YCRC Call for Mtg. 5 Sept 2013

Greetings, Fellow Republicans,

I hope you all have enjoyed the “Summer Break” and are rested and ready to hit the ground for these last 67 days of campaigning!


Attached and below, please find the Call for the 5 Sept. YCRC meeting.  Please note the venue change to Bruton High School’s auditorium.


t I’ve learned that many Republican Committees throughout our Commonwealth strive to grow their membership by rotating meetings throughout their localities, especially those whose geography stretches lengthy distances so that the same people aren’t always having to travel long distances to every meeting. In other words, they take turns to ease the travel burden as well as to reach possible new members in those areas. Several YCRC members have brought up that they would like some meetings to be nearer to them since York County does stretch across quite a lengthy distance from our southern area next to Hampton & Poquoson all the way up to Williamsburg & James City County. In that effort, for the next few meetings, we will be rotating throughout York County, usually to YCSD schools, to meet in each of our five districts. In addition, meeting in the auditoriums will allow us more space to break into our district/precinct groups for campaign/election/other planning.

If you have any friends who are upper York County residents, please invite them to join us on Sept. 5th at Bruton HS since we’ll be in their neighborhood! A membership form is attached.

BHS: 185 E. Rochambeau Dr., Williamsburg, VA 23188. If you take I-64W towards Williamsburg, take the Camp Perry exit, turn left at the stop sign. (Camp Perry entrance will be to your right.) Turn right at the light onto E. Rochambeau. Bruton HS will be on your left – you’ll want the 2nd driveway into the school as the first one is the BHS exit (one way in, one way out).


t On the Call’s agenda, please note that Bob D’Eramo’s name has been re-added to the list of possible new members for election. Bob was introduced at a 2012 meeting and had his application form mistakenly filed as having been voted in as a member, but he was not as he missed the next meeting. He has been unable to return to a YCRC meeting since Jan. due to recovering from serious injuries in a near-fatal car accident, but he let me know this summer that he’d like to return. He’s now back on the list and will be voted on at the next regular YCRC meeting he attends. We look forward to having Bob join us, again! (Many thanks, again, to Bob for allowing YCRC to place our booth in front of his Ben & Jerry’s shop on Water St. for the Yorktown 4th Celebration!)


t The 6 June minutes will be sent in another email before the 5 Sept. meeting for your review.


t Don’t forget – if you cannot attend the meeting, a non-YCRC member who lives in your York County District can attend in your place as your proxy so you’re not  counted as absent. Since YCRC must follow RPV Party Plan rules, if you miss three (3) consecutive meetings, you resign your membership and lose all voting/speaking privileges. A proxy form is attached for your convenience.


I look forward to seeing you all next Thursday, 5 Sept., at Bruton High School to hear Suzanne Obenshain speak about Mark’s campaign and to organize our grassroots’ Get Out The Vote efforts to help our Republican candidates WIN in November! We only have 67 more days left to work towards VICTORY!!


For God and Country,



Lynda Fairman

Daily Press

McAuliffe opens Newport News campaign office

Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2013


**McAuliffe opened a new Democratic Party office at 1512 27th Street in Newport News, the 39th such operation in the state. And he used the opportunity to talk up his campaign's ground operations, and its ability to conduct massive door-knocking and get-out-the-vote efforts as campaign season heats up.


In a room jam-packed with campaign staffers and current and former Democratic officeholders, he said the party has put together a ground operation that's unparalleled in Virginia for an off-year election, when turnout is typically low and votes are harder to come by.


And McAuliffe said such offices will make the difference when it comes to getting his campaign messages on jobs, economic development and transportation to the voters across the state.


"The ground-game edge is all that matters," he said, after his speech. "It's all about turnout."




It’s time. It’s time to stand up and do what’s needed to “Get Out The Vote” to win this election. The Republican base, supportive Independents, and sympathetic Democrats have to be identified.


It is all about voter turnout.


The democrats know that. The democrats are pulling together to get it done.


The most effective way to identify supporters is the targeted face to face contact of neighborhood canvas.


The second most effective way to identify supporters is targeted telephone canvas.


Volunteering for the Victory Office is the most effective way to participate in voter turnout efforts. The Victory Office works for all the candidates. We have to find our supporters, all of them; and get them to the polls. By the time the vast majority of the voters for a state wide election get to the polls, they have already chosen their candidate. We have to identify our supporters before the election.


The democrats are already in our communities. They are working as a team to get the job done. They don’t know where their candidates stand on the issues. They don’t even know how detrimental their candidates will be for Virginia. They will turn out their voter base to the polls.


The democrats have doubled down in Newport News and opened an office

in the South East community with the intention of turning out every “no information” voter they can find.


No more excuses. No more infighting. No more back seat driving.


It is a proven fact the most effective way to identify our supporters is targeted neighborhood canvass and targeted telephone canvas. It’s time for us to call our supporters to see if they need absentee ballots, but we haven’t identified our supporters yet. We need your help identifying our candidate’s supporters.


Volunteers are hard to come by.


We have contacted everyone who is a member of the Hampton Roads Republican Women’s Club.


We have contacted everyone who is a member of the Newport News Republican City Committee.


We have contacted all volunteers from the 2012 Campaign.


We have contacted all the delegates to the 2013 Convention.



