Catoosa RAs & Liberty Watchdogs Defeat Redevelopment Powers in Ringgold, GA

Catoosa RAs & Liberty Watchdogs Defeat Redevelopment Powers in Ringgold, GA

Northwest GA—On Tuesday, voters in Ringgold, Fort Oglethorpe, and Catoosa County all overwhelmingly rejected a controversial Redevelopment Powers proposal on the ballot that would have given the local municipalities the authority to create “Tax Allocation Districts” (TADs) and provide Tax Increment Financing for redevelopment.

These redevelopment powers operate on the premise that “blight makes right”! That is, any part of the community which the local government agency deems to be “blighted” can become a “project area” and be artificially stimulated by tax dollars through corporate welfare to developers. A similar measure was defeated earlier this year in Whitfield County.

One of the concerns expressed by voters was the permanence of this proposal, if adopted. Like many additional or emergency powers, when once surrendered by the people and seized by the civil government, they have no expiration date and power thus surrendered is not easily restored.

Joanna Hildreth wears many hats as an activist in the area. In addition to serving on the GRA Executive Committee, Joanna was elected this year as the Catoosa County GOP Chair, and she serves as the Vice President of the Northwest GA Republican Assembly chapter. She was very pleased with the outcome of the vote on Tuesday: “I opposed the referendum because at the root it increases the government’s power. I believe in small government, and this was a step in the other direction. We can’t trust that every county board in the future will wield these additional powers wisely. If the referendum had passed, the people would never be able to vote to end it. Only the governor has that authority.”

The Catoosa GOP voted to publicly oppose the Redevelopment Powers—in opposition to their state legislator and fellow Republicans State Rep. Dewayne Hill (R-Ringgold) [who has an “F” on his GRA Voting Scorecard, by the way] and Rep. Steve Tarvin (R-Chickamauga) who together co-authored HB 778, HB 764, and HB 766, the legislation that put the Redevelopment Powers question on the ballots in the first place. “The GOP precinct chairs were instrumental in calling voters, door-knocking, and sign-waving,” Hildreth explained. “Mitchell Horner, Ringgold precinct chairman of the Catoosa GOP and chair of our policy committee, started the Committee on Catoosa Taxation to raise money and purchase signs.”

The Catoosa GOP partnered with other groups like the Northwest GA Republican Assembly and also utilized social media, radio and television interviews.

Liberty activist Nick Ware attended the October 4th Town Hall meeting about Redevelopment Powers that was held at the Colonnade. “After I heard that presentation I knew I had to push forward,” he said. “I wan’t going to let the ‘powers that be’ have power forever and not stand up!” With that inspiration, Nick decided to put his liberty convictions in action and prepared a presentation about the potential danger of this measure and began spreading the word in the County. Ware and many Catoosa voters believed this measure was problematic for various reasons: it’s interference with the free market, the indebtedness it would create, the lack of accountability, and the special favors and deals it would allow to be given to the political elite and their friends.

“I utilized as many tools as I could to educate the voters,” said Ware.

Threat of Eminent Domain Prompts Emotional Response

Catoosa homeowners were also concerned about the threat of property seizure through eminent domain under this proposal.

“Supporters say if you keep your property looking tidy, you have nothing to worry about. But what about the elderly and disabled who can’t keep their house tidy?” said Nick Ware.

Nick expressed concern for people like the elderly couple who live and operate a small fruit stand on Boynton Road against whom a complaint had recently been filed or the woman overcome with worry and brought nigh to tears because her property borders an area intended to be developed. “I advised her to just hold out and see how the vote goes”, he said, “and she was very happy to hear about the outcome.”

Originally, eminent domain required proof that a property was being taken for “public use” such as the widening of a road, but in 2017 Georgia law was amended to allow local governments to use eminent domain to condemn blighted property and transfer it to a private developer for purposes of economic development. Of course, the original property owner is still entitled to receive what the civil government officials deem “just compensation,” but what is that to the owner of his childhood home or the property that has been passed down through family generations?

Not all Catoosa citizens share these concerns, however. John Pless, the Public Information Officer for Catoosa County told the Chattanooga Times Free Press, “What this would have done is essentially leverage the power of government to redevelop blighted areas. This was not a tax increase, and it was absolutely not a land grab.”

