As I travel the state, the most commonly asked question is this: “How do we grow the Party?” While the GAGOP has a comprehensive plan to grow the Party through diversity outreach, state-of-the-art technology, and strategic communication, there are “Two Small Things” that we can do now to help grow the Georgia GOP immediately.
First, while it is important to attend your local Party meeting, fundraising event, or community service project, it’s even more important to bring a friend with you. If the Republican Party’s message of freedom, opportunity, and prosperity means so much to you, shouldn’t you share it with those around you? By recruiting your neighbors, co-workers, or even your family members, we can grow the Party one person at a time and make a noticeable impact immediately.
Second, make a commitment to “Be a Republican” for 10 minutes a day. While conservatism guides you daily at work, in the marketplace, and at home, I challenge you to grow the conservative movement and the Republican Party by talking to those around you about what it means to be a Republican and how people can join their local Party. With the future of our country hanging in the balance, is 10 minutes a day too much to ask?
While elementary, these “Two Small Things” require commitment and follow-through. I am completely confident that we can defeat liberalism at the ballot box in 2014 and 2016, but we have to do the hard work now to see the results later.
I look forward to seeing you soon and hearing stories about how these “Two Small Things” changed your county, your District, and our state for the better!
Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party
