GOP News Notes October 16, 2016


Viewing of Hillary’s America:

The DVD, The Secret History of the Democratic Party will be  shown at GOP Headquarters Monday- Friday at 2 and 6PM.  It is about 2 hours long. The DVD will also be shown Saturdays at 2PM.  There are a few copies of the DVD available to check out for 2 days.  The DVD is based on a book by the same name written by Dinesh D’Souza. Everyone is welcome to come to HQ and watch the DVD during the weeks before the election.  Our doors are open!

About the Amendments:

There will be two proposed amendments to the Virginia Constitution on the November 8th ballot. The Montgomery County GOP is encouraging a yes vote for both amendments.  The first amendment has to do with Right to Work.  Virginia has a Right to Work law in the Virginia Code.  This amendment will put the Right to Work law into the Virginia Constitution.  The logic being that if the law is in the constitution it will be more difficult to change.
The second amendment has to do with property tax exemptions. This amendment allows localities the right to exempt property that belongs to surviving spouses of any law enforcement officer, firefighter or any other first responder killed in the line of duty.

Election Poll Workers Needed

A big election effort is with poll workers who talk with voters as they approach the polls on election day.  Each of the twenty-three Precincts in Montgomery county are manned from 6AM -7PM by at least two people.  Many workers are needed.  After being recruited workers are trained on what to do and how to do it.  Mostly, it amounts to being friendly and appreciative of the people’s effort to vote. Handouts including sample ballots are distributed. The co-chairs are Mark Hoover, who’s cell phone is 540-230-7920 and can be reached at: and Glenn Cochran at: Glenn’s cell phone is 540-250-3560.  Call today!