The referendum question was only narrowly defeated in the City of Fort Oglethorpe with only 51.05% voting “No” to Redevelopment Powers, and in the City of Ringgold 60.29% voted “No.” However, in Catoosa County voters rejected it by a staggering 82.55 percent! The fact that the measure failed in all three districts, to the local GRA and liberty activists, is a triumph worth celebrating. Voter turnout was remarkably low with only 4,927 ballots cast for the entire County, a mere fraction of the 32,099 votes cast in Catoosa in the 2020 Presidential election. Some voters have suspicions that controversial measures like these are intentionally put forward in election years where voter participation is expected to be low in order to increase their chances. But the vigilance and community organization of grass roots activists were able to win the day in spite of the low turnout.

George Bettersby protested the TAD in the public comments portion of the October 21 Catoosa Board of Commissioners Meeting. He said, “The county has a horrible reputation for conflicts of interest… The County has had so much problems trying to explain the TAD to taxpayers, they even brought in an expert from Atlanta to try and explain it to us old rednecks. Certainly the devil is in the details. However, one thing you can bank on: the local builders, developers will get richer on the aching backs of our taxpayers young and old.”

While some voters may not fully understand Redevelopment Powers, Tuesdays polling showed they were nonetheless skeptical and may have reasoned intuitively that, if government officials were not asking for more money and more power, they wouldn’t have to get voters permission with a new ballot referendum.

An Ideological Ballot Question

The proposal was very broad and generic in nature and did not specify a certain area or a private developer that would benefit from it. This means the underlying question put to the voters was ideological:

Should local government have the power to artificially stimulate or develop an area that the free market has rejected and is therefore not developing organically?

Should the government provide enhancements that were not merited in the free market?

Should local government have the power to seize private property, against the will of the property owners in order to accomplish the community enhancements that elected officials deem beneficial?

The triple rejection of this proposal by the Cities of Ringgold, Fort Oglethorpe and Catoosa County is likely an indication of voters core worldview and fundamental beliefs about the role of government in the lives of the citizenry. A belief that would appear to differ from their elected representatives Dewayne Hill (R-Ringgold) and Steve Tarvin (R-Chickamauga) who sponsored the legislation.

The GRA Calls Out Fulton GOP for Fundraising for Atlanta Democrat

The GRA Calls Out Fulton GOP for Fundraising for Atlanta Democrat

“Fulton County GOP corruption strikes again!” The Georgia Republican Assembly has joined with voices of other concerned Republican political activists in metro-Atlanta by expressing their shock and displeasure at yet another new antic of the Fulton GOP.

The Fulton County Republican Party posted on their official Fulton County GOP web site, which is paid for with donations to the Fulton GOP, a brochure advertising a fundraiser for Democrat Atlanta City Council President Felicia Moore. Moore is running for Mayor of Atlanta.

Screenshot of the fundraiser for a Democrat on the Fulton GOP web site

In addition, the Fulton GOP Chair Trey Kelly and his fellow Fulton GOP officer Ashford Schwall appear on this fundraiser event for the Democrat Atlanta City Council President! In addition to serving as officers of the Fulton GOP, Trey and Ashford are also on the Georgia 11th District Republican Party Commitee along with many members of the Cobb Republican Party, the Bartow Republican Party, and the Cherokee Republican Party. Michelle Carver from Fulton, the wife of 11th District GOP Chair Brad Carver (who was formerly found giving public donations to Democrat candidates) also included her name on the fundraiser event.

This is a clear-cut violation of the bylaws for the 11th District GOP and arguably a violation of GAGOP bylaws that prohibit any Republican officer from providing public support to a Democrat. For example, in the 11th District GOP bylaws, it states under Section 2.07 that officers of the 11th District Committee may be removed “for cause,” and it defines “cause” as, among other things:

“ii. Conduct detrimental to the party.”

“iii. Any public support, including financial support, of any candidate or nominee of an opposition party …”

The Rules of the Eleventh District Republican Committee, § 2.07 (b).

Holding a fundraiser for a candidate who is currently serving in office as a Democrat seems to be conduct “detrimental to the party.”

Members of the Fulton GOP who defended the actions of its officers argued that because Felicia Moore is running for Mayor of Atlanta, and the mayoral race is non-partisan, the rules of the party were not violated. We beg to differ. Both the letter and definitely the spirit of the rules are clearly violated.

