Sanders Seeks To Improve Finances Of Hamilton County GOP

Monday, February 25, 2013

New Hamilton County Republican Party Chairman Tony Sanders said he wants to beef up the party's finances.

He said the upcoming Lincoln Day Dinner has been the party's chief fundraising tool, but he wants to add much more to the arsenal.

He told members of the Pachyderm Club he would also like party faithful to get together for a Labor Day picnic and also have a fall dinner that will be less formal than the Lincoln Day event.

Mr. Sanders suggested that a Saturday morning Pachyderm Club be formed to meet four times a year in different parts of the county.

He wants to continue the party golf tournament, which is headed by County Commissioner Marty Haynes.

Mr. Sanders said 200 tickets have been sold to the Lincoln Day Dinner, but he hopes to sell 200 more.

Another idea is for the party to form its own Political Action Committee to help get Republicans elected.

Mr. Sanders, who is a CPA and has an outdoors radio show on Saturday mornings, said the top three priorities for city government should be fighting crime, controlling spending and "improving trust at City Hall."

He said that should be true no matter who is elected, though he said he favors Guy Satterfield.
