Dear Buncombe County,
With the New Year of 2012 here and moving forward we are presented with what could possibly be one of the most important election years in the history of America. We will not stand by and continue to see the conservative values and principles that built America, the values and principles Republicans hold close to our hearts and instill in our children, be trampled on by our current Presidential Administration and Democrat controlled Senate. The time is now it starts here, in Buncombe County, where hard work and self-reliance still live, where these values and principles are still cultivated and nourished within our children. It is time we stand up and recognize that while we are self-reliant, believing that no matter what happens we take care of ourselves and those around us, our community and America is in danger of losing the very things that have made us the strongest, most prosperous, and free nation in the world.
This year our number one priority is to provide Buncombe County with strong and qualified Republican candidates and then provide these candidates with the votes they need to WIN in 2012. This is our path and we will unite Republicans and Independents to accomplish this. We made great progress in 2011 getting the BCGOP organized and prepared for 2012; we must now continue to build upon our success.
In these difficult times we must work together to reverse the direction of the liberal social agenda adopted by our local, state, and federal elected officials. We must instead promote financial accountability, conservative values, and conservative principles at every level of government. To that end, the BCGOP has our marching orders to unite the party with efforts beginning right here in our own backyards. We will have conservative Republicans elected in Buncombe County and aid in defeating President Obama and Gov. Perdue in 2012!
Tighten those belts up; it's going to be one heck of a ride.
Henry Mitchell, Chairman Buncombe County GOP
