Nancy Fabbri, who once worked for the Tea Party Henry County Republicans, now wants to form what she calls a Conservative Breakfast Club. The 70-year-old former educator, who lives in Hampton, is launching what she calls “a local political think-tank that crosses all partisan lines.”
HAMPTON — Unlike the classes she stood before as a Henry County teacher, Nancy Fabbri says she has no idea who will answer the roll when she calls for members of a new Conservative Breakfast Club.
The former educator, who lives in Hampton, is launching what she calls “a local political think tank that crosses all partisan lines.” She has scheduled the first inaugural session for Saturday, Sept. 1, at 8 :30 a.m., in the Golden Corral, located at 1755 Jonesboro Road, in McDonough.
The mother of six said she and her husband, Louis, a retired Delta mechanic, have tried to exercise their views as Tea Party Henry County Republicans, but have become disillusioned.
“The Henry County GOP made us feel unwelcome. In my opinion it’s like a nasty sorority or fraternity. It has been hijacked by RINOs [Republicans In Name Only]. What we have today is not really conservative, it’s progressive. The Democratic Party has been hijacked by liberals,” she continued.
“I have absolutely no comment,” said Henry County Republican Party Chairman William Herndon, when asked for a response.
“I am a conservative,” Fabbri said, adding that there are Republicans and Democrats who share her brand of conservatism.
Fabbri said her goal is not to have Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians or Independents who just want to vent, but a group in which members genuinely believe they can answer the call to “come let us reason together.”
Fabbri, 70, is a retired English teacher who spent decades working in both the private and public schools in Henry County.
She said the club plans to meet the first Saturday of each month following its inception. Call (770) 946-3112 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
