PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE – JULY 28, 2008 MEETING HIGHLIGHTS

elephantgop.pngThis meeting was pretty much a straight-forward business meeting.  Of course, we started off with reports from the candidates.  Fortunately, campaign representatives provided these reports.  So the reports were short and to the point.  😉

Campaign Reports

Congressman Frank Wolf‘s campaign needs volunteers to knock on doors (see here).  Wolf’s rep specifically mentioned door-knocking.  If you want to get out and meet your neighbors, this is a good way to start.

Keith Fimian‘s rep announced their campaign has a new and improved website.  In addition, to celebrate his birthday, Keith is asking voters to come out and meet him at Occoquan Regional Park on August 2nd from 12 – 2 PM (see here).  Fimian Fans are encourage to knock on doors in the morning (see here) and to relax and enjoy the birthday party afterwards.

To remind folks of the stark differences between the candidates, Jim Gilmore‘s campaign rep read the following May 25, 1994 quote from Mark Warner.  Warner attacked the NRA.

One of the things you are going to see is a coalition that is just about completely taken over the Republican Party in this state and if they have their way it’s going to take over state government. It is made up of the Christian Coalition, but not just them. It is made up of the right-to-lifers, but not just them. It’s made up of the NRA, but not just them. It is made up of the home schoolers, but not just them. It’s made up of a whole coalition of people that have all sorts of differing views that I think most of us in this room would find threatening to what it means to be an American.  (from here)

Isn’t it nice to know that just wanting to run some aspect of your own life, not bothering anyone else, is threatening to some people?

John McCain‘s rep asked people to get involved in door-knocking.  These events are listed on PWCGOP.ORG (see the right hand side of the main page).  Here is a copy of what is currently scheduled.

Party Business

David Ray and Rick Hendrix, two of our State Central representatives, took a moment to speak on the progress RPV Chairman Jeff Frederick is making on implementing his plan for his first 100 days (see here).  They both seemed pleased with the progress.  What was immediately relevant to the PWCGOP is that Frederick has challenged local units to double membership.  We need all the volunteers we can get to help in the upcoming election.

The final item on the agenda involved a change in the PWCGOP Bylaws.  To encourage participation by young people, the PWCGOP changed the way dues are paid.   Previously, dues were collected biannually in a fifty dollar lump sum.  Since fifty dollars in a lump sum is enough to put off some people, the committee decided to allow members to pay their dues in annual installments (twenty-five dollars a year).  The committee recognized that this would require more work from the Treasurer (perhaps our hardest working volunteer).  Nonetheless, the suggestion was made and supported by several of the committee’s youngest members.  So after careful consideration, the committee decided it made sense to listen and amend the Bylaws

Note that amendments of the Bylaws require a vote of two-thirds of the Members of the Committee present at a meeting called for such purpose.  So any change requires strong support.
