Republican group hosts Burgers and Politics
The Republican Party of Jefferson County announces the 16th year of Central Oregon's premier political gathering, Burgers and Politics. This gathering will honor the victims and survivors of 9/11 as well as the first responders who braved that assault on the nation. The organization recognizes all who continue to honor the country with their patriotic service.
On Saturday, Sept. 11 between 1 and 5 p.m., the Burgers and Politics event will take place at Over the Edge Tap House, 13959 SW Commercial Loop Drive in Crooked River Ranch.
As in past Burgers and Politics gatherings, they will reserve a solemn moment of reflection to show their resolve to Never Forget 9/11. Many local Republican elected officials as well as statewide candidates who have thrown their hat in the ring for various positions in the 2022 elections will be introduced. This is an opportunity for the public to meet the men and women who want to make a difference in the state and to ask questions.
This family-friendly get-together offers the community a chance to get to know and be informed by current elected officials and Republican legislators from various parts of the state, including Jefferson, Crook and Deschutes counties. Oregon Sen. Dennis Linthicum will be the keynote speaker and will share the victories and challenges the Republican Party faces statewide and how each member can have a voice and make a difference.
This will be an informal event with a town hall feeling. Admission and music are free. All food and beverages will be discounted, and there will be raffles and an auction. Kurt Silva will provide music as attendees mix, mingle, and meet like-minded neighbors, officials and candidates.
