Just a few days left to register for the Chairman’s Cookout and we don’t want you to miss it. We want you to come out, spend some time with us and grab a hot dog or hamburger!. This is also a great opportunity to invite your neighbors, friends and family members who are interested in helping out in the 2016 Elections but don’t know where, or how, to get started. So come on out and catch up with someone you saw just the other day or someone you may not have seen in a while.
July means it’s time for our next County Committee Meeting. We’ve got a full schedule for that evening with our guest speaker and special election.
Our featured speaker is Todd Rehm. Todd is a local Republican strategist and editor of the local political newsletter, GaPundit. Todd is always interesting to listen to and insightful about the happenings in Georgia. Be warned, he might talk you into adopting a dog or two!
We also have a special election that night due to the resignation of John Marsh, formally our 2nd Vice Chair. I’ve asked Carol Field to assume the duties of the position.
Can you believe it’s June already? It seems like just a few weeks ago, we were working hard to elect our slate of candidates for the Fall 2014 election. By the time we see each other again this Saturday at our breakfast, we’ll be two months away from the first Republican Primary debate for the 2016 election. With a projected field ranging from 14 to 18 candidates, I hope you’ll find a candidate that you’re willing to get behind and volunteer for. There’s already nine officially announced.
This Saturday at our breakfast, our guest speakers will be Joe Allen and Stephen Greenway. Mr. Allen is the Executive Director of the Gwinnett Place CID. He’ll be discussing the challenges of improving the business community in and around the Gwinnett Place Mall area. Mr. Greenway is the new chairman of the Georgia Association of College Republicans.

In the weeks and months to come, many of you will volunteer for the presidential candidate of your choice and fight the good fight in hoping that person prevails. After the primaries we will all come together and support whoever the nominee is to take back the White House.
Today I’m asking you to come together for another cause. That cause is fighting the good fight against cancer. We have a team in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. Our team is called Pete’s Patriots. So named after Pete Dingleday, a Navy veteran and activist in the Gwinnett GOP that lost his fight against cancer. Even in the adversity of his own illness, Pete was a fighter till the very end.
Dear Fellow Republicans,
On behalf of the current and previous Executive Board, I extend a heartfelt thank you for attending our County Convention. I am encouraging each and every one of you to attend your District Convention as well as the State Convention. This is a great way to show your support for the Gwinnett GOP to the rest of Georgia.
As a personal note, I am very grateful and honored to be elected to serve as your Chairman for the next two years. As I stated to you at the Convention, no task will be beneath me in making sure we keep Republicans elected throughout Gwinnett. Please don’t hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions or concerns. Your new Executive Board is already hard at work determining the best course of action for the next two years.
