Jeff Monroe

In addition to being the Chair of the Warren County Republican Party, Jeff has a history of doing pretty cool stuff.

He has run police academies in two separate states, worked as a researcher for a crime policy think tank, he’s an author and has consulted governments in multiple states and countries. Jeff is a former college professor and was the Director of the Criminal Justice Graduate Program at Xavier University.

Currently he serves as President of 22three, a firearms retail store, an e-commerce business and a training group. He also leads Think22three, a research organization that focuses on firearms violence and public policy. 

22three has its origin in a simple piece of advice Jeff got from his grandfather. What was it? "Don't get too smart." There's a lot of wisdom in that statement. So, after earning his Ph.D. and becoming a professor and expert in gun control policy and homicide rates, Jeff launched two ventures. 22three, Inc., a firearms outfitter, and Think22three, a think tank, both aim to increase the number of households with firearms. Jeff is a bit of renaissance man who is just as comfortable working an algorithm, sitting in the back of the room, or speaking in front of 1000.

Politically, Jeff served on Lebanon City Council from 2005 to 2013. He has Chaired both the Warren County Republican Central and Executive Committees and is currently Chairman of the Warren County Board of Elections.

In his spare time, Jeff loves hanging out with his wife Wendy (who currently serves on Lebanon City Council) and his two daughters.

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, Matthew, through College Republicans, and went on to intern at the White House during President George W. Bush's administration.

In addition to serving as Vice Chair of the Warren County Republican Party, she is on the leadership board of the Cincinnati Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society and is a member of the Deerfield Township Finance Committee.  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.

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
• Tea Party enthusiast since 2009
• Former board member of Warren County Liberty Alliance
• Ted Cruz delegate
• Volunteered on multiple campaigns
• GOP Central Committee member / precinct captain since 2014
• Appointed to City of Mason Planning Commission in 2015
• NRA member
• Additional classes & seminars: Building Blocks for Liberty and Institute on the Constitution

Rebekah Leitner

From a young age Rebekah was reading books like "Real Citizenship" and helped teach its principals to others. We have the freedom and privilege to be apart of our government and we should work to keep in that way for many more generations, just as our forefathers did. As a relative to the Statesmen Benjamin Franklin, this love and appreciation for our country is deeply rooted. Ben Franklin's parents fled to America for religious freedom, and that is one thing I hope never changes.

Rebekah moved to Warren County when she was 10 years old, and it's been home ever since! Rebekah loved going to the Horse parade, Applefest, the Lebanon Library and participating in 4-H. Growing up on a farm, and milking goats and raising ducks taught her a lot about life.

Upon graduating from college Rebekah helped launch the National Non-profit "Save the Storks" and started her first business. If you want to see her eyes light up ask her to talk about her work in the pro-life sphere and how she traveled 12,000 miles in 40 days with Christian Rock bands to further the mission to reach abortion vulnerable women. Thousands of women have chosen life as a result of the ministry... so far!

Supporting businesses through marketing and Google services is what Rebekah and her team is doing to improve the financial strength of our communities, which of course means growth and new jobs!

Bill Dowden

Bill Dowden and his wife Rowena have been Hamilton Township residents since 2011.  They have four adult children and thirteen grandchildren.  Bill is a Butler University graduate and Rowena holds a Masters Degree from Indiana University.

 Bill, an active conservative Republican in Indiana for many years, joined the Warren County GOP Century Club soon after arriving in Hamilton Township.  He was recently re-elected to the Warren County Republican Executive Committee and then elected to the Board of Directors.

Before becoming a volunteer for the Republican precinct in which he lived,  he was President of the Indiana Americans for Conservative Action.  In addition to his full time career as a livestock broker, he spent many as hours as the elected Precinct Committeeman, delegate to the State conventions, and member of the  Indiana GOP Platform Committee.  After helping elect many good Republicans to public office, he was persuaded to run for a district seat on the Indianapolis-Marion County Council.  Each District had approximately 38,000 population, and the elections were very partisan – terms were for four years.  He was elected to eight terms on the Council, and chaired the Council Committee on Public Safety and Criminal Justice twenty-five of those thirty-two years.

A veteran of the Korean War,  Bill holds fast to the Marine motto of “Semper Fidelis,” but also the oft-quoted motto of “God, Country, Corps.”    He describes himself as “Christian, Conservative, Republican” – in that order.  He views local government and honest grass roots politics as the foundation of good government.
