|Greetings Fellow Republicans,|
|August caucus and Santa Claus town convention are behind us. Congratulations to Aaron Benton on being unanimously elected by a caucus of the Precinct Committeemen as the new at-large member of the Spencer County Council. The first ever town convention in Spencer County was held in Santa Claus to select two candidates to represent the Republican Party on the November ballot for Santa Claus town board with Mike Johannes and Sherrill Clark coming through with the victory. Thanks to Jeff Lindsey, who served as convention chairman, for all his hard work to ensure the convention was conducted fairly and according to the law.
The Perry-Spencer Picnic was a huge success with a visit from Governor Pence, Attorney General Greg Zoeller, and the entire 2014 Republican ticket along with hundreds of party faithful. Thank you so much to the Mulzer family for their continued support of this important event!
Once again, Republicans dominated the Dale Fall Festival parade with entries from Kelly Corne For Prosecutor, Jim McDurmon For Sheriff, Jim Seiler For Commissioner, Autumn Winkler For Auditor, Robert Fuller For Coroner, Matt Knepper For County Council, Mike Roos For County Council, Suzanne Crouch For State Auditor, Mark Messmer For State Senate, Ron Bacon For State Representative, and Larry Bucshon for U.S. Congress. Thanks to all who came out to ride the float or walk for the candidates. Special thanks to Gary Adams for pulling our float.
We also set up a first class booth at the Dale Fall Festival with great representation of all our candidates. Thanks to Marlene Bowen with the Suzanne Crouch For State Auditor campaign for her efforts in helping out in the booth.
Thanks to all the candidates and elected officials for working in the booth during the three day event. Congratulations to Clay Beckner of Chrisney on winning the $250 gift card to Holiday Foods. Thanks to Jerriann and John Burroughs, David Gogel, Jim and Kathy McDurmon, Mike Roos, Marlene Bowen, Jim and Shannon Seiler, Robert Fuller and Autumn Winkler for helping set up or take down the booth.
