Today, GOProud announced that Tammy Bruce, the 2009 Conservative Blogress Diva Regent (AKA the Endora), will will chair the group’s newly formed Advisory Council.
Calling the diva talk show host “one of the most influential voices in the conservative movement today,” Christopher Barron, Chairman of GOProud’s Board, said the group is honored to have her as part of the GOProud team”:
GOProud’s Avisory Council will be made up of prominent conservative leaders in the media, public-policy and politics who will serve as a resource for GOProud’s Board and staff. Barron said, “The addition the Advisory Council as a part of GOProud’s leadership structure will allow us to draw on the talent and expertise of prominent conservative leaders from a variety of backgrounds to help us to advance our mission.”
Tammy was our guest in March at the Claremont Institute dinner honoring Vice President Cheney.
On her blog, Tammy writes:
As you all know I am an Independent Conservative without party affiliation, and despite its name GOProud is not associated with the Republican Party. It is instead a group for conservative gays who are committed to promoting the conservative agenda in all of our efforts to confront and solve our nation’s problems. Here’s some coverage of the announcement. I am excited about GOProud and my association with them.
Even the Washington Post picked up on the story. This is another sign that GOProud is picking up steam. Tammy will be a real asset to the organization.
