Hello Fellow DeKalb County Republicans, It was an honor to join Trump Appointee and best-selling author Nick Adams and legendary actor Dennis Quaid along with U.S. Congressman Pat Fallon (R-TX4), Hair Salon Owner turned Activist Shelly Luther and 200 Patriots from across the USA at the FLAG Gala 2021. The Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and providing high-quality civics education that informs students and families about the greatness of America and the power of the American Dream. The evening’s gala celebrated FLAG’s many accomplishments to include the distribution of over 1,000,000 million copies of the U.S. Constitution to K-12 students, a tremendous social media presence as well their next chapter is to launch the website.

Dennis Quaid was the evening’s keynote speaker and will portray President Ronald Reagan in a movie called “Reagan” which will be released in 2022. In his keynote speech, Dennis reminded us of the parallels of President Ronald Reagan’s presidency and how we can overcome today’s challenges because “we live in the greatest country in the world.” This inspired me to read some of President Reagan’s speeches on my plane ride home and the parallels of his presidency to what we are facing today is truly profound. While President Reagan was one of the most prolific and charismatic presidents of all time, these words from his 1980 Republican National Convention Acceptance Speech stood out to me considering the pandemic and our recovery:

“Work and family are at the center of our lives, the foundation of our dignity as a free people. When we deprive people of what they have earned, or take away their jobs, we destroy their dignity and undermine their families. We cannot support our families unless there are jobs; and we cannot have jobs unless people have both money to invest and the faith to invest it.”

In other developments, I am pleased to share that there is much progress on restoring FITness – Faith, Integrity and Trust in our elections. Our search to appoint two Republicans to the DeKalb Board of Registrations and Elections is underway with applications are due TODAY – May 24 at 11:59 PM EST and the appointments will be announced at our next DeKalb GOP County Committee Meeting which will be held on June 10, 2021. On Friday afternoon, Superior Court Judge Brian Amero issued an order to have Fulton County unseal its’ 145,000 absentee ballots for a fraud examination and forensic audit. So stay tuned!

I also hope that you will mark your calendars to join us at the special Juneteenth DeKalb GOP Breakfast to be held on June 19th from 9:00 am – 10:30 am at Wild Wings Café. We will be welcoming 2nd District Congressional Candidate Vivian Childs who will speaking about the significance of Freedom Day and highlighting her new book “In His Hand.”

Best Regards,

Marci McCarth
DeKalb County Chairman
