Uncategorized 0 No Comments

Chairman

Candidate for Chairman, Stephen Jackson

It’s been an honor to serve as your chairman this year, and I humbly ask for the opportunity to lead the DCYRs in 2014-15.  Over the last few years, I’ve led and attended dozens of deployments to elect Republicans of all stripes across the nation. As I ran our historic 2012 deployment operations and currently serve as YRNF’s Campaign Chair, I possess the experience and acumen to further our group’s campaign activism in 2014.

Formalizing the DCYRs community service and outreach efforts has been a tremendous success. By engaging new people and places in DC, we are helping to lead the DCGOP’s comeback locally and paving the way for a Republican resurgence nationwide.

A vote for me is an affirmation of our group’s current strength and bright future. I hope you will afford me the chance to continue leading the most robust, diverse, and best Young Republican organization in America.

- Stephen

Candidate for Chairman, Robert Sinners

Robert Sinners is the current Membership Chairman of the DC Young Republicans. His leadership experience includes tenure as former Vice Chairman of College Republicans, and the Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Society – all while earning a Master’s Degree in Public Administration (MPA). His professional experience includes stints in both public and private sectors. Currently, he holds no professional loyalties to any candidate or cause, working as an Analyst for a commercial real estate company. His vision for our organization is unlike any previous, and he is eager to meet and welcome you to this organization.

- Robert

Executive Vice Chair

Candidate for Executive Vice Chair, Dan Anderson

I have been active in DCYRs for four years. In that time, I have deployed to five states for Republican states. I have an extensive fundraising background as well as experience managing GOTV for a congressional campaign. I also volunteered to help relaunch the DCYR blog, RightDC. Which unfortunately never got off the ground, a problem I hope to rectify with the incoming Communications chair.

I believe my diverse background in politics makes me a uniquely-qualified candidate to serve as your next Executive Vice Chair. I hope to earn your support as we take DCYRs to the next level during this critical election year. If I can be of any assistance to you please don’t hesitate to email me ( andersondt2@gmail.com ), Thank you.

- Dan

Candidate for Executive Vice Chair, Jen Stello

My name is Jen Stello, I have been a Republican in Washington, DC since 2009 and have been actively involved in the DCYRs as well as the local party since that time. From deployments to softball teams, and clean ups to making chocolate elephants, I have given my time, energy, and experience into this club to help make it amazing and I hope to continue to do so as your next Executive Vice Chair!

I will work hard at all levels of the organization to make sure you are heard and we have a club you want to be a part of expanding on the hard work I have dedicated to this organization since 2009 as a member, and 2012 as an executive board member.

If you have any questions or have ideas for the future of the organization please reach out to me at ( jen.stello@dcyrs.com ) and I look forward to seeing you ALL in March for the DC Young Republicans Executive Board Elections and I hope I can count on your support!

- Jen

National Committeeman

Candidate for National Committeeman, Daniel Goldbeck

Having served as your National Committeeman over the past year, I bring the necessary experience and vision to this position as we head into a critical election year. I have been heavily involved with nearly every campaign deployment over the past two years. As an active member of the YRNF campaign committee, I will continue to be a leading voice in optimizing our organization’s political capabilities.

A major part of our club’s purpose is to build, promote, and advance our local party. As an active member of the DC GOP for a number of years now and current member of the Policy Committee, I will ensure the DCYRs remain a strong force in our local campaign and outreach efforts.

We are at our strongest when we marshal a broad, inclusive coalition. This is the DCYR tradition I know and hope to uphold. I’d truly appreciate your support.

- Dan

Candidate for National Committeeman, Travis Korson

The 2014 midterm elections will be a crucial time for the Young Republican National Federation that will require conservative leadership. After serving two terms as Executive Vice-Chairman, I promise to bring this conservative leadership to our YRNF.

I have already taken a large leadership role within the YRNF in my capacity as the Co-Chair of the upcoming Young Republican Leadership Conference. As National Committeeman, I would leverage these contacts to deploy YRs to the hottest races of 2014 and advocate for the views of our organization.  Leadership also requires surrounding yourself with capable leaders, specifically our own membership.

If elected, I promise create a more inclusive Executive Board, creating committees to help with deployments, fundraising and other critical YR functions.  With these promises before you, I ask for your support to serve as National Committeeman. If elected, I pledge to work with you to advance our conservative ideas even further.

