Roger Jarrell picks up endorsements in Lexington-Rockbridge-Buena Vista

By Lynn R. Mitchell

I have a new post at Bearing Drift that expands on the earlier article about Roger Jarrell, chairman of the Rockingham Area Republican Committee (see Del. Cline endorses Roger Jarrell for Lexington-Rockbridge-Buena Vista GOP chair).

Most notable is the fact that Roger has done everything a Republican chairman is supposed to do — recruit and elect candidates, build the party, regular meetings, expand outreach … there’s no reason to “fire” him from a job he has done so well. Fellow committee members have written about how well he has done; some have had letters to the editor in his defense.

Roger should be reelected at the mass meeting on Saturday, April 2, at 10:00am, at Rockbridge County High School.

This picture was in Rockbridge looking toward the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Driving Dr. Michael and Dr. Pattie

???????????????????????????????By Lynn R. Mitchell

As I thanked my hostess last Thursday evening before hurrying out the door to catch up with my colleagues, she realized three of us were riding together. “Yes,” I laughed, thinking of the 1989 movie “Driving Miss Daisy” starring Jessica Tandy as the aging southern lady and Morgan Freeman as her butler and driver. “I’m driving Doctors Michael and Pattie.”
