Do Politicians Serve You, or Do You Serve Them?

Do Politicians Serve You, or Do You Serve Them?

Fellow Republican,

What is the easiest way to kill a volunteer political organization?

Try to silence the voice of volunteers and refuse to take a stand for accountability of politicians/elected employees.

The Republican Party in Georgia is better equipped to fight than it has been for years. As discussed previously (link) many, many new people have joined the GOP in Georgia to demand accountability and principled candidates for office, and a loud, toxic minority in the GOP , mostly who think that the rest of us should blindly follow their “expertise” are doing whatever they can to stop it.

Fellow GRA Members,

While there have been a lot of political setbacks for Republicans around the country, it’s been a successful and exciting year so far for the GRA. As you know, this year was a convention cycle for electing party leadership from the precinct level all the way through the State GOP. And as we had asked for, the GRA delivered.

GRA members offered themselves for party office throughout Georgia. Our endorsed candidates for GOP Chairman (David Shafer) and Second Vice Chairman (Brant Frost V) won overwhelmingly at the GAGOP State Convention. Other GRA members ran strong statewide campaigns, showing the depth and strength of the GRA. 

The GRA assisted in training people newly involved in politics how to be involved on the local level, leading to many successes throughout the state. GRA members were elected as county and district GOP chairmen throughout the state, including but not limited to Ron Hooper in Banks County, Salleigh Grubbs in Cobb County, Marci McCarthy in DeKalb County, and Joanna Hildreth in Catoosa County. Denise Burns was elected as 14th District Chairman, GRA Treasurer Nathan Porter was elected as Sixth District Chairman, and many others were elected to the GOP State Committee.

Even with these victories, we have much room for growth and improvement in the GRA. We need to stay razor focused on getting our endorsed candidates elected into party and public office. And this requires help from all of our members in volunteering to help educate, engage, and recruit more members as well as spreading the word about the GRA by talking throughout your communities and wearing your GRA name badges. If you wish to volunteer to help with any of our initiatives, please reply and let us know.

I look forward to continuing to work with you in standing for principled Republicanism and restoring the Republican brand.
