Chairman's Corner - Making a difference in a COVID world

Monday, April 27, 2020 1:22 PM | Anonymous

I have a first cousin and first cousin-in-law who are health care workers. Ashlea Stumpert, the daughter of former Cobb GOP Chairman Scott Johnson is a RN and her husband is a police officer. Cobb GOP member and HD 40 Secretary Fun Fong is an ER doctor who was recently highlighted by U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler for his work combating COVID-19. Throughout our GOP community, many of our members are actively engaged in fighting COVID-19, and we cannot thank them enough.

However, it's not just the front line workers who we owe a measure of gratitude to. Our Cobb GOP members are also going the extra mile to help during this crisis.

Recently, Cobb GOP Deputy General Counsel Neera Bahl and member Juan Violantes , co-owner of Giovanni's Italian Restaurant in Powder Springs, surprised workers at the Kennestone Hospital, Cardiology Department by delivering 50 lunches.

Each week, Georgia Federation of Republican Women President and Cobb GOP 1st Vice-Chair Kim Sherk volunteers with "Backpack Blessings" at Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church to make sure kids who are learning at home will have enough to eat. She has also been recording videos reading children's books to be played at story time in local schools. I've even recorded one myself.

These are only a couple of examples of the dozens I see on social media or hear about talking with others. Cobb County Republicans are quietly making a difference for our community each and every day of this crisis. In the articles below, how have ways you can help too.

The Cobb County Republican Party especially thanks those on the front lines during this crisis who put their health, safety, and welfare on the line daily to support us.

We have posted a video on facebook to show our support . It has already been shared 38 times and reached over 2,500 people. Please take a moment to watch, and share.
