The Mitt Romney for President Campaign is coming to Mesquite.
“After a whirl-wind week of planning, Mesquite Republicans are excited to announce the grand opening of Team Nevada Headquarters for this area,” said Kathy Williams, campaign spokesman.
Called a “Victory Office,” the Mesquite headquarters will be located in the Brickyard Plaza, 355 W. Mesquite Blvd., unit C-80, next to the Remax Real Estate Office. The celebration is scheduled Saturday, Aug. 11, from 7 a.m. until noon. Early visitors will be greeted with coffee and donuts. After 9 a.m. special guests and candidates will arrive to meet and greet visitors. Along with the guests, local disc jockey Larry Agan will set up in the parking lot to entertain and play patriotic music. There will be a silent auction, as well as a 50-50 raffle, hot dogs, hamburgers, soda and water.
“All Victory Offices, located strategically throughout the United States, serve as centers for campaign volunteer activities to support those running for local, state and federal offices in the November 6 general election,” Williams explained. “The Mesquite Victory Office will be open daily, 9 a.m.-8 p.m., to provide grass-root volunteer efforts, information on upcoming events, voter registration and absentee ballots, early voting information, and voting locations.”
In addition, candidate pamphlets, literature and yard signs are to be available at the office.
“Citizens who are committed to doing something about promoting the founding ideals that made our country great are encouraged to volunteer at the new headquarters,” Williams added. “Someone once said, ‘The only way to get back on track, is to change the conductor.’ With Nevada being above the national average in unemployment and high home foreclosures, it's time to get on another train.”
Williams invited the public to attend Saturday’s grand opening of Mesquite’s Victory Office. For additional information, contact her at (315) 796-1387, or Mesquite Victory Office manager Blake Garfield at (702) 245-4126.
