The Mesquite Republican Women and the Friends of the Founding Fathers proudly announce that GOP candidates running for national, state and local election are coming to Mesquite today at the First Baptist Church, 700 Hardy Way, starting at 5:00 p.m. with a meet and greet. The program will start at 6:00 p.m. Everyone who wants to be informed before voting should attend, as this will give an insight to those that help govern our nation, state and county.

The candidates to attend are those running for contested offices in the June election. The winners in June will face off against the Democratic primary winners in November. Most voters in the area don’t have a chance to meet or even talk to the candidates before voting. So here is a chance for local residents to meet and even talk to the candidates. Other than ads, most voters have little information about the people running for office. Each candidate will address the group and pass out their campaign information and then be available for individual questions.
