The Republican Party of Los Alamos and the Los Alamos Federated Republican Women invite the community to attend a Meet & Greet for West Virginia House Rep. Saira Blair 1-3 p.m., Saturday at UNM-LA Student Center, Building 2. Refreshments will be provided.
Rep. Blair is the youngest elected state legislator in the U.S. In November 2014, at the age of 18, Blair defeated an incumbent to win a seat in the West Virginia House of Delegates from the state’s 59th District. She won her primary election at the age of 17, before she was eligible to vote.
Youth and young adults in the community are encouraged to attend Saturday’s Meet & Greet to meet Blair and find out why she ran for office, how she won, and how to possibly duplicate her success.
