Thank You Fairfax GOP!

Friends:

I am honored and humbled to have been elected to be Chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee today. I thank everyone for their support, and pledge my every effort to serving you as we work to elect our candidates in 2012 and build our party for the future.

I entered this race with only one goal, to do whatever I can do to help keep our country on the right path, the path envisioned by our founders, the path of liberty, and freedom and prosperity for all. Together we can make a difference, and I thank you all for this opportunity.

A special thanks to Matt Ames, who ran a great race, and who is a true gentleman. Together we pledged to run a campaign that served to unite the party, and he was true to his word. I am so pleased that he has agreed to serve as the FCRC 1st Vice Chairman.

I also want to thank all my supporters, my campaign staff, my Campaign Manager Nancy McWhorter, and of course my family for sticking by me over these last months, and for working so hard to reach our shared goal. Congratulations also to the great FCRC Staff who put on such a motivating and professional convention today. Great job!

Finally a very special thank you to Anthony Bedell. Anthony’s dedication and skill as FCRC Chairman have given us a party that is motivated, organized, and ready to win in 2012 and beyond. Thank you Anthony for all you have done for Fairfax County, and for your mentorship and friendship over these last four years.

Please join us at the FCRC “Chairman’s Election Happy Hour” on March 28th. Details are at www.fairfaxgop.com. I look forward to seeing you there and to working with you in the months and years to come.

Through Growth Comes Victory!

Sincerely,

Jay McConville
