Two upcoming events for Republicans

Two important events for Nevada County Republicans will be held this week. The Republican Central Committee has a regular meeting on Wednesday and its annual Republican Barbecue on Sunday.

The Republican Central Committee meets Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Rood Administrative Center. The featured speakers for the monthly meeting include Nevada City resident Fred Buhler, a retired international banker who recently returned from Iraq, where he was part of the economic policy team and worked on projects to rebuild the Iraqi banking system.

“The news is full of all of the tragedies that happen, but there are also some very good stories, and during my talk, I hope to discuss some of those stories,” Buhler said Monday.

Scott Leslie and Aaron Klein – both candidates for the Sierra Joint Community College District – will also be speaking. Klein is a candidate for the board’s trustee area 7, which is in Nevada and Placer counties. Leslie is seeking a seat on the board for trustee area 3, in Placer and Sacramento counties.

The Republican Barbecue will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Grass Valley restaurant Holy Smoke will be catering chicken and beef while residents listen to speeches by U.S. Rep. John Doolittle and state Sen. Sam Aanestad, candidate for state treasurer Bill Simon, state insurance commissioner candidate Phil Kurzner, Nevada County supervisor candidates Nate Beason and John Spencer, and incoming District 5 Supervisor Ted Owens.
