New Kent County Republican Committee Named Unit of the Year for 2018

At the RPV Advance in Norfolk, VA the New Kent County Republican Committee (NKCRC) was named Unit of the Year. Six units were nominated, three of which were from the 1st District. The RPV Executive Committee reviewed the nominations and voted for the best unit.

For the past four years the New Kent County Republican Committee (NKCRC) has grown from 20 to 200 members. The NKCRC’s continuous grassroots growth has led to more enthusiasm among Republicans in New Kent County, an increase in volunteers, a robust election day operation, and solid support for Republican candidates.

In 2018 the NKCRC distinguished itself with improved internal organization/management, a robust get out the vote initiative, and a highly organized ground game for the 2018 elections.

The Executive Committee was particularly impressed with the fact that the NKCRC established a new Young Republicans Club at New Kent County High School, which now has 60 members. With help from the NKCRC, 3 members attended the Turning Point Student Action Summit Dec 19-22 in West Palm Beach.

Congratulations to Chairman Daniel and the NKCRC for all of their hard work!

Congratulations to Chris Henderson, Chairman of the James City County Republican Committee (JCCRC), who was named 2017 Chairman of the Year by the RPV!

The JCCRC is split between the 1st and 2nd Districts; Chris was nominated by the Chairman of the 2nd Congressional District. The 2nd District Chairman noted that Chris became Chairman of the JCCRC last year and immediately began an aggressive fundraising campaign. In 10 months he raised $18,000. He also was instrumental in converting a bank into a Victory Center for the 2016 election just outside Williamsburg, which served as a focal point for campaign activity throughout the area. His leadership has increased attendance at unit meetings by at least 20%, and he has significantly improved the unit’s cohesion and focus since becoming Chairman. Congratulations, Chris!
