Chairman Message

Welcome to our website!

It has been and continues to be an honor to serve as your Chairman of the Republican Party of Suwannee County.   We revitalized our local party in January 2009 and have been making our presence known ever since.  Since 2009, 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 Federal, State and Local Governent.  In Suwannee County, Republicans now enjoy a majority on the County Commission, and now have a Republican State Attorney, Congressman, U.S. Senator, Governor and his Cabinet Members, as well as holding the seats of our State Representative and State Senator – all held by hard working Republicans.  This was achieved by all of the hard work and dedication of our local party who possess a deep love of country, its principles and a devotion to preserving our Constitution.
I hope to see 2015 become a year of growth for the Suwannee GOP, as we analyze the things that have proven to be successful and tweak the things that could use a little improvement.  We hope that we will be able to flip our county Voter Registration to make us a Red County.  Most people in Suwannee County do not even realize that they are truly Republican, as they have been voting Republican for years.  My challenge to all Suwannee Countians is to check out the platforms for all of the major political parties and see which one best represents you, as a voter.
Next, make sure to either go register to vote under that party affiliation or if you are already registered to vote, make sure you are voting the way your party affiliation represents you as voting.Although we enjoyed a landslide victory in 2014, we are not even close to weeding out the rot we are dealing with right now.  I do realize we have a large task ahead of us, but I still do believe through prayer, dedication and education on the issues, we will persevere.  I look forward to serving another term as 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.
