Sean L. Conner: Candidate for DCYR Chairman

Sean L. Conner has announced his run for Chairman of the DC Young Republicans!

I hope this message finds you well. After serious consideration, I am happy to announce my candidacy for the Chairmanship of the DC Young Republicans (DCYR) and ask for your support!

When I began attending DCYR meetings and events in 2007, I did because I wanted to connect with other young, like minded Republicans. Looking back, there are so many memories that can be traced to my time in DCYR – making great friends, growing professionally, and being able to contribute to advancing the Republican message, both inside and outside of the District.

Many believe our party must connect better with folks in our youth demographic, communities of color, and the working class. We can do this with strong leaders that have the experience, relationships, and the drive to work hard at this task. We’ve got to, as RNC Chairman Steele said in his acceptance speech, “bring this party to every corner, every boardroom, every neighborhood, every community, and we're going to say to friend and foe alike, we want you to be a part of us…”

With that in mind, if elected, we will focus on three major goals for DCYR -- significantly increasing membership, strengthening professional development, and making our chapter the premiere young adult organization for Republicans. In the coming weeks you will be receiving more information on how I believe we can accomplish each of these “big goals.” In the coming weeks, I will be reaching out on an individual basis to hear concerns, answer questions, and take suggestions for how we can continue to move DCYR forward.

I am excited to have the endorsements and support of both our National Committee members – Rachel Hoff and Richard Counts. Both of them have been strong leaders, contributing to bout our chapter and representing our interest at the national level as part of the YRNF. In closing, I hope you will add your support to theirs.


Sean L. Conner

Candidate for DCYR Chairman
Chairman, Professional Development Committee, DCYR



"With all the relationships Sean has developed and respect he's built in DC politics and at the National YR level, Sean will be the perfect leader to bring growth and progress to the DCYR."

- Rachel Hoff, DCYR National Committeewoman & Candidate for YRNF Chairman

"Just want to say that it’s been a pleasure to serve with Sean over the last two years on various Repbulican Boards and Committees. From his time on the YRNF Minority Outreach board, to his service on the DCYR Professional Development Committee, Sean has proven himself to be an intelligent, steadfast worker who never ceases to bring optimism and excitement to each and every endeavor. Sean’s intelligence, dedication, and displayed party loyalty make him the ideal candidate to take the DCYR’s to a new level. It is with knowledge of these qualities, his experience within the party, and his wide range of political contacts, that I call on all DCYR members to place their vote for Sean Conner as the next District of Columbia Young Republican Chairman."

- Richard Counts, DCYR National Committeeman
