The Republican Party of Los Alamos is hosting a Lincoln Day Dinner at 7 p.m. on Feb. 19 at the Best Western Hilltop House. U.S. Rep. Heather Wilson is the guest speaker and the public is invited to attend.

Wilson served as New Mexico’s Representative from District 1 following a special election after the death of Rep. Steve Schiff in March 1998.

She went on to win the next four elections, giving up her seat at the end of 2008 after running for the office of U.S Senate.

Much of Wilson’s focus in Congress was on national security issues, a very important issue for Los Alamos voters. She served on the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

She also served on the Committee for Energy and Commerce. Her subcommittees included Environment and Hazardous Materials, Health, Telecommunications and Internet, Technical and Tactical Intelligence, and Oversight and Investigations.

A 6:30 p.m. social will precede the Lincoln Day Dinner. The cost is $50 per person and $60 at the door.

All interested persons are invited to attend the dinner and speech. Make reservations by Feb. 17.
