First Capital Tea Party Group – January 2017

They say time flies when you’re having fun. Well, I must have been having a grand old time, because here it is the middle of January and we’re just getting the meeting news out. Where did that time go?

It’s a new year, a fresh start, the end of an error. Our new President-elect Donald Trump will be inaugurated on January 20th, new congress persons will be sworn in, giving us control across the board. The Supreme Court is now secure, health care can finally be fixed, restrictive regulations and agencies can be trimmed, oh, the list of things to get straightened out is daunting. Will we finally get our house in order? That depends wholly upon us. We have a representative form of government, where we elect people to represent US and conduct OUR business. If we send these folks to Washington but don’t stay in constant communication with them to make our concerns, needs, and wishes known, how can we expect them to do OUR bidding. Success over the next four years depends upon how well we communicate, and our level of involvement. We now have their attention, we must keep it. Every one of us should be on a first name basis with each of our representatives, and constantly providing them with feedback. Otherwise they forget for whom they work.

Our gatherings this year will continue to be on the 3rd Monday, 7pm, at The Brick in Frankfort, Ohio. This month, we are pleased to host Chris Scott and Dave Huggins as our featured speakers this month. Chris and Dave are part of the M.A.D.E. (My Attitude Determines Everything) program here in Ross County. Please join us as we hear about, “The Latest Thing Happening)!

Chris and Dave will be sharing how this great group of local youth and business people are coming together to be problem solvers and support givers to the cause of keeping our local youth off drugs.

Speaking of Trump’s upcoming inauguration, I understand the Republican Women of Ross County group is throwing a HUGE Inauguration Celebration. Heaven knows we’ve got much to celebrate this year. Tickets for the event will be available at our gathering on Monday night, so come on out and join us. We still open with a prayer and the Pledge to the Flag, hear great speakers, and fellowship with some great people. Light refreshments are available. Let’s get started on Making America Great Again!

Community Outreach and the Irrelevant County Central Committee

By Jon Morrow – The single biggest hurdle for the Republican party to overcome is outreach into the local community. Many Republican County Central Committees (CCCs) in Ohio have been stagnant for decades. Primarily, this is due to the notion that the party should not get actively involved in issues relevant to Republicans in their community. County Party leaders are normally happy with a few wins rather than dominating the political landscape – so they […]
