North Salem Republican Town Committee Fundraiser success!

On Friday, September 23, 2022, the North Salem Republican Town Committee held a committee fundraiser with many local dignitaries, officials, candidates, and constituents present.

Assemblyman Mike Lawler, who is running for the 17th Congressional district, which includes North Salem; Gina Arena, Republican candidate for the 40th State Senate; Erin Lee Crowley, candidate for District 9 Putnam County Legislator; John Sarcone for NYS Supreme Court; Linda Michetti Murray for Supreme Court; and John Burnett, Executive Vice-Chairman for the New York State Republican Committee, all gave rousing speeches to bring attention to the failures that one party rule has brought to New York.

Local officials North Salem Town Supervisor Warren Lucas, Deputy Supervisor Peter Kamenstein, and Town Councilman Brent Golisano were also in attendance. As well as Somers Town Councilman William Faulkner, Bedford GOP Chair Mike Palladino, and our former North Salem Congresswoman, Sue Kelly. 

It wasn’t all about politics however – there was also live music, drinks, a silent auction, and plenty of wine and food. Wine was courtesy of Depot Wine & Liquors in Brewster, and a glorious dessert was provided courtesy of Frank’s Pizza of Croton Falls.

North Salem High School Junior Andea Sarno was awarded a $100 prize, a Certificate of Achievement, and a pocket U.S. Constitution for getting a perfect score on the North Salem Republican Town Committee’s 2022 Constitution Day Quiz. Andea was in attendance with her parents to receive the award. North Salem high school student Veronica BenVenuto was the runner up with a $50 prize.

Past NSRTC Chairman, William Monti, was recognized for his 30 years of service to the committee. The event was deemed a success by all who attended. The committee hopes more will attend future events, and partial proceeds will be funding the new North Salem Republican Town Committee’s High School Senior scholarship for 2023. This scholarship will go to a student studying history, government, or computer science in college.

A portion of the proceeds also went to the charity, Putnam Service Dogs, where our donation will be added to a $20,000 reserve raised by the efforts of the Putnam County Women’s Republican Club, for a service dog to a veteran.
