A message from Ted Hicks
Durham County GOP Chairman
Please support David Smudski for Durham Planning Commission
We have an urgent need for all of our trusted Durham GOP activists to contact the current members of the Durham Commissioners before their meeting next Tuesday, the 26th of April, when they will be voting to fill a vacancy which we hope to fill with one of our own.
Dave Smudski, as most of you know, is our former GOP County Chair and long-time loyal activist. He has applied to the planning commision and, if elected, will be one of only three Republicans currently serving on all of our Durham Government boards and commissions.
For 12 years before moving to Durham, Dave served in Hillsborough, NC on the Orange County Board of Adjustments where he became vitally aware of the role government plays in property rights and zoning laws.
Dave explains “The seat that I would be eligible for is currently held by Wendy Jacobs, who has served the Commission for a long time and represented her constituents well.” Some believe that Wendy may be interested in running next year for the Board of County Commissioners.
Please take time to call and/or email the members listed below, especially Chairman Michael Page, Joe Bowser, and Brenda Howerton who are our most likely possible votes. For the greatest impact we would prefer that each of you use your own uniquely worded emails and phone calls of support.
That being said, you could mention some or all of the following points:
- Dave is qualified. He served on the Orange County Board of Adjustments for 12 years.
- Dave is dedicated & loyal.
- Dave is a responsible, hard-working citizen who loves Durham.
Please see below for the email addresses and phone numbers for the folks we’d like you to call and/or email. If we are going to turn the Durham GOP into a relevant factor in Durham politics, we have to get Republicans appointed to these boards. This is the first opportunity to do so since I’ve become Chairman and I hope you’ll help me get Dave appointed.
Contact Information for Those We’d Like You to Contact. If you, and your friends can help, emails and phone calls supporting Dave’s appointment should be directed to:
Chairman – Rev. Michael D. Page – (919) 361-2146 firstname.lastname@example.org
