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.
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.
SENATE ANTI-COMMON CORE BILL MUST BE FILED BY 2/27
Despite tremendous pressure from leadership and Common Core proponents,
Senator Greg Evers (R-Pensacola) is courageously considering becoming
the Senate sponsor for HB 25 by Rep. Debbie Mayfield (R- Indian River).
This bill would halt implementation of Common Core, at least until a
number of criteria that have not yet occurred are met. However, he has
some doubts as to whether this bill is still needed after the changes
made by the state board of education on the February 18th.
PRIEBUS: RNC Celebrates Black Republican Trailblazers:
This month, America celebrates Black History Month. Itâ€™s a time to
honor black Americansâ€™ countless contributions to our country, and as
Chairman of the Republican Party, I take this opportunity to remember
the many African Americans who have shaped our Party from its formative
days as a small group of abolitionists through today.
Iâ€™m thinking of trailblazers like the great Frederick Douglass;
Senator Hiram Revels, the first African American to serve in the U.S
Congress; and Senator Blanche Bruce, the first African-American senator
to serve a full term. And Iâ€™m thinking of more recent trailblazers like
former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who grew up in the
segregated South and rose to become Secretary of State; Senator Tim
Scott, the first black senator from the South in over a century; and
T.W. Shannon, the first black speaker of the Oklahoma House of
To better celebrate this rich history, the Republican National
Committee inaugurated a new annual tradition last year: naming and
honoring Black Republican Trailblazers who made great contributions to
our party and country and to their communities. This year, we honor
three remarkable individuals: Dr. Louis W. Sullivan, businessman William
Brooks, and Judge Sara Harper at our annual Trailblazer Awards,
featuring Texas Commissioner of Education Michael Williams as the
Randy Osborne, Chairman of the Marion County REC and a member of the Governorâ€™s Education Standards Task Force spoke at the Feb. meeting of the SCREC.

Public hearings in every County in the State; 2. A fiscal analysis is completed; You may read the entire House Bill HB 25 my clicking the link above.
Our local State Representative is Liz Porter, please call her and ask that she support HB 25. Her District office number is: 386-719-4600. Also call, your State Senator Mr. Charlie Dean (352) 860-5175 and ask that he sponsor a similar bill in the State Senate.
