Lila Fillmore – President

I invite you to take a few moments to read about the Houston County Republican Women on our web page. I invite you also to consider becoming a member of our organization. As our Mission Statement says “we are strong, caring, conservative women…” We have a strong belief in family values, individual initiative, free enterprise, low taxes, fiscal responsibility, limited government and honesty and accountability in our government. We are committed to our nation’s constitution, as adopted by our Founding Fathers. Our goal is to elect Republicans at all levels of government, local, state and national.

The following objectives are found in our bylaws:

  • To promote an informed electorate through political education
  • To increase the effectiveness of women in the cause for good government through active political participation.
  • To facilitate cooperation among Republican Women’s Clubs.
  • To foster loyalty to the Republican Club and promote its ideals.
  • To work for the election of the Republican Party’s nominees.
  • To support and work for ballot security in general elections.
  • To support objectives and policies of the Republican National Committee, the Alabama Republican Executive Committee and the National and Alabama Federations of Republican Women.

Men are encouraged to join the Houston County Republican Women as Associate Members.  Though not voting members, you are very valuable to our group.

What wonderful election results on November 8, 2016! We now have a Republican President, a majority in both the House & Senate and Republican majorities in many states. We have an opportunity to reverse much of the harmful legislation of the past 8 years. We also remembered the importance of the Supreme Court when we went to the polls. Let us not get complacent in our victory but to move forward with the legislative agenda being set in Washington and in the great state of Alabama. The inauguration of President Trump and Vice-President Pence will take place on January 20, 2017. Although there is division in our country over the election results our party is in a position to Make America Great Again.

As HCRW President I look forward to working with you as we recruit new members, grow our club, train new leaders and educate the citizens of Alabama on key political issues as we support and continue to elect Republicans who will be steadfast in their commitment and act to preserve the values and freedoms we hold dear in this great United States of America.
