ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) has approved the charter of a Republican women’s club in New York.
Montgomery County Women's Republican Club was chartered May 4 with 15 members. Brittany Kolbe of Amsterdam will lead the club as president this year.
“The NFRW is pleased to welcome this club into our nationwide network of grassroots leaders,” NFRW President Carrie Almond said. “We look forward to working with Brittany and club members to promote Republican principles and elect Republican candidates during this 2016 election cycle and beyond.”
Annual club dues are $20. These dues also cover membership in the NFRW and in the New York State Federation of Republican Women.
"Our mission is to bring together women of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds who agree with the ideals and values of the Republican Party,” Kolbe said. “We work to influence the positive direction of our nation, our state and our community by promoting the principles of freedom, equality and justice on which this country was founded.”
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
