"Lisa brings a lifetime of experience to our growing effort," said GAGOP Minority Engagement Director Leo Smith. "From serving on the Executive Committee of the DeKalb GOP to crafting engagement strategies as a member of the Georgia Black Republican Council, Lisa is uniquely prepared to train candidates and volunteers, lead Get Out the Vote efforts, and host voter education meetings with community partners around the state."
"The Georgia Republican Party's Minority Engagement program is crucial to the growth of the Party and the advancement of conservative values and policy," said GAGOP Chairman John Padgett. "We are fortunate to have an experienced leader like Lisa on the team and I look forward to working with her in the months and years ahead to move the GAGOP forward."
A graduate of Georgia State University, Lisa serves on the Executive Committee of the DeKalb GOP. She also serves as Vice President and Assistant Treasurer of the North DeKalb Republican Women and works with Governor Nathan Deal's team as a grassroots leader in DeKalb County. Lisa has been married to Garry for 24 years. They have three sons: Kristopher, Joshua, and Jonathan.
The GAGOP's Minority Engagement efforts were recently profiled by international news outlet, The Guardian.
In an effort to unseat longtime Democratic Congressman John Barrow (GA-12), the Georgia Republican Party is doubling down on resources and staff in Georgia's 12th Congressional District.
Earlier this month, the GAGOP hired South Georgia native and Valdosta State graduate Natalie Jones to serve as the Party's Southeastern Regional Director.
Working out of the GAGOP Satellite office in Statesboro (606 S. Zetterower Ave., Suite 100), Jones is responsible for organizing support for the Republican nominee Rick Allen in the southern part of Georgia's 12th Congressional District. Jones is also in charge of turning out the vote for the rest of the Republican ticket from Governor and U.S. Senate down to local candidates.
Jones is one of many field directors participating in the Georgia Republican Party's Victory Program this year. Scattered throughout the state, these grassroots activists work to organize volunteers, indentify voters, and Get Out the Vote on Election Day.
"I'm excited to be in South Georgia promoting conservative values and Republican candidates," said Jones. "The American Dream is under siege and I want to do my part to protect opportunity and prosperity for future generations. Serving as the GAGOP's Southeastern Regional Director allows me to connect with my friends and neighbors in South Georgia and help establish a southern stronghold that will withstand the test of time."
Natalie Jones will host various grassroots events throughout South Georgia. For details, call 229.886.7450 or e-mail Natalie.Jones@gagop.org.
