Staff

Fifth District Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-Watauga) discussed the push for national health care during a visit to Alleghany County last Thursday, Aug. 6. Foxx was the featured speaker at a Republican Party cookout that was held that evening at the Lions Club Pavilion.

Other party officials also attended, including 5th District Chairman Dan Bartlett and Vice Chair Celeste Stanley, Surry County commissioner Paul Johnson, who hopes to run for Don East’s N.C. Senate seat in 2010, and 90th District N.C. House Rep. Sarah Stevens’ (R-Mount Airy) husband Edmond Johnson. Those in attendance were told that the N.C. Legislature was still in session, making Stevens and East unable to attend.

Alleghany GOP Update, from Joe Jones.

October 6, 2008
Dear Friends
 
Mark your calendars!  The next monthly meeting of the Alleghany County Republican Party is this Thursday, October 9, 6:00 p.m., at the Pines Restaurant in Sparta.  It’s the last meeting before the election and time to get ENERGIZED!
 
By the way, there was a mis-print in the Alleghany News this week on the date of the meeting so please help spread the word that it is on the 9th. Thanks.
 
The Election Headquarters is up and running.  There has been a lot of traffic and interest in the election. There is no question that Sara and Sarah (Sara Palin and Sarah Stevens) have truly energized the base here in Alleghany County. We’ll call it the SARA(H) FACTOR!  We still need volunteers to to help staff the headquarters to make calls, hand out literature and signs, and answer questions.  So, if your schedule permits, please stop in and sign up to volunteer.
 
Joe Jones
Secretary