- Travis

National Committeewoman

Candidate for National Committeewoman, Katie Poedtke

Over the past year, I have been proud to represent the diverse, energized, and engaged DCYRs as our National Committeewoman. Along with our Chairman and National Committeeman, I attended every Young Republican National Federation meeting during my term and, as a member of the YRNF Outreach Committee, contributed to a forthcoming strategy for promoting YR membership and influence nationwide.

I would be honored to have another year to continue the relationships and reputation I’ve helped us build over my last two years on the board (previously as Vice Chair of Membership), not only with the YRNF, but also with the larger Republican community in the DC area and with all the candidates around the country that we’ve helped. In addition to my representational duties, you can be sure that I will continue to be an active member of the board, gladly taking on tasks big and small to ensure all of our operations and events are professional and effective.

- Katie

Official Launch Party Announced For RightDC.com – the “Official Blog of The DC Young Republicans”!

Uncategorized 0 No Comments

By: Travis N. Taylor, Editor-In-Chief, RightDC.com

426324_360303260716884_266249032_nWe all know it isn’t easy being “Right” in DC.  But, since August 2012RightDC.com has been making our lives in the Capitol City just a little easier.  As the “official blog of the DC Young Republicans,” We here at RightDC offer a unique point of information for local – and national – political issues by providing high-quality original content and unparalleled opportunity for intelligent, public debates between members of the Republican Party of all ideological stripes.

As we celebrate our seventh month of publication, RightDC.com, with the support of the DCYRs invites YOU to join us for the DCYRs February Happy Hour featuring the OFFICIAL Launch Party of RightDC.com!  

Next Tuesday, February 26th, from 6:30-9:00 p.m., join us for networking, debate, and of course drink specials as we take over the entire lower level of the Pour House on Capitol Hill!  (Click here for more details, and to RSVP on Facebook)

Our diverse team of regular and guest contributors has taken on the mainstream media bias in hard-hitting response pieces, cautioned our peers about “the most dangerous saying in America today” and even “the ‘most dangerous words in the American Constitution.’”  We have called out an over-reaching government on ways Maryland speed cameras are operating illegallyoffered a defense of the Second Amendment, and lamented the re-definition of the American Dream.  Our campaign experts have recommended ways for even the youngest Young Republican to take meaningful action during elections; they have criticized local candidates who tried to sell out their party, and even blew the minds of biased media by making “A Gay American’s Case for Mitt Romney.”  We have hosted the stories of converts – “From Democrat To DCYR Chairwoman” – and regularly defended Republicans as: “The Real Party of Tolerance: Differences in Ideas Are Welcome Here.”  And together we have written muchmuchmore.

Not all of these ideas fit together cleanly – but they all belong to Young Republicans who fearlessly defend their ideas and convictions to a party constantly in flux. The DCYRs have long been recognized as “leaders of today, not just leaders of tomorrow,” and the contributors at RightDC.com continue to prove this claim.  As the Republican Party collectively debates what it should be today, tomorrow, two years from now, four years from now, and on into the future; the writers of RightDC.com add their voice to the mix.

While many of our professional positions limit how, when, and where our personal ideas for the party’s prosperity may be shared, the platform of RightDC.com is open to all who can string together a cohesive argument on a timely issue with local, or national, relevance for the Republican Party.

You may always feel free to e-mail me, the Editor-In-Chief, or DCYR’s Vice-Chair of Communications, James Christophersen (James.Christophersen@DCYRs.com) for details on how you can become involved!  But the best way to get your questions answered and to add your voice to the conversation is to show up on Tuesday night!  And I hope to see you there!

James Christophersen contributed greatly to this invitation.  Click here to read the post, in its original format, on RightDC.com.

Stephen pounded doors and pavement throughout the past two elections. Nearly every week this fall, he organized and personally led deployments in various states for numerous Republican candidates.

Stephen will bring the enthusiasm and commitment he demonstrated organizing and campaigning to the position of DCYR Chairman. He’ll continue to find interesting and relevant speakers for meetings, provide volunteer opportunities for DCYR members, and keep the DCYRs active in D.C. politics.

Candidate for National Committeeman - Daniel Goldbeck

Dan goldbeckMy name is Dan Goldbeck and I seek to be your next DCYR National Committeeman. I believe I have the vision and experience to excel in representing the DC Young Republicans.

