Conservatives to host speaker
LEWISBURG - The Susquehanna Valley Conservatives will host Lewisburg native Johanna Persing for a special lecture at 7 p.m. Monday at the Baylor East Conference Room, Best Western Country Cupboard Inn.
Persing, a graduate of Lewisburg High School and Gettysburg College, began an internship in the Republican National Committee Press Office after graduating from college and was eventually hired as a press assistant. During the 2012 election cycle, she was able to witness the inner workings of the RNC and their role in the primary process, the national convention, and the day-to-day communications strategy of the Mitt Romney campaign.
As a young conservative staffer, Persing will share her perspective of the RNC.
The meeting is free and the public is invited.
