Women Helping Women
Out first Columbus County Republican Women meeting was a huge success. There is a lot of enthusiasm and willingness to make an impact on our county. We will have a presence. We will be seen in our red attire at meetings, festivals, fairs, county meetings, and other gatherings all around the county.
Our mission statement is: The mission of the Columbus County Republican Women Group is to positively impact our county, state, and nation, while strengthening the Columbus County Republican Party through recruiting, educating, training, supporting, and electing Republicans.
Our initial focus will being with education and training. What better topic to start with than elections criteria, specifically the NC Photo ID Symposium on August 29th at the Dempsy Herring Building in Whiteville. For more information, visit http://columbusco.org/Departments/Board-of-Elections. Given all the issues with the 2018 elections, every single voter needs to be aware what to expect in the 2020 elections.
The Columbus County Republican Women will be partnering with programs throughout the county with the purpose of assisting those in need. We want to help organizations like Families First, the Humane Society, Senior Citizens Centers, Community CPR, Hospice House, to name a few. One way to do this is to advertise and ask for citizens to bring canned goods, clothes, old furniture, whatever the need is at the time, to our meetings and gatherings.
The Columbus County Republican Women will also be recruiting female candidates to run for county positions. I don’t think anyone will argue with the findings from experts that show women make better bosses. Plus, we are better listeners and learners. They had to be talking about Republican women. Women are known to be excellent multi-taskers. We are better problem solvers than most of the males in society and especially the political arena. Just take a look at Governor Roy Cooper’s record.
It has been said that men argue that women make decisions using emotions and feelings. Case in point in favor of Republican Women. Go back to earlier this year during the sheriff race hearings. The two Republican Board of Elections member’s decisions were based solely on evidence. It was crystal clear that the protester Gloria Smith and her lawyers failed to prove her case. However, the three Democrat Board of Elections members voted using their beliefs, opinions, and feelings. I made a statement during our meeting that what happened to our Sheriff Jody Greene should never ever be allowed to happen again. There is a major difference between Democratic and Republican beliefs.
We are sick and tired of the same old politics in Columbus County where a few people seem to run everything. We are done with our voices not being heard. We have a lot to say and we are going to speak out with dignity, poise, and grace. We have a lot to do and we will do it with knowledge, unity, and determination.
We need you. Columbus County needs you.
