This morning at the Cobb County GOP Breakfast, a third candidate added her name to the race for Cobb County GOP Chair; lifelong resident of Marietta, GA, a business leader and recent Cobb RA member, Salleigh Grubbs.

Salleigh Grubbs

Salleigh joins a race that has two Republican women running for Chair, Pam Alayon and Dr. Lisa Adkins. Salleigh’s motivation to join the race came after witnessing the frustrating outcomes of the 2020 general election where Cobb County lost every seat and majority except for the School Board. Like many conservative patriots, Salleigh has expressed her fear for the direction that our Country and County is headed and Saturday morning she stated that we have a trust problem in the Republican Party. During her announcement Salleigh said, “What defines us are our principles, our Conservative principles,” which reiterates a message the Cobb RA has promoted for years!

According to her speech and press release, for the past 30 years Salleigh has proven her leadership skills as a successful business executive in the Chemical Coating Industry. She has been involved in Civic organizations and Politics throughout her adult life as a citizen advocate who defends our Constitution, promotes Republican values and the principles of smaller government, lower taxes and education. Salleigh’s civic involvement includes the following activities: current Treasurer of the Chemical Coaters Association of Georgia and the past president, former Voice of Democracy Judge for the Veterans of Foreign Wars and past member of the Marietta Middle School SGT. Since the 2020 Election Salleigh has been working every day to restore Republican principles, defend freedom and fight for election integrity in her county and state.

Salleigh announced that she was proud to have received several endorsements from notable politicos. The admired conservative former Cobb County Board of Commissioner Chairman, Bill Byrne said of her: “Cobb County is in dire need for strong and conservative party leadership to address the needs of the Republican Party and it is with a great deal of pleasure to support and endorse Salleigh Grubbs to lead the party into the future.”

Conservative Radio talk show host, John Fredrick’s told his listeners that Salleigh is doing exactly what needs to be done all across America; she is the perfect person that is needed to make the necessary changes in the Cobb County Republican Party.  In a press release he also had this to say; “More conservative America First agenda citizens like Salleigh Grubbs need to step up and run for office – whether it is for the Republican Party, or local, state and national offices!” You can read more about Salleigh on her website https://rallywithsalleigh.com/.

Two Announce Candidacy for Cobb County GOP Chair

Two Announce Candidacy for Cobb County GOP Chair

Lisa Adkins

This morning at the Cobb GOP Headquarters for the monthly breakfast, two activists announced their intention to run for Cobb GOP Chairman to replace Jason Shepherd as his term is about to end mid-April: Pam Alayon and Lisa Adkins. Both have been active in the Cobb County Republican Party for years. Dr. Lisa Adkins has been a leading volunteer in the Cobb YRs for years, and currently serves as the Vice Chair of the 11th District GOP organization. She made a soft announcement several days ago on social media, and publicly presented her candidacy at the conclusion of today’s breakfast meeting. Lisa is running on a motto to “modernize and revitalize” the Cobb Republican Party.

Prior to that during the breakfast this morning, activist Jeff Souther (who formerly served on the Executive Committee for the Cobb RAs) sponsored the announcement from Pam Alayon that she would also be running. Pam has been serving as the Vice Chair of Membership in the Cobb County Republican Party under Jason Shepherd, and serves on the Diversity Board of the National Federation of Republican Women. Pam announced her proposed slate of executive officers that would be campaigning with her:

  1. Chairman – Pamela Alayon
  2. First Vice-Chair – Jean Young
  3. Vice-Chair of Party and Grassroots Development – Dr. Fun Fong
  4. Vice-Chair of Communications and Information – Jeff Souther
  5. Vice-Chair of Membership – Mario Russo
  6. Secretary – Catherine Floam
  7. Treasurer – Dave Tolka
Pam Alayon

Former Georgia Republican Party Chair Sue Everhart from Cobb spoke expressing her endorsement of Pam Alayon as well. Alayon announced that her candidacy represents a more collaborative leadership style than many other chairs have applied in the past. She indicated that her slate of executive officers would be empowered to lead the organization more, that she would not be micro-managing or top heavy as has been done in the past, but would equip experts in different fields and delegate to them.

Lisa Adkins said her candidacy would seek to bring groups together and return us to our roots and values. Both candidates spoke about reaching out to segments in the community that have been overlooked in the past.

Speculation continues as to whether any third person would be announcing his or her intentions to join this race.

In the past, the Cobb County Republican Assembly has hosted candidate forums to give candidates in local races an opportunity to represent themselves to the activists who would be voting in the county convention to elect them. Expect the Cobb RAs to announce a similar forum in the weeks ahead. After forums, members of the Cobb RAs have the opportunity to endorse a candidate by a two-thirds majority, if they so choose.
