Belknap County Republican Committee Monthly Meeting with former Cong. Frank Guinta

BELMONT — The next monthly meeting of the Belknap County Republican Committee will be held on Wednesday, February 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 Cong. Frank Guinta of Manchester. Cong. Guinta has decided to challenge current Cong. Carol Shea-Porter in an effort to win his seat back and return to Washington, DC. However, to do so will require Cong. Guinta to first win the Republican primary vs. former Dean of the UNH Business School Dan Innis. Cong. Guinta will share his thoughts about the current environment in Washington, and his plans for the future if the voters return him to our nation's capitol.

In addition, Sen. Joe Kenney, the Republican candidate for the District 1 Executive Council seat of the late Ray Burton, will be attending. For anyone who hasn't met Joe yet, this will be your last opportunity to hear from him at a Belknap County GOP meeting prior to the March 11 Special Election.

Also, introducing himself to the Committee will be the current Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire, Aaron Day.

Belknap County GOP meetings are open to all Republicans and like-minded independents. Per their usual meeting format, those interested in having dinner or who 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 onset of very cold and snowy weather and increases in propane and oil prices, it's straining the financial resources of those who are less fortunate. The committee asks each attendee to please remember to bring non-perishable food items to the meeting for distribution to local food pantries.
