Young Republicans stand united against proposed ALGOP changes

BIRMINGHAM, AL -

From: Young Republican Federation of Alabama;

In response to the recent proposed amendments to the Alabama Republican Party Bylaws, the Executive Committee of the Young Republican Federation of Alabama (YRFA) has unanimously voted to express their opposition to the potential bylaw changes by passing the resolution found below, and also available on their website

The Chairman of the YRFA, Clayton Turner of Homewood, provided the following statement: "I am proud that Young Republicans are standing united in opposition to the proposed bylaw changes. Whether it is a change in the qualifying procedure for the State Executive Committee, a rule disallowing elected officials from serving on County and State Executive Committees, or a restriction of free thought and speech for members of the State Party Steering Committee, these proposed bylaw changes are a divisive overreach that restrict the ability of all Republicans to engage in the ongoing activities of the Alabama Republican Party."

He continued, "The YRFA believes our Party is better when we allow and promote the engagement of more, not fewer, Republicans and their ideas. Our Party and Country's future is dependent on our ability to reach and embrace new voters and ideas. Our future is brighter when we respectfully work together and our hope is that the Alabama Republican Party will follow the lead of the Young Republican Federation of Alabama in this regard."

The following is the Resolution adopted by the Executive Committee of the YRFA:
 



YOUNG REPUBLICAN FEDERATION OF ALABAMA
 

Whereas, The Young Republican Federation of Alabama is the premier organization for young professional conservatives (ages 18-40) in Alabama;

Whereas, The Young Republican Federation of Alabama is an integral part of the growth and leadership of the Alabama Republican Party;

Whereas, There are three proposed potential bylaw amendments before the Alabama Republican Party that include:

  • Creating a provision that no member of the Alabama Republican Party Steering Committee is allowed to publicly advocate a position contrary to the Republican National Platform
  • Eliminating virtually all Republican elected officials from serving on the State and County parties as well as from serving as delegates and alternates to the Republican National Convention
  • Requiring Republican candidates who seek State Party bonus seats to now qualify with the Alabama Republican Party instead of allow County Parties to continue to control this long standing procedure

Whereas, Such proposals are deemed by the Executive Committee of the Young Republican Federation as an overreach of the purposes and principles of the Alabama Republican Party;

Whereas, The Executive Committee of the Young Republican believes that the Republican Party in general should be a place for an open discussion of ideas;

Whereas, The Alabama Republican Party should be a place where we celebrate the things we agree on instead of ostracizing people on those things that we do not;

Whereas, Republican elected officials have long held positions in leadership in our County and State Parties for the benefit of those parties;

Whereas, Elected positions to the State and County Party, as well as delegates are elected by the voters of Alabama; and

Whereas, There has been a long standing practice of allowing County Parties to direct their own methods of electing bonus and substitute members to the State Executive Committee; therefore be it

Resolved, That the Executive Committee of the Young Republican Federation of Alabama stands united against these potential bylaw changes;

Resolved, That the Executive Committee of the Young Republican Federation of Alabama strongly encourages and request that all members of the Alabama Republican Party State Executive Committee vote and reject all three of these changes.

 

Adopted unanimously on 8/18/2013
 



The YRFA is the premier organization for young professional conservatives (ages 18 – 40) in Alabama. Our focus is on electing Republican candidates at all levels from the courthouse to the White House, along with providing a training ground and an incubator for future candidates, and finally providing a wonderful networking option for like-minded young professional conservatives.
