Message from NCGOP chair Robin HayesPosted: January 21, 2011
The energy and enthusiasm for our Republican candidates made 2010 a historic year. Due to our massive grassroots effort, Republicans took back the North Carolina Legislature for the first time since 1898, Renee Ellmers knocked off a seven-term incumbent and Senator Burr’s win was the largest margin of victory for a Republican Senator’s re-election in our state’s history.
But we must be humble in these gains. To be successful in 2012 and beyond, we must expand our grassroots organization to ensure our elected officials in our country and our state stand for the same conservative principles that we as Republicans share.
Today, I am pleased to announce the formation of the Chairman’s Transition Advisory Board. The Transition Advisory Board is charged with exploring, proposing and developing strategies for the North Carolina Republican Party to better reach all North Carolina voters through effective grassroots, communications and fundraising programs.
If you have an idea to how the North Carolina Republican Party can more effectively communicate with voters, please email your ideas to Transition. I will highlight some of your suggestions on our Facebook and Twitter pages in the near future.
I was overwhelmed by the support I received at the Chairman’s election last Saturday and am humbled to be your new Chairman. As your Chairman, I will be a responsible steward, providing moral and ethical leadership and will never waver in standing up for the principles that make our Republican Party great.
But be sure, I work for you and hope you will take the time to share your thoughts and ideas with the Chairman’s Transition Advisory Board so we can expand on our successes of 2010.
I look forward to working for you and with you towards victory in 2012 and beyond.
Chairman, North Carolina Republican Party
