Welcome to the Kenton County Republican Women’s Club
“Nana, how much longer will President Obama be our president?” asked my 8 year old granddaughter.
“Three more years,” I replied.
“That’s a long time,” she lamented.
What followed was a mini civics lesson consisting of an explanation of the balance of powers, the election process, and the importance of being involved.
On the national, state and local level, much can be done. And we must be engaged. It is simply not productive to wring our hands as we watch the news. As my husband, a retired state senator says…”Worry is like a rocking chair, it takes a lot of energy, but it gets you nowhere.” Despite our very busy lives, we must make it a priority to make the future better for our children and our children’s children.
I am excited that with the help of my wonderful board and our membership we can make a positive difference in our country and our local community by being informed and active.
We are extremely fortunate to have many selfless and hard working elected officials in our Northern Kentucky area. They need our support. So I encourage you if you have not yet done so to become a member of the KCRWC. By doing so you have the opportunity to discuss issues directly with officials that attend our meetings. You have the opportunity to plug into campaigns. You become a member of the State and National Federations. And you will make friends with a wonderful group of people.
I look forward to serving the next term as your president and hope to see this wonderful club having even a greater impact on our community.
