Greetings Fellow Republicans.
Festival season is upon us and we need YOU to make it a success!
Gwinnett’s community festival season kicks off with Grayson Day on April 26 and your Gwinnett GOP Executive Board is busy making plans to participate in as many of the annual events as possible – all the way through to the Lilburn Christmas Parade in December.
In the midst of the mid-term election cycle, these community events are important opportunities for us to present our positive, conservative message to the citizens of our great County.
I’m sure you know, these events don’t happen by themselves. It takes hard work, time and dedication by volunteers like you to help set up the tent, transport campaign materials and provide smiling faces to greet our visitors during festival hours.
It’s public opinion poll time again!
As you are all aware, the Georgia General Assembly is well on its way in what promises to be one of the shortest legislative sessions in recent memory. With qualifying for candidates and the primary elections being moved up, our current elected officials are hoping to end the 40 Day Legislative Session by March 20th so they may focus on spending time with you and asking for your vote in their re-election campaigns.
Your Gwinnett GOP Executive Board thought this would be a good time to ask you to weigh in on some of the issues being debated this Legislative Session and to gauge your support for candidates in the race for Governor, US Senate and State School Superintendent.
The Executive Committee of the Gwinnett County Republican Party has called for a special election for the position of Second District Chair to fill the seat held by Dennis Keye and the position of Third District Chair, held by Jef Fincher. The election will be held at 7:30 PM on Thursday March 13th, 2014 at Gwinnett GOP Headquarters, 46 South Clayton Street in Lawrenceville.
The election will be held in conjunction with the regularly scheduled County Committee meeting on that date. Anyone wishing to vote in the meeting must be in line to sign in by 7:30 PM. Only County Committee members living in school district 2 are eligible to vote in the second district election, and only members living in school district 3 are eligible for the third district election.
Almost all of us have been touched by cancer in some way, so we’ve decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event May 9th-10th.
At the event, our team will camp out overnight and take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society in the world’s largest fight for more birthdays.
Our team is doing our part to make sure that cancer never steals another year of anyone’s life. Please join our team or make a donation, because saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, and one dollar at a time.
2014 is going to be an important year for the Republican Party. This year, all the state’s constitutional officers are up for re-election, we will elect a new Georgia Senator, plus state representatives and senators, county commissioners and school board members. Democrats have announced candidates for Senator, Governor and State School Superintentent, and there are certain to be more challengers in the months to come.
Gwinnett County is certain to be an important factor in the elections, with Democrats eager to turn the county purple. And that’s why we need you to join the Gwinnett GOP or renew your membership for 2014. To make it easier, we have changed the options for membership.
