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.

Cobb GRA Helps Mike Boyce Beat Tim Lee for Braves Stadium Deal Debacle

Cobb GRA Helps Mike Boyce Beat Tim Lee for Braves Stadium Deal Debacle

Cobb GRA 1st Vice President Scott McDaniel and Chairman Nathaniel Darnell participated today in the newly elected Cobb County Commission Chairman Mike Boyce‘s swearing in ceremony. Immediately after forming as an official chapter of the Georgia Republican Assembly, the Cobb County Republican Assembly’s first act was to unanimously endorse Mike Boyce over incumbent Tim Lee in the Republican Primary run-off. The Cobb County Republican Assembly (“Cobb GRA”) wanted to send a clear message that they are against the tax increases that Tim Lee pushed through behind the backs of the citizens of Cobb County to advance the “crony capitalist” activity of subsidizing the billionaire owner of the Atlanta Braves with tax-dollars to the tune of $400 million. Our members went door-to-door, made phone calls, put out yard signs, and helped to get out the vote for Mike Boyce.

Chairman Mike Boyce had pledged not to commit the same blunders as his predecessor Tim Lee.

We congratulate Mr. Boyce and will look to see him improve the policy of the Cobb County Commission.
