Welcome to the Nashville Republican Women’s monthly meeting via NRW Newsletter. While the NRW has not been able to have general membership meetings, the Board Members have been very busy moving forward with setting up events and speakers for future meetings. We are in good shape to begin our meetings in September at Hillwood Country Club. While we are unable to meet, our membership continues to grow. Thanks to our great social media postings, excited board members, and the election campaigns the NRW membership is growing.
Speaking of election campaigns, Hattie Bryant is leading Trump Talk, the platform initiated by the RNC to make phone calls on behalf of President Trump. She will be in touch with those that want to volunteer after the convention in August. I do not need to tell you how important it is to volunteer and campaign for TRUMP/PENCE. This election is by far the most important decision we will ever make in our lives. GET UP, GET OUT, AND GO VOTE!!!!
The U. S. Senate race has blasted off and campaigns are exploding! There are 15 candidates on the Republican ballot. However, Byron Bush, George Flinn, Bill Hagerty, and Manny Sethi seem to be the most popular candidates in the game right now. These men are working tirelessly for our votes. Bill Hagerty and Manny Sethi are getting national attention with endorsements throughout Tennessee as well as nationally. Whatever your choice make your vote count. It’s absolutely necessary that President Trump have the best candidate that will work with him, stand beside him, and support his agenda. When the primary is over, the winning candidate will have the complete support of the NRW.
Also, the NRW supports Tennessee District 20 candidate, Steve Dickerson; Tennessee House of Representatives District 52, Donna Tees (Donna is an NRW member); and Tennessee House of Representatives District 56 Diane Michel Canada. Our support to these candidates is vital.
The Nashville Republican Women’s Executive Board began a campaign last month to boost the morale and SUPPORT THE METRO NASHVILLE POLICE OFFICERS. The board was hoping to receive enough money to make up enough snack bags to distribute them to all 8 precincts (1,000) police officers. We only received enough funds to make up 250 bags, but the bags were very limited in their contents. After much discussion, we decided to redirect our funds and have made a decision to contribute the snack bags to inner city groups and children in need. The decision was to give 100 bags to an inner city ministry that had daycare for children and 150 bags to Rescue Mission for Abused Mothers With Children. The Board has decided to use the money that is left over to design a plaque from the NRW and present it to each MNPD precinct. Designs and suggestions will be accepted. If this decision by the board is not acceptable to you, please contact Karen Porter, NRW Treasurer and we will refund your money.
Final Call to Meeting of election of officers at our September meeting. Hattie Bryant has agreed to accept the position of 2nd V-P, thereby, leaving open the position of Recording Secretary. Nominations will be accepted from the floor. If you are interested and are qualified per the NRW bylaws, please contact me.
