Chairwoman’s Notes May 6, 2024

Hello All,

I would like to thank the Precinct Committeepersons for their confidence in my ability to lead and organize the Champaign County GOP.

Over the next few weeks, I will be continuing to make assessments and changes where needed in the organizational structure of the Central Committee within the parameters set forth in the Bylaws.

I realize that some may expect immediate changes. I believe that we need to plot our path carefully so that we can make effective changes while avoiding disruption in already functioning processes. This all begins with getting a proper assessment to start.

Some of the goals I stated during the Convention include:

General Goals

  1. Establish strategic priorities including a vision for the party which includes unifying and recovering members who left over the past few years
  2. Establish a business plan with budget and specific donation goals based on planned events/activities
  3. Recruit key leaders including PCs, Committee chairs and volunteers

Election Operations

  • Goal 85% of PCs recruited, trained, and activated
  • PCs contacting 50% of turn-out Voters Monthly


  • Clearly communicate with our constituents through a weekly email blast
  • Reinstitute Newsletter (I have people who have volunteered to help)
  • Produce high quality sharable content that appeals to persuadable voters 4x per month on three issues: Crime, the economy, and education
  • Goal is 10,000 eyes on produced content monthly

Coalitions/ Community Engagement

  • Form three issues-based coalitions and find a reputable leader for each
  • Coalition members contacting 25% of turnout targets month

Champaign County has been my home for more than 50 years. I will work tirelessly to get it back on track. We need all hands-on deck with a common direction. We need everyone doing what they can. Please reach out to me if you have questions. With a positive attitude and hard work, we can make the progress we need to affect good change.
