Chairman Message

 Welcome to our website!

 It has been my privilege to have served as your State Committeewoman for the last four years.  In that time, we have been able to grow our local party and learn many exciting things about the legislative process as well as our local government. Our REC has managed to change the face of the political process in Suwannee County with a super majority on the county commission, a new State Attorney, a new Congressman, as well as holding the seats of our State Representative and State Senator.  This was achieved by all of the hard work and dedication to our local party, but first and foremost because of a love of country and its principles.

Although I do realize we have a large task ahead of us, I do believe through prayer, dedication and education on the issues, we will persevere.  I look forward to serving as the Chairman of the Suwannee County R.E.C. and ask that you keep me in your prayers as we all forge ahead in our endeavor to restore our great nation.
