KIMBALL ANNOUNCES NH GOP COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR
Concord, NH- Jack Kimball, Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party, announced today that Christine Baratta will be the Communications Director for the NH Republican Party.
“I am delighted to welcome Christine to our team as Communications Director,” said Kimball. “With her media experience and communications skills working on political campaigns, I am confident she has the ability to effectively cultivate our message of strong republican values. Christine has a record of aggressively exposing the radical democrat agenda and I know she will work diligently to communicate the views of the NH GOP and keep a watchful eye on the democrats in Concord as we work to grow the party and sustain our majority at the State House.”
“I am thrilled to be working with the chairman and I am committed to work alongside republican state leaders and legislators to reinforce our conservative message,” said Baratta. “I look forward to an exciting year welcoming the Republican presidential candidates as we gear up for the first in the nation primary. The people of the granite state spoke loud and clear in last November’s election by sending the tax and spend crowd in Concord packing in a clear rejection of the democrats ill-conceived policies and reckless spending habits. Chairman Kimball is the leader who will unite the Republican Party while promoting conservative values of fiscal responsibility and limited government.”
Prior to joining the NH GOP, Christine served as a communications consultant on state and federal campaigns in New England and was the Communications Director at Jim Bender for US Senate in New Hampshire.
Christine also has comprehensive media experience including working as a talk radio producer in Boston for over 10 years and covering the 2008 New Hampshire Primary and Presidential Election for Bloomberg News.
