County Committee Meeting and Election on July 9th

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.

Chairman’s Message – July 2, 2015

hope everyone is enjoying their Summer. It’s hard to believe that we’re already in July. Before you know it, Fall will be here and the campaign season will be in full force. As many of you have seen, it’s starting to get fired up and “crowded” with 14 candidates vying to be our nominee for President. On top of that, we’re expecting two more announcements. Who needs a scorecard?

In case you missed the June Breakfast, Joe Allen give a great presentation of the Gwinnett Place Mall area and the positive changes happening there. Joe is the Executive Director of the Gwinnett Place CID.

Salute Those that Served, Remember Those Who Gave All

Today, a young recruit will rise wondering if they made the right decision to serve their country. Learning to adapt to become a member of the world’s greatest fighting force. Hoping that the commands dealt from the Drill Sergeant won’t be forgotten at the end of the day. Hoping to make it through boot camp to graduation. For this we thank him or her for their service to the United States and pray for a safe career in the military.

Today, veterans from Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan will gather at the local VFW post to swap stories about their time in uniform and in country. Some stories will have them laughing, some stories will have them in tears. They’ll quickly learn they are there to lean on each other when necessary and form a tight bond that will remain with them through time. At the end, they’ll toast those who paid the ultimate price for their service. For this, we thank them for their service to the United States. We also pray that the ravages of war will leave their memory over time and peace will come to those who are suffering.

Chairman’s Message, June 2, 2015

Hello Friends,

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.

Help Pete’s Patriots Fight Cancer at Relay for Life

Dear Friends,

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.

Chairman’s Message, March 13, 2013

Dear Fellow Republicans,

Where to start?

Two years is a long time – but it flies by so fast. In two years much has changed in the Gwinnett Republican Party, but much has remained the same. In two years, we elected a new US Senator, and we said goodbye to our dear friend, Joan Zellner.

As I look back on the last two years, I am so proud of the many things we accomplished together but you know me, I always want to do more.

Organizationally, we redesigned our party logo, reworked our party membership levels and most recently finalized a much needed change in our Rules to make it easier for our District Managers to coordinate efforts with existing Precinct Chairs and to find new Precinct Chairs and volunteers in every corner of the County in advance of the 2016 election cycle. We also discovered that Republicans make some pretty good chili.
