Nationally recognized volunteer activist Scott Presler has joined the growing list of speakers at the full-day GOP State Convention Saturday, November 18 at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Burlington.
Scott Presler (@ScottPresler) is a leading volunteer and activist who has traveled the country helping Republican candidates and local parties build the volunteer base needed to be competitive and win.
Presler was a major contributor in the voter registration drive that helped the state of Florida completely flip from a Democrat to a Republican majority among registered voters. He was also on the ground this year canvassing in Louisiana to help Jeff Landry, the Republican candidate for Governor win his election early with an outright win of 51% and avoided a run off election.
”I’m excited to have Scott join us in Vermont,” said VT Chairman Paul Dame. “He is one of the hardest working Republican volunteers in the country right now. He is going to bring some experience, perspective and energy that our party members need to hear in order to get ready for the 2024 elections. He has been a huge advocate for early voting, and area Republicans have fallen behind on after COVID, and that message has helped Republicans to win some races and begin to close the gap in others.”
Also speaking is Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform. Former U.S. Senator from New Hampshire and Ambassador to New Zealand Scott Brown will be a guest along with his band.
Grover Norquist (Twitter: @GroverNorquist) is president of Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), a taxpayer advocacy group he founded in 1985 at President Reagan’s request. ATR works to limit the size and cost of government and opposes higher taxes at the federal, state, and local levels and supports tax reform that moves towards taxing consumed income one time at one rate.
Ambassador Brown first rose to national fame when he became the first Republican in 30 years to represent the state of Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate after the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy. When congress was considering a massive overhaul of the healthcare system, Sen. Brown’s win in a special election changed the trajectory of the Affordable Care Act.
Later in 2017 Brown was appointed by the President to serve as the U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand, where he became one of the longest tenured ambassadors of the Trump administration.
