We did it!  Thank You, Thank You
I wanted to take this opportunity to express to each of you that helped with the election.  We could have done better in Montgomery County, but we took the Presidency and kept our wonderful Congressman, Morgan Griffith.
I remember back to our Mass Meeting in March of this year.  I spoke about “Volunteerism” and how much we needed for as many people as possible to get involved.  I said, “If you were to wake up on Wednesday morning after the election and found out that we have a Democratic President, the first thing you will say to yourself would be, why didn’t I help more?”  Well, you did.
Every time a need arose, we had volunteers.  You are all so great!
Now we can be assured of a Conservative Supreme Court, a larger and better Military, trade reforms, an actual reduction of federal regulations, an eye to the budget imbalance, and more.  You can look at all these issues and look at our Republican Creed.  It’s all there.  And you rose to this challenge!
I salute you all.  You deserve the credit.  I could list all the names of so many that stood up and said, “I can do that”.  But I would need much more space.  Our Sub-Committees all responded.  I am such a lucky person, in that, I have met so many new friends.  I hope to meet more.
And now, on to next year.  We will be having a Christmas Party. It would be great, even if you can only stay for a short time.
We will have our next monthly luncheon in January at Custom Catering.
I hope everyone can come.
Lastly, Go Trump!
Bob Dickenson, Chairman, Montgomery County GOP
Victory Party
All Republicans are invited to a Victory Party on Sunday, November 20. Come any time between  3:00-5:00PM  and celebrate our sweet victories with fellow Republicans !!!  Finger food and drinks will be available. The party is at the Republican Headquarters, 1655 Roanoke Street (End of mall behind Long John Silvers).  Trump/ Pence signs will be available!  Precinct Captains be sure and call your poll greeters and invite them to the victory party,
Christmas Party
Our Christmas Party will be Sunday, December 18th, at Nick Rush’s house, from 3:00 to 5:00. Nick’s address is 820 Hillcrest Dr.  Hillcrest Dr is the first right off of Depot St after passing Radford St going toward I-81.   After getting on Hillcrest it is a few blocks distance to Nick’s house on the left.  Everyone is invited!
Get Ready for Another Big Election Season
The elections of 2017 are going to again be important.  Besides the three state races, Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General there are three local House of Delegate races, Nick Rush of the 7th District, Greg Habeeb of the 8th District and Joseph Yost of the 12th District and several important local elections in the county and towns.  As you may know the state elections each has multiple candidates so there will be need for studied selection of the best representative in voting for the March primary.  The Montgomery County District Supervisors have three races; Annette Perkins of District A, Gary Creed of District C and Todd King of District D. Gary Creed who normally votes conservative will not be up for reelection so we need to have a candidate for this position.  The Montgomery County School Board has three races; Gunin Kiran of District A, James Lyons of District C and Jamie Bond of District D.  For the Town of Blacksburg, besides the Mayor Ron Rordam Council Members; Susan Anderson, Krisha Chachra and Cecile Newcomb are up for election.   The town of Christiansburg has the Mayor, D Michael Barber and Council Members; R Cord Hall, Steve Huppert and Bradford J “Brad” Stipes up for election.
