National Committeewoman

Chanel Prunier

Chanel Prunier was elected Republican National Committeewoman for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in May 2013.  She is Executive Director of the Coalition for Marriage and Family—a non-profit educational and advocacy group serving Massachusetts. At 31 years old, she has been involved in Republican politics for over a decade.

Ms. Prunier founded the MA Republican Municipal PAC in 2005 to support candidates for local office and build the Republican Farm Team.  She believes the future of the Republican Party is in winning local and legislative races, to build the party from the ground up, with local candidates and committees.

She served in various leadership roles in state legislative races, including the successful race of former U.S. Senator Scott Brown’s run from State Representative to become a State Senator.  She also played a role in his election to U.S. Senate in 2010 with her early organizational and fundraising support.

Ms. Prunier, in her GOP Municipal PAC, professional, and state Republican Party roles has supported over 80 municipal candidates and been involved in the elections of more than 20 legislators.  It was her fundraising skills, strategic advice, and ground organization in these races that earned her the recognition to be elected Republican National Committeewoman.

She’s knocked on doors for candidates in dozens of different municipalities—from small Republican-leaning towns, to the bluest of cities, and wants to devote her time as National Committeewoman to improving the MA Republican Party’s ground game and organizational efforts.

She’s held leadership positions with the MA College Republicans, MA Federation of Young Republicans, and MA Republican Assembly.

Ms. Prunier is a graduate of Assumption College and resides in Shrewsbury, MA with her Labradoodle named “Sarah Palin.”