Unlike some of the nitpickiness about rules that has been scattered lately in various GAGOP controversies on social media, this is a violation that strikes at the heart of why we have separate party organizations.

The response from those trying to justify the fundraiser also illustrates the disconnect within the group we call “the Establishment,” who care only about political power (rather than the Republican principles) in the Atlanta “swamp”:

Felicia Moore is currently holding office as a Democrat. Whether the particular office she is now running for is partisan or not, we know from the candidate’s political identification, current partisan office, track record, and worldview what the policies are she is going to promote if elected to new office! She is not going to be promoting policies that are consistent with Republican principles; she will be promoting Democrat policies. She will work to advance the Democrat Party in Fulton and squelch the Republican candidates in Fulton. No wonder then there was so many reports of election fraud coming from Fulton last year!

To put it another way: If you rename Atilla the Hun as “Joe Smiley,” it makes him no less dangerous. If you rename a bottle of arsenic as “sleeping potion,” it makes it no less dangerous. And if you rename a Democrat a “non-partisan,” it makes her no less dangerous!

“[E]lecting Democrats (even if they’re calling themselves non-partisan),” wrote GRA President Alex Johnson, “simply helps them [the Democrats] with fundraising and name ID. So then they can donate money to other Democrats (like Stacey Abrams) and their endorsement may sway others. It also gives them a perceived platform to advertise their brand (Democrat governance).”

“The GOP is a brand and a team,” Alex said. “As a brand, imagine it/your brand as Coca-Cola. Does Coca-Cola host events and then serve Pepsi at them, or suggest that people try out Pepsi products? No. What about having Pepsi and Coke both available, but just without labels on them? No again.”

“The Democrat Party,” GRA NFRA Director Nathaniel Darnell added, “stands for agendas that are immoral. Things like murdering the helpless and stealing from others. What Republican doesn’t acknowledge that murder and stealing are evil? Anyone who is a part of that becomes an accessory to that kind of evil activity. How can we in good conscience provide any kind of promotion to political candidates who are part of a party working to advance these kinds of evil statist activities?”

Furthermore, multiple Fulton activists have pointed out that there were one or two candidates who were Republicans also running for Mayor of Atlanta. Devonta “Sully” Sullivan was one candidate running who is reported to be a Republican, but the Fulton GOP and its officers are not throwing support behind any of them, nor are they seeking to recruit any better Republican candidate to run. With moments like this, we find ourselves wondering why the Fulton GOP thinks they exist. “With Republicans like you, who needs Democrats?”

The Cobb County chapter of the GRA initially posted on social media about this issue when the story first broke on Saturday, October 9th. The fundraiser was held on Friday, October 8th.

On October 22nd the Buckhead Young Republicans announced they are following the example of their elder peers and also hosting an event to promote an Atlanta Democrat running for Mayor. However, the Buckhead YRs would be giving attention to Felicia Moore’s opponent, the former incumbent Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. One significant difference between the events, however, is that the Fulton GOP event was specifically described as a fundraiser, while the Buckhead YR event appears listed as only a candidate speaking forum. Since the Fulton GOP has already made clear that they regard this race as an “anything goes” because the candidates are “non-partisan,” it appears they have no basis to complain against their youthful counterparts supporting this opponent to their preferred candidate.

GRA President Alex Johnson Elected President of the NFRA

GRA President Alex Johnson Elected President of the NFRA

Scottsdale, Arizona—Over the weekend, Republican Assembly leaders and delegates from all over the country met for the National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA) Convention. Attendees heard from elected officials such as House Freedom Caucus Chairman Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ), candidates such as Mark Finchem for Arizona Secretary of State, and spokesmen and educators such as Charlie Kirk with Turning Point USA.

On the final day of the convention, participating members of the NFRA Board voted to elect a new President for the national organization. Mr. Willes Lee (originally from Hawaii, but more recently moved to Virgina) has served as the NFRA President for the last four years, and has been a noted board member as well of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

When the tally of the ballots was reported, the Georgia Republican Assembly’s President Alex Johnson was announced to have won the election. GRA NFRA Directors Debra Williams and Nathaniel Darnell were both present to vote for Alex, who won by three votes. In addition to working as an attorney from DeKalb, Alex has helped to revitalize and rebuild the GRA over the last six years.

Watch Alex Johnson’s speech for his candidacy at the 2021 NFRA Convention.

