Greetings everyone!! Don’t forget that the ACRC Official Business meeting and Breakfast is tomorrow Saturday, April 11, 2015!! Please be sure to include this important meeting in your weekend schedule!!  John Whitbeck, Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia will be our guest speaker.  John will give us the latest news on RPV and speak to us about the grassroots challenge.  It will be such a privilege to have Chairman Whitbeck visit with us.  The Official Call is below.

The Republican Party of Virginia, in an attempt to become financially solvent is asking each of the State’s Committees to donate money to that end. They are requesting $350.00 from ACRC to be part of that endeavor.  It is so important that The Republican Party of Virginia be financially healthy, so that Committees can depend on it for vital resources, including voter databases. So bring your checkbooks with you on Saturday to the Breakfast so you can write a contribution to our Committee specifically to be given to RPV!

The Albemarle Charlottesville Republican Women’s League is hosting a lite supper with Goochland County, Board of Supervisor Ken Peterson as their speaker on April 16, 2015.  The event flyer with all the details can be found below!!

The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors is in the process of determining the tax rate for 2016.  Now is the time to be engaged and let your voice be heard.  Visit the Albemarle County Website for all the planned meetings and ways of contacting our Supervisors.  I also recommend that you sign up on the County Website to receive County updates by email!!  That way you won’t miss a thing!!

Finally, if you have not yet renewed your 2015 dues, please do so.  The Committee depends on your membership dues to conduct its day to day business. We can’t do it without your support!!

Looking forward to seeing you all at the Breakfast on Saturday!!  Spread the word! With John Whitbeck as our speaker this is a good chance to invite your friends and neighbors to try us out!!

Always looking right,
Cindi Burket
Chair, ACRC

According to the Washington Post, Governor McAuliffe’s coming 20 vetoes “will send a clear signal about McAuliffe’s agenda and his ideology as a liberal governor.”  McAuliffe is proposing to veto:

Dear Friend,
Hearing from those living and working in Virginia’s Fifth District has always been, and continues to be, my greatest resource as I serve you. Your input has brought to light problems created by some of the big government programs coming out of Washington.
Last year, a constituent contacted our office to express concern over the fact that he was unable to delete his profile from HealthCare.gov. Even though he decided not to sign up for healthcare coverage through the federal online marketplace, he was unable to remove his profile from the site. When he called the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), he was told that his personal information simply could not be removed.

Dear Conservatives,

Greetings everyone!! Here is the latest from the Albemarle County Republican Committee.

Last weekend’s ACRC Breakfast officially marked the beginning of the 2015 Election cycle.  Many of our incumbent candidates were there to inform us of current issues they are working on  and to update us on their campaigns. As you can see we are going to be very busy, and we will need your help!!  So, let us know how you would like to volunteer!!

American’s For Prosperity is hosting an event for everyone who supports economic freedom on Tuesday, March 31, 2015.  Radio talk show host, Rob Schilling will be their featured speaker.  This will be a great event!! Details are below!

The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors will be hosting a series of community budget meetings this month.  It is vital that as many of us as possible attend these meetings.  We need to continue to voice our concerns about a tax increase.  Details to all these meetings are also below.

If you are looking for a way to make a difference in our community at large, consider volunteering to be on an Albemarle County Board or Commission.  This is a great way to get involved, meet new people and learn the way our local government works.  Details here!!

The decision to have a Mass Meeting to elect our local candidates is in the “Call” document which also provides all the details necessary to run for office.  The “CALL” is posted on the website.   Our search committee for candidates for Albemarle positions continues its work.  The Clerk of Court is one of those positions and an article has been written to highlight this important job.  This article is also posted on this website.  If you have any suggestions for
candidates or would like to run yourself for any local office please contact me.

Membership renewal letters have been sent out!  Please renew as soon as you can because ACRC can not fulfill it’s functions without your support. Base dues are only $25 so please consider renewing your membership today.  A membership form available here.

So much going on!!  Join us for it all!!

Always looking right,

Cindi Burket
Chair, ACRC
