Supports Rieley for GOP chair


I have known Greg Rieley since I started the fourth grade at Breckinridge Elementary School in Fincastle. He is a very intelligent man with strong character, and he cares deeply about the people and heritage of Botetourt County and the conservative principles that made our nation great. Greg is a leader with initiative, and he is not afraid to confront issues in the right way and work hard to deliver solutions.

I believe Greg Rieley would be a strong, excellent chair of the Botetourt County Republican Party. I encourage you to support him with your vote on June 15 from 5-7 p.m. at Read Mountain Middle School.

Rieley has longitudinal perspective on Botetourt issues


I would like to recommend Greg Rieley, a Botetourt native son, for the office of Republican Committee chair for Botetourt County, in the upcoming June 15 election. Greg is a staunch fiscal conservative and a lifelong Republican with the private sector financial experience needed to lead the county’s Republican Party chapter in a way that will acknowledge the voices of all the resident Republicans invested in the county.

With ancestral roots reaching back past the Revolutionary War, to include the founding of two estates in Blue Ridge and Daleville, and a resident of Botetourt his entire life, Greg has a longitudinal perspective on the issues existing in Botetourt, the needs of county residents, and the various cross-sections of Republicans in the county. Greg has no conflict of interest in seeking the chairman position; he has not served in any office advocating for the government. Greg’s maturity, expertise, and roots mean he will be a sincere and knowledgeable guide for the Botetourt County Republican Party. I will be voting for him on June 15, and I ask that my fellow Botetourt County registered Republicans prefile to vote and vote so as well!
