Letter from National Committeeman Alec PoitevintPosted by chris on Aug 13, 2012
THANK YOU! If no other message is remembered from this e-mail, let it be an expression of gratitude to all of you, my fellow Georgia Republicans. You have honored me many times, and I deeply appreciate it. Four times, you elected me as your State Party Chairman. Another five times, you selected me to serve as National Committeeman, representing you on the Republican National Committee (RNC). Through the years, we have worked hard together and been part of achieving great victories.
When we started together these many years ago, being a Georgia Republican defined being a minority. Now, we can say with pride that every statewide office is held by a Republican, the State House and State Senate are controlled by Republicans, both U.S. Senators are Republican, as is an overwhelming majority of the Congressional Delegation. Only with continued dedication can we hope to enjoy success in the future. I know I can depend on you, and you on me.
We are only days away from gathering in Tampa for the National Convention. It has been a privilege to be the Chairman of the Committee on Arrangements (COA)—the group responsible for officially conducting this tremendous event. When the Convention gavels to a close on Thursday night, August 30, it will mark the end of my service on the Republican National Committee.
Those of you who know me best, realize that it is unlikely that I will retire to the sidelines and sit in a rocking chair to observe the political scene. You can count on me to continue to do anything and everything to contribute to a great Romney-Ryan victory in November.
If you’re among those who will be in Tampa, I look forward to seeing you here and doing my part to make sure that you, and everyone else from across America who come to the Convention, enjoy every minute. After all, that’s part of the job. To those who will be observing from back home, know you are an important part of our Convention without Walls.
So, I end by saying what I said at the start. Thank you for your friendship and your support. Now, it’s on to November!
