Welcome to the world of elections and campaigns 2020! How many times have we heard “This is the most important election of our lifetime”? Well, NRW members, it’s here and it’s now! There is no way you have not been made aware of the violence and destruction of this country by the Democrats and far left. I’m calling on each and every one of you to get out the vote. It is not time to sit this one out and continue to whine and complain. It is a time to make our voices heard. THE SILENT MAJORITY HAS BEEN AWAKENED. We have a real clear candidate in President Trump and HE MUST WIN!!! If you saw his speech and rally in Tulsa, you know he has come out swinging and fighting for each of us. He is bold, he is strong, and his love for America and You is evident in all of his actions and speech. Are you sitting back or are you on the frontline supporting him? The RNC Convention has been moved to Jacksonville. I do not have details at this time. When they are announced we will make sure you are notified.
We must take back the US House and pick up seats in the US Senate. We have a choice to keep Tennessee RED. Bill Hagerty, Manny Sethi, Byron Bush and George Flinn (*see complete candidate list below listed on the ballot) are working hard for our votes. Early voting starts July 17. These fine candidates are working tirelessly covering the state. Contact your friends and neighbors and tell them to vote.
Stacy is working hard on getting a great lineup of speakers for our meetings beginning on September 9 at Hillwood Country Club. You will not be disappointed. The NRW Executive Board has been meeting on virtual Zoom and continue planning for the future of NRW. We all look forward to seeing each other again and talking about one of our favorite subjects…..Republican politics. The Board is also discussing and acting on a project to support the Nashville Metro Police Officers. We will inform you as soon as plans are final. Your help will be needed.
Once again, I want to remind you of a 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 qualified per the NRW bylaws, please contact me.
The NRW Executive Board worked very hard on The NRW ACT NOW project promoting the Metro Council members vote against the 34% property tax increase. Letters, emails, and phone calls were made by all members of the Board and many of you. While many participated, and it was greatly appreciated, there is much room for improvement in our voting record. Metro Councilman at Large Steve Glover has worked tirelessly on another plan and he is our conservative voice which I know you appreciate as much as the NRW Executive Board members do. Let’s continue to support and promote Steve’s voice in Nashville.
We must not forget Celebrating 100 years of Women’s Suffrage 1920-2020. On August 18, 1920 Tennessee became the 36th and final state needed to ratify the 19th Amendment. We continue this year to also honor Senator Marsha Blackburn as she is the first woman Republican US Senator from Tennessee and was appointed to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Unfortunately, plans to celebrate this event in Nashville have had to be cancelled.
Amy works very hard to keep you informed! Let’s let her know how much she is appreciated by opening your emails, viewing her text messages, following the NRW on Facebook, and promoting our exciting Club and events. The NRW growth depends on YOU.
