Roanoke, Va- Today Young Republican Federation of Virginia First Vice Chair Dan Webb announced his candidacy for YRFV Chairman with a major endorsement:
“I have had the pleasure of serving in the Young Republican Federation of Virginia in various capacities over the last five years. Starting as the Secretary and then Vice Chair of the Lynchburg Area Young Republican club, and as my job took me to a new city, becoming the founding Chairman of the Roanoke Valley Young Republican club. In 2013 I was honored to join the executive board in a new capacity as First Vice Chair.
At the last YRFV meeting Chairman John Scott announced that he would not be seeking re-election. Chairman Scott set a great example of dedication to the Federation.
Today I am announcing my candidacy for Chairman of the Young Republican Federation of Virginia to continue that dedicated service.
My vision for the YRFV is to help cultivate a culture of cooperative action among our members. If we want the principles we hold most dear to become a policy reality we have to work together to win politically. My driving motivation is to see us come together as an organization and work effectively for our Republican nominees.
Our team is already gaining momentum and I am honored to have Senator Mark Obenshain’s endorsement of my candidacy:
‘My friend Dan Webb has worked tirelessly over the years expanding and growing the Republican Party here in the Commonwealth. He’s spent countless hours knocking on doors, making phone calls, and working hard for conservative candidates at every level of government. In 2013, Dan was a tireless supporter, effectively serving as a surrogate across Virginia and volunteering on behalf of the statewide campaigns.
In his role as First Vice Chairman for the Young Republican Federation of Virginia, Dan has been part of a successful leadership team that has implemented a growth-oriented plan to form new clubs and grow existing chapters. He has my full support in his bid to be the next Chairman of the Young Republican Federation of Virginia.’
YRFV Action has put together a great team of candidates which we’ll be announcing soon. We look forward to discussing our vision and goals for the Federation in the coming weeks (You can like our facebook page to see future announcements).
I humbly ask for your support as I seek the office of Chairman of the Young Republican Federation of Virginia.”
Dan lives with his wife Rita and their daughters Abigail and Daisy in Roanoke, VA where he serves as Congressman Bob Goodlatte’s Campaign Manager. He has also served as Vice Chairman of the Lynchburg Area Young Republicans, and was the founding Chairman of the Roanoke Valley Young Republicans. He currently serves the YRFV as First Vice Chair.
