“The State Executive Committeewoman is an important job,” said Hunter. “She has an ex-officio position on all the County Parties in District 17, and is responsible for being the liaison between the State and County Parties. I plan on attending as many county events in my district as possible, so I can take your concerns to the State Party. Additionally, the State Executive Committee votes for the State Party Chairman or Woman, adopts rules to promote the success of the Republican Party, establishes policies that guide and direct the county parties and works with the Legislature to promote issues of concern to you either as a committee or as an individual. I will represent all Counties and Republican groups in a fair and unbiased manner. I am against Common Core and the Federal effort to undermine States Rights. I ask for your vote in the Republican Primary.”
