The 2018 HCGOP Precinct Meeting and Convention is complete – paper work and all! First, I want to thank all of you who helped to make this a great event! I am always amazed at the many volunteers who jump in to help with the planning, execution and yes, clean-up after our important events! Then of course I earnestly thank the many Republicans who gave up their Saturday afternoon to participate and vote on important business.
To highlight the afternoon…
-HCGOP gained 4 new precinct chairs and improved precinct organization as more committees formed.
-HCGOP credentialed 107 delegates seated for the District 11 and NC State Conventions.
-10 local candidates spoke and did an excellent job representing their campaigns, ideas and vision for Western NC and Henderson County.
-Congressman Mark Meadows and NC State Treasurer Dale Folwell gave riveting talks with insights on national and statewide issues including big wins for conservative values.
-Numerous candidates had tables with fund-raising materials and campaign collateral helping voters understand the options and differences.
-An incredible local artist, RuthEllen Boerman was featured for supporting the HCGOP with a beautiful original water color donated for a fundraiser. (See http://truevinestudio.com/ for more information on her art studio)
-The Lincoln Reagan Dinner on April 21st was launched publicly with great response.
-Apple Valley Middle School staff were very helpful for the entire process – and we appreciate all they do.
I owe a debt of gratitude for all the mentors, volunteers, donors, precinct chairs and elected officials who made my first year as Chair exciting and educational. I look forward to year two.
Last and most importantly– Do your homework and get out to vote in this primary. Candidate forums have been scheduled for April 10, 12 and 17th. Check HCGOP Facebook page for the forum details. I hope to see you there!
Merry Guy, Chair HCGOP
