2012 Draft Sarah Committee forms Executive Board

Colorado Springs, CO – 20 April 2009

The 2012 Draft Sarah Committee ( formed an Executive Board of Directors last week which will help guide the committee members and thousands of supporters in their effort and sole mission to encourage Governor Sarah Palin to run for President in 2012.

Formed in mid-November by co-founders Paul Streitz of Darien, CT and David L. Kelly of Colorado Springs, CO, the federally registered draft Committee has grown from just a handful of supporters to thousands across the nation. “Over the last five months we have grown rapidly and now have 27 State Organizers who are working hard on our mission and are the backbone of our grassroots efforts,” said David Kelly, Treasurer of the Committee. Kelly added, “It was time to take the next step in our organization and build a solid infrastructure within our group to help support our volunteers and keep our focus on having Governor Palin as our next President.”

The (9) members of the Executive Board of Directors include Committee members from Alaska to Florida. The Board held an election for officer positions and elected Randy Highsmith as the new Committee Chairman. Highsmith was the Florida State Organizer. He has been heavily active within the Committee since its inception and is ready to lead and begin spreading the positive message about Governor Sarah Palin. Highsmith said, “Governor Palin represents so many everyday average working people. She shares our conservative values and is our standard bearer. That is why I am so passionate about our work and cause here at the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee.”

Paul Streitz, co-founder and previous Committee Chairman, decided to step down from his post. His hard work and untiring efforts to build a solid foundation for the Committee have been greatly appreciated.

Last week, several State Organizers held their first monthly “meet-ups” in their local communities. The meet-ups, which are public informal meetings of Sarah supporters, are intended to give all in attendance an opportunity to fellowship and network. Alaska State Organizer, April Moore, commented, “If brainstorming ideas with a group as committed and passionate as these folks in Fairbanks are is any indication, soon we will not be able to hold these meetings indoors! From our first meeting, we now have a Fairbanks Organizer and a Facebook Organizer. Volunteer, and there is a job you can do to help 2012 Draft Sarah Committee.”

The committee hopes to have State Organizers in every state in the next few months and plans on becoming increasingly active in their communities.
