CONCORD – The House Majority Office announced this week its plans to hold an open house for people interested in running for and serving in the state legislature. The event, which is to be held April 7th, will be open to any Republican who would like to learn more about the day-to-day responsibilities of a state representative, the history and traditions of the New Hampshire House, and will include tours and brief presentations from House and Party leadership.
In 2014, nearly 100 candidates and activists descended on Concord for a similar event.
“We’re really looking forward to introducing prospective candidates to the state house and the legislative process again this year,” said House Majority Leader Dick Hinch, “As a citizen legislature, we rely on people who are passionate about serving their communities to step forward to run, and we want to make sure they have all of the information they need in order to move forward as candidates.”
The filing period for candidates is June 1 through June 10.
Current House members and Republican Party activists are encouraged to forward event information to members of their community who have expressed interest in serving in the legislature.
The tentative schedule of events for April 7th will begin with coffee and registration period beginning at 8:30 a.m., followed by brief remarks from House Republican leadership team, and Republican Party officials. Attendees will be assigned a mentor who will guide small groups to observe committee hearings/meetings. An official State House tour will follow, before a complimentary lunch. After lunch more informational sessions will be held along with a Q&A session.
