A Word from the Chairman

Election_2018.jpg A Word from the Chairman:

     2018 has all the early indications of being an exciting election year. Control of the US Senate at the national level is a key issue, a crowded governor’s race, and several competitive local elections here in Elbert County. I am impressed by the quality of our Republican candidates. We have posted information on each of them on the ECR website, this includes our first announced candidate for county commissioner District 2. The key qualities that I’m looking for in any candidate are their experience, education, demonstrated commitment to Republican values, understanding of key issues, and plan if elected. You can meet each of the Republican candidates running for Elbert County office at the Elbert County Republican Women sponsored Meet the Republican Candidate Forum planned for 7:00pm, Thursday, March 15, at Legacy Academy. Shown below are important dates of the 2018 election and opportunities for you to get connected and involved. Hopefully, we will see you along the way as we volunteer and work together to advance the principles of limited, efficient, constitutional government.
