Chairman’s Update – September 5th, 2012
Dear Fellow Republicans,
Let’s get ready to rumble! Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, and turncoat Charlie Crist are trying to convince Americans this week from their grandiose spectacle in Charlotte that the last four years have somehow NOT been a disaster, and that voters should reward them for an abject lack of leadership and policies that are leading to economic ruin. No. Thank. You.
After an impressive GOP convention last week, in which speaker after speaker showed how the GOP is ready on day one to get America working again, all the Democrats have left is to play the politics of division, tearing down Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan because the liberals have nothing to run on but the empty, unfulfilled promises from 2008. I recommend that you share this new RNC website and video with your friends (particularly any undecided independents).
Starting this Saturday, September 8th, the Gwinnett GOP is officially kicking off our “Gwinnett GOP Romney/Ryan Caravan.” Join us Saturday at 8:30 a.m. for our monthly breakfast rally at 550 Trackside in Lawrenceville (550 N. Clayton Street), featuring special guest Georgia Republican Party Chair Sue Everhart and our fall nominees, where we will also begin our “caravan” across Gwinnett County by trekking to Norcross to spend the day knocking on doors for the Romney/Ryan ticket, our House District 96 nominee Mark Williams, and School District 5 nominee H.K. Dido.
This Saturday begins our week-by-week focus on a different area within the county, as we will spend all next week focused on the area within School District 5, going door-to-door on Monday evening, September 10th in House District 81, where Chris Boedeker has a great shot at beating a Democrat incumbent, and later in the week distributing flyers, phone banking from headquarters, and doing more door-to-door. In essence, there will be a variety of opportunities for you to volunteer on almost every day or night between now and November 6th, and these opportunities will be varied enough that no matter what you like to do, and how much time you have to help, there will be something for you.
We have begun a sign-up form for folks to volunteer for the activities that most interest them – so far, we have only next week’s activities on the form, but soon will have it more complete. Here is the link: . Check back often and sign up as often as you feel led! In the meantime, I encourage you to be with us for the breakfast on Saturday (doors open at 7:45 a.m. – breakfast, juice and coffee are available). We also expect to have our initial shipment of Romney/Ryan yard signs and bumper stickers available at the breakfast.
Another quick note about Romney/Ryan yard signs – we have a web sign-up form where Gwinnett County residents can give us their address and we will make sure a sign is delivered to them. If you are unable to make it to the breakfast, I encourage you to use this sign-up form to request your yard sign. We will also have a supply of campaign materials available at our Gwinnett GOP headquarters (46 S. Clayton St., Lawrenceville), so feel free to stop by there any Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or Monday-Thursday from 5-7 p.m. if it’s convenient for you. Please check the sign-up sheet to make sure a volunteer is signed up to work at the time you would like to visit. And feel free to add your own name on the sign-up sheet as a headquarters staff volunteer if you have some time to donate to the GOP!
The Gwinnett GOP will also have a booth at the Gwinnett County Fair in Lawrenceville, running from Sept. 13-23. Thanks to Mary Adamski for coordinating all the volunteers to staff the booth at the Fair – she is a dynamo! If you would like to help with the Fair, call Mary at 770-880-4450.
Finally, if you would like to help the Gwinnett GOP in the Suwanee Day Parade on Saturday, Sept. 15th, please contact First Vice Chair Scott Haggard at 678-471-7259. The parade kicks off at 9:00 a.m., and we will be gathering about an hour before that. This is always a fun event for the family, so plan to join us for the parade and stay for the festival (or volunteer to go out with our group going door-to-door in School District 5!)
As you can tell, we are really getting things going in big way. Hang on – it’s going to be a wild ride, but for the sake of our children’s future, WE WILL WIN.
