Welcome Winter Gala

Friends –

Thank you to all who attended and supported our Welcome Winter Gala with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie!  It was a fantastic event with over 650 people attending.  There were many glowingly positive comments about the Gala including:


  • “I haven’t felt this much positive energy at a Republican event in a long time!”

  • “In all the years I have been coming to these events, I have never seen so many Republicans smiling!”

  • “The Governor’s comments were the perfect message, at the perfect time, for our party and our state.”

  • “What a great start for the new Vermont Republican Party!”

Indeed, the atmosphere was electric and Governor Christie’s remarks to the standing room only crowd were positive, encouraging, and forward looking.  Our mission now is to maintain — and continue to grow — that energy and excitement as we move our party and our state forward.

In my remarks Wednesday night, I described the event as “…the first chapter in the book we are writing about the rebirth of the Vermont Republican Party.”  I am writing today to encourage you to join us as we continue writing this book and through it, change the course of history for our state.

One of the key messages in Governor Christie’s remarks was the importance of finding, promoting, and supporting the best candidates for office.  Good candidates carry our message forward, help to define our vision for Vermont and have what it takes to win elections.  To support these candidates we need your continued support.  Here is how you can help:

We need to help fund candidates that can spread our positive message of affordability and economic security AND break the lopsided super-majority in Vermont.  You can help by making a donation today to the Vermont Republican Party.  Whether it is $10, $20, $50 or more, any amount helps.  You can do that right now by connecting to our website here:
