“Jason and I first met back in the Spring of 2008, as a small group of young conservatives were meeting to re-establish the Cobb County Young Republicans.
Jason was the current state chair of the Georgia Young Republicans, and as a Cobb County conservative, had a strong interest in seeing that a lasting group could be established that would help the under 40 Republican crowd become more involved in the Party. The CCYR charter was re-established, and still stands as one of the most influential YR groups in the state of Georgia.
Jason’s leadership as Georgia YR Chair was instrumental in preparing all of the Young Republican groups in the state for the grassroots work that has become so important in electing Republicans to office from the national to local levels. I also had the honor of running my first campaign for the Cobb County School Board during the same election that Jason was seeking to unseat the Democrat incumbent in the State House of Representatives in 2010. The district had a very Democratic advantage, but Jason’s campaign made it more competitive than it should have been.
I have had the great privilege of being an elected official who rose from the grassroots of the Republican Party here in Cobb County, so I believe that Jason Shepherd brings the necessary grassroots and campaign knowledge that is needed to lead the Cobb County Republican Party past the challenges that were exposed in the 2016 election.
He has my endorsement, my support, and my prayers. I hope that all conservatives in Cobb County join me in the support of Jason and his team, as they work with all Republicans to make Cobb County Red Again!”
