I was pretty distraught after working on the 2008 presidential and senatorial campaign in Colorado for two weeks of no sleep and then a quick defeat. But you can’t keep me away from politics and campaigning too long. As soon as the summer hit I headed down to the ol’ south in Richmond and cast my vote for Governor McDonnell, Ken Cuncinelli and Bill Bolling. The speeches highlighted my fiscal and political views and once they won the votes and GOP support I was back on top with HOPE for a new Governor of Virginia.
I remember meeting Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen at a meet and great this summer in Old Town, Alexandria. He is from that area and they were down to earth. Maureen spoke about their long marriage, military service, hope for a fiscally sound VA, jobs and a great transportation plan (which is key in NOVA). I knew from then on I would talk to locals about voting for Bob. I even persuaded democratic friends who posted yard signs for him and talked some Independent friends into voting for him.
I credit the W for Bob as Governor of Virginia to the hard work of loyal grass roots activists and a good campaign team. I also know that the Obama administration is losing likability with their “hope” and trust that seems to be dwindling away and that helped us too. But I do not give them all the credit.
Standing at the Victory party in NOVA at Pat Troy’s pub was a great night. The votes came in fast and the GOP was ahead in high margins. We need to keep this up and as liberal as the Northern Virginias are I see the ray of hope and plan on rolling up my sleeves and putting in more hard work to keep the ball rolling.
I will be attending the Advance in Williamsburg the weekend of December 4th, where the New Media Committee I am on will sit down with GOP leaders of VA and strategize more ways to win and have our message be heard. After the pain stricken loss of last fall, my wounds are starting to heal after seeing the VA GOP get it together and use the internet as tool. My word to the liberals out there…BEWARE…this is just the beginning!
There are many Young, Modern and Technologically Savvy Republicans out there! And we are growing, especially after the more months pass by of Obama’s reign.

- Update: I left the political life in DC behind, moved to Chicago and joined the corporate world at Groupon. And now life has changed forever as I am a new mama of Mateo!!!!!!! I need advice all the time so I am starting this blog to get it:) past info.... I was born in raised in Michigan; I have a passion to help the economy back home. I am in DC learning how to do that and advocating for my Michigan home and family. I was in a boat crash that should have been fatal but God protected me and now I am not wasting my second chance at life. I believe that Leadership is taking action. If I say I am going to do something I do it no matter what. My family is everything to me and I surround myself with friends who inspire me. I am a young conservative woman; I like fashion, beauty and appreciate gentlemen who hold the door for me. I also support women and think we need more as CEO's and Political Leaders. Yes, you can be conservative and for women so that is why I am going to blog. If you are the same way then get your voice out there too at this website!
