Silver Dollar Promise
At the first meeting of this year’s newly elected BCGOP Executive Board, the Chair held up an American Silver Dollar and asked, “What do you see?” “An eagle,” was the answer, to which his response was, “I see Lady Liberty – which one of us is right?”
“And so it is with Buncombe Republicans,” he said. “We see our view so clearly that we sometimes forget other Republicans may have a different angle on things. As elected Party leaders, our job is to stand on the edge of the coin – and bring both sides together.”
