1. Biographical information – age, family, where you live now and are originally from
My name is Brian K. Pritchard, I am running for Georgia Republican Party 1st Vice Chair. My wife Lisa and I live in Fannin County. We have two children, five grandchildren, and two big dogs.
2. Employment history
My background is in architectural technologies. I spent a great deal of my life in the construction and building material industry. I left the construction industry in 2009 when the economy crashed. My wife and I opened FYN Media Group 13 years ago which operates a Digital Marketing dept, News dept, Team FYN Sports, FYNTV and the Voice Of Rural Network.
3. Educational history.
Did not respond
4. Criminal/legal history.
Did not respond
5. History of political involvement – positions held, etc.
I am a lifelong Republican. I have never held a position in the Republican Party, but I have been actively involved in the Republican Party my entire life. I attend 80% of all my local Fannin County Republican Party meetings. I also attend approximately 30 different county meetings on a consistent basis and bring unspoken updates of what’s really happening in our country. Updates that are purposely left out and misconstrued by the liberal media. I am a conservative political analyst who has professionally moderated over 40 debates. I study and relay the constant attacks and hidden agendas which are continually disguised as “progress” and “modernization” and call it out for what it is and what it intends to do to our nation and future generations.
6. GRA membership – how long a member, why did you join (or why you have not joined yet)?
I am not a member of the GRA. I work as a Conservative Political Analyst & Political TV Host so I am not a member of any group other than the Republican Party. FYN Media Group is the official media marketing group of the Power of Five. This is a group created by the Fannin, Gilmer, Pickens, Towns & Union Counties’ Republican Party. I am in no opposition to the GRA or would never discourage anyone from joining.
7. Other political/professional/social organization memberships.
I am not a part of any organizations other than the GOP.
8. Donations made/candidates and committees supported
My wife and I do not make personal donations, nor does FYN Media Group make any political campaign contributions to any political candidates.
9. What principled legislative initiatives have you supported, and what bad legislation/policy have you opposed?
I am tired of Republicans not upholding conservative Republican values in Georgia. I am glad they passed a Religious Liberty Bill, Constitutional Carry and the Heartbeat Bill. Outside of that it is hard to find conservative legislation in the Georgia Legislature. It’s almost impossible to believe that Republicans have introduced gambling, HB1013 and HB520. They did not pass HB520 but they did slip a section of it into SB23, a Georgia Data Analytics Center. This is the beginning of losing our personal privacy and red flag laws.
10. What are your top three priorities for the role you are seeking?
My priorities as 1st Vice Chair will be supporting the GOP State Chair. I will work with the Chair to develop a plan to win in 2024. I will not support the chair to a fault; however I will pledge to give my full support as long as the Chair upholds the true values of the Republican Party. I will give my full support to the District and County Chairman. They will always be able to reach me and I will give my full support to ensure we can get local and district candidates elected. If we plan to win in 2024 we must build a full staff together at the State level. Local parties have to be able to count on the State party for resources and support.
11. What is your position on GRA’s principles and goals (see https://georgiara.com/party-goals/ ) ?
I have read the GRA’s principles and goals on the website. I am a Christian who believes in the sanctity of life and the traditional family. I am also a strong constitutionalist. My values align with the goals and principles on your website.
12. What do you believe is the role of the party in holding politicians accountable?
When a candidate asks the voters to be the Republican Party nominee they need to uphold true Republican values. What good is signing a loyalty oath to the party if you’re not going to uphold the values of the party. If Republican lawmakers do not uphold our values we should do the same thing to them that Wyoming did to Liz Cheney, “Wyoming Republican leaders voted to no longer recognize Rep. Liz Cheney as a member of their party”. If we do this just once, I believe they all will get the message.

14. Who are your political heroes?
My list of political heroes could get pretty long but I will start with family. My father Gerald Pritchard was a lifelong conservative Christian and always active in the Republican party. My father raised all four of us kids to be Christians and Constitutional Patriotic Republicans. The Pritchards have been Republicans since the late 1800’s My great grandfather James Pritchard was a Republican North Carolina State Representative in 1913. We have a strong history of proven conservative work.
I have always been a student of who I think may be the greatest Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia. One of the best books one could ever study is Scalia’s Court. I am a Ronald Reagan Republican and a Donald Trump supporter. Some of my favorite Reagan quotes are:
Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man.
We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.
If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.
We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.
15. Why are you seeking the endorsement of the GRA?.
Did not respond
16. What will you do to keep the Georgia State GOP aligned with the grassroots conservative movement of Georgia instead of being driven by the National GOP?
The grassroots is the Georgia GOP. We are the 80%, they (RINO’s) are 20% of the party. If the national GOP tries to come in and take over the GA GOP and push the grassroots. I will go public using my media platform to expose it. Won’t happen on my watch!
