Eric Wall announces candidacy for RPOF State Committeeman in Bay County

My name is  Eric Wall and I am running for the State Committeeman
 position. I would like to take this
 opportunity to tell you more about myself, what I stand
 for, and how I can help the GOP win this November and in
 the future election cycles to come.   
 
 I have been involved in politics in one way or another
 since being a member of the Bay County Young Republicans in
 1988 after moving to Panama City, FL. Both of my parents
 have been conservative for most of my adult life. Being a
 9th-generation American on my father's side, I am an
 heir to our proud family tradition of serving our country
 since before the Revolutionary War. I am an Army veteran as
 well and I have always been concerned about veteran's
 issues.
 
 I consider myself first and foremost a fiscal conservative.
 Government spending is out of control. As a member of the
 Republican Liberty Caucus Florida state executive
 committee, the RNC, as well as the Tax Cap Coalition,
 working with Americans for Prosperity, Florida Taxpayers
 Union and the James Madison Institute, I have met with
 legislators in the Florida House, Senate and the
 Governor's office regarding property taxes and enacting
 spending caps,including the GOP House leadership this past
 session. As your State Committeeman I intend to organize
 privately-funded trips to Tallahassee to make legislators
 aware of our concerns during the Legislative session. The
 Capitol halls are filled with large groups asking for more
 government handouts during the average session. We need to
 make our voice heard as Republicans, and to do it in person
 is much more effective.
 
 I was a field coordinator, precinct leader and Bay county
 treasurer for the Ron Paul 2008 presidential campaign, with
 responsibilities in Washington, Jackson, Holmes, Gulf,
 Calhoun, Liberty, Bay and Wakulla counties that involved a
 lot of travel during the primary season. We raised over
 $2000 for the primary. Now that the primaries are over I
 intend to work hard to get all Republicans elected. All
 debate regarding the future of the Party is pointless
 unless we work to that end. We are the underdogs this
 cycle, and with the stakes so high, quite frankly I feel we
 must win.
 
 I am 36, I have attended Gulf Coast C.C. and Florida State
 in  Tallahassee. I have spent most of my life in the private
 sector, including UPS, retail,restaurants, you name it. I
 consider myself working-class, which is a key constituency
 for the GOP to reach this election cycle. I have done work
 in market research,including creating and taking polls,
 oppositional research, outreach,fund raising, get out the
 vote efforts, have supervised volunteers, set-up for
 events, canvassed as well as whatever has been asked of me.
 Every job I have ever had I have learned every aspect of
 that job.
 
 I am the Precinct 26 Committeeman, representing over 1,500
 Republicans through November 2012. I have the fifth-largest
 precinct, and my goal is to be number 1 in voter turnout.
 
 I am a member of the GOP Platform Committee. This is a new
 effort launched by the RNC to encourage more voter
 participation in our platform. I support this endeavor and
 I encourage you to join me.

 I believe that our leaders should be more accessible to the
 average voter,and as your State Committeeman I intend to be. I
 have accounts on MySpace, Facebook, Purple Florida,and
 Twitter.

 exchange ideas:

 I am a contributor to the blog State of Sunshine:

 I recommend the Sayfie Review as a great source on Florida
 politics.

 In conclusion,I ask for your vote as a candidate for State
 Committeeman August 26, so I can represent Bay County and
 help the Republican Party of Florida return to its
 conservative roots.
 
 Thank you for your consideration,
 Eric Wall
