be discussed, as it's impacting local schools. Lastly, with additional people stepping forward to consider running for office, the committee will provide updates regarding those individuals and plans for future Belknap County GOP events.
Belknap County GOP meetings are open to all Republicans and like-minded independents. Those interested in having dinner or wish to socialize before the meeting should plan to arrive as early as 5 p.m. Attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the meeting for distribution to local food pantries.
