New Hampshire Director Of  Americans For Prosperity To Address Belknap County Republicans


The Belknap County Republican Committee is holding their next monthly meeting on Wednesday, February 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the Laconia VFW, 143 Court St, Laconia, NH.


The Committee is pleased to announce that Greg Moore, New Hampshire Director of Americans for Prosperity, a 501(c)(4) organization, will address the Committee.  Mr. Moore will share a brief history of AFP, and talk about AFP’s goals of advocating for low taxes and limiting the growth of government.


In addition to hearing from Mr. Moore, the Committee will hear about plans and sub-committees that will be organized to focus attention on winning the elections in 2020 to gain back a Republican majority in the NH House, Senate, and Executive Council, and to re-elect Governor Chris Sununu.


Members of the Committee are asked to bring a friend (or two!) to this month’s meeting as the Committee is intent on increasing their membership with people from all age groups but in particular young Republicans from 18-40 years of age. 


Belknap County GOP meetings are open to ALL Republicans and like-minded Independents. The Committee suggests that you arrive as early as 5:30 pm to socialize with other members.


As has become a monthly tradition, the Committee encourages its members to continue to bring non-perishable food items for donation to local food pantries.


For more information about the Committee, please check the Committee’s website at or send an email to [email protected].
