SaddleBrooke Republican Club May 2018 General Meeting

by Patricia Tarner

Candidates – candidates – candidates!!  Nineteen eager, energetic Republican candidates running for office on the August primary ballot flooded the Mountain View Ballroom for the SaddleBrooke Republican Club May General Meeting.

Seated at tables throughout the ballroom were members of the SaddleBrooke Republican Club just waiting to meet and greet the nineteen candidates .  The candidates rotated from table to table in 8 minute increments.  The minutes were jam packed with probing questions from the SBRC members to which the candidates responded with knowledgeable answers and an energy that was contagious.  The electricity in the room was palpable.  Smiles – handshakes – and laughter filled the air! 

The ‘Meet and Greet ’ formula is a popular way for club members to get to know the candidates on a personal level and an opportunity for the candidates to share their views in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
