Congratulations to our newest GRA chapter! The new North Metro Regional chapter was formed this evening, and it includes Cherokee County & Pickens County Republican Assembly members! We look forward to good things to come from this group.
GRA members from Cherokee and Pickens counties met this evening at the Las Palmas Mexican Restaurant in Canton to revitalize the chapter that had formerly gone dormant in the area. A body of new proposed bylaws were adopted by the participating membership, and then executive officers were elected to lead the new chapter organization.
The newly elected officers of the North Metro Republican Assembly regional chapter are Richard Jordan (President), David Oles (Vice President), Sandy Docherty (Secretary), and David Docherty (Treasurer).
Thereafter, the participating membership also voted to endorse some of the local candidates for local school board and Cherokee County Commissioner. As always with the GRA, an endorsement can only be won by a 2/3rds majority of the participating membership, and an option for “no endorsement” must always be an option on the vote. Only the following local candidates received the requisite votes to earn endorsement:
• For Chairman of the Cherokee County Commission: Harry Johnston
• For Schoool District 3: Cam Waters
• For School District 4: Chris Greggory
The GRA Board will be voting on accepting this new regional chapter at the next state board meeting. We look forward to providing you with more information on the new North Metro regional chapter in the days ahead.
