Dear Fellow Rockdale Republicans
We had a great time this past week at our state convention in Augusta. Some delegates went over on Thursday and stayed until Sunday. Many of our delegates brought their families and did some sightseeing and various other activities.
I personally enjoyed meeting and talking with my fellow county chairs, like Rose Wing of Cobb County. Rose and Dorthy Adams of Putnam County were always there for me after I became chairman. I could call on them any time I had a question. Dorothy was unable to attend the convention, due to her husband's illness. I will be forever indebted to these two wonderful women.
Randy Evans was re-elected as National Committeeman and Ginger Howard was elected as National Committeewoman, replacing Linda Herren. Linda has been our National Committeewoman, since 2004. She served with class and we are proud to have had her representing us at the Republican National Committee.
One of the most touching moments of the convention was when Maria Strollo Zack and Linda Umberger came on stage with Ginger and showed their unequivocal support for Ginger, even though they had lost the election to her. I feel this exemplary behavior is how we as Republicans should conduct ourselves on a local, state, and national level.
You are cordially invited to visit one of our upcoming meetings on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Amici's in Conyers located off of Parker Road.
