The Chairman’s Message – July 8, 2013

July 8, 2013

Fellow Republicans,

Good afternoon! I hope you and yours had a wonderful time celebrating the birth of our nation and honoring our freedom fighters both past and present for their service to our country.

The Georgia Republican Party office in Atlanta is buzzing and today is the first of many bimonthly emails to keep you informed and “in the know” about the happenings of the
Georgia GOP.

While we are sad to bid farewell to Mika Kawana, Anna Ford, and Brian Keahl, who worked tirelessly over the years for the betterment of the Party, we are happy to welcome to the GAGOP Staff Adam Pipkin as Executive Director, Brad Hughes as Political Director, and Qiana Keith as Executive Assistant. The new staff will have big shoes to fill but I am confident in their skills and look forward to working together to improve operations and enhance outreach.

Under the leadership of longtime grassroots activist Joe Dendy, the Georgia GOP will establish regional offices throughout the state just in time for the 2014 election cycle. These storefronts will serve not only as a command center for volunteers and campaign staff but will also help to promote the Party in key areas of the state. Stay tuned for more information about this exciting endeavor!

As I am sure you’ve noticed, the Party’s social media presence has ramped up since the
State Convention. As promised, we are putting a huge emphasis on Facebook and
Twitter as a means to communicate with Republicans in Georgia and throughout the
entire United States. I hope you will not only LIKE us on Facebook and FOLLOW us on Twitter but also let your voice be heard. By SHARING posts and RETWEETING, we will grow the Party by amplifying the conservative message.

Finally, I want to thank all of the members of the State Committee for their hard work last month in Milledgeville. We had a productive meeting and I look forward to working side-by-side in the coming years to move this Party forward.

It is truly an honor to serve as your Chairman and I look forward to seeing you soon!
