From the chair – At each of our Buncombe County GOP Executive Committee meetings, the chair works to identify and recognize an exceptional BCGOP volunteer with our Silver Eagle Award. All volunteers deserve our appreciation – this one is given to those who go the extra mile and stand out as exceptional contributors.

What are we looking for? A quick list includes a positive approach, constructive engagement, dedication to our principles and platform and a recognition of the importance of practices that bring us together as a Buncombe Republican family.

This month we have recognized someone most of you will recognize – Gail Harding.

Gail has long been a special part of our family and no one – repeat – no one has tried harder – for more years – to give a vibrant voice to conservative values in our community.

A copy of her award is posted below, but we wanted to share the specific language we used to honor Gail. Every single word fits and is well earned –
