Editor, The News-Gazette:
An important Rockbridge Republican mass meeting is being held Saturday, April 2, at Rockbridge County High School. Doors will open for registration at 9 a.m. and the doors will be closed at 10. Pre-registration is encouraged. Call 464-1073 for a registration form.
Two years ago, current chairman Roger Jarrell defeated incumbent Cher McCoy 96 votes to her 34 votes. With his expertise as an attorney and knowledge of political procedures, Roger has been an outstanding leader of the Rockbridge Republicans.
We recommend the re-election of Roger Jarrell as chairman of the Rockbridge Republican Party. Roger has been involved in politics with Republicans since the 1980s. After graduation from Virginia Military Institute, he earned his juris doctor from Washington and Lee University School of Law. Roger is a supporter of Del. Ben Cline and has worked with and for our Congressman Bob Goodlatte. He is well-qualified to continue as our Rockbridge Republican Chairman.
