The R.I. Republican Strike Force Has Landed
… and they are poised to storm the Campaign 2012 beach!
The formation of the Strike Force was announced last night at Perella’s restaurant in Warren. The volunteer corps (no “e”, Mr. President) will be the boots on the ground in the campaigns of Republican candidates for the General Assembly – to assist with events, sign waves, GOTV calls, press releases. The goal, of course, is to bring some badly needed balance to the RI General Assembly – decades of one party rule having left the state in such … er, admirable condition.
Mark Smiley, Warren GOP chair and a member of the panel said he is excited for the new group and what it will bring to the GOP. “Tonight we created a group of highly motivated volunteers and supporter’s dedicated to the RI GOP General Assembly races. In the past candidates were on their own to build these groups locally. Now they will have a contact where they can request the support that they need to get their message out. This becomes yet another advantage for candidates to step forward and run as a Republican in Rhode Island.”
Anyone intrigued by the idea of joining the RIGOP Strike Force can either call RIGOP headquarters (732-8282) or e-mail Mike Napolitano (email@example.com).
