I have served as a Republican Precinct Chair for a total of 7 years. My late wife, Jan Woody, served for 20 years. I have offered my services to many candidates on a volunteer capacity in an advisory role. I was a Republican elected judge for 12 ½ years. I have served as president of two Republican clubs, and have been actively involved for about 30 years. I have always striven to be a servant-leader from my days when I flew 160 combat missions in Southeast Asia, to now.
I would like to continue my efforts to promote unity in the Republican Party. To do this, I would continue my message that it is not necessary to agree 100% with every position of the Party to be a good Republican. Too often, a certain element in our Party has conveyed the message that if one does not agree and support 100% of the platform, one is not worthy to be called a Republican. This is self-destructive and does not win elections.
Continue to communicate and be pro-active. Provide leadership, as I did from my Air Force days in Vietnam to now. Walk my precinct, as before, distributing literature on an equal basis.
The main issue is one of message. In communicating the message of the Republican Party, I hope to follow the words of President Reagan: “What do I call someone who agrees with me 75% of the time? A friend and ally.” We cannot afford to exclude anyone who passes any particular litmus test. Our Party is one of freedom, not conformity. We must do the hard work of persuasion, not condemnation.
