New Hampshire Citizens for the Arts Announces First of Several Events in Advance of 2015 Legislative Session

Concord, NH- New Hampshire Citizens for the Arts (NHCFA) will hold the first in a series of events to advocate in support of New Hampshire artists and the arts on
September 3, 2014. This first event will be a house party for New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan at the home of Paul and Peggo Hodes 70 Fisk Road in Concord from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. 

“Rather than wait until a new legislative session begins, the NHCFA is mobilizing support and engaging with candidates now in order to promote constructive dialogue that will lead to positive legislation.” Explained Nicki Clarke, NHCFA Co- President and Executive Director of the Capitol Center for the Arts. “In May we brought the arts to the State House to publically thank our citizen legislators. We appreciate the work they do and acknowledge the fact that they must make tough decisions for our state.” 

“Leading up to the 2012 elections we held house parties for both Democrat and Republican candidates. We intend to replicate that heading into 2015.” Added Jamie Saucier, NHCFA Co-President and Student Activities Coordinator, UNH Manchester. “The events we hold for candidates are unique in that donations made go directly to the candidate not to our organization. It is a way for our members and supporters to show their support and invest in our state’s future.” NHCFA will be announcing additional campaign and advocacy events over the next few months.
