The Archuleta County Republican Women’s meeting, noon to 1:30 p.m., Nov. 8, at Boss Hogg’s Restaurant has the honor to host, as speakers, two VIPs in the Republican Party: Sue Lynch, president of the National Republican Women, and Perry Buck, newly-elected president of Colorado Republican Women.
These women exemplify the “movers and shakers” of the party who are keeping to and advancing the Republican Party ideologies on the local “people” level through education and by serving communities. They can help us to further understand policies and to get effectively involved in our party.
The third VIP Republican Woman who will be present at the meeting is Marilyn Harris, president of our Archuleta County Republican Women’s group and the newly-elected second vice president of the Colorado Republican Women. Marilyn has done an excellent job leading our local group and her efforts were recognized on the state level. This is the highest office someone has attained from ACRW in its history. Also, we are thrilled to have representation from the Western Slope. Needless to say, we will all be extremely supportive of Marilyn’s work on the state level.
Lynch has an extensive, 30-year political background that includes being a former chief of staff and office manager to three members of Congress. In 2009, Lynch received the Bovay Award from the Republican Party of Wisconsin for outstanding party leadership. Since her election in 2010 as NFRW president, she has been accredited with expanding public relations and fund-raising efforts, increasing national media exposure and facilitating increased membership in 33 states. She has also served as a Fox News commentator and served as a trainer in Nigeria for the International Republican Institute.
Buck is a name and face familiar to many Coloradans because of the four years she served as the vice-chair of the State Republican Party. In March 2011, she was elected Colorado Republican State Secretary. Her business expertise is diverse, but has been extensive in the area of facilitating economic development in rural areas.
All are welcome to attend the Nov. 8 meeting to hear these distinguished women speak.