In addition, GRA member James Jordan, CPA was elected as the NFRA Treasurer when his opponent decided to drop out of the race at the last moment.

“The NFRA will now become the organization it is meant to be,” said GRA NFRA Director Debra Williams. “Look forward to see great things happen!”

“Alex has built a great team, set a fine example, and spear-headed relentlessly over the last several years to build the GRA,” said GRA NFRA Director Nathaniel Darnell. “We know he’ll do a great job taking that same success to the national Republican Assembly organization.”

The NFRA announces Alex Johnson as the winner of the election.

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.

Cobb GOP Resolutions Critiquing Governor Brian Kemp Last Week Stir Controversy

Cobb GOP Resolutions Critiquing Governor Brian Kemp Last Week Stir Controversy

Last week the official Cobb County Republican Party Committee created something of a stir when they met last Thursday and passed several resolutions critiquing and “censuring” (a better word might have been “reprimanding”) Governor Brian Kemp, and calling for protections at all levels of civil government of medical freedom for citizens. The resolutions addressed time-sensitive subjects. The critiques of Governor Kemp concerned his handling of the allegations of election fraud and revisions to the voting system to ensure accuracy, the illegal immigration, and the indiscriminate admission of Afghan refugees.

Cobb RA member Michael Opitz was appointed as the Resolutions Committee Chairman of the Cobb County Republican Party and orally presented the resolutions, some of which were revisions of earlier drafts presented at a previous committee meeting. Supporters of Governor Kemp protested the resolutions on technical grounds, but the resolutions passed the committee overwhelmingly.

The GRA commends the GOP for holding elected officials accountable to Republican principles at all times. If Republicans do not promote their stated objectives, then the Republican Party becomes meaningless. While we have commended Governor Kemp’s performance in certain instances, we have also offered a critique of some of his actions as well. Such critiques are not endorsements of primary opponents, but instructive for all concerned and provide officials such as Governor Kemp the opportunity to correct their missteps before the next election. If Republican officials expect the grassroots activists to get out the vote for them during campaign season, they have a responsibility to listen to their concerns.

However, the Cobb YRs put out an email on Saturday condemning the Cobb GOP for passing the resolutions. Cobb RA member Nathan Adams called the author of the message on behalf of the Cobb YRs a “lobbyist, posing as a grassroots leader, tell[ing] you that you can’t hold your elected officials accountable …”. GRA President Alex Johnson added that actually most of the board members for the Cobb YRs have a conflict of interest: “One would think and assume that a YR group is ‘grassroots’. But simply look at the composition of their Board of Directors posted on their website: of the 4 board members listed, one of them works for a politician (a Congressman), and two of the others have businesses tied to lobbying that require politicians to like/support them.”

The GRA disagrees with the Cobb YRs about holding elected officials accountable, and our Board today passed a resolution supporting GOP organizations that have held officials accountable. Accountability helps motivate people to campaign and vote with the assurance that our candidates will do what they profess.

Members of the Cobb RA Executive Committee did, however, urge the Cobb GOP Resolutions Committee to provide copies of any proposed resolutions in advance with the Call of the Meeting in the future, and encouraged any party rules to be changed to ensure such a reasonable practice would be followed.

Watch the Keynote Speech from Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) at the GRA President’s Dinner

Watch the Keynote Speech from Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) at the GRA President’s Dinner

The GRA was honored and pleased to have Republican hero Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky) as our keynote speaker at this year’s GRA President’s Dinner on September 11th. We hope more Republican elected officials will learn from and follow Massie’s example of commitment to Republican principles, even when it is temporarily unpopular, for the long-term health of the United States. For those who missed his excellent speech, or for those who would like to watch it again, now you can view it from the GRA’s YouTube Channel:

We appreciate those Georgia Congressmen who have joined with Congressman Thomas Massie in his recently proposed legislation to protect our U.S. soldiers from being forced to be vaccinated. Georgia Republican Congressmen Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jody Hice, Barry Loudermilk, and Andrew Clyde have each signed onto this legislation. No one should be forced to wear masks or be vaccinated. We do believe in Medical Freedom for all.

