BELMONT — The next monthly meeting of the Belknap County Republican Committee will be held on Wednesday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the Top of the Town Restaurant, 88 Ladd Hill Rd. in Belmont.
This month's guest speaker is former State Senator Jim Rubens, who announced last September that he would be challenging current U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen in the November 2014 election. However, to do so, Jim will have to prevail in a primary against a number of other Republican U.S. Senate candidates. Rubens will share his reasons for choosing to run, discuss where he stands on the issues, and explain why he feels he's the candidate who can best represent New Hampshire in Washington, D.C.
Belknap County GOP meetings are open to all Republicans and like-minded independents. Per their usual meeting format, those interested in having dinner (at your option) and/or wish to socialize before the meeting, plan to arrive as early as 5 p.m.
The committee is stepping up its request for food pantry donations. With the winter cold continuing to be a burden for many, the committee once again reminds everyone planning to attend to bring non-perishable food items to the meeting for distribution to local food pantries.
