Teegarden for OK GOP State Chair Announces Candidacy at OCPAC — Decision will be made April 20th at the State Convention in OKC

Amanda Teegarden Head Shot2Amanda Teegarden announced her candidacy for the State Chair of the Oklahoma Republican Party today. Teegarden’s experience in grassroots education and activism convinced her that “the only way to solve our current crisis is to truly become the party of the people… Oklahoma has a strong history of populism, based upon self-reliance, neighborliness, community and civic involvement that accounts for the unique character so many people admire in our citizens,” Teegarden said.

“That means making our precincts active enterprises for education and activism. The precinct is the smallest political unit in the nation and the most important. American government is designed to flow from the individual up to the precinct and beyond. We need to actively encourage participation in these neighborhood areas so we can help citizens restore good government to our cities, counties, state and nation, “ she continued.

Teegarden, of Tulsa, is the Executive Director of OK-SAFE, a non-profit educational and activism organization dedicated to restoring the principles of the American Free Enterprise system and Constitutional Government. She is a long-time grassroots activist, as well as being in national demand for her work on grassroots training and public policy.

Amanda feels that now is not the time for politics as usual; we must stop recruiting candidates who don’t understand the basic principles of our American system of government. “We need principled men and women of integrity to rise to the challenge of running for office to restore our nation. I intend to find them and equip them to win,” Teegarden said.

She was called by many supporters to consider running. It was a tough decision for Teegarden because last month she was elected as a member of the 1st District Committee. “After four days of prayer, thought and consultation,” she said, “I decided that I would accept the call and take on this new challenge.”

Amanda formally announced this afternoon at a candidate forum sponsored by Oklahoma Political Action Committee.

From her website, Teegarden’s reasons for running for State Chair:

“Amanda is motivated by devotion to principle, implementation of conservative policy, and effective grassroots mobilization. So she is distressed by recent rules changes by the National GOP to dis-empower the grassroots and put all the power to select candidates and state delegates into the hands of people who have lost the last two Presidential elections. She is dedicated to reversing this as State Chairman.

America is at an historic crossroads that will determine whether our grandchildren will enjoy the blessings of freedom or the curse of tyranny. Never has the need for principled, courageous state legislators, state, county and local officials, been so great to resist and roll back the power of the Federal government. As your next GOP State Chairman, Amanda will work tirelessly to help make Oklahoma the model for the nation.”

Qadoshyah Fish has summed things up well and handled matters as we are supposed to by letting the person offending you know of the problem directly. I encourage many of you to do the same as the opportunity permits. Hold the standard of truth and righteousness up high for all the people to see. Challenge people to do better and encourage them to repent AND turn from wicked ways. Leave the door open and keep the light on the matter for all to see~

Lots of information about the Oklahoma state convention controversy. You may be familiar with the “Parking Lot Patriots” of the 2012 Oklahoma GOP State Convention. This report is from a part of that group, and they are pressing their complaint based on violations of various rules and laws. Relevant links, including the actual complaint are here: http://www.okliberty.com/documents

Precinct Meeting and Elections 1-26-2011
“Organize the whole state, so that every Whig can be brought to the polls. Divide the country into small districts and appoint in each a committee. Make a perfect list of voters and ascertain with certainty for whom they will vote. Keep a constant watch on the doubtful voters and have them talked to by those in whom they have the most confidence…and on election day see that exactly every Whig is brought to the polls.”

Oklahoma Republicans-

We can’t organize our state without first organizing our precincts. You have a chance to help in this effort on February 1st, when most counties in Oklahoma will hold precinct meetings for precinct elections.

We must build our Party block by block- and organizing our precincts is the way to do it.

One of the fundamental responsibilities of our Republican county leadership teams is organizing the precincts within their boundaries. We can raise all the money we want, but without the volunteers to make the phone calls and walk the neighborhoods it’s much harder to build a winning formula.

Every county is different- some counties have one location for their precinct elections, others meet in House Districts, and still others meet in individual homes throughout the county. Bottom line: you need to reach out to your county chairman today to figure out where and when your precinct election is. If you are having problems reaching your county chairman we need you to call the State HQ immediately.

We can’t micromanage your precincts, but when it comes to precinct elections and county conventions, we want to help if help is needed. So please, call your county chairman today (a list can be found here) and make plans to attend your precinct election.

We aren’t after Whigs, but Honest Abe had the right strategy 171 years ago. I’m asking for a few hours of your time to help keep this state moving in the right direction. As precinct chairman for Precinct 188, I will be there. Will you?

Chairman of the OKGOP and Precinct 188
