Highlights from the 5th District Republican Committee Meeting on March 11

  • Creation of a Budget Committee, composed of Lynn Tucker, Tinker Burkhardt, Joanne Holden, Ed Yensho, & Will Pace.

Guest Speaker

Congressman Tom Garrett gave us a recap of what is going on up in D.C.  Among many issues he touched on, Congressman Garrett explained how scaling back the onerous federal regulations has really jump-started the economy.  Congressman Garrett also detailed the problems with the proposed American Care Act a.k.a Obamacare-lite or Ryancare.  We are very appreciative of our Congressman's fine work in D.C.

Our own 5th District Committee's YouTube Channel

The 5th District Committee has launched our own YouTube Channel!  Please check us out; and then subscribe to us.  And subscribe to our Congressman's channel and the WhiteHouse channel.  Watch the videos & up-vote them, share, make nice comments, etc.  There are some very exciting things happening in D.C. now, and you don't want to miss out on the great news.  Watch and spread the word how liberty is making a comeback thanks to President Donald Trump and Congressman Tom Garrett, along with other Republicans.  Our work is not over just because we got our representatives elected: It's very important that we stay in touch with our Congressman as he represents us in D.C.

But our new YouTube Channel is not just to promote what's going on in D.C.; it's also for us to share what's going on in our own Committees too.  With a SmartPhone and the YouTube app - everybody can get in on the action.  Let's all utilize this popular, free social media to promote our Republican values - locally, statewide and nationally.
