Julie Byrne

While traveling to all 50 states before starting college (thanks Mom and Dad!), Julie learned to appreciate the federalist vision of the Founding Fathers. Americans should be able to build communities that reflect our local values and economic needs because one-size-fits-all, national solutions cannot solve most of our problems; they create more because such solutions cannot possibly "fit" every community's interest.  And so, she became a Republican at a very young age.  She met her husband through College Republicans, and went on to intern at the White House during President George W. Bush's administration.

In addition to serving as Chairman of the Warren County Republican Party, Julie is a practicing attorney.  She serves on the leadership board of the Cincinnati Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society and is a member of the Deerfield Township CIC.  She and her husband have two daughters and a son.  In her spare time, Julie still loves to travel, and looks forward to taking her children to all 50 states as well.

Lori Viars

Lori did not grow up with an interest in politics. As a young, married adult, she became active with Citizens for Community Values and Right To Life. When these groups urged members to “call your Congressman,” Lori noticed her Congressman always voted the right way. So Lori called his office and volunteered to stuff envelopes. Her husband once wryly commented, “It snow-balled from there.” After leaving the workforce to be a stay-at-home mom, Lori became more involved in conservative politics--out of a concern for the world her children would grow up in. Higher taxes, out of control spending, attacks on Constitutional rights, and abortions through all nine months of pregnancy prompted Lori to volunteer on campaigns.

Lori has worked on dozens, perhaps hundreds, of campaigns from presidential races to local campaigns for city council--and everything in between. Due to her years of volunteering, she was invited to the White House Christmas Party in 2008. Lori worked to pass Ohio’s fetal homicide law (the Daly Bill, enacted in 1996), the Women’s Right To Know law, and parental notice/parental consent laws. She worked to pass the 2004 Unborn Victims of Violence Act and suggested that it be named "Laci's Law" after Laci Peterson, a pregnant mother from Modesto CA murdered by husband Scott Peterson. Laci’s mother agreed but improved upon that suggestion and the bill was called “Laci & Conner’s Law,” including Laci’s unborn baby boy.

Lori worked to pass the 2004 Ohio Marriage Amendment, the Partial Birth Abortion Ban, and for nine long years helped lead the charge on Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill (signed in 2019). When Roe v. Wade was overturned in 2022, Ohio’s Heartbeat Law went into effect.

Lori has also done animal rescue work and is known to love a good pun or funny meme. She and her husband are empty-nesters who attend Countryside Church.

T.J. Honerlaw

The grandson of two self-employed grandfathers and the son of a self-employed father, T.J. Honerlaw is also living the American dream of being a small business owner.

Building on his father and grandfathers' lifelong Republican voting records and their belief in a small, conservative, unintrusive federal government as the Founding Fathers intended, T.J. was naturally drawn to the TEA Party movement and the desire to defend our God-given liberties & religious freedoms.

T.J.'s passion to get more involved was two-fold. First, he was moved by Franklin Graham's quote, “It is no longer enough for Christians to just vote, now they must get involved". Secondly, after learning more about the Anti-Colonial agenda and Saul Alinsky's two most famous students (Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton) T.J. realized that apathy and ignorance are not acceptable for any true American patriot.

More about T.J. Honerlaw:

  • Born & raised in Mason, Ohio (and currently a member of the Mason City Council)
  • Father of two teenage boys
  • Bible-believing Christian
  • Lifelong Republican
  • Small business owner since 2001
  • Real estate investor
  • Owner of Honerlaw Construction & Remodeling LLC

  • GOP Central Committee member / precinct captain since 2014
  • Appointed to City of Mason Planning Commission in 2015

“Alongside our innate need to connect with our Creator, there is nothing more fundamental to our humanity than the power of individual liberty and the responsibility that necessarily comes with it. Choice and accountability are what give true meaning to the things we do. Statism and collectivism, which are achieved through a big totalitarian government, will always seek to destroy the very things that make us human by replacing God and liberty with government and tyranny. It is our duty to stop that destruction and, in so doing, save our God-given humanity.” - Breighton Smith

Breighton is married to his wife, Stephanie, and they live in the City of Lebanon, Ohio.
