Thank you to all those who attended our June monthly meeting. Here’s a quick update on what the Committee discussed.
We were honored to have Virginia’s Republican National Committeeman, Morton Blackwell, explain the nomination process and rules for the upcoming Republican National Convention. He also discussed the history of the rules noting that with the convention less than a month away and with a presumptive nominee, it is too late to change the rules to favor another candidate.
In new business, an “Official Position of the Arlington County Republican Party on 2016 Republican National Convention” was proposed. Read the full policy here. After heated debate, the Committee rejected the proposed policy. Read press coverage from Inside NOVA for a full recap.
The Committee is also leading several initiatives including door knocking efforts with an emphasis on District 8 candidate Charles Hernick and a communications campaign designed to engage the community by emphasizing Republican principles.

Here’s a quick update on last week’s regular monthly meeting. We discussed a variety of important issues, addressed upcoming convention proceedings, and presented volunteer opportunities.
We are looking to raise the Committee’s visibility in the community by distributing mailers, printed door hangers, and fact sheets prior to the election. Be on the lookout for these materials in the coming months.Read more

Official Call for the Party Canvass of the Arlington County Republican Committee of the Republican Party of Virginia
For Immediate Release
Since 2006, the Arlington GOP has voiced concerns with the Columbia Pike Streetcar project. These concerns were not based on politics - our opposition was based on the conviction that The Pike deserves a better transportation plan than a streetcar that costs too much for too little benefits.
The Arlington GOP adopted the following resolutions at the September 24th meeting in response to the Proposed Constitutional Admendment and Bond Referendums on the ballot this November 4th.
Proposed Constitutional Amendment
Question: Shall Section 6-A of Article X (Taxation and Finance) of the Constitution of Virginia be amended to allow the General Assembly to exempt from taxation the real property of the surviving spouse of any member of the armed forces of the United States who was killed in action, where the surviving spouse occupies the real property as his or her principal place of residence and has not remarried?
Arlington GOP Resolution:
The Arlington GOP endorses the proposed Constitutional Amendment and urges a yes vote on November 4th. Exemption from taxes on their homes helps express, in some small part, the immense gratitude of the community and the country for the extraordinary sacrifice of members of the military killed in action. The opportunity to provide relief to spouses of any member of the armed forces of the United States who was killed in action from that burden should be approved by the General Assembly as soon as possible.
