Thank YOU for your participation in our nominating convention.
Many hours of hard work and sacrifice by many, many people go into such an event. The road to the convention started many months ago by our volunteers doing the unsung work of the party. The process starts with having so many ready, willing and able people committed to delivering an excellent service to our party. So much of the work is done behind the scenes and often goes unnoticed. I would like to acknowledge and thank all of you who helped in any way for doing such a great job.
I would especially like to acknowledge our officers for all they do for our party. Lynda Pipkin organized caucus trainings, Meet the Candidate events and transitioned Leg 7 leadership to Justin Fawson and Dan Deuel. She supported the social media efforts in a very professional manner. Susanne Ellison Ferre took care of so many details in regards to the convention, the financial reporting and public disclosures. She thought through and executed the organization of the schools brilliantly. Melissa Marler is amazing. I can’t thank her enough for the job she did yesterday and throughout her term. Her organization and attention to detail is unmatched. Our check-in and credentialing went very smoothly. Thanks Melissa!!!
Our Leg district officers put in so much work the past several months. Finding precinct chairs, tracking down caucus locations, paperwork, and delegate information is time consuming and often very difficult. These responsibilities were taken seriously and performed with excellence. A big thanks to ALL of you for doing an amazing job with your districts.
As always, the Republican Women organization stepped up and helped with so many things including registration and elections. Their support of the party over the years has been amazing. Yesterday was no different. Thank you ladies:)
I appreciate all of our delegates for the commitment it takes to get to know the candidates and exercise an informed vote. All of you play an important part in the process. Our delegate attendance was 93% yesterday. Nice!
Finally, I would like to thank our candidates for putting themselves “out there” to seek election. You have represented yourselves and our party with style and professionalism. I am impressed.
Our party has a very large and diverse membership. It will only increase in size over the next several years. One of our greatest challenges will be to united and stick together for the greater good of our region, our county and our party. Inner party elections inherently produce conflict. I would like to thank you in advance for exercising efforts to come together and work for our constituents.
It is an honor to serve as your Chairman. Thanks for the opportunity and for your loyal support.
Again thanks for your service to the party, state, region and county.
