NH House Business Coalition, Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce Sponsor Business Roundtable Event

CONCORD—The New Hampshire House Business Coalition will host businessman Steve Forbes to speak on behalf of Presidential candidate Governor Rick Perry for the fourth in a series of Business Roundtable events with the candidates on Thursday, December 29, 2011.

The NH House Business Coalition is a non-partisan caucus focused on the promotion of private sector job creation and expansion of the economy.  "The goal of the Roundtable Series is for employers to learn more about the candidates’ specific ideas for improving the business climate and economy in America. The NH House Business Coalition strives to continually maintain a dialogue between the legislature and employers so we can pass good legislation that promotes private sector job creation and expansion of the economy. It’s important to know how these Presidential candidates plan to address these issues,” said NH Business Coalition Chair, Rep. Laurie Sanborn.  "Regardless of party and where you are leaning, I think you'll find the remarks of Steve Forbes interesting and worth listening to."

The roundtable will take place at the Kimball Jenkins Estate, located at 266 North Main Street in Concord, and is co-sponsored by the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce and Ian’s Wicked Good Donuts.  Registration and coffee begins at 8:00am, and the program will be from 8:30–9:15am. The event is free but RSVPs are required.

Business Roundtable events were held earlier this year with presidential candidates Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, and Rick Santorum.  The NH House Business Coalition is hoping to schedule forums with the other presidential candidates, and is planning to host a similar Business Roundtable series with the gubernatorial candidates in 2012.
