Congratulations to Our Year End Award Winners

Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas!

Tis the season for holiday parties and end of the year celebrations.

If you missed our annual Christmas/Hanukkah celebration Brunch Saturday, you missed a great time! As is our tradition in the Gwinnett GOP, we gather each December to take time to look back at the year, celebrate our victories, thank our amazing volunteers and enjoy friendships and fellowship.

This year we were delighted to host Congressman Rob Woodall and Congressman-Elect Jody Hice who each reminded us that the origin of our faith and our foundational freedoms are one in the same.

We also took time to honor some very special volunteers. Each and every one of our GOP activists were integral to the successes we saw at the ballot box in November but some folks stood out for their commitment to success this year, and every year.

Golden Eagle Award for Military Service to Country and Party – Bill Reynolds
Goldwater Award for Service to the Party – Mark Williams
Goldwater Award for Service to the Party – Charles Kirkman
Horizon Award (Volunteer of the Year) – Jon Richards
Joan Zellner Lifetime Achievement Award – Don Butler

Chairman’s Message, November 24th, 2014

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!

Message From the Chairman, November 3rd, 2014

24 hours.

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.

Message from the Chairman, October 30th 2014

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?
