Statement of the GOProud Board of Directors

(Washington, D.C.) – On Saturday January 12th, the GOProud Board of Directors met in Washington, D.C. At the conclusion of this meeting, the Board of Directors issued the following release:

“This weekend, the GOProud Board of Directors elected new officers for 2013. Lisa De Pasquale was elected to a full-term as the Chair of GOProud’s Board of Directors, Bruce Carroll was elected Vice-Chair and Jessica Lee was elected Secretary.

“The GOProud Board of Directors also voted unanimously to expand the organization’s mission to now include state work. Over the next few months, GOProud will be chartering state affiliates to help carry out the important work of the organization on the state and local level.

“GOProud has seen significant growth in the three and a half years since our founding. The GOProud Board has 100% confidence in the management team – led by Executive Director Jimmy LaSalvia, and we look forward to continuing to work with our conservative and libertarian partners to improve the lives of all Americans – including gays and lesbians.”

I am thrilled to expand my role with GOProud and am looking forward to helping grow our grassroots capabilities all across the United States.

  2. I like the idea of getting involved at the state/local level. This is something that needs to be done from the bottom up. We need to stop ignoring the state and local races, particularly in the major metro areas. That is exactly how the Democrats have been eating our lunch. Tip O’Neal: “All politics is local”.

  4. I’m super excited about this. I live in my state’s capital and I’m hoping there will be enough interest in a state level group that one can get up and running here in Arizona.
