Chairman's Corner - The world has shut down, but we aren't

The world has certainly changed a lot since our last weekly newsletter.

The Cobb GOP has faced its own tragedies in the past week as Dowell 01 Precinct Chairman Reid McAlister passed away after a short battle with cancer, the step-father-in-law of former Cobb GOP Vice-Chair Bernard Reynolds passed away from COVID-19 and COPD, former Cobb County Commissioner Scott Chadwick is in the ICU battling COVID-19, Babe Atkins Byrne is also in the hospital on other health issues. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.

However, on a positive note, Sen. Bruce Thompson is out of the hospital and on the mend from COVID-19 and Sen. Kay Kirkpatrick is recovering from it too.

For now, the Cobb GOP office will remain closed.

We are officially cancelling the April breakfast. We will be highlighting the two sponsors who paid to sponsor the April breakfast online as our newsletter sponsor through April.

Despite the bad news, we see Americans do what we do best... come together, united for the common good . Businesses are pitching in to find ways to serve those on the front lines. CEOs are giving up their pay so their workers can continue to get a paycheck, meetings are moving online so work, including the work of the party, can continue.

Our commitment is to keep you informed and provide opportunities to make a difference right from home.

Yours in Freedom,


Jason Shepherd

Chairman, Cobb County Republican Party
