The Dover Republican Town Committee had a very successful Holiday Party on Dec. 13. Individuals from across the Dover community (not just registered Republicans) gathered at a local home to reflect on a busy year in politics and to look ahead to an ever busier coming 12 months.

The entertainment included a Christmas sing-along with some hearty singing fueled by fine beverage and tasty bites to eat.

The party marked the end of a highly successful relaunch period for the DRTC. With both gubernatorial and senatorial races in 2018, the DRTC is planning to use the next few months to help Dover voters develop a deeper understanding of the GOP positions on a wide range of issues. Opportunities for citizens to meet candidates and ask them questions directly will also be a priority in DRTC programming.

The chairman of the Dover Town Republican Committee, Grant Stephen, said, “The party was a wonderful and informal event for members to close off the year, share some fellowship and sing some seasonal standards. It was particularly gratifying to see Doverites attend who are not registered members of the GOP. This is very much what the DRTC is about: creating a forum for local folk who share traditional Republican values, regardless of whether they are registered with one particular party.”
