SHELBY COUNTY, ALABAMA - Four Shelby County Executive Committee members were recently recognized by two statewide entities for their leadership and potential to become major players in Alabama politics.
Zan Green, founder of the Rainy Day Patriots, Alabama’s most well-known Tea Party group, joined County Commission Chairman Corley Ellis, and Attorney and Alabama Republican Steering Committee member Matt Fridy in being named one of Alabama’s top 20 Local Leaders by yellowhammerpolitics.com. In addition, SCGOP Vice Chairman Marcelo Munoz was recognized by the Alabama State Republican Party as a “Rising Star.”
The Shelby County Republican Party has a long history of cultivating and supporting conservative leadership, and strives to provide opportunities for those with an aptitude for leadership with the experience and tools necessary for success. “There are a lot of ways for anyone who’s interested in politics to dig in, get some experience under their belt, and succeed in their chosen area of service,” commented SCGOP Chairman Freddy Ard. “We hope to be a county party that not only supports our current political leaders, but also prepares a new generation of conservatives for future service.”
“I am immensely proud that these Executive Committee members were recognized for their hard work, leadership and passion, and would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to each of them for all they do for the party, for Shelby County, and for the State of Alabama,” continued Ard.
Shelby County is the premier Republican county in Alabama, with all thirty-six county offices with jurisdiction (excluding municipal officials elected non-partisan) held by Republicans.
