The Maine RLC Leadership Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Augusta on Saturday, April 25 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
This conference will be most beneficial for future candidates and campaign managers who share a commitment in returning the GOP to its roots of protecting individual liberty and limited government.
Past and present elected officials and campaign consultants have been asked to participate. The featured speakers are Dean Scontras of the Maine Republican Project and State Rep. Richard Cebra. RLC member Vic Berardelli will discuss Effective Campaign Communication. Of course, RLC leader and former State Rep. Ken Lindell will be attending, too.
Dean Scontras recently ran for Congress in Maine’s First Congressional District. Rep. Rich Cebra is currently serving as the Cumberland County Republican Committee Chairman. RThrough effective organizing and a grassroots turnout, he upset the establishment to elect his slate of change oriented Republicans.
