SWAC governmental bodies?

At last night's Augusta County Board of Supervisors meeting, Chairman David Beyeler proposed joint dinner meetings with the members of Staunton City Council, Waynesboro City Council, and Augusta County Board of Supervisors so the members of the three governmental bodies could get to know each other better and possibly work regionally for the betterment of the area. It was proposed that they begin with three dates, one each in May, July, and in the Fall.

That is how SWAC-GOP began in this area eight years ago. The Republicans from Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County decided to meet monthly for breakfast so localities could begin to know each other better and, thus, coordinate on Republican issues and events. It has been a resounding success over the years. Hopefully, the SWAC government bodies will have the same success.
