The Sixth Congressional District Republican Committee (CD6) held its required third quarter meeting on Thursday evening, September 2nd, so that its members could be free during the 45 days of election to help win statewide and House of Delegate races. Winning these races will take more than the efforts of just the members of CD6. It will take the engagement and effort of every conservative in the district. The manpower (and womanpower) needs of monitoring ballot integrity alone are massive. We cannot ensure an honest election without your involvement. Contact your unit chair immediately to see how you can help.
Of the 32 voting members, 23 were present and seven others sent proxies. Among those who attended were the new Harrisonburg chair, Pat Haden, and the incoming College Republican representative Julianna McGrath (JMU).
We moved through the agenda items fairly quickly. We were made aware of several large donations made to the Committee for the purpose of party building and helping elect our statewide candidates as well as enough Delegates to swing the balance of power in Richmond.
We discussed the dues that the units are required by the Bylaws to pay to CD6, and we set them at the very low rate that was used last year.
Then Herman Wells of Waynesboro appraised us of a couple of specific methods our trained poll watchers will be using to help keep the balloting process honest and fair. Morgan McCown presented a report on how Critical Race Theory is being forced into Virginia’s schools. [More on that in a minute.] And Jack Collins presented a report on the CD6 website, which will be updated in the near future.
The Committee approved a motion by Vice Chairman Ken Adams to reimburse Treasurer Donna Moser for the cost of the surety bond she has been paying out of her own pocket. The surety bond is intended to protect the Committee from any damages that might be caused by financial mistakes – unintended or otherwise – made by the Committee’s treasurer.
The Resolutions Committee presented four resolutions that were approved by the Committee. One resolution called for the General Assembly to order a full forensic investigation of Virginia’s 2020 General Election and to conduct a thorough review of each subsequent general election. The second resolution called on the U.S. government to cease deficit spending, to reorganize the Executive Branch to reduce inefficiency, to abolish the Federal Reserve, to reduce foreign debt, and to require our allies to pay their fair share into our common defense.
The third resolution required the use of common sense in the matter of transgender issues including not allowing biological males to participate in female sports and keeping our schools and our military out of involvement in transgender issues.
The fourth resolution is, among other things, a commendation of teachers and members of local school boards, boards of supervisors, city councils, and the General Assembly who have taken a stand against the 1619 Project, the Model Policies program, and the teaching of Critical Race Theory.
This brings us back to the comments of Morgan McCown, a mother of four who served a stint in the Marine Corp and is a former teacher. She is currently running for a seat on the Rockbridge County School Board. Her report was impressive, informative, and well researched. The liberals have stopped calling it Critical Race Theory because they know we care about it. The euphemisms now being used are “culturally relevant instruction,” “culturally responsive teaching,” and “cultural competency” among other inventions of the state Department of Education. Mrs. McCown suggests that every conservative should google “VDOE Equity Initiative” and get an eyeful of what Virginia’s DOE is trying to cram down our children’s throats.
As Chairman Massoud said at the end of Mrs. McCown’s report, “Our enemies have no shame and no logic. They know it, and they don’t care. We can’t reason with them. Our only choice is to vote them out of office.”
