Cleveland resident Teresa Grant, who sits on the North Carolina Federation of Republican Women’s Board of Directors, recently attended the organization’s winter board meeting at Wrightsville Beach. Grant is also the Johnston County Republican Women’s President and Vice Chair of the Johnston County Republican Party.
During the two-day event Grant met with several elected officials and listened to speeches and presentations including a presentation by Toni Anne Dashiell, author of “Leading for Freedom,” and former House Representative Carolyn Justice spoke to the group Feb. 1.
Dashiell, who also served as President of the Texas Federation of Republican Women, talked to the group about setting clear and definitive goals and developing leadership skills. Justice encouraged more women to get involved and run for office, according to Grant.
The Saturday luncheon speakers were 2nd District Congresswoman Renee Ellmers and Senate leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham President Pro Tempore. They spoke about the upcoming agendas in Washington and Raleigh.
The board of directors passed two resolutions. The first was a resolution urging State Legislators and Governor McCrory to support and promote legislation to require voters to provide photo identification before being allowed to cast a ballot in any election and a resolution urging legislators and Governor McCrory to refuse to set-up the Health Care Insurance Exchange and to refuse funding for this endeavor.
