FROM OUR PRESIDENT LOIS WELSH
Our November luncheon brought the presentation and election of our
2014 Lee Republican Women's Club Officers. I want to thank you for
your vote of confidence in electing me again to serve another year as
your president. As I stated last year , "I am not perfect". I strive for
excellence but am bound to make mistakes along the way. I promise
to be open and honest with you and to fulfill the duties of the president as
stated in our bylaws. I appreciate your trust and the many encouraging words that have been spoken to me by our members. I also appreciate the ladies who have agreed to serve beside me on the board as fellow officers and committee chairs. We will work together and do our best for you.
When anyone agrees to serve in any capacity, there is an element of expectation and trust that goes along with service. What happens when an elected person takes an action that violates our trust and runs against our expectations ? It is common for us to lose our trust, feel cheated and tricked, realize our helplessness to change the other person, get angry, perhaps cast shame and resentment toward the person who has violated our trust. As humans we need to remind ourselves often that no one is perfect. To shoot and kick the person who is down is counterproductive and causes additional pain for all concerned, including ourselves. Time changes things, all things. Prayer changes things and it changes us.
Our public servants/elected officials are human and they are not perfect. We have open access to those we have elected locally. I encourage all of you to express your opinion regarding legislature directly to your representative. Call their offices, talk with them or their staff. In good times and in bad, they love to hear from us. Phone numbers are in our membership directory for Federal, State, County and City elected officials. Be open and honest with them about your expectations and your ideas for our nation and community. When their actions meet your expectations tell them that and encourage them. When you are disappoint with their votes or actions, contact their office directly and let them know. Do not pass rumors, spread anger and fear, or shoot someone when they are down. This damages everyone, especially our Republican Party. Be constructive with your criticisms, not destructive and divisive.
During this season of Thanksgiving and Christmas, lets decide to find things to be grateful for. Please join us for our December 10 dinner meeting and consider bringing a friend.
In Your Service, Lois Welsh