GRA Represented at the “We Demand an Audit” Freedom Rally in Rome

GRA Represented at the “We Demand an Audit” Freedom Rally in Rome

Today the Georgia Republican Assembly participated in the “We Demand an Audit” Freedom Rally in Rome, Georgia where the GRA’s NFRA Director Nathaniel Darnell spoke alongside other activist leaders and candidates protesting the failure of Republican elected state officials to thoroughly and properly investigate the allegations of voter fraud in last year’s elections. The event was organized by GRA member Charles Stoker of northwest Georgia. The event was planned several weeks prior to former President Donald Trump‘s announcement that he would be hosting a similar rally himself in Perry, Georgia.

Nathaniel speaking for the GRA

“We do believe Secretary of State Raffensberger, Lt. Governor Duncan, and Governor Kemp had it within their constitutional jurisdiction to investigate the allegations of voter fraud prior to certifying the results, and they had the moral duty to do so,” said GRA NFRA Director Nathaniel Darnell, who also serves as the elected Chairman of the Cobb County chapter. “A special session of the legislature could have and should have been called last December, and there are audits and investigations they could pursue now. That being said, we do not necessarily think that means that Vernon Jones would be an improvement as the Republican nominee for Governor. State Rep. Vernon Jones has an extensive voting record as a Democrat state legislator, and you can see it on our voter scorecards on the GRA web site. His record does not demonstrate loyalty to Republican principles, and so there is no reason to assume he would necessarily do a better job than Governor Kemp.”


Representatives for Kandiss Taylor for Governor were present at the rally to speak on behalf of her candidacy as a third option for the Republican nominee for Governor. Kandiss Taylor herself was attending President Trump’s rally in Perry. Georgia may still have other candidates announce a run in the Georgia Republican primary for Governor besides Kemp, Taylor, and Jones.

“People compare Vernon Jones to Ronald Reagan because they both were Democrats who switched parties and ran for Governor in their states,” Darnell continued. “But Reagan went through a 18 year transition from being a Harry Truman Democrat supporter in 1948 to running for Governor of California as a Republican in 1966. During that transition Reagan proved his change of heart was real by stumping repeatedly for Republican candidates such as Nixon and Goldwater in California. It wasn’t an overnight change that appeared opportunistic. People have a good reason to be skeptical of Vernon Jones.”

The GRA has not yet voted to endorse a candidate in the race for Governor and probably will not until after qualifying is completed. It takes a two-thirds majority of the membership of the GRA in order for a candidate to earn the organization’s endorsement.

Other speakers at the rally in Rome included Ricardo Davis who was representing VoterGA, an organization that has been leading a key lawsuit in Fulton County to bring to light evidence of election fraud in that county. Garland Favorito has been the primary spokesman of VoterGA and works closely with Ricardo in that effort.

Harvey Wysong also spoke on jury nullification at the rally, and former candidate Derrick Grayson gave a charismatic speech calling out various Republicans in Georgia for hypocrisy. Speakers also protested violations of “medical freedom” through policies such as President Joe Biden‘s proposed vaccination mandate.

Highlights from the 4th Annual GRA President’s Dinner with Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky)

Highlights from the 4th Annual GRA President’s Dinner with Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky)

The 2021 4th Annual GRA President’s Dinner was a beautiful success! Attendees from all over the state were treated to a delicious three-course meal artfully presented in honor of the memory of the sacrifice of 9/11 and then heard from constitutionalist hero Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky). Congressman Massie is raising the bar for conservatism within the Republican Party, and it was an honor to have him speak as our keynote. We hope more of our elected officials from Georgia will learn to follow in his example of principle and courage.

In particular, we appreciate him being the only Republican in the U.S. House willing to go on record opposing every single multi-trillion dollar wasteful expenditure bill in response to the pandemic over the last 18 months, including the original “CARES Act” that started us on a path toward rising inflation!

Below are some select photos captured at the event. We appreciate everyone who helped to organize, plan, and host the event! In particular, we appreciate the careful planning of our NFRA Director Debra Williams, who has organized the GRA President’s Dinner for the last several years.

Celebrate Success with Us at the 4th Annual President’s Dinner!

Celebrate Success with Us at the 4th Annual President’s Dinner!

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.

-Alex

P.S. The GRA President’s Dinner (postponed from January due to logistical issues with COVID) has been scheduled for September 11, 2021 with Congressman Thomas Massie as the keynote speaker. Tickets are available now. Please save the date for the State GRA convention, tentatively scheduled for October 23rd. The National Federation of Republican Assemblies convention is scheduled for October 8-10, 2021
