REPUBLICAN WOMEN PLAN THEIR MARCH TO NOVEMBER

SPEAKER SYTEK, MAYOR LOZEAU AND VESTA ROY FELLOWS TO BE HONORED

Concord, NH – March 4, 2010 – The Vesta Roy Series for Excellence in Public Service will host a reception this month honoring two New Hampshire Republican women who excel in the public service arena and several others who are making plans to follow their lead.   The event will be held on Thursday, March 18, 2010 from 5:00 pm until 6:30 pm at The Draft Restaurant, 67 South Main Street in Concord.  

Former NH Speaker of the House, Donna Sytek, is the top honoree, with a keynote address to be delivered by Nashua Mayor Donnalee Lozeau.  The event is aptly named the “March to November” and is intended as a launch for the State Representative campaigns of several current and former fellows of the Vesta Roy program. 

 “We are thrilled to host this event highlighting the success of these accomplished and well respected Republican women,” said Pam Kocher, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Vesta Roy program.   “Our party is on the rise here in New Hampshire and we look forward to supporting all of our candidates in their campaigns this fall,” Kocher added. 

The Vesta Roy Series is a political leadership training program for Republican women who have an interest in politics and public service but have not yet held state elective office.  The program provides a series of informational and skills-building sessions to give participants tools and training to build their confidence and turn interest into activism.

Among the fellows named as “Rising Stars” and who plan a run for the House this year are Sue Polidura, Portsmouth; Anne Copp, Danbury; Regina Birdsell, Hampstead; Laura Jones, Rochester and Joanne Ward, Stratham.  

The event is sponsored by the Sykas Law Office of Dover and the New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women.  Admission to the event is $10 per person and confirmation of attendance is requested by contacting Leann Moccia by email at leannmoccia@myfairpoint.net.  For additional information about the Vesta Roy Series, visit the program’s website at www.vestaroyseries.com .
