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.

County Commissioners to Address Suwannee County Republicans
We have some exciting news!  As you know the Suwannee GOP has been very successful in electing Republicans to office since 2010.  We now have a Republican majority on the Board of County Commissioners among our many successful victories!
Part of the process of electing quality government officials is keeping a watchful eye on their progress in the seat in which they have been elected to represent the people.  We have such that opportunity next Thursday, at our monthly Republican Executive Committee meeting! Our four Republican County Commissioners will be speaking at our August 7th meeting in the Live Oak City Hall.  This will be an excellent opportunity to hear the progress our Commissioners have made in growing our community, as well as reigning in wasteful spending.  They will be able to address some issues you either didn't quite understand and answer questions you may have regarding votes they have made.  
In addition to our BoCC, a representative from the Pam Bondi for Attorney General will be joining us and update us on what she has been up to while holding her office and how her re-election campaign is progressing. 
This will prove to be a very informative meeting you won't want to miss! As always,  the meeting will begin at 7:00.  Hope to see you there!!
