Gilmore speaks at Lincoln Day Dinner
This year’s Lincoln Day Dinner will be Feb. 10 at the Carson Valley Inn, Minden, Nev. The social, with no-host bar, will begin at 6 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7 p.m.
The cost is $35 per person. Reservations may be made by by contacting Wes Rice, chairman of the Douglas County Republican Central Committee, at (775) 588-7770; Byron Waite at (775) 782-5838; or Brenda Robertson at (775) 267-2403.
Guest speaker will be James S. Gilmore III, Virginia’s 58th governor, who was elected on a philosophy of cutting taxes and providing all children in Virginia with quality education. His wife, Roxane, also very involved in education, will be a guest.
Gov. Gilmore provided steady, conservative leadership that resulted in the largest tax cut in Virginia history, implementation of Virginia’s nationally acclaimed Standards of Learning, and a safer, more prosperous Commonwealth, leading to the creation of more than 300,000 new jobs.
Gilmore currently chairs the Congressional Advisory Panel to Assess Domestic Response Capabilities for Terrorism Involving Weapons of Mass Destruction, a national panel assessing federal, state and local governments’ capability to respond to the consequences of a terrorist attack, and is submitting its finding to the President and Congress.
The silent auction will have special items from the Ronald Reagan Foundation.
