OUR HISTORY


The oldest Republican Women's club on record was founded in Salt Lake City in the early 1870's. The National Federation of Republican Women was chartered in 1938 in Chicago, Illinois. With Dwight Eisenhower and Congressman Jonas of NC
 running successful campaigns in 1952 the North Carolina Republican Women's club was born. In 1953, the NC club joined with the NFRW to
become the North Carolina Federation of
Republican Women. There were 14 clubs in
the newly chartered NCFRW.
One of those clubs was created when ten
 women joined together to form the Wake
County Republican Women's Club. The three
 women who chartered the Wake County Club were: Helen Lehew, Reva Rothrock, and Beatrice Summers.


The Objectives of this organization are:

To promote and inform the electorate through political education and activity;

To increase the effectiveness of women in the cases of good government, through active political participation;

To foster loyalty to the Republican Party and to promote its principles and candidates in all elections, including non- partisan elections;

To build a two-party system and increase membership in the Republican Party in Wake County, and

To work for the election of the Republican Party's nominees

REPUBLICAN PRINCIPLES


I am a Republican Because...

I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.

I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.

I BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.

I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.

I BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performedby individuals or private organizations, and that the best government is that which governs least.

I BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.

I BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new
and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.

I BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.

FINALLY, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into
 positive and successful principles of government.

 Representative
RENEE ELLMERS

[IMAGE]

Since first being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010, Congresswoman Renee Ellmers has become a leading voice on behalf of her constituents in the second district and the people of North Carolina. Ellmers currently sits on the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee where she focuses on healthcare, oversight, and communications and technology in their respective subcommittees. She is also chairwoman of the Republican Women's Policy Committee (RWPC) - a new caucus comprised of all 19 female Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives. In both of these roles she is working to generate new ideas and innovative ways of promoting conservative principles which will improve our economy and give a new voice to the challenges facing all Americans.

Congresswoman Renee Ellmers is a rising star and leader in the U.S. House of Representatives where she works to promote common sense policies geared toward protecting liberty, protecting the free enterprise system, and limiting the growth of the federal government. As a nurse, small business owner, mother and Member of Congress, she works each and every day to make our nation live up to its creed as the guardian of liberty and foundation for prosperity.

Before her election to Congress, Renee served as a registered nurse for over twenty-one years, initially as a surgical intensive care nurse and then focusing on surgical and wound care patients along with her husband Dr. Brent Ellmers in their General Surgery practice. She never saw herself as a politician, nor dreamed that she would be elected to federal office, but felt the call to action as she saw her industry and life's work coming under attack. In 2009, she and her husband attended a town hall meeting on President Obama’s health care plan and came away distraught over the government's impending takeover of patients' rights and access to health care.

Congresswoman Ellmers has always been a proactive leader in her community, where she instinctively incorporated new solutions and innovative tactics to make people's lives better. Before her election to Congress, Ellmers had been a champion of community affairs by being very active in the Dunn Chamber of Commerce, reaching the level of President-Elect. She has also served on the Dunn Planning Board, a founding Board Member of the Betsy Johnson Hospital Foundation and the Harnett County Nursing Home Committee.

Originally born and raised in Michigan, Congresswoman Ellmers received her nursing degree from Oakland University. Mrs. Ellmers and her husband Brent moved to North Carolina following the birth of their son Ben and have resided in Harnett County ever since.
