Dear Fort Bend County Republicans and Friends,
Over the course of the past four years, it is has been my privilege to serve Republicans in Fort Bend County as the Party Chairman. Since assuming this position on November 27th, 2007, I have been greatly honored by the tremendous privilege to serve in this capacity alongside dedicated Fort Bend County Republicans and Elected Officials.
After a time of evaluating twists and turns of life, I have decided now is the time to pursue other interests and opportunities unavailable to me while committed to the office of FBCGOP Chairman. It is time for me to “move on” and let another assume this leadership role in our county prior to the next primary election in March 2012 and general election in November 2012.
In my tenure as the Chairman, it has been a joy to dedicate the vast majority of my time leading the Party and being a strong advocate for our conservative Republican principles and values. The Party officers and committee chairs have shared my desire to be open and fair, with full accountability and transparency. I intend to continue to wholeheartedly serve and support (and advise if asked) those who share conservative Republican values by standing-up – showing-up – and speaking-up!
There have been many who have admirably served alongside me who share a strong commitment to the success of our Party. Officers and Committee Chairs of the Party, Precinct Chairs, elected officials, and the wonderful hardworking Republican volunteers key to electing Republicans are all to be highly commended. My deep appreciation and sincere thanks to each! We have enjoyed many great successes over the years, including great election results, Lincoln-Reagan Dinners and fiscal growth and accountability. We significantly supported candidates, operated a very active GOP Election Headquarters, vastly improved communications and a host of Party functions and activities. It’s been a great four years for the FBCGOP!
It is with a thankful and appreciative heart for having had the opportunity to serve, that I announce my resignation as the Chairman of the Republican Party of Fort Bend County, effective at midnight August 3, 2011. According to Texas Election Laws, the Fort Bend County Republican Executive Committee must be called to a special meeting within 20 days of my resignation for the sole purpose of electing my successor. Secretary Debra Ross will be sending this call later today for a Special Executive Committee Meeting on August 16, 2011. Details will be in the call.
With great respect and admiration for our Party and all of you,
U.S. Navy (Ret.)
