Big news coming from Prince William County rising star Terrence Boulden this afternoon, as he has announced his bid for Virginia Prince William Young Republicans chairman:
After much prayer and encouragement from family and friends, I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Prince William County YR Chair.
My focus is to open the door to everyone who wants to participate in the Republican Party. We must not narrow ourselves and the appeal of commonsense principles with litmus tests that drive out those who make our party diverse and welcoming. We must fight together to protect our values and ensure that the blessings of liberty survive.
We must grow a club that can stand strong in the face of an increasingly liberal Northern Virginia and show that there is an alternative: a free market party that puts individual liberty before big government and empowers the entrepreneurial spirit that makes this country great. Together, we will stop Prince William County’s slide into a swing county and back into the red county we all know it to be.
We have work to do and with the help of every activist out there we can accomplish great things — together.
Along with Mr. Joe Desilets who will run for the office of 1st Vice Chair , and Mr. JD Thorpe who will be running as 2nd Vice Chair, we intend on taking this club to the next level.
I ask for your support, your prayers and your vote.
Boulden is a long-standing conservative veteran in the trenches, having done yeoman’s work in northern Virginia and beyond. Glad to see the emphasis on civil liberty too…
UPDATE: Dammit… my exuberance gets the better of me every time… PWYRs would do very well to elect Mr. Boulden to anything he wants!!