I have been a member of the DCYRs for over two years now. During that time, I’ve participated in nearly every campaign opportunity presented. Through working on various campaigns across different locales, I feel capable of working with our national network to advance the goals of our YR chapter and the Republican Party at large.

My vision is to help build a bigger, bolder party. The right ideas and proposals are out there, we just have to be more focused and refined in promoting them. I think the DCYRs have plenty to say about the direction of our party, and would be honored to be your voice to the national party as our national dialogue develops.

Candidate for National Committeewoman - Katie Poedtke

katie PoedtkeAfter serving as our Vice-Chair of Membership during this past year of extraordinary membership growth and involvement, I have a unique understanding of exactly who makes up the DCYRs, what our abilities are, and what our needs are when it comes to collaboration with and support from the Young Republican National Federation. That’s why, this year, I want to represent our organization not only around town, but nationally, and to the YRNF as our National Committeewoman. I got to see firsthand just how important the NCM and NCW are when I attended an YRNF meeting last fall, and I would be thrilled attend this year as an official representative of the DCYRs, an organization I am very proud to be a part of. You can be sure that as NCW, I will be committed to ensuring that DCYRs remains an organization that you’re proud to be a part of, too.

Candidates for Executive Vice-Chair

Susey Davis

Susey DavisI have lived in Washington, DC for five years and have fallen in love with the city and atmosphere of the growing young professional base. I currently work at a fundraising firm where I help communicate with Chiefs of Staff, Campaign Managers, and the lobbying community to raise money and win elections. All too familiar with working long hours, I promise that I will put my full dedication and hard work into the DCYRs Executive Vice-Chair Position.

I hope to grow membership by reaching out to the local college republicans, and getting them involved in our volunteer and campaign projects. I also want to create a program that will train and support young republicans in running for local office. If we want to switch the Democrat majority in our city government, we should start from the bottom up, and get people interested in running for ANC.

Thank you DCYR!

Travis Korson

Travis KorsonElections, outreach and membership development. If re-elected as DCYR Executive Vice-Chairman, these are the areas of focus I will work to advance. Last cycle the DCYRs made almost 200k voter contacts. I will work to leverage the DCYRs energy, and my working relationship both with the Mara campaign and DCGOP, in the current special election to offer members more opportunities for involvement. Placing more emphasis on DC provides an opportunity for the YRs to grow. By fostering existing relationships and seeking out new ones, I pledge to make the DCYRs more active in Washington.  Membership development is important for our group’s success.  Whether that’s networking opportunities, increasing members-only benefits, including a DCYRs referred job bank, or other initiatives, I promise to offer ideas and support to the other Vice-Chairs.  If re-elected I promise to work with you to grow the DCYRs together. I hope I can count on your support.

Candidates for Vice-Chair of Finance

Dan Hoicowitz

Dan HoicowitzFriends, I want to ask for your vote and support for the role of DCYR Vice Chair of Finance. I have been active in local politics since I came to DC as freshman at American University several years ago. I have seen politics from a variety of roles including the field, finance, communications, and working in a team with a diverse group of people. Currently, I am managing Patrick Mara’s campaign for DC Council At-Large. I believe my background and experience makes me well adept at fulling the role of Vice Chair of Finance. I hope you consider me on March 27, 2013.

Kailee Tkacz

Kailee TkaczI’m running to become the VC of Finance because not only am I committed to the necessary tasks of collecting and approving disbursements in a timely and efficient manner, but aim to expand this position to include various fundraising capabilities. With my knowledge, network, and dedication I seek to bring DCYR to a new level financially allowing us as an organization to both increase our profile and prosper long-term.

Professionally, I work at the National Grocers Association (NGA) as Government Affairs Manager where I deal with various budgetary issues, work with our Grocers PAC, and manage relationships with key Members of Congress. Prior to my role at NGA I worked as a Tax Analyst at both the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the Tax Foundation which makes me qualified to handle DCYR financial matters. I have been an active and engaged member of DCYR for over a year.

Candidate for Vice-Chair of Membership - Robert Sinners

My aspiriation to lead you as Membership Chair is based upon one philosophy: to provide a networking and civic involvement opportunity for new and temporary DC residents who are looking to become proactive members of their newfound community here in The District.

