BELMONT — Republican gubernatorial candidate Walt Havenstein will address the next monthly meeting of the Belknap County Republican Committee scheduled for Wednesday, July 9, at 6:30 p.m. at the Top of the Town Restaurant, 88 Ladd Hill Road, in Belmont.
Now that signup for elective office is complete, the committee will focus even greater attention on the Republican candidates who are vying for the Party's nomination in the Sept. 9 Primary.
Havenstein is facing a Primary challenge from Andrew Hemingway. The July 9 meeting provides an opportunity for people to hear Havenstein share his reasons for running for governor, and his plans for New Hampshire if he's elected. Those attending will also have the opportunity to ask Havenstein questions about his position on various issues.
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, should plan to arrive as early as 5 p.m.
The Committee once again reminds everyone planning to attend to bring a non-perishable food item to the meeting for distribution to local food pantries.
