At the City Council's public hearing on Saturday, April 12, Sharon Annear, chair of the ARCC Research Committee, testified in support of continuing vital fire fighting services around the City. And, like any good Republican, gave the Council specific cuts to make in the manager's proposed budget to fund these vital services.
Tuesday night, April 3, 2014, the Alexandria Republicans met and reorganized for the 2014-2016 term of the Alexandria Republican City Committee (ARCC).
Everyone took time to thank and show our appreciation and support for Tom Fulton. Tom gave his time over the last three years to lead the Alexandria Republicans. He worked hard and spent countless hours working to improve the organization and to make sure we were all involved in what was going on in Alexandria. We can't thank Tom enough for all of this hard work. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
In addition we welcomed our new Chairman, Chris Marston, who will lead the Alexandria Republicans for the next two years.
Launching Ground for “Leadership that Listens” –
Former Governor George Allen joined local Republican leaders and grass roots volunteers on Saturday, March 22, 2014, for the official opening of the Grand Old Party’s new headquarters in Old Town, Alexandria. The crowd of more than 60 Republicans, young and old, cheered as the ribbon was cut and the headquarters declared open for business.
The 8th District will be holding its biennial District Convention, as required under the Republican Party of Virginia’s Party Plan. At the convention, we will be electing an 8th District Chairman (for a two-year term) and, by vote of the District Committee, we will also be nominating the 2014 Republican candidate for Congress.
The convention will be held on Saturday, April 26th, 2014, at 10:00 am at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington – 6600 Little Falls Road, Arlington (map). The convention is open to the public.

The filing deadline for members of the 2014 term of the ARCC and delegates to the 8th District and State Conventions has passed. Because fewer people filed than the total number of seats on the ARCC and delegate slots to the conventions were available, no canvass will be held.
The Credentials Committee will review all the filings that have been received and make its official report soon.
