Success!

Last nights meeting went off without a hitch. We had a great group of republicans from all over Western Mass. We had people from as far away as Lee and Greenfield. Almost all towns in Hampden county were represented.



Isaac Mass, Jeanne Boynton, and John Lysak



State Committee members Isaac Mass and Jeanne Boynton were in attendance. After they spoke we had Chicopee Ward 1 School Committee member Adam LaMontagne speak about growing the party. Then we heard from Mike Franco, Vice Chair of Western Mass Republicans. Mr. Franco spoke about Eastlongmeadow's upcoming elections, where Republican Candidate Ron Cutler will be Challenging Republican incumbent Jack Villamaino.

We had the privilege to hear from Keith McCormic candidate for State Senate, against the infamous Sen. Stanley Rosenburg. If you are interested in helping Keith go to his website: www.keithmccormic.com/
After all the speakers were finished we had a lively discussion about different ways to help out local candidates and about fundraising for the group. All in all, it was a great night, and I am very happy not only with the turn out but the enthusiasm shown by people in attendance.
I am looking forward to next months meeting on March 31st at the Greenleaf Center in Springfield, MA.

I'd also like to announce that at the event, lysak made some excellent brownies. I look forward to seeing them again at next month's meeting.

The meeting was very informative and liked the points brought up about the social events not only business meetings. The group should get to know one another other then just at the monthly meetings.
