Guest speakers Derrell Bradford, Sam Cole and Damion Frye will address topics in education as part of a panel moderated by club president John Van Wagner.

While many Republican clubs celebrate the esteemed President Lincoln as the first Republican president, Montclair Republicans can also take note that our town’s first African-American mayor, Rev. Matthew G. Carter, and first female mayor, Mary Mochary, Esq., were part of Montclair’s Republican community.

The Montclair Republican Club, independent of state and national organizations, favors limited government, personal liberty, and economic opportunity. Belief in individuals’ ability to rise and thrive, as Lincoln, Carter and Mochary did, and as we expect our children to be able to do, is a hallmark of Montclair Republican style. See you on the 12th at 7 pm. RSVP.
