Thankful Tuesday – Message from Chairman Claude Pope, NC Republican Party
Tuesday July 16th, Republicans and supporters will gather at the North Carolina General Assembly to meet, network, socialize and hear from our Republican members and leaders. We will be meeting behind the Legislative Building on Halifax Mall (across from the main entrance to the Legislature Building). The theme of the event will be to thank our legislators for their efforts on so many major policy changes that were desperately needed in our state after decades of failed Democrat control.
Come join us to “Thank Our Legislators” for a job well done. It is important for our representatives to hear from us. See you on “Thankful Tuesday” this Tuesday July 16th at 5pm, at 16 West Jones Street in Raleigh!
Claude E. Pope Jr.
North Carolina Republican Party
