NC Federation of Young Republicans Charters Person County Chapter

RALEIGH — On Wednesday, Young Republicans from across the state unanimously voted to officially charter the Young Republicans of Person County. “We are extremely excited to have the Person County Young Republicans joining our Federation,” said NCFYR Chairwoman Emily Stack. “Their new formation and leadership will help turn the tide in November for counties across the state.”

Often, small rural communities are looked over when growing organizations. The North Carolina Democratic Party proves this statement true. NCDP Chairwoman, Anderson Clayton, also a young democrat and Person County native has failed to uphold her own Young Democrats Chapter in Person County. The Young Democrats of Person County last held a meeting in 2019. NCFYR is looking forward to providing a statewide community to our fellow Young Republicans in Person County and demonstrating the Republican effort to bridge the gap into the rural communities of our great state.

NCGOP Chairman, Jason Simmons, also voiced his support of this new chapter. “It’s exciting to see Steven take the initiative and continue the strong Republican leadership we see in Person County. The Person County Young Republicans will do great work advancing common sense conservative principles and I welcome their organization to our thriving network of young Republicans,” said Simmons.

“By establishing the first ever chapter of the North Carolina Federation of Young Republicans in Person County, we have shown that Young Republicans are more capable of preserving our community values than democrats are at taking them. Person County is the hometown of the current North Carolina Democratic Party Chair, who constantly brags on her success here and in other rural communities across the state. I am confident that by starting the Young Republican chapter, we will become a roadblock in her success and maintain a red state throughout future elections,” said Person County Young Republicans Chair, Steven McFarland.
