Newt Gingrich to Headline STEWARD Event

STEWARD today announced former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich will headline our upcoming Grassroots Communications Conference.

The event is scheduled for January 30th at Southern New Hampshire University. Free and open to NH residents, visit stewardofprosperity.org/conference for more information and to register.

Here is John DiStaso's Union Leader coverage of the breaking news:
With his profile and penchant for controversy as high as ever, Newt Gingrich will return to New Hampshire for the first time in nearly three years at the end of the month.

The Granite Status has learned that Gingrich, the former U.S. House speaker and author of the mid-1990s ‘Contract with America,’ will keynote a ‘Grassroots Communications Conference’ sponsored by businessman Fred Tauch's…STEWARD watchdog organization on Jan. 30. The daylong event is scheduled to be held at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester. …

He last visited New Hampshire in the spring of 2007 for a book signing and to organize workshops for a nationwide ‘Solutions Day’ that his 527-group, American Solutions for Winning the Future, held in September of that year. Gingrich can been seen almost nightly on one news network talk show or another commenting on health care, the war on terrorism, the Obama administration and the state of the GOP.

In New Hampshire, he'll join other speakers at the conference in talking about "emerging methods of communications to reach voters, constituents and activists," according to STEWARD.

In a release to be issued later this week, STEWARD, an acronym for Save The Economy Without Accumulating Record Debt, says the conference "will empower participants to disseminate a conservative message, organize and mobilize online."

Gingrich noted in a statement released to the Granite Status that in the summer of 2008, American Solutions ‘gathered the signatures of 1.5 million Americans who supported our “Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less”’ campaign in support of offshore drilling, an online grassroots achievement that created the momentum that led to the repeal of the executive and legislative branch bans.

"I look forward to discussing with New Hampshire conservatives how to utilize new media to drive our message of safety, prosperity and freedom and spur people to demand real change from their government," Gingrich said.

Other speakers so far scheduled for the conference are Andrew Breitbart, publisher of Breitbart.com and Breitbart.tv, and Stephen Gillett, Starbucks' Digital Ventures senior vice president, chief information officer and general manager.

Concord political strategist Michael Dennehy, a consultant for STEWARD and Tausch, called Gingrich "the pre-eminent creative thinker in the Republican Party. We could not ask for a better national figure to help underscore the importance of new media communications in campaigns and public advocacy today."
