CHANGES IN CONCORD: A POLITICAL BREAKFAST FORUM
For the first time in nearly two decades, one political party will be controlling all four major branches of New Hampshire government -- the Governorship, the Executive Council, the State Senate and the State House of Representatives. While this may be good or bad depending on your personal political perspective, at least it means there will be much less gridlock. Many changes will be taking place.
The Atkinson-Plaistow and Hampstead-Kingston Town Republican Committees will be jointly hosting a breakfast and political forum on Saturday, December 3, starting at 8:30 a.m. to be held at the Atkinson Country Club. The theme will be "Changes in Concord."
Speaking at the breakfast will be three political leaders who "moved up" at the last election: Chris Sununu, moving from Executive Councilor to Governor; Russell Prescott, moving from State Senator to Executive Councilor, and Mark Pearson, moving from a long-time political observer to State Representative. Each will make a ten minute presentation and then form a panel to field questions from the floor. Each speaker brings his own perspective and experience to his new job and each has indicated his keen desire to hear from you, his constituents.
State Senator and Senate President Chuck Morse will also participate. He's a prominent local official who did not "move up" in the last election but was instead re-elected to the same position. Morse brings perspective of continuity in these two positions, important because one-third of the State Senators and nearly 40% of the State Representatives and Executive Councilors will be newcomers to their respective offices.
Tickets are $30.
Tickets may be obtained at the door, but because it is vital we know how many will be coming (so the right number of chairs can be set up and meals prepared) it is necessary to call in reservations by Wednesday, November 30 to the office of Steve Lewis at (603) 362-6565.
