Family Fun Day A Success At Funspot
Belknap County Conservative Republicans. In the photo, Senator Sam
Greg Moore, Americans for Prosperity - NH, and Donald Kleeberg are present.
On Saturday, May 18, Belknap County Conservative Republicans held an
“introductory” event at Funspot at the Weirs in Laconia. “This event
was to introduce our organization to the Laconia community. We are
new and we wanted folks to have an opportunity to come out and get
to know us,” says Don Walker, Founder of Belknap County Conservative
Republicans. The rally had around 150 people in attendance
throughout the day. “We enjoyed some hotdogs and apple pie and were
particularly pleased to see so many young, conservative families
join us. It was terrific to engage in dialogue centered on small
government solutions to the many problems facing our state and
country,” says Rep. Jane Cormier, Belknap District 8. “We hope this
will be the first of many such events,” says Walker.
Belknap County Conservative Republicans embrace the NH Republican
Platform and are working for conservatism to have a larger voice in
local, county, and state government. Their mission is to act as a
vehicle to bring more conservative-minded supporters into the
Republican party and through a grassroots effort, promote small
government and personal liberty causes at each level of government.
Don Walker and Rep. Jane Cormier are available to
speak about Belknap County Conservative Republicans and their
mission. For more information visit:
