It's quiet here this week, after a full schedule last week! On Wednesday, the Republican Women showed up in force to assemble a mailing for Tax Review Commr. Dan Patlak. Thursday night, we had a good turnout for the Lincoln Day Dinner with Gov. Christie. (A big thank-you to those who worked so hard to make it an outstanding event for us.)
And then Saturday we hosted the local election candidates who are members of our organization, along with a strong turnout to hear and question them; congratulations to John Oesterheld on winning the on-time attendance award for February. We're now working on lining up a program for our March 14 meeting ... more on that in weeks to come.
