Happy Thanksgiving Week!
As we enter this season of thanksgiving, let us all take time to reflect on the past year and remember those who have touched our lives and made each day special.
Politically, we have plenty of things to be thankful for and to reflect upon. Like you, I am thankful that we enter this season without runoff elections and campaign commercials! I look forward to January when good men and women take their oath of office in Georgia and in our Nation’s Capital.
In Gwinnett, we delivered a Republican electoral sweep complete with voter turnout that exceeded the State levels for Governor Deal, David Perdue and in overall turnout percentage!
I am thankful for the many volunteers who donated countless hours making phone calls, knocking on doors and delivering yard signs. We wouldn’t have been successful without them!
There really isn’t much else to say.
I’ve already seen a couple Christmas commercials on TV (thanks Target and Mercedes Benz) and got a text message from Belk Department Store offering a preview of Black Friday sales. At the same time, my phone is ringing with last minute robo calls in addition to the barrage of political commercials on TV and radio urging me to vote one way or another.
Two-Minute Drill Time.
You all know I love football and football analogies.
Today we enter the last 2 minutes of the game and we need to put together the final drive to win a very tight ball game.
Everyone has a role to play and must execute that role with precision.
What role will you play? Will you commit today to make phone calls, knock on doors, wave signs and/or drive voters to the polls?
The tremendous line-up of speakers this Saturday just keeps getting longer! The GA GOP Victory Bus Tour rolls through Gwinnett and will stop at our November breakfast! Governor Nathan Deal, Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens, Secretary of State Brian Kemp, Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black and US Senate Candidate David Perdue are confirmed to attend as they make one last stop in Gwinnett before voters go to the polls.
Our breakfasts are are 550 Trackside, at 550 North Clayton Street in Downtown Lawrenceville. We get started at 7:45 with breakfast, networking and coffee, and begin the program at 8:30 AM, wrapping up no later than 10 AM.
With just one week to go before Nov 4th, we have some pretty lofty goals to make 5,000 phone calls and knock on 1,000 doors each day.
Phone Banking and Door Knocking. Even 1 hour of your time can make a huge difference! We are calling and knocking EVERY Day/Night. Contact Eli for canvassing Eli.Mansour@gagop.org or Prisca Prisca.Villa@gagop.org for phone banking today!
Friday Night Lights, Sign Waving. We wrap up our Friday night sign waving back at Grayson High School with Team Joyce Chandler, Team P.K. Martin and others. We meet at 6pm and stay until just after kick-off (7:30).
