Press Release of February 10, 2008
Former State Representative and newly elected Republican National Committeewoman, Phyllis Woods of Dover, has been asked by Jo Ann Davidson, RNC Co-Chair to head up the NH Women’s Coalition, “The Pink Elephants.” This program is a continuation of the highly successful ‘W’ Stands for Women’s Coalition of the 2004 election.
This is a major effort to expand the number of Republican women affiliated with the coalition and the goal is to recruit over 70,000 new women throughout the country to be a part of “The Pink Elephants.” The goal is to double the number of women who are members of the coalition.
In naming Woods as Chair, Ms. Davidson said, “We know that in the 2004 presidential election, eight million more women voted than men.” “Women voters will make a significant difference in the outcome of the presidential election and we must be prepared with a state-by-state group of strong, energized Republican women ready to help our nominee.”
As a member of the Republican National Committee, Woods has also been appointed to the Committee on Arrangements and the Program Committee which are involved in planning and organizing the Republican National Convention in September in Minneapolis – St. Paul, MN.
Woods, who is also currently serving as Chairman of the Strafford County Republican Committee, will be naming several women throughout the state who will assist her in this effort to compile names and contact information of Republican women in order to keep them up to date on the issues so they can help carry the Republican message. They will be available to work on coordinating events, recruiting women for deployment efforts, volunteering at the Republican National Convention and providing leadership in voter registration and identification efforts as well as the highly successful 72-Hour GOTV program.
