AFNC Moves Forward, Works Together for America's Children

Boulder, CO -- The America First Party's National Committee completed a fruitful in-person meeting Saturday, October 25 in Des Plaines, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The Committee elected new officers and standing committee chairmen, adopted changes to the party's Constitution, and began laying plans for the Party's 2004 National Convention.

The National Committee elected Mr. John Francis as its next National Chairman. Mr. Francis, who is a founding member of the Party, has led the America First Party of Ohio since April 2002.

Mr. Francis explained his dedication to the America First Party: "We're building a new party to protect the rights and the freedom of our children and grandchildren. When my kids and grand kids ask me what I was doing when the Constitution was under attack, as it is now, I want to be able to tell them we did our best for them. I only have to look at my kids and my grand kids to know that I must do everything that I can to protect their future."

Mr. Francis expressed his desire to hit the ground running: "We have put in place today a plan to build this party organization in every state, and every county of this country. We have our work cut out for us, but with the Grace of God and the love many people have for this great country, we will succeed."

Dan Charles, the Party's Chairman Emeritus, expressed enthusiasm about his successor's election: "Mr. Francis has the drive to continue the progress that our Party has already made. He will provide dynamic leadership for the National Committee and the party rank and file. We all look forward to working with him to ensure the future of the Party and this great nation."

The National Committee also elected Jonathan Hill of Massachusetts as its new vice-chairman. Mr. Charles was tapped to chair the Rules Committee. Mr. L. Thomas White of Massachusetts was elected chair of the Party Building Committee. Mr. Larry Carroll of Colorado was chosen to head up the Platform Committee. Mr. John Hey, Mrs. Maureen McHugh, Mrs. Romelle Winters, and Mr. Jonathan Hill were retained as National Secretary, National Treasurer, Public Relations Chairman, and Finance Committee Chairman respectively.

The National Committee adopted several amendments to the party's Constitution, which were needed to protect the party and its platform. John Hey, the party's National Secretary and outgoing Rules Committee Chairman, commented: "These Constitutional amendments, coupled with the new party building strategy we have devised, will ensure that new state party affiliates come on board already active and committed to building the party into a force to be reckoned with."
