Chairman Raja's Statement Regarding the Election Results

Dear Friend,
 
On behalf of the Republican Committee of Allegheny County, I would personally like to thank all of you for your tireless work and dedication. Tuesday was a great night for Donald Trump and for Republicans nationally and here in Allegheny County.  
 
Congratulations and thanks to all our team of volunteers for their dedication in the campaign and for delivering a positive message throughout the region. Most importantly, the people have spoken, demanding security abroad and at home, true economic recovery, and healthcare that works.
 
I offer my heartfelt thanks to all of our Republican candidates, up and down the ticket, regardless of whether they prevailed, for stepping forward and offering public service in a very challenging time. It takes commitment, courage, stamina and public spirit to stand up for what you believe in and to run the gauntlet of campaigning for office.
 
As a Party we are grateful for the voters' confidence, and we turn now to the large task of working to make America Great Again.
 
Sincerely,
 
Raja

Words of Wisdom

"We know that in government bad ideas live forever. That's exactly why government should never act as an investor or a savior. Business sectors and economies don't grow if the laggards are given a lifelong lifeline. Lest we forget, Silicon Valley's wealth is not a function of all of its businesses succeeding. It thrives precisely because most of its start-ups fail."
