Candidates, friends, elected officials and members of the Easton Republican Town Committee held their annual Red, White & Blue dinner on Sept. 8 to officially kick off the 2023 campaign season.
State Senator Tony Hwang introduced the entire slate of candidates, specifically noting the five women leaders who make up the top of the Republican ticket. If elected, it would be the first time in Easton’s history that so many women simultaneously held top roles within Town Hall.
Chairman Lou DiPietro thanked all attendees for coming to the dinner, which was a significant fundraising event for the municipal campaign. The Easton RTC
announced its endorsed slate of candidates in July.
