Robin Lumb Appointed County Manager of Duval Republican Party
Lenny Curry, Chairman of the Republican Party of Duval County, today announced the appointment of Robin Lumb to the newly created position as the party's County Manager. The position was established by Curry for the purpose of streamlining the party's Get Out The Vote effort in 2010.
"Our goal is a massive turnout of Republican and independent voters in 2010 for the purpose of electing Republican candidates to every statewide office and in every contested local and legislative race," said Curry. "We need one person in charge of this effort. We believe Robin Lumb is the ideal person for this job."
Lumb, who writes a regular opinion column for The Jacksonville Observer, organized the Party's two Town Hall meetings on health care reform and was the CFO of its Lincoln Day Dinner. He's served on the Republican Executive Committee since his election in 2004 and will now be responsible for enhancing the party's organizational structure for all precinct level voter contact and for directing all field operations, voter outreach and special events for 2010.
"We have scores of outstanding volunteers and precinct representatives who've devoted countless hours to the Republican Party and its candidates," Lumb said. "I'm looking forward to working with them and learning from them as we continue to build upon the enduring precinct level organization that has served us so well in all elections of the past decade."
"The Republican Party is on the move," Lumb said when describing his expectations for 2010. "The Republican Party that I see today is resurgent, reenergized and ready to reestablish itself as the reliable ally of common sense conservatism."
