On Saturday, April 14th, at our District 01 Republican Convention in Tulsa, Amanda Teegarden graciously placed my name in nomination for Republican National Delegate. I am pleased to report that I received an alternate delegate slot and I will go to Tampa Florida in August. I will be asking the state convention in May to upgrade my status to delegate and we will see if that can yet occur. I would appreciate your continued prayers on the matter.
Thank you Amanda Teegarden for nominating me!
Because of the time allotted to all the candidates to speak and because of my wanting the speech to NOT be read, here is what was ‘planned’ but I cannot tell you what was actually said. If I get a video link, I will attach it later to this post for you:
I am Sandra Crosnoe. I am from Washington County. I appreciate the opportunity to speak to you today.
I appreciate you being here today to make decisions for our district and for our party. I know you sacrifice time from your family with every moment you spend on political matters. I appreciate that sacrifice.
I know because I have served with many of you on committees and on various projects. I have served as a Republican precinct chair for over 30 years, first in Texas and more recently since I came to Oklahoma in 2005.
You may be aware of my work online with blogs and communication networks, with social networking, with organizing rallies and teaparties, with speaking and mentoring and training in person and via Skype.
Through it all, I have encouraged people to get involved with their local Republican party, serve in volunteer roles, and talk to their representatives in order to really make a difference.
You did and you have and you are. You are here today. Some of you are serving in office and others are now running for office. We have more work to do together!
What draws us together as Republicans are our core principles and our shared values:
We are for limited constitutional government and for free markets and yes, a lot less government.
We support the second amendment — the right to keep and bear arms.
And yes we are prolife — because every life is precious and a gift from God!
I know that together we must hold our leaders and ourselves accountable to these principles. I know that we are a party that believes in the rule of law AND promotes grassroots activism. I believe that every voice is important. I will work to make sure that things are done according to the rules. I will insist on openness and fairness to make sure that everyone has a chance to participate. If you send me, I will go. I will continue my work to get our message of Life and Liberty out across the Land. This election is about more than the just the presidency. It is about promoting people of principle who will make a difference. Together we will Restore the Republic so that future generations may live free and prosper in this great Nation.
I pray God’s blessings on this District, this great state of Oklahoma and this Nation.
I would appreciate your vote for Republican National Delegate!
