The Forsyth County Republican Party is thrilled to present Congressman Matt Gaetz as the keynote speaker during our Lincoln Day Dinner on Friday, October 27th at Legacy Stables and Events Center located at 4151 Thomasville Road.

Congressman Gaetz represents Florida’s First Congressional District and serves on the House Judiciary and Armed Services Committees. As an outspoken and fearless member of congress, he’s leading the charge to uncover corruption within the Department of Justice and the FBI. As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Gaetz helped expose the failure of the Department of Homeland Security to secure our southern border and Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ complete surrender of U.S. national security to drug cartels, illegal immigration, and human trafficking.
Additionally, the congressman defends law enforcement, and crime victims, from radical leftists calling for our nation to defund the police. He also helped expose the deep of corruption of President Biden, his family, and his administration. Further, Congressman Gaetz has worked tirelessly to expose the expose the FBI’s unconstitutional influence over Big Tech and social media platforms.
And as a member of the Armed Services Committee, the Congressman fights against leftist military officials working to bring “wokeism” into the U.S. armed forces.
Congressman Gaetz is a national conservative leader unlike any we’ve seen in a long time, and you do not want to miss what he has to say to North Carolina republicans. We’re looking forward to seeing you all on October 27th!

PATRICIA SHOUSE SPOKE AT BOARD OF ELECTION MEETING
Patricia Shouse spoke at the meeting of the Forsyth County Board of Elections on August 22, 2023 in the public comments section of the meeting. She mentioned that as a Chief Judge during many different elections, she has had numerous voters express distrust with the voting machines. She also mentioned that several computer operators have told her that it is no problem to program those machines to get the outcome they desire and it not be obvious to the general observer. She suggested:
- To declare a voting holiday and have only that one day for voting.
- To use only printed paper ballots.
- Do away with the expensive voting machines.
- Hand count the ballots.
- Declare the winners the same evening.
- Increase public trust by using this method.
