Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Frank's 44th, Wish him a Happy Birthday

 

From Frank's Desk

Good morning,

Today is Frank's 44th birthday, and we want to wish him a happy birthday with a gift that will help push Team Guinta over the top this November.

As you know, we are in a dead heat with Carol Shea-Porter. Between her trips to California wine country with Nancy Pelosi and the special interest PAC and lobbyist dollars that will flow into this district, they will come to play in a big way this fall.

With that in mind, please contribute $44 on Frank's 44th birthday to ensure we have the resources to win this fall and return this district to your hands!

Your gift will go a long way in helping defeat Carol Shea-Porter, and keeping Nancy Pelosi away from the Speaker's gavel.

Thank you for all you continue to do,

Jay Ruais
Campaign Manager
Frank Guinta for Congress

Heads Up - School Choice Celebration at Belknap Mill on Feb. 1

Network For Educational Opportunity To Hold School Choice Celebration & Free Children’s Concert at Belknap Mill

The Network for Educational Opportunity (NEO) announced today its inaugural School Choice Celebration to be held during National School Choice Week. NEO’s celebration will take place at the Belknap Mill, 25 Beacon Street East in Laconia, NH on Saturday, February 1st beginning at 12:30 p.m.  NEO staff are holding this first-ever event to kick off their second year of K-12 scholarship operations, and to celebrate the awarding of more than $125,000 in education tax credit scholarships for the 2013-2014 school year.

 

Free and open to the public, the NEO School Choice Celebration will feature interactive musical experience “Wayne from Maine” and balloon-meister White Marriot.  The celebration will also highlight the need to expand access to educational options for all children.

 

Organizers expect close to 250 people to attend the event: children, parents, community leaders, and other education choice stakeholders.  NEO staff will make a presentation on scholarships and school choice at 12:30 p.m. and will repeat this presentation following the concert.  NEO’s close-knit community – as well as new families seeking information – are strongly encouraged to attend for scholarship access updates, including information on how to apply.

 

Under the NH Education Tax Credit law passed in 2012, families may be eligible for financial need-based scholarships from NEO to pay tuition for education options. This has created a flurry of interest from families in need and levels the playing field, giving children whose parents are of modest means the opportunity to attend a school they would otherwise be unable to afford. The need-based scholarships empower families to choose an educational setting that is the best fit for their child.  Options NEO can assist with run the gamut of public schools outside a student’s zoned district, first-time or continued attendance at specialized private schools, as well as financial support for home schooling materials and experiences.

 

“All of us at NEO are thrilled to have the opportunity to empower NH families to overcome barriers to choosing a school or educational setting that is the best fit for their child. We’re proud to have awarded scholarships to more than 100 children in 2013 and we look forward to celebrating school choice with parents and the community,” said NEO Executive Director Kate Baker.

By participating in National School Choice Week 2014, which runs January 26th to February 1st, NEO joins hundreds of organizations, thousands of groups, and millions of Americans in raising awareness concerning the need to empower parents with the ability to choose the best educational environments for their children.

YRNF Statement on Black History Month


Chelsi PChelsi Henry at YRNF Convention Henry, the YRNF Outreach Chair, issued the following statement on Black History Month:

Often times, Black History Month is overlooked or dismissed for a variety of reasons. Some say that it promotes racial divides, and others point out the fact that it is the shortest month of the year. Though both of these points and many others can be argued, the truth is that these arguments are mere distractions from the significance of the month. 

Black History Month is shared with Valentine’s Day. symbolic maybe? I would argue YES! If the Republican Party is going to lead and solve today’s issues, many that affect the African-American communities in the United States, there must be love and compassion through our actions and policies. 

This is a month that we as Republicans are reminded of our commitment and history of boldly supporting and standing up for freedom and progress. The GOP has a longstanding commitment to these principles. Our Republican Party should continue to rededicate ourselves to expanding the party. We are the party that believes in the advancement of all, no matter your current social economic status, family background, and education level, etc. We embrace American exceptionalism and should be bold in our message to all.

Celebrate with young Americans across the nation- retweet the facts we share, be bold and sharing why you are a Republican with others and how our principles promote the American dream. Reach out beyond your circle and share our conservative vision with your community. 

If you have ideas on how we can continue to share the Republican message, please email me or call me. I am dedicated to improving outreach to young Americans.
