Mass Meeting Cancellation

To Whom it May Concern,

I, Curt Lilly, Chairman of the Augusta County Republican Committee, in accordance with the calls I issued on April 2, 2017,  hereby CANCEL the Mass Meetings that were to be held  at the Government Center on May 18, 2017 for the purpose of nominating a Republican candidate for the office of County Supervisor for the Pastures, Middle River, and Beverly Manor magisterial districts.  The committee only received filings for Terry Kelley (Beverly Manor) and Gerald Garber (Middle River).  Since there was no district with more than one candidate, the mass meeting is not needed and is cancelled.

I look forward to seeing you at our regular May Committee meeting.
 

Thank you,

Curt

Repeal Obamacare

Repeal Obamacare

Augusta County Republican Committee
Approved by ACRC Executive Committee 02/21/17
Approved by ACRC 02/21/17

WHEREAS: The presidential election strongly supported repealing the Affordable
Care Act (Obamacare) with President Trump winning 2,600 to 500 State counties

194, a 33 of 50 state majority of Republican governorships and an electoral college
majority vote of 306 to 232,

WHEREAS: The ACA has devolved into an unfair, unaffordable, unwieldy, and
unsustainable monstrosity that restricts choice and competition, undermines the
doctor-patient relationship, and stifles hiring and economic growth,
WHEREAS: The Affordable Care Act continues to collapse upon itself and as
exchanges diminish, premiums become unaffordable,

WHEREAS: The constituents of Augusta County voted 71.99% for President Trump
and his platform of repeal,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) be repealed
immediately.
