Brenda Campbell, VFRW President

I, along with the rest of the Henry County GOP and many of her personal friends, would like to take an opportunity to congratulate the new president of the Virginia Federation of Republican Women, Brenda Campbell. Brenda is also a very valuable member of the Henry County Republican Unit Committee, as well as a 14 year member of the Ridgeway Town Council.

The VFRW is not a trivial group. It is most certainly not just a social club. This is a hard working team of Republican Women all over Virginia that work constantly to promote Republican Candidates and Republican values. Their mission statement pretty much sums it all up;
Our goal is to provide the opportunity for women from all age groups and walks of life to actively participate in the political arena on national, state and local issues.

We promote political awareness and recruit qualified candidates.

We encourage women to assume leadership roles in government, the Republican Party, and in the community as policy planners, decision makers, and potential candidates.

Congratulations Brenda. You make Henry County and all of the 5th District proud.
