Chairman's Message

Greetings fellow Republicans

Posted: December 8, 2013 at 10:58 am   /   by   /   comments (0)

MichaelHiggsI am honored and truly humbled by my fellow Central Committee members’ faith in my abilities to lead our party here in Montgomery County. We were extremely fortunate for the five years of exemplary service to the party by my predecessor, Mark Uncapher. And now our good fortune continues as Mark has graciously agreed to continue giving of his time and talents as Treasurer.

While the challenges that lie ahead are daunting, they are by no means insurmountable. Separately, we represent lone voices in the liberal wilderness that is Montgomery County. Together we are well over 125,000 strong, and can effect seismic shifts in the political landscape. We are in the midst of revamping our organizational efforts, utilizing the latest technologies and professional databases available to better engage with the voting public.

We are working closely with our active Republican and conservative groups in the county to coordinate outreach efforts. We are working on new and innovative ways of raising funds that are much needed to enhance the MCGOP’s abilities to connect with voters and better assist Republican campaign efforts.

Speaking of fundraising, I am pleased to announce that we will be holding a micro-finance competition throughout 2014. We will provide more detail in January (after the lawyers have given their blessing!), but every donation of $5 or more to the MCGOP (easy to accomplish via PayPal) will be eligible for a special year-end prize, with an extra special prize drawing for everyone who gives at least $5 in every month of the year.

Other Announcements:

  • Please come out to our Toys-for-Tots Christmas Party on Sunday. It is always a fabulous event and a great cause.
  • Deadline for Candidate filing is Feb. 24.   We need good Republicans to run for office in Montgomery County. We must cede no ground!  Please talk to your friends and neighbors about running or office.  Not just for State and Federal offices, but for offices such as Register of Wills and Board of Education. We will provide you with all of the tools necessary to run a professional campaign.

Thank you once again for all of your support, and with your help, we will return Republicans to office in Montgomery County in 2014!
