Carolyn Cox was elected Chair the Pima County Republican Party on September 8, 2011 after former Chair Brian Miller (former candidate for CD 8 House seat) was removed over the summer. She will be speaking at the Eastside Republicans monthly meeting on Wed. Nov. 16, 6:30 p.m. at Kirk Bear Canyon Branch Library – Community Room, 8959 E. Tanque Verde Road.
Here’s part of Carolyn’s statement when she ran for Chair:
I have been involved with the Pima County Republican Party since my husband, Garland, & I started coming to Arizona in 1999. We moved to Arizona permanently in 2004.
Because Garland & I have been among the major supporters of the Republican Party I believe I will have the creditability necessary to raise funds for the Party to keep the headquarters’ door open. The Party needs to assist candidates and facilitate the election of candidates in every way possible. It takes money to staff & maintain an office to do that.
The get-out- the- vote (GoTV) campaign is important. The Party needs to communicate with voters using all the proven and all the new technologies possible.
I was the Republican candidate for Congress in Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District in the year 2000 campaign. I do understand the challenges a candidate faces.
I was a National Director of Economic Security 2000 from 1997 thru 2003. Its goal was to advocate for younger workers to invest a portion of their Social Security Taxes in an account they would own and receive a market-rate of return on that money.
I was the Chief Financial Officer of an engineering corporation in Colorado. I fully understand pensions and their difference from self-funding IRAs and 401(k)s.
Carolyn graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics, and completed one year of graduate study at the University of Colorado. She has “served on the Tucson Committee for Heritage, the premier conservative Think Tank.” And she’s also been president of the Tucson Conservative Forum since April of 2005.
