GOP women hear state party leader

Joyce Krawiec, the new vice chair of the N.C. Republican Party, spoke to the Johnston County Republican Women when they met recently at Festejos on Main Street in Clayton.

Zan Bunn, the new president of the N.C. Federation of Republican Women, introduced Krawiec to the women – and men – on hand for the meeting.

Krawiec is chair of grassroots activism for the N.C. Federation of Republican Women. In that role, she was active in the process to pass a marriage amendment to the N.C. Constitution in 2012. She traveled across the state educating voters about the issue.

“Joyce is a grassroots coordinator for Freedom Works, a national conservative organization,” added Joy Paul of McGee’s Crossroads, who attended the meeting. “She has traveled all over the Southeast to speak to conservative groups. We are very fortunate to have her as part of the NCGOP Executive Board.”

Krawiec said: “Back in the ’60s, I never thought of attending a political rally, when so many of my friends were doing it. Now that I’m in my 60s, I never pass up an opportunity to attend a political rally. In fact, I have a bullhorn in the trunk of my car.”
