“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance” Thomas Jefferson
First, let me say congratulations to Congressman Rob Wittman in his hard-fought bid to continue to represent the 1st District of Virginia.
Corey Stewart and Gordon Silver may have lost their bids, but they worked hard and put everything they had into their races. We thank them for their efforts in promoting the conservative cause.
We would also like to thank all our Election Day warrior volunteers who braved the cold and rainy weather to help out and do what was needed.
I would like to personally thank Tony DeTora for all his work as First Vice Chairman. Your diligence paid off and it showed at the polls. I would also like to thank Crystal Vanuch (Second Vice Chair), and the Magisterial Chairs (elected and acting) who stepped up and worked hard in the districts that they were responsible for representing on Election Day. They are:
1. Jim Fry, Aquia District
2. Jerry Fitzgerald, Falmouth District
3. Bart Randall, Garrisonville District
4. Mike Rodriguez, Hartwood District
5. Crystal Vanuch, Griffis Widewater District
6. Craig Tones, Rock Hill District
7. Bill Stewart, George Washington District
So, now down to business, the election is over and its time to take a deep breath and regroup. We lost the US Senate and the Board of Supervisors races. We managed to keep the US Congressional seat, but not by many points. With the new growth in Stafford, particularly in North Stafford, our demographics are changing. What worked in the immediate past to elect conservatives to office also needs to change and adjust. There are many ideas that we can explore to make that happen. Starting with the January meeting, we will be focused on those ideas so that we will be ready for next year and the years to come. So, bring your ideas and lets work together to be stronger in 2019!
Since the November meeting landed on Veteran’s Day weekend, it has been cancelled. There is NO MEETING THIS MONDAY!!!!!!
And, to all the service men and woman, along with their families, who have fought for our great country, WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. God bless you!
We will be having a Christmas Party and business meeting on Wednesday, DECEMBER 12, 2018. Location will be at the Augustine North Community Center, located at 201 Monument Dr, Stafford, Va, as in years past. Details will follow with the agenda for the December meeting. I do need some help with the party. So, please let me know if you are interested in helping to make a dish or bringing some decorations for the event!
Thank you again to the Committee for your hard work in promoting the conservative ideals for which we all care about. If we want to succeed, we must work together toward our common goal.
