The Boston Republican City Committee will host candidates for the Republican State Committee whose districts are either wholly or partially in Boston at the Park Street School, located at 67 Brimmer St. in Beacon Hill, on Tuesday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m.

Each candidate for State Committee will have several minutes to introduce his or herself and answer questions.  Republican Ward members from across the city will be in attendance and this event is open to the public.

Committee chair Brad Williams said, “This election is very exciting as we have three contested races and will have several new State Committee members representing Boston. Ever since U.S. Senator Scott Brown won the special election and took over 30 percent of the vote in Boston, I have seen renewed interest from grassroots activists across Boston who want to help me build a viable two-party political system in Boston.”

The Republican State Committee is the governing body of the Massachusetts

Republican Party and consists of one man and one woman from each of the 40

Senate districts. State Committee members serve a term of four years and will be elected during the Presidential Primary on March 6.  State Committee members act as the liaison between the state party and local town or city committees. In Boston, these elected individuals are responsible for building ward committee membership and recruiting local candidates.

The current officers of the Boston Republican Committee are: Chair – Brad

Williams (Ward 20), Vice Chair – Kaitlyn Greeley (Ward 3), Secretary – Erin

Maloney (Ward 2) and Treasurer – Brad Marston (Ward 5).  They were elected

in a special election held on March 31.

    This was a great forum.  Brad William, Kaitlyn Greeley and the entire board did it up well.  There were a lot of great candidates there, and regardless of who wins, it is apparent that change and new ideas are  coming to the Mass GOP.
