Smith is only gubernatorial candidate to schedule traditional town hall meetings

MANCHESTER – Today, Kevin Smith, Republican candidate for governor of New Hampshire, announced an aggressive statewide schedule of town hall meetings covering all ten counties in New Hampshire. Smith is the first candidate to plan town hall meetings. 

“I’m running a campaign based on substance and specific ideas for making New Hampshire a better to live and do business. As part of this effort, I want to provide voters with an opportunity to engage me on the issues, and also give me the chance to hear directly from them about their ideas for making our state stronger.” Smith added, “This is part of a vigorous, grassroots campaign that I’m running, which is exactly what voters expect and want to see from their candidates.”

Smith’s campaign has scheduled fourteen town hall meetings in the months of May and June, with more to be added soon. The tour will take him to all ten counties in the state and include stops in Berlin, Bow, Colebrook, Conway, Dover, Hampton, Hudson, Keene, Kingston, Laconia, Littleton, Merrimack, Newport, and Plymouth. Smith is the only candidate for governor thus far to commit to holding traditional town hall meetings where voters are invited to ask questions and hear answers from the candidate.

Smith said he would use the town hall meetings as an opportunity to promote his “New Hampshire’s Future Is Now” plan for rebuilding the state’s economy and generating new jobs. The meetings will resemble the style and format usually seen in presidential campaigns throughout New Hampshire, and will be open to the press.

Smith remains the only candidate for governor to propose a specific plan to improve New Hampshire’s economic climate, create real and sustainable job growth, and to make state government more efficient and effective, reducing its costs on businesses and taxpayers.
