I am honored and humbled to have been elected to my first term as Chairman of the Madison County Republican Executive Committee. I look forward to working with you and for you for the next two years to ensure we increase our Republican presence in our local, state and federal governments.
The year is already starting off to show how controversial and contentious issues can be in our state as the legislature and the senate develop and pass new legislation for our state. It is interesting to see how our opponents can twist and fabricate messages to vilify the Republicans and scare voters into believing the sky is falling without allowing citizens the opportunity to fairly evaluate the legislation for themselves. However, I am going to stop right here before I get into a political discussion that will make you stop reading this first message from me.
We are extremely fortunate to have an outstanding team of elected officials from Madison County. They have stepped up to the plate and tackled some very important issues concerning, women’s health, and school accountability. We need to support them and let them know that we appreciate the job they are doing. Conversely, when we disagree with what they are doing, we should tell them and explain why we disagree.
The Republican Party has done very well in Alabama. Alabama is a conservative state. As a party, we espouse conservative values that resonate with our citizens. However, in the last election, not only did we not capture the minority voters, the young voters, or the women voters; we failed to energize our base to get out and the vote for our national and local candidates. During the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) our National Chairman, Reince Priebus, stated that our message was poor and that the party is seen as a group of “angry old men.” This is the message and image we need to change, while still reassuring our conservative base that we are steadfast in our principles and beliefs.
What are we doing in Madison County? We are reaching out to young men and women to become more involved in the Republican Party. We are organizing to reach out to minority voters, to speak with them, and try to show them that our conservative principles mesh very well with their beliefs. Our basic problem in many cases is that we have not tried to go into the minority communities to discuss issues. We must open that discussion!
I want you to join us! We are a party of hard-working men and women who share several basic principles:
The Madison County Republican Executive Committee (MCREC) is an elected committee whose members must run for a district seat in the district where they live. This happens every four years during the years in which the governor of the State of Alabama is elected. We want to hear from you and welcome your comments and concerns.
I urge you to contact us and join us as we move forward into the 2014 election cycle. There are several Republican Clubs that you can join. The clubs are:
I look forward to hearing from you and encourage you to join us, challenge us, and help us find candidates for local, state, and national offices. We need your input and support. Please contact us.
Regards and respects,
John A. Como

Watch this video about Obama’s claim that business were not build by the business owner!
From the America Future Fund, this ad answers the Obama’s criticism that his “you didn’t build that” statement has been taken out of context. So, the America Future Fund put the whole context in this ad, which is arguably worse for Obama.
