Welcome to The Amherst Republican Committee Website
INDEPENDENCE DAY FLOAT - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
With the snow still lingering, it may seem a little premature to start thinking about summer, but our planning has already begun for this years Independence Day Parade and Float. We are in need of some volunteers to help with the planning and construction of the float, as well as someone who is willing to pull it down the streets of town in the parade.
The theme for this years parade is "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness". The Amherst Republicans have a history of creating magnificent award-winning floats, and Im sure this year will be no different!
If youd like to be part of the team, please contact Donni Hodgkins at donni_hodgkins (at) hotmail.com, and cc myself at scottcourtemanche (at) yahoo.com, and provide your email and phone contact information. Feel free to reach out to me for more information. We look forward to working with you and providing another terrific float to entertain this years crowd.

2016 ELECTION WRAP-UP
Thank you Amherst voters! We had a strong 80% turnout for the 2016 General Election.
Congratulations to Pete Hansen, Reed Panasiti, and top vote getter Laurie Sanborn who will be our Republican Representatives in the NH House. Congratulations to Gary Daniels who was re-elected to the NH Senate and Dave Wheeler who was re-elected to the Executive Council. Republicans will continue to control both chambers of the legislature as well as the Executive Council. But now, we will have a Governor they can work with - Congratulations to Governor-elect Chris Sununu!
On the County level, Amherst voters helped to re-elect Dennis Hogan County Attorney, Jim Hardy Sheriff, Dave Fredette Treasurer, BJ Perry Register of Probate, and Amherst's own Pam Coughlin as Register of Deeds and Bob Rowe for County Commissioner. Congratulations to all of our Republican Hillsborough County winners!
Thanks to all who made the calls, knocked on the doors, and talked to your friends and neighbors about the strong leadership of Republicans and how that leadership benefits our town and our state. Clearly, the message was heard and Republicans will continue to lead the charge for limited government, lower taxes, more jobs, and more freedom for all of our citizens.
