Husted representative speaks to Republican Men’s Club

GREENVILLE – Stewart Kitchen who serves as Western Regional Director for Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted was the featured speaker at the regularly scheduled meeting of the Darke County Republican Men's Club. 

Kitchen is an Ohio native from Kenton having been raised on his family's Quarter Horse and Livestock Farm. Kitchen broke from tradition to practice twirling his grandfather's drum major baton in the barn. He went on to become the drum major for The Ohio State Marching Band while studying for his B.S. in Agricultural Education and Leadership. 

He noted the Republican Party has much to work on with the youth of our country. "That is another thing we need to stress with our youth all they are hearing in their schools is how great it is that there is going to be free health care in the country. People don't teach our youth of our country about taxes, how they are going to have to pay taxes," stated Kitchen when asked about the Health Care Law, "About how they pay their taxes. They are not learning that sort of thing in school. They are not learning how to take care of their finances. If there is one thing I think we could do that could teach people more about being responsible Americans it is to start teaching our people about how the real world works. It's not all about bringing the world together and living in one big happy world, there is responsibility out there and they need to learn that. We need to find a way to get our education system to start treating those things."

When asked about the lawsuit that was recently filed against Secretary of State Husted, Kitchen said that he was still learning about the details of the case but he believed it was a result of there being a difference between federal and state regulations as they relate to voting.

The Darke County Republican Men's Club meets at 8 a.m. on the third Saturday of every month, except August, in the Staff Cafeteria of the Brethren Home Retirement Community. Breakfast is available for a $6 donation. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be Sept. 15 and the speaker will be Sandra Brasington, Western Ohio Regional Liaison for Governor John R. Kasich. For further details, contact President Hershel Fee, 547-0611, or email DCRMPresident@darkegop.org.
