Report from OC Party Meeting

Orange County's Republican Committee, led by Chairman Scott Baugh, continues to be a well organized political force that effectively propels Republicans into elective office so they can put our ideas into action.

Last night's meeting drew a packed crowd of activists and committeemembers, and was the first since last week's hugely successful Flag Day dinner that drew 1,104 guests.

In my comments to committee, I noted that Chairman Baugh is so successful in extracting financial support from people ($300K for Flag Day), Hillary Clinton might consider him for Director of the IRS (fortunately, she won't have that chance).

Congratulations to Mary Young, Secretary of the committee, on her recent appointment by Governor Schwarzenegger to the OC Fair Board.

Orange County recently returned to an all Republican county Board of Supervisors with the election of Janet Nguyen to the Board in a special election earlier this year. Congratulations to state YR Fed Chairman Matthew Harper, who just joined Supervisor Nguyen's staff.

Republicans interested in promoting education reform and reform-minded candidates should look to Orange County's Education Alliance, which is led by a number of OC Republican activists including Mark Bucher, Treasurer of the OCGOP. The Education Alliance works to educate, train and support candidates for local school boards throughout the county. The group notes on its website that over time, "The Education Alliance began to become the organization committed solely to giving a voice to parents and teachers who support excellence for our children through means other than the liberal, self-serving policies of the teacher union leadership and their allies in the education establishment."

Congratulations to the members of the OC party, Chairman Baugh, and Executive Director George Andrews, for putting Republican ideas into action in so many ways.
