Hello Fellow Republicans!

 

What an exciting time it is to be out supporting Republican Candidates, engaging our friends and neighbors in the political process, and to just be involved in Williamson County making this the best county to live and work!

 

Thank you to each of you that ran for office in the Primary. We are thankful for your commitment to our community. For those we will see on the ballots in May and November, congratulations! We are here to support your efforts in keeping Williamson County a strong conservative place to call home.

 

To help WCRW in our efforts to support our local candidates, Lisa Messana has stepped up to Chair our Campaign Activities. Please thank her for her willingness to help coordinate our efforts! If you have an event or campaign need, please contact her directly at campaign@wilcorw.org

 

Also joining our Board, Mary Anne Bose has volunteered to take the lead as our Military Liaison and Caring for America Chair.  This year our Caring for America efforts will be focused on supporting the Wounded Warrior Project.   Please thank Mary Anne for her commitment to veterans in our community and also agreeing to lead WCRW efforts. 

 

As a reminder, we have started "tweeting!" Please find us @wilcorw on Twitter. We will tweet events we think you may want to know about as well as try to re-tweet your events as we see them in our feed. Feel free to tag us in your tweets as well. We are still on Facebook and of course our website remains a great resource. We hope to provide information, opportunities, and resources to help you get involved in the process of supporting Republican leaders in Williamson County.

 

Thank you for all you do!

 

 

Sincerely,

Marci Revelle

President
