CONGRATULATIONS GFRW FOR A VERY SUCCESSFUL CONVENTION!
The Georgia Federation of Republican Women (GFRW) wound up a great annual state convention this afternoon here in Cobb County. Congratulations to the outgoing state president, Rose Wing, for a fantastic three-day convention and her great leadership over the past two years! I had the distinct honor as the Cobb GOP Chairman to welcome the convention to our county and introduce the recently elected Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, John Padgett, who was one of the convention's keynote speakers.
Before ending this afternoon, the convention body elected their new GFRW leadership for 2014 and 2015. Leading the women of Georgia into the all important elections of 2014 will be the state organization's newly elected president, Ruby Robinson, of the Golden Isles Republican Women's club.
Also elected to the Executive Board of the GFRW to serve with Ruby for the two-year term starting in January 2014 are:
- First Vice President - Laurie Padgett of the Chattahoochee Republican Women's Club
- Second Vice President - Bobbie Frantz of the North DeKalb Republican Women
- Third Vice President - Linda Clary-Umberger of the Foothillls Republican Women's Club
- Secretary: Varie Rustin of the Middle Georgia Republican Women's Club
- Treasurer: Billie Dendy of the Cobb County Republican Women's Club
- Asst. Treasurer: Lydia Hallmark of the Floyd County Republican Women's Club
At this time I congratulate each and everyone of the new officers of the Georgia Federation of Republican Women. The party looks forward to working with you to ensure the great state of Georgia remains red for generations to come.
The last official business of the convention was to elect the GFRW Woman of the Year. Defeating two other outstanding nominees for this highly prestigious award was a lady everyone loves and who has been actively involved in Republican elections for the past 56 years, Marjean Birt, president of the Chattahoochee Republican Womens' Club.
Thank you ladies for coming to Cobb County with your 2013 Convention. It was our honor and privilege to host you!
