News from the Chair, Peter Falkenberg Brown
Apr 18, 2020
Dear Gray Republicans,
Who would have predicted the events of the last few weeks? Well... the Chinese Communist Party could have told the world all about the new CCP Virus, but that's another story.
The shutdown seems to have saved many lives, which is a good thing, but as many people have said, we don't want the cure to be worse than the disease. Here's hoping that Gov. Mills will ease things open, in a common sense fashion: both businesses and recreational venues. People need to be able to sit in the sun and look at the ocean, in my opinion. It heals the soul and helps the body.
We also don't want America to slide into totalitarianism. Most of us have read about Little Tyrants all over the country who seem to enjoy their temporary power over people. Here's an article by one of my favorite columnists, Stella Morabito, writing at The Federalist, on the topic "Pandemic Panic Has Magnified The Worst Impulses Of The Power-Hungry Elite."
But... back to news about the Gray Republican Committee:
~ April's General Meeting has been cancelled, because of the CCP Virus.
~ Note that the Maine Republican Convention will be postponed. More news to come.
~ We had planned a large, public speech event for May 20th, but it may be postponed until June (stay tuned). The event will be on the topic "Stop Open Borders & 2020 Democrats ~ Say No to Poverty, Crime, & Tyranny," and will feature Rep. Larry Lockman as our Keynote Speaker, as well as Border Patrol agent Mark Phillips as our second speaker. See this link for more info:

~ We are planning two more public speech events in 2020: one in August and one in October. Check our website for more info as the time gets closer.
~ We'll be posting information soon about the Republican candidates running for office in districts that include Gray.
~ We're always in need of funds. Please donate, if you can, at our donation page:
Be safe, be well, and let's work together to defend freedom in America and around the world!
