If the diners at the annual Lincoln Day Dinner thought it was going to be a quiet evening of dinning and laidback speeches, then they had be surprised when the aptly named Rose Strong took to the podium and gave a speech that had all in the room paying close attention.

Rose is a 30 year veteran of local and national politics, and her speech left no doubt that she has been successful in overcoming any barriers put in her way because she was a woman, a black, and originally ran for office in the deep south.

Rose briefly touched on a background that has included being the former Deputy Director of Intergovernmental Affairs in the Department of Transportation, the first Black Republican woman elected to the City Council of Columbus, George, and has also been an observer of elections in third world countries, and a strategist for the Black Republican Women International, to name but a few of her accomplishments

In her speech to the Lincoln Day Dinner guests, Rose stressed the importance of the local Republicans continuing to work to get their message out, and the importance of election reform that will insure the next state election is not based on improper vote counting; in short, keep us the fight, and the fight is not over. Rose received a standing ovation for her speech.
