The Waynesboro Republicans are men and women of principle. Their goal is to defend the Constitution, with energy, courage and good humor.


LDC Files Federal Lawsuit

On Wednesday, February 25th, the Legislative District Committee for Senate District 24 filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court in Harrisonburg.

Here is the opening paragraph of the legal Complaint.

“This is a suit challenging the legality of Va. Code (1950), 24.2-509 (B), as amended, also known as the Incumbent Protection Act (“the Act”). As set forth herein, the Act infringes upon the defendant’s right of free association secured by the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.”

The Incumbent Protection Act is an unconstitutional law which distorts the election process. It is my firm belief that we will prevail in court and succeed in overturning this pernicious statute.

The Waynesboro Republican Committee has been called the Full Throttle Committee, because we do good things at full speed.

You are cordially invited to join us. We are always looking for people who have pure hearts, strong principles and good minds.

Delegates Day, January 10th

              On Saturday, January 10th, the Republican Committees of Waynesboro, Augusta, Staunton and Highland will host a Breakfast at Mrs. Rowe’s. The purpose of the get-together is to send off our Delegates, as they head to Richmond to attend the General Assembly.

              Representing the Central area of the Shenandoah Valley, are Dickie Bell, Steve Landes and Ben Cline. These three men are among the best Legislators in Virginia. And, if there were more like them across the country, the nation would not have many of the problems that now confront us.

              The January 10th Breakfast will be a fun event, filled with good humor and perhaps a little rowdiness.

              If you interested in attending, call Ken Adams at 942-1880. Hurry. Seating is limited.

Merry Christmas

“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; because he was of the house and lineage of David:

 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”

Convention of States Presentation

014The Waynesboro Republican Committee will sponsor a presentation on the Convention of States at its monthly meeting on Thursday, November 13th. Cindy Barrett, the Vice Chair of the Waynesboro Republicans, will be the guest speaker.

Article 5 of the Constitution authorizes amendments to be proposed by the Congress or by a Convention of States. With Congress deadlocked and opposed to reforming itself, many academics and Constitutional scholars have recommended a Convention of States to propose commonsense amendments such as term limits and a balanced budget.

All those who are interested in correcting the direction of the country are cordially invited to attend the meeting. It will be held on Thursday, November 13th, at the Waynesboro Library, at 7:00 pm. Attendance is free and refreshments will follow the meeting.

For more information, people may call Ken Adams who is the Chairman of the Waynesboro Republicans. Ken’s telephone number is 942-1880.

Letter to John Boehner

BoehnerJohn Boehner, Speaker
House of Representatives
Congress of the United States
Washington, D. C. 20515

Dear Speaker Boehner,

              I am writing to you on behalf of the Waynesboro Virginia Republican Committee. This is a Letter of Concern.

              At the May 8th meeting of the Waynesboro Republican Committee, members expressed great anxiety about your leadership of the Republican caucus in the House. Of specific concern is the bringing of legislation to the Floor of the House that is sought by the Democrats and opposed by the majority of Republicans.

              Some examples of this practice are: the Fiscal Cliff legislation, the Hurricane Sandy Bill, the increase of the Debt Ceiling and the Doc Fix.

              Now, press reports inform the Committee that you have suggested bringing an Amnesty Bill to the Floor of the House so that Democrats and a handful of Republicans can pass it.

              The Waynesboro Republican Committee urges you to represent the Republicans in the House, and Republican voters across the country. It is regretful that we must write such a Letter of Concern to you.


                                                                                      Ken Adams

Representative Robert Goodlatte
Representative Eric Cantor
