Recently, as you may have heard, the PVRC held it’s elections. Although the mission remains the same, the new leadership team will take the reigns from the old in hopes to make anew.
1. over again; again; once more: to play the tune anew.
2. in a new form or manner: to write the story anew.
While the mission remains the same, we’ll focus on the latter definition of “anew”, in a new form or manner.
First, I want to recognize the previous leadership team(s) for creating and fostering the club through it’s infancy, the awkward years and it’s most recent adolescence. The charge of the new leadership team is to be aware of the importance of building coalitions in new and different ways, by incorporating new media, community outreach, and fundraising, as well as expanding the active participation of the club. This team will lead us out of adolescence and into maturity. How we label that will be defined by their success. I believe the general membership recognized that, and from within elected this new leadership team. At the very same time, they issued a challenge, a challenge that these very capable people will live up to, and likely surpass.
A BIG THANKS!
So to, Capt Harry Korrell – President, Leslie Tinker – Secretary, The Reinningers, Ree and Mike – Both serving as treasurers in the past term and Gary Smith – Sgt Sergeant of Arms and all previous leaders; thank you for your unique contributions and tireless efforts. We are forever in your debt for continuing to beat back the progressive attacks on our philosophies and standing firm in defense of our liberties. We are indebted to you and will count on your continued support. From time to time, we will seek your precious advice.
I would like to introduce to you your new leadership team, a fine mix of personalities with views that reflect a wide spectrum. Although we may not always agree on specific issues, we all agree that we must be unified and stand together as Republicans.
David Aughenbaugh – President
Stephan Chan – Vice President
Hillary Pennington – Secretary
Allison Baird – Treasurer
Gary Koloski – Sgt at Arms
Betsy Merena – Member at Large
David Camden – Member at Large
We challenge the single party rule within the great state of Maryland, and we seek to protect the very things that make us identify ourselves as Republicans. Our fight is for liberty. Our fight is for our inalienable rights and our fight is for the welfare and the protection of the people of our district and the American way of life. By taking a personal stake in our surrounding communities, we can make a difference. We need to prove that we are a viable, visible and worthy organization. Only then can we expect, not only our fellow party members, but also the opposition, to take us seriously. We will be a force to be reckoned with.
While it may take some time to break the mold and step outside of our comfort zone, look for this team to create an environment that will focus on the following stems :
I hope that you share the excitement, as we do, and join us in our efforts. In the next few weeks we will undergo multiple changes to our media outlets, please be patient while we do a little housecleaning. I hope to see you soon. Please visit http://patapscovalleygop.org for more information.
