Dinner highlights young GOP members

(Continued)

Harter is part of a youth movement in the local Republican Party that has been met with praise and enthusiasm by Meyer and other conservative stalwarts.

“With Nate, we have a good representation [of younger party members],” said Meyer. “I was very happy with the young people that were at our meeting last night.”

Meyer said he feels the future of the local Republican Party is in good hands and he cited City Council member Blake O’Mara, formerly a Democrat, and Decatur County Sheriff candidate Steve Snyder as further evidence the party’s core values have been accepted by members of the community in their 20’s and 30’s.

“It was really good to be able to get up and talk in front of all my strong supporters of the Republican Party,” Snyder said.

Harter added Friday that his party has been “developing a chapter of Young Republicans for folks ages 18-40.” That group has been meeting lately and is “eager to join in service” to the Decatur County community.

More experienced party members, however, are continuing to spread the GOP’s doctrine.

Mayor Gary Herbert and County Commissioner Jerome Buening were among the local Republicans present. They were joined by Secretary of State Connie Lawson, State Auditor Suzanne Crouch, State Senator Jean Leising and State Representatives Randy Frye and Cindy Ziemke among numerous others.

U.S. Congressman Luke Messer appeared via video at the Decatur County Community Schools Administration Building Thursday night, Meyer said, and talked of the importance for Republican candidates to regain control of the Senate via the General Election this November. Messer also spoke of the need to alter elements of the Affordable Care Act.

Meyer stated his view that the divisive issues in Washington that have led to standoffs and stalemates between Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill haven’t trickled down to the local level.
