Congratulations to MCREC's Volunteers of the Year

Tom Brantley (left) and Emery Deason, MCREC's Volunteers of the Year for 2014.  

Each year the officers of the Montgomery County Republican Executive Committee (MCREC) recognize the volunteer or volunteers whose efforts made the biggest impact during the previous year.  During last week's MCREC meeting, County Chairman Pat Wilson presented the 2014 Volunteer of the Year Award to Tom Brantley and Emery Deason.

Tom and Emery served the MCREC tirelessly during 2014 (and 2012 and 2013 as well), volunteering at the headquarters, helping out at events, and generally making themselves useful wherever they go.

Tom and Emery, we thank you for your efforts and appreciate the the example you set for the rest of us!

Guest Post: Obama's Response to the French is Telling

by Rick Segrest


This speaks volumes regarding our current administration.

Our leaders are passive, weak and, by appearances, are not watching out for us. The grassroots of our country needs to ask why - through our elected leaders. Eric Holder did not join world leaders?!?  We should be calling our elected local and state leaders to be our voice.  Anyone who watched that video of the terrorist murdering that police woman should shudder to think who we have protecting and fully supporting our law enforcement and military. We have a voice locally that needs to be heard loud and clear.  Why can't we speak with groups and organizations about joining us as we approach a very important election?God Bless this country and those who support our belief system.
