Chairman's Corner: Report of the State Convention

Tuesday, June 06, 2017 10:54 PM | Deleted user

It was an exciting weekend at the State Convention...or at least so I heard. I had the honor of being appointed to the Credentials Committee along with two other great Cobb Republicans, Phil Daniell and Johnell Woody. Our work started at 9:00 AM on Friday and didn't finish until about 11:00 PM. We started back at 7:00 AM on Saturday and closed up business when the Convention ended at 7:00 PM. After handling the credentialing challenges, we became the vote counters along with the Sgt. at Arms Committee members. The vote in each section was certified by both the Credentials Committee member and Sgt. at Arms member assigned to each section. Our totals were certified by Chairs of each committee. 

While I was in constant meetings, Pamela Croxton did a great job leading the Cobb delegation. All of our alternates were moved up.

I was also honored by my fellow county party chairmen who elected me to represent them on the State Executive Committee as the Over 80,000 Caucus Chairman. 

Finally, I would like to thank all of the candidates for all offices who put themselves out there to serve the Party. I would especially like to thank Alex JohnsonMichael McNeely, and Mike Welsh. Each one is a fine individual who I would have been proud and honored to work with. 

Moving on to Karen Handel's runoff, we will be hosting a Debate Watch Party at Cobb HQ on Tuesday, June 6. Doors open at 7:00 PM. See below for more information. 

Finally, you can still get tickets for the Meet-and-Greet and Braves Game with Taiwan's Ambassador to the United States, the Hon. Stanley Kao. Tickets are $100 and include the reception and the game. This is an event not to be missed!

Have a great Republican week!

Yours in Freedom,


Jason Shepherd

Chairman, Cobb GOP
