“Stop the Steal”

“Stop the Steal”

Pro-life activists Scott Myers and Jason Cochran at the “Stop the Steal” rally Saturday

Hundreds of activists gathered at the steps of the Georgia State Capitol Saturday afternoon for the “Stop the Steal” rally protesting the way the presidential election vote count has been handled. Trump supporters expressed their dismay with a trait Establishment Republicans and RINOs have disappointed us with many times before when it’s come to so many issues we’ve found within our grasp to resolve: too often they are more enamored with their power or prestige to take the football all the way into the end zone! We’ve seen it over the last 50 years with a whole variety of issues.

From the fight to save the lives of the pre-born, to the crusade to cut spending and reduce the federal deficit, to issues involving everything from gun rights to school choice Establishment Republicans have too often demonstrated themselves to be more talk than walk. That is exactly why the Georgia Republican Assembly, and its local affiliate organizations such as the Cobb County Republican Assembly, exist—to transform the party to stand for what it claims it actually stands for!

Debbie Fisher Elected as the New Cobb County Republican Assembly President

Debbie Fisher Elected as the New Cobb County Republican Assembly President

The Cobb County Republican Assembly is pleased to announce that Cobb GRA member Debbie Fisher has been elected as the new Cobb County Republican Assembly President. She was nominated by her predecessor Frank Molesky, who is stepping down from the position so that he can devote more time toward his role as the Southeastern Director for the NFRA. The Cobb GRA Board voted on her nomination earlier this week, and we are pleased to have such a hard-working and energetic person as Debbie on the leadership team.

For years Debbie has worked tirelessly with a group of activists in Cobb County to bring attention to some of the concerns going on with the Cobb County Commission. Among other things, she and Jan Barton worked with Alicia Adams to organize grassroots groups to oppose the real estate tax increases the Commission voted on two years ago. She will be working to mobilize the Cobb GRA to help its new endorsed candidate Larry Savage win the Republican Primary for Cobb County Commission Chairman on June 9th.

Larry Savage Wins Cobb GRA Endorsement!

Larry Savage Wins Cobb GRA Endorsement!

Last Friday’s conclusion to the Cobb County Republican Assembly’s Electronic Endorsement Convention saw Larry Savage receive 90.9% of the vote, which more than satisfies the requisite two-thirds majority needed to earn the endorsement of the Cobb GRA. The Marietta Daily Journal reported on the story last night .
Larry brings to the race for Cobb County Commission Chairman an impressive detailed grasp and analysis on the ins and outs of Cobb Commission operations. Many believe he knows how the Commission works better than any of the other candidates. Voters would not likely have to worry with the county manager or the county government bureaucracy bogging him down or escaping his scrutiny. He has extensive experience managing private business organizations where efficiency has been necessary to stay profitable.
Larry Savage for Cobb Commission Chairman
Beyond his experience, Larry is also known as a “straight-shooter,” meaning that he doesn’t say one thing and do another. He tells you exactly what he genuinely believes is true. He’s not afraid to deliver the hard “Savage” truths—even when they’re not easy to hear. He will diagnose the problem and find effective solutions. He is a man of firm small-government and fiscally responsible convictions, having spoken out against Cronyism and other excesses in Cobb for years, even filing lawsuits against some of the worst examples of it. He’s a proven hero in the fight for a healthy constitutional community.

Should Universal Healthcare Be a Right?

Should Universal Healthcare Be a Right?

“I think universal healthcare should be a right!”

I was sitting across the table from one of my 29-year-old clients near the end of the recent healthcare annual enrollment season as I heard these words. With the Democrat Presidential Primaries in full force and candidates such as U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders spouting such lines, it wasn’t hard to imagine where the lad had picked up that idea.

Cobb RAs Support State Rep. Matt Gurtler in Re-Election Fundraiser

Cobb RAs Support State Rep. Matt Gurtler in Re-Election Fundraiser

Several GRA members from around the state, including several Cobb RA members, were pleased to drive out to far northeast Georgia to join with local constituents and help GRA-endorsed State Rep. Matt Gurtler in his first fundraiser of the new election season. Among those from Cobb where founding Cobb Republican Assembly President Michael Davis (not currently serving), Cobb RA Chairman Nathaniel Darnell, and Cobb RA 2nd Vice President Matthew Hardwick. Gurtler has consistently received the highest scores for his voting record as a true pro-American, pro-life, small-government and finally responsible constitutionalist, but he has been targeted by corrupt GA Speaker of the House David Ralston, who is backing an opponent in the primary. Last election Gurtler beat another crony of Ralston’s by 60% of the vote. May others like him increase their numbers in the state legislature.
