(Shawn Meehan) – February 18, 2014 – Sunday evening, Feb. 16th, the Douglas County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC) held their annual Lincoln-Reagan Dinner. This year’s theme was Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of Nevada’s admission to the Union. The event–with the largest attendance in many years–was a sellout. The Carson Valley Inn swiftly accommodated our surge of walk-ins, key to the success of the evening.
Senator Dean Heller, Congressman Mark Amodei, and Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald, entertained the crowd with a lighthearted review of Republican successes. They also highlighted the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in 2014. All received enthusiastic responses from the crowd. Several other elected officials and candidates from across Nevada attended to pull Republicans together for the 2014 election.
Douglas County’s own, Lieutenant Governor Brian K. Krolicki, shared fond memories of his years of service to Nevadans. He informed guests that his work isn’t over as Nevadans continue to celebrate our Sesquicentennial through Nevada Day 2014. Lt. Gov. Krolicki excited the room when he shared that Nevada’s application to host the Republican National Convention in Las Vegas in 2016 appears to have a very good chance of success. This will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase The Silver State to the rest of the nation.
DCRCC Chairman Marco Caldana had a big smile as he commented, “The event was a sellout — a huge success! Our event committee, the Carson Valley Inn, our elected leaders, and enthusiastic attendees made this evening a rousing success.” He continued, “tonight’s success, and that of our sister county’s dinners prove that Nevadans are getting engaged to represent and protect their Conservative values.”
Next up for the DCRCC is a county convention on March 8th where party principles are debated and defined and delegates selected for the Nevada Republican Convention. Further information is available at: www.douglasgop.org
