Woodbury students have formed a Young Republicans political group as the 2012 election season draws nearer. The group, which was founded by a mix of local high school and college age students aims to provide other young people with an opportunity to get involved in the political process.
The group will host monthly meetings to discuss the news of the day, upcoming elections cycles and how politics and government affect local youth. By doing this, the club hopes to provide students with opportunities to participate in politics at the state and local level.
The Woodbury Young Republicans Club stresses political principles such as economic freedom, personal accountability and a limited government role.
Although connected with the Republican Party, the new group encourages young people to stay informed politically and seeks to provide students with the framework to make educated decisions about their government. The group emphasizes the importance of voting and pushes students to take advantage of their voting rights, even when away at school.
The group is actively seeking new members and will host its kickoff meeting on Saturday September 15, 2012 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the . Pizza and soda will be provided.
