Editor, The News-Gazette:
We are urging all Rockbridge area Republicans to attend the Rockbridge Republican mass meeting this Saturday and vote to reelect Roger Jarrell as chairman.
Roger is a well-qualified, proven servant leader, with substantial successes already for Republicans in our area.
Two years ago, Roger was first elected as chairman and immediately several milestones were achieved: not
only a noticeably organized constituent base, but an increased participation and voter turnout in several critical races. Roger began his tenure as a campaign and congressional staffer for Congressman Bob Goodlatte’s first term and as progressed, serving in positions of increased responsibility within the Republican Party. He truly has a heart for service.
This past November, Roger efficiently organized and rallied Republicans to turn out in large numbers. Republicans enjoyed critical success because of Roger’s vision as chairman: our delegate, Ben Cline, won with a record 71 percent vote, and our commonwealth’s attorney, Chris Billias, by 56 percent.
Please join me in reelecting Roger Jarrell as chairman of our Rockbridge Republican Party.
R. JAMES COOK
