Patriot Greetings CCRC Members and Friends!
With the 2023 Election Season really starting to accelerate and heat up, it is time for me to once again issue this official call to our next monthly meeting of the Campbell County Republican Committee on Tuesday evening, August 22, 2023, at 7 PM EDT in the Board of Supervisors meeting room in Rustburg, Virginia. Please see the attached agenda for the specific street address and order of business for the meeting. Note that the draft minutes from our July 25 meeting are also attached for your review.
Friends, with little more than a month before early voting kicks in, it’s time for the pedal to hit the metal!!!
Please don’t let the number of items on the agenda cause undue alarm! While we will be covering a lot of ground, most of the agenda consists of brief updates concerning the progress that we are making on the many fronts: our first ever Candidate Workshop, arrival and availability of our 4×4 Ticket Signs and Fliers, an update on our social media and internet platforms, and more… All of these items will move briskly, as will any updates from our candidates and other dignitaries (note the three-minute limit for each as specified on the agenda). I will even do my best to limit my monthly Chairman’s Report to headlines and bullet points (except where a little more detail is absolutely necessary).
Before closing, I do need to share information about a few events that will take place before our CCRC meeting next Tuesday:
· Our Campbell County Electoral Board Chairman (and CCRC member), Randall Wenger reminds us that the next Electoral Board meeting will be at 10 AM at the Registrar’s Office. The meeting is open to the public, except for a brief Executive Session at the end. Note that this may be the first meeting for new Republican board member, Don Wooldridge, who has just been appointed to serve out Anne Smith’s remaining term.
· The Virginia Fair Elections Coalition will be conducting an Election Integrity Summit in Richmond this Saturday, August 19. Please see the attached MS-Word file for more information and links for even more information.
In addition, the Virginia Institute for Public Policy and the Virginia Fair Elections Coalition will be presenting live online training sessions for Poll Watchers and Election Officers every Tuesday at 7 PM in the weeks ahead. This training will be presented by our friend, Dr. Clara Belle Wheeler, who always does a tremendous job. I plan to participate in multiple sessions and urge our patriots to participate in at least one. Please see the attached MS-Word file for more information and links.
I look forward to seeing all of you at what promises to be a celebratory and challenging CCRC meeting next Tuesday evening.