Is your reason for not volunteering more important than having a Democrat in charge of Virginia?


Besides a handful of NNRCC & HRRWC members our regular volunteer base consists of a few high school students and some CNU students who have started to trickle into the office. This isn’t enough. We are spending too much precious time begging Republicans to volunteer to help get Republicans elected. Why aren’t you volunteering? What’s your excuse? Is it more important than having a Democrat in charge of Virginia?


Virginia’s Constitution dictates a balanced budget.


With a democratic Governor we will end up with Obama Care’s Insurance Exchanges. The democrats will spend our surplus rainy day fund. And since we all know that tax cuts are rarely made, taxes will increase.


The effect of losing this election will be felt in the upcoming U.S. Senate race, the next State Senate race, and into the 2016 Presidential race.


Our candidates are:


Ken Cuccinelli for Governor, first Attorney General to fight Obama Care; and he publically “encouraged” the federal government to give us the one hundred million dollars owed to Virginia;


E.W. Jackson for Lt. Governor, a Conservative Hampton Roads Harvard graduate, supports constitutionally limited government;


Mark Obenshain for Attorney General, instrumental in getting the new voter ID law passed in Virginia; and established new mandatory minimums for repeat drug offenders and sexual predators;


Mike Watson for 93rd Delegate, great focus on training our workforce for the jobs that actually exist through expanded Workforce Development;

and developing pro-growth business initiatives;


David Yancey for 94th Delegate, fighting to get I-64 widened; and working for integration of the STEM program into our education system (science, technology, engineering, and math); and


John Bloom for 95th Delegate, conservative engineer from the ship yard; believes in individual liberty and limited government.


The Newport News Victory office is the only Newport News Headquarters working to ensure voter turnout for all the candidates. It’s been proven that targeted neighborhood and telephone canvases are the best way to ensure voter turnout to the polls. Will voter turnout be for the Democratic candidates or our Republican candidates? Well, that depends on you.


On November 5th, 2013 at 7 PM will you be able to say, “I did everything I could to ensure Republican voter turnout to the polls”?


Call Jennifer Krantz, 757-652-0059, to schedule your time at the Newport News Victory office.


Feel free to come to the office at any time.

12715-Q Warwick Blvd.


Our hours are 9AM to 9PM Mon – Sat and 1PM to 7PM Sunday.


Will you help ensure a Republican Victory at the polls? Schedule your time now at the Victory Office.


Come to the office now and be trained by the next Super Saturday, September 7th, 2013. The Super Saturdays are used to test our ability to Get Out The Vote.

This Week's Top Pick

Love surfing? Love the beach? Love live music? Then you're going to have an absolute blast at the 51st Annual Coastal Edge East Coast Surfing Championships happening through August 25. Watch surfing competitions throughout the week as professional and amateur surfers perform their best moves on the waves. On Saturday, August 24, begin the day with an 8K run at 5th Street and Atlantic. Run, walk, or job your way through this Oceanfront course to the finish line. On Sunday, attend the King of the Surf Fitness Challenge followed by a beach party with beer, food and prizes. Listen for live music at the 5th Street Main Stage where you'll hear local acts including Cheap thrills, the Deloreans and Jesse Chong Band. Plus, on Saturday, Silversun Pickups will perform. 

Carolina Inn
This Week's Top Getaway

Thinking of going to the chapel sometime soon? Oh no, not that kind of chapel; we're talking about the one at the edge of the Triangle-North Carolina's Chapel Hill. Start with a visit to the North Carolina Botanical Garden, comprising more than 1,000 acres, including 10 acres of display gardens. If you have a sports enthusiast in your group, they'll love seeing the Carolina Basketball Museum, which chronicles the history of UNC Basketball and includes nearly 500 authentic artifacts, hundreds of photographs and videos of various players, coaches, championships and historic moments. Stock up on gourmet culinary items at Southern Season, offering a beautiful selection of specialty foods, wine and beer, coffee and tea, housewares and more. Finally, revel in the luxurious settings of The Carolina Inn, a well-known icon on the UNC campus that features charming, comfortable and well-appointed guestrooms including seven luxury suites.                  

New York Cheesecake
This Week's Top Recipe

We've all tried cheesecake at some point, and while it's true that we've had some truly delicious cheesecakes, we've never had one quite like this. This recipe for New York Cheesecake creates a creamy smooth, lightly sweet, impossibly rich, cheesecake with just a hint of lemon. Top with your favorite fresh fruit or pie filling--if you can manage to wait that long.                              

This Week's Top Drink

In celebration of August being Virginia Craft Beer month, we suggest going out and buying yourself a tasty brew--and a local one, at that. Need a recommendation? Try Smartmouth Brewing Company's Alter Ego Saison, an effervescent and refreshing beer with fruity notes, a hint of pepper and a dry finish. It's best paired with seafood, especially oysters or mussels, smoked sausages or cured meats. Brewed in the farmhouse style of a Belgian Saison, this brew is a shout-out to the alter ego in each of us.                              

This Week's Giveaway 

Whether you're heading off to a summer picnic, taking a cold dish to a friend's barbecue or just looking for a way to keep your ice cream cold on the way home from the store, this handy Hampton Roads Magazine Insulated Tote Bag is indeed fun and functional in keeping hot foods hot and cold foods cold.
