From staff reports • Feb 5, 2020 at 1:30 PM

KINGSPORT — A new political organization debuted in town this week: Republicans of Kingsport.

More than 100 people came to the group’s inaugural meeting at the Eastman Road Food City. A steering committee had been established to form a club open to both men and women interested in promoting Republican values. A club goal is for members to unite and work together under a common goal where comments and suggestions would always be welcome, according to the meeting’s minutes.

Club objectives, according to a draft of its bylaws, are to promote an informed public through political education and activity; foster loyalty to the Republican Party at all levels of government; and to support the policies of the Republican National Committee and work for the election of Republican Party nominees.

Frankie Lambert was elected the club’s president.

Annual dues are $25.

The club’s next meeting is scheduled at the Eastman Road Food City on March 2.
