The Young Republicans met at Puleo’s Grill 110 Cedar Lane, for their monthly meeting. This meeting was set out to be a huge crowd with Dr. Mark Green, but when Washington calls, one cannot make excuses. When the President calls one must go.
Fortunately, the Young Republicans lucked out when they were able to land Andrew Ogles, who is the Director of Americans For Prosperity for Tennessee. Ogles spoke on the national political scene. Ogles was involved with Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign in 2012 eventually becoming AFP director.
It was a smallish group, so the conversation was more about the proposed hike in the gas tax and who was for it and who was against it. It was a quick meeting but they did have around 3 new guests who said they would be back next month.
This group is a growing, but it’s hard to grow when targeting a age group of people who don’t seem to understand the importance of knowing what is going on in our local government. If you are between the ages of 18-40, I invite you to come out and see for yourself, and hear what is going on. The next meeting will be April 18th at 6p.m. at Puleo’s Grill. The speaker has not been announced as of yet, but an insider has informed me this is a meeting you do not want to miss! It’s a HUGE name. So mark it down on your calendar and I will see you there.
