CONCORD—The New Hampshire House Business Caucus, in partnership with the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce, will host its second Business Roundtable with a potential candidate for the office of President of the United States on Wednesday, May 6, at noon at the Barley House restaurant in downtown Concord.  The likely candidate and featured speaker will be Ohio Governor John Kasich.

“We have had a terrific response and level of interest in this series from both the business community and elected officials.  We are thrilled to provide an opportunity for them to learn more about the candidates’ specific ideas for improving the business climate and economy,” said New Hampshire House Business Caucus founder and Chair, Rep. Laurie Sanborn (R-Bedford).

“Our members really enjoyed the first Business Roundtable, and are looking forward to this one and all future events.  This is the best way for businesses to really get to know the candidates and understand their positions on key issues,” said Tim Sink, President of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce.

John Kasich is a likely Republican presidential candidate and the current Governor of Ohio.   Previously, he was elected to the Ohio State Senate at the age of 26 and to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982 at the age of 30 where he served for 18 years.  He was the chief architect of the first balanced federal budget since man walked on the moon and chairman of the House Budget Committee. Kasich is known for his straightforward style and boundless energy, and has successfully taken on the challenge of getting Ohio back on track after both its economy and budget had fallen into disarray.

The event is free and lunch will be served.  Space is limited and RSVPs are required by May 4, 2015.
