Local Republican seeks participants for women’s political group

Russellville’s Hillary Hall is a professed proud Republican. She’s now leading the charge to unite Republican Women across Franklin County into an established group.

Franklin County Republican Women, as the group will be known, requires a minimum of ten dedicated, registered Republican female voters to be founded. The group will be, Hall said, affiliated with the Alabama Federation of Republican Women as well as the national federation.

“I’m trying to get this club started. We don’t have this in our community, and several other counties in the state of Alabama do,” Hall explained. “I’ve always loved politics. It’s in my blood. I’ve spoken with several people about getting the club started.”

Hall said the base concept of the group is to promote the principles of the Republican party and foster loyalty to those principles and party officials/candidates as well as “increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.”

The group would likely meet monthly, Hall said, and is open to any Republican woman who will be dedicated to the club’s activities. Group meetings will feature state legislators and other representatives providing updates about what’s going on locally and across the state.

Hall said the club will be an asset for political activism among Franklin County women – “anything we can do to keep people involved and knowledgeable about what the Republican party stands for.”