Without the leadership of DCYR’s, I feel that my transition after college and into DC wouldnt have been nearly as successful. The campaign opportunities, friends, and growth that the organization has provided is priceless- now, I’d like to reach out and ensure that the next crop arrives safely under our wing. With a focus on not only recruiting new members, but assisting with professional development and personal growth, we will attain a new pinnacle of success

I hope to have your support, and that I may be able to share my vision with you in the future.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to serving you.

Candidate for Vice-Chair of Communications - Christopher Taylor

Chris TaylorI believe the conservative movement is not necessarily in need of change, a doctrinal shift, or reform; but strong concise leadership. On the national stage as well as grassroot movements, the members and volunteers of the Young Republicans perform a strong and very dynamic outreach. We represent many different views of conservatism and hail from many different parts of the country. It is my desire as Communications Chair to effectively reach out to all members and to utilize our individual strengths to benefit our organization and those whom we represent. I bring strong and knowlegable traits in electronic media and oratory with me. I will devote all of the time needed to maintain the organization that our predecessors and we have made so successful, and to remain one of the premier Young Republican organizations in America.

Candidate for Vice-Chair of Events - Jen Stello

Jen StelloIt has been an honor to serve as your Vice Chair of Events for the 2012-2013 term and hope you will re-elect me for a second term. This past year I have worked hard to listen to the membership to provide opportunities and host events all of our members can get excited about and plan to continue into the next year!

Once elected we’ll expand our community service activities not only through fundraising and donations efforts but also through fun volunteer events and will of course maintain the high standard of events which makes being a DCYR so great!

Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to the 2013-2014 year!

“DCYRsOnTour” On the frontline this weekend in the key swing state of Ohio

 

 

The following Press Release was issued today by the DCYRs discussing their massive GOTV efforts for the 2012 election, and the Young Republican enthusiasm see across the country – it can be viewed in full in its original format here.

 

 

 

 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Volunteer DC Young Republicans Make More Than 194,000

Voter Contacts Supporting Republican Candidates in 2012

Contact: James Christophersen

Email: communications@dcyrs.com

Phone: (571) 331-5956

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Supporting Republican candidates, locally, and across the country, has always been a hallmark of the DC Young Republicans (DCYRs). Through this election cycle the DCYRs efforts have surged above and beyond anyone’s expectations, setting records in multiple states as more than 500 DC-area Young Republicans have deployed on 12 trips to 9 different states accumulating a collective total of over 161,000 voter contacts in the last three months alone.

Additional efforts for local and special elections bring the total to 194,600 voter contacts since January 2012.

When asked about their efforts, the DCYRs Chairman, Katie Todd, had this to say: “After traveling around the country to get out the vote, the DCYRs’ excitement about Election Day is palpable. Our members have demonstrated the very best of their generation with their passion and resolve to get America back on track by electing Romney/Ryan and the Republican ticket.”

She continued, “Recognizing the importance of grassroots efforts, DCYRs have worked tirelessly reaching out to voters in key battleground states about the choice between two distinct visions for our country. We are confident these efforts will pay off. Thank you to our amazing membership who turned out each weekend to volunteer, and to Stephen Jackson, our National Committeeman, for leading this tremendous effort mobilizing and recruiting new members in this effort.”

The records set by the DCYRs in their campaign have received additional acclaim due to the wholly volunteer nature of the organization. All membership and leadership, including board members, are volunteers who receive no compensation for their efforts, taking their evenings, weekends, and vacation days from their professional positions to support Republican candidates across the country and DCYRs projects.

“The DC GOP is proud to unveil the list of the 35 most influential young Republicans under 35 who demonstrate a strong commitment to the goals of our urban party and dedication to conservative principles which will help guide the next generation of leaders in our nation’s capital,” stated Republican National Committeewoman for DC – Elect Jill Homan and Tom Weirich, Founding Chairs of the 35 Under 35 Program.

Christophersen, DCYR Vice-Chair of Communications, stated: “The DC Young Republicans have long emphasized our organization as striving to produce ‘Leaders of Today, Not Just Leaders of Tomorrow.’  The honors bestowed on eight of our current members named to the DC GOP’s inaugural ‘35 Under 35 List’ underscores our successes in that mission and will serve as an inspiration to all DCYR members.  I consider it a distinct honor to be included among so many notable leaders and close friends.”
