“This is just a part of the Shelby County Republican Party’s initiative to involve younger persons in the political process,” said Executive Chairman Julie Ehemann. “From sponsoring youth at this year’s Lincoln Day Dinner, to re-invigorating the Shelby County Young Republicans, to organizing this trip, the Shelby County Republican Party is reaching out to younger voters.
“We are confident we can defeat stereotypes that hinder the success of the Republican Party in many communities. We will build on the common ground starting with our beliefs in freedom, family, limited government, lower taxes, and love of our Country. We hope to share our belief that there still is an American Dream and that our Republican policies will help lift people up and help them to attain that Dream,” she said.
