A message from
Ohio Republican Party
As Political Director
of the Ohio Republican Party, I know that politics can feel a bit like
a man's game, but there is nothing further from the truth. Women have a
vast role and potential in politics if they choose to explore it and
get involved. Our communities are shaped by active citizens willing to
volunteer and put themselves out there regardless of gender. My hope is
that more and more women will become a part of that effort. We have a
distinct voice to bring to the table and it is proven that amazing
things happen when women get actively involved in politics both inside
and outside of office.
Our Party is built on simple ideals: small government, low taxes, and
family values. I spend every day propelling these ideals forward in our
state but I cannot do it alone. Every single person that is willing to
support and share our Party's stances help our state and the nation
stay on the right track. We cannot do it without the work of every
single volunteer who perpetuates our mission. OUr Party is only as
strong as its members and only as loud as its volunteers.
You can truly make a difference. Get involved.
The Ohio Federation of REpublican Women offers a supportive environment
to become an active member of the Party. They encourage Republican
women to get involved, to explore their political education, and to
lend support to organizations like the Ohio Republican Party and our
elected officials. They are crucial to our Party and to the durability
of Republican values. Women can make a difference in politics and the
Ohio Federation of Republican Women is a perfect example of that.

First Satellite Group
was decided to form a satellite group of the Greater Dayton Women's
Republican Club. Being a satellite means that this group need
have an executive committee of its own, but relies upon the established
structure and bylaws of the GDWRC.
The group identifies
itself as conservative women who are seeking the truth, and accordingly
agreed upon the name: "Diogenes Supper Club," suggested by Georgianna
The group will continue to meet at a restaurant
for supper. Spouses, significant others, and interested friends are
cordially invited to attend and to become associate members, if they so

NFRW Agriculture Committee Co-chair
Takes Part in Immigration Reform Push
COLUMBUS, OHIO – Last week U.S. House Speaker John Boehner released his
list of immigration standards. Today, Ohio business and
agriculture leaders reacted to those standards.
“As a Republican legislator in Columbus
and someone who represents an area whose economy depends on
agriculture, it’s very encouraging to see Speaker Boehner and the GOP
caucus moving in the right direction toward serious immigration reform
this year,” said State Representative Terry Boose of Norwalk.
“Principles that address border
security, a market-based visa system, and employment verification are
crucial to reform. The U.S. House GOP caucus deserves credit for
putting us a step closer toward economic competitiveness,” said Shelby
County GOP Chairman and farmer Chris Gibbs of Maplewood.
The standards were released at the end
of last week at the House GOP retreat in Cambridge, MA.
The U.S. Senate passed a comprehensive
immigration reform bill in 2013. However, legislation did not
come for a vote in the House last year.
House leaders have indicated they want
multiple bills that address immigration in a piecemeal approach.
The #iFarmImmigration initiative was
also launched today. February will be #iFarmImmigration month
in Ohio and around the country.
“It’s fantastic to be able to push for
immigration reform via #iFarmImmigration month,” said Vice President of
Ohio Agri-Women and Camden farmer, Rachael Vonderhaar. “The power of
social media is strong, and I’m looking forward to influencing my
networks for essential reform of our broken immigration
system. Our agricultural economy depends on it.”
As part of #iFarmImmigration month,
agriculture leaders will meet with key Members of Congress and
www.iamimmigration.org will feature content about the need for
immigration reform for the agriculture industry
