Southwest Georgia will have a stronger Republican presence next month, when the Georgia Republican Party opens a full-time office in Albany. The office will be located at 2516 Dawson Road.
From the press release:
The Regional Headquarters will serve as hubs for Republican clubs, organizations, and individuals who are interested in growing the Party, electing like-minded candidates, and promoting conservative values in Georgia,” said Southwest Regional Director Karen Kemp. “The GAGOP is serious about investing in Southwest Georgia and the opening of this headquarters is the first step towards building a southern stronghold that can withstand the test of time.
Working out of the new office, regional directors will target voter registration, grassroots initiatives and community based projects. The ribbon cutting will be November 6th at noon, and is expected to include Agriculture Secretary Gary Black and Georgia GOP Chair John Padgett.
Albany is in the heart of Georgia’s second congressional district, which also includes portions of Columbus and Macon. Sanford Bishop, who won against GOP challenger John House with 63% of the vote, represents the area.
