HAMMONTON — The Hammonton Regular Republican Club has established a Young Republican Committee to reach out to young voters, said Publicity Chairman James Mac Lane.
Created at the club’s Feb. 4 meeting, the committee will focus on reaching out to Hammonton residents 45 and younger, Mac Lane said.
Club member Joe Ingemi will head it, Mac Lane said.
“Appealing to young voters is critical for future success. This committee is how we win the future here in Hammonton,” Regular Republican President Charles Woolson said in a written statement.
The committee’s goals are to give younger Hammonton residents a voice in the club, build civic engagement and develop new local leaders. It will sponsor a speaker series, voter outreach and social engagements for younger residents and families with children, the statement said.
Atlantic County Republican Chairman Keith Davis and Atlantic County Freeholders Alex Marino and John Risley, as well as Sheriff Frank Balles, attended the Regular Republican meeting and a meeting of the newly formed rival Hammonton United Republican Club, also on Feb. 4.
That night, Davis said he hoped the split between factions in the town’s GOP will be healed soon and the two clubs again will unite and back one set of candidates for Town Council in this year’s election.
