What is the future of the Hamilton County GOP?
Party Chairman George Vincent and conservative leader Chris Finney will discuss the issue Feb. 25th.
For those of you keeping track, Finney was the one who criticized the Party for endorsing the jail tax last year. He claimed the divide was about more than just the tax and the party needed a "new direction." And he wasn't alone.
Jeff Capell, president of the Blue Chip Young Republicans (which is hosting the discussion), said the debate is important and “It speaks very well of both Mr. Vincent and Mr. Finney that they are willing to have this important discussion in public.” Here are the details:

Local GOP Chairman to appear with conservative leader
The Blue Chip Young Republicans are pleased to welcome Hamilton County Republican Party Chairman George Vincent and conservative leader Chris Finney to our club’s February meeting, where they will jointly lead a group discussion about the direction of the Republican Party.
The meeting will take place Monday, February 25th at 7:00 PM at Monty’s (4108 Montgomery Road). All are welcome to attend.
“It speaks very well of both Mr. Vincent and Mr. Finney that they are willing to have this important discussion in public,” explained Club President Jeff Capell. “This also presents a great opportunity for club members to express their opinions about the current state of the party and get straight answers from either speaker about recent decisions they have made.”
The Blue Chip Young Republicans believe that open discussion is healthy for the party and are excited to play a role in bringing the party together for November 2008.
