From the chair – At one our first meetings last year under the new leadership team, the question was raised as to whether we wanted to work toward acquiring a permanent headquarters. The vote was a resounding “no’ with the prevailing view being that we should put our money and effort into something besides real estate.
There are arguments for and against that outcome, but it remains that we have an election before us and need a physical place to hang our hat. To date the best opportunity we’ave had has come from an engaged Republican who was willing to provide a great space for $1,000 including utilities. It was a better-than-fair offer, but our budget cannot absorb even that.
And so, we’re left with the need for a space to hold our signs, campaign material and volunteer activities during the fast approaching intensities of the election season. To the extent we’re all in with plans to cover the polls; develop attractive and creative sample ballots; place signs (candidate signs and a bunch of big banners like the 6×3 example below) and otherwise support our Republican candidates, we’re in need of a reasonably convenient place to hang our hat.
Can you help? We promise to, in turn, to convert your support into targeted action toward Job One – getting Republicans elected in Buncombe County, our Districts and our State.
Please let us know if you have any ideas!
