ICYMI: September Monthly Meeting

Thank you to everyone who attended last month’s monthly meeting! Welcome to newcomers looking to join Arlington GOP!
 
Thanks to those who provided brief updates on various campaigns including aides for the Trump-Pence Campaign, Ed Gillespie’s gubernatorial campaign, John Adams for attorney general, and the 8th Congressional District candidate Charles Hernick. 
 
Arlington GOP discussed the need for local Republicans to continue to be engaged in election activities. We have been successful in gathering volunteers for door knocks and other ground game activities, and the Arlington GOP ran successful booths at Clarendon Day and the Arlington County Fair.
 
Communications Committee: If anyone in interested in joining the Arlington GOP’s Communications Committee, please reply to this email. Representatives from the Young Republicans (YRs) and the Arlington Republican Women’s Committee (ARWC) will participate to leverage outreach and communications.
 
Constitutional Amendments and Bond Issues: Arlington GOP reviewed the proposed constitutional amendments and bond issues that will be on the November ballot.  The full text of the proposed amendments and the bond issues is on the Arlington County website. Largely thanks to County Board member John Vihstadt with support from Arlington GOP, the summaries are more detailed than in years past.
 
Arlington GOP voted to support both two constitutional amendments, Right to Work and Property Tax Exemption, and also voted to allow the executive committee to draft language for the Arlington GOP sample ballot on the four bond questions, Parks & Recreation (NO vote), Arlington Public Schools (YES vote), Community Infrastructure (Took No Position), and Metro & Transportation (NO vote).
 
We look forward to seeing you at the next Arlington GOP meeting on Wednesday, October 19 at the National Rural Electric Cooperative "NRECA" Conference Center (4301 Wilson Blvd., Arlington; first floor).
