Vancouver, WA  8/27/16:    The Clark County Republican Central Committee provided guidance to voters Saturday by deciding which candidates to endorse in the November elections.  The Central Committee is the governing body of the Party consisting of the Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs) elected or appointed per state law.

All Republican candidates were invited to attend.  They were first nominated for the position by the PCOs within their district, that vote was consequently ratified by the entire body whereupon the candidate was invited to speak.  All Republican candidates received the nomination of the PCOs on Saturday.

After all the nominations and speeches were concluded, the PCOs met privately to discuss endorsements.  They had three options:

ENDORSE:           The party can actively support the candidate and the candidate has access to party resources.

NO POSITION:   The party will neither actively support nor actively oppose the candidate.  Access to party resources is limited.  This is the default position when the Precinct Committee Officers do not vote to “Endorse” or to “Oppose”.  If an endorsement motion fails, the position is “No Position” unless a specific motion to oppose passes.

OPPOSE:              The party MAY actively oppose the candidate but is not obligated to do so.  No access to party resources.

Following are the results of the meeting:

For more information, contact Chairman Kenny Smith at 360-521-8565 or KennySmith@ClarkRepublicans.com.

Some are surprised that PCOs don''t just automatically endorse all Republican candidates. Many who run for PCO do so when they see how broken our government has become and desire to commit time and energy to repair it.  Most PCOs do not wish to be mere cheerleaders.  I am very proud of the PCOs for the hours they spent deliberating and the principled stands they took, knowing they would face criticism.  For those candidates not earning an endorsement, it should be noted that their opponent was officially opposed so there should be no question of who the PCOs prefer for the position.

The county party is where grassroots volunteers do the work.  There are no paid employees here.

Lee Davis, longtime Republican volunteer and Precinct Committee Officer died August 12th.  He was 81.  Lee had a long history of service to the community, to candidates, and to the Party.  Two months ago the PCOs honored him with a resolution highlighting some of his many accomplishments.  We need more volunteers to step up and take his place.  We offer condolences to his family and friends.

Our booth at the fair has been very well received with scores of voters signing up to get involved (and take their picture with Trump).

Want to meet Trump staff?  For those wanting to connect with the Trump campaign there is a very good opportunity 6pm tomorrow at our HQ, 9401 NE Covington Rd.  Washington State Trump campaign staff will be on hand to show you how you can help.  See the “Coming Events” section below for more information.

Governor candidate, Bill Bryant (Blue Shirt) calling voters from HQ during our GOTV effort for the primary.

Don’t make any other plans for October!  We mostly hear about the presidential race, but we have 23 other contests to win in November.  We need your help, especially in October when ballots are in voter's hands.  Please mark your calendar, “Volunteer at Clark County Republican HQ” for those weeks.  Don’t schedule a trip out of town!  You are needed right here in Clark County.  Candidates have told us we have the best GOTV phone banking organization they have seen in the state.  The phone center is only one of the ways you could choose to help.

Don’t want to wait until October?  Perfect!  We need your assistance right now with voter contact.  Let us show you how.  Ask Kenny 360-521-8565 KennySmith@ClarkRepublicans.com.

From the Chairman's Desk-August 2, 2016

ELECTION DAY!

The Clark County Republican Party is guided by the 2016 Clark County Republican Party Platform and Core PrinciplesNote that our platform states: We dedicate time, talent, and efforts to electing those candidates who represent these principles and commit to implementing them into public policy.

If you have items for the newsletter or calendar, send them to media@clarkrepublicans.com.  Please visit us at Republican HQ where we have yard signs and literature for many candidates.   Our address is 9401 NE Covington Rd., Vancouver and we are open M-F noon-4pm.  360-695-1609.

Today is Election Day!  Please get those ballots in!  Candidates have been working very hard to earn your vote.  Please do your part.  If you need help give us a call at 360-695-1609.

Do I have to vote in every race?  NO!  Leave races undecided if you must, but turn in that ballot!

ARGH!  This voter’s pamphlet doesn’t show all the candidates!  That’s right. You have to go online to find the statewide voter’s guide.  We set up an easy link at www.VOTES2016.com.  Or give us a call and we can discuss them with you.  360-695-1609.

Got time to actually see the candidates and hear their pitch?  http://www.tvw.org/video-voters-guide/

Hey, there is no Republican in this race!  In the 49th Legislative District there is no Republican listed in Position 1 State Representative (the one with just 2 Democrats).  We encourage you to WRITE IN Don Van Dyke.  He has registered as a write in candidate and would appreciate your vote.  He served this year as a delegate to the county and state conventions and has been an excellent volunteer for the Party.

Will Clark County lag the state in voter turnout again?  We are one of the counties that can overcome the liberal King County vote if we just improve our voter turnout.  Candidates, Bill Bryant and Michael Waite made calls from our call center on Sunday and were very impressed with our high tech operation.  Please stop in today and let us show it to you.   Today is the last day to preview it before fall.  9401 NE Covington Rd. Vancouver.

Primary Night Victory Party and you’re invited!  Representative Liz Pike and candidates Vicki Kraft and Eileen Quiring want to thank you for your support tonight in Brush Prairie.  Children are welcome to attend.

Meet Thousands of voters at the Fair booth: The Clark County Fair runs from August 5th through the 14th.  We still have shifts to fill.  Please contact Katja at 360-771-4858 wa4liberty@gmail.com to get on the schedule.

"This ballot is WAY TOO complicated".  That is what we hear daily.  Please note that Clark County is only one of 10 counties in the state that even sends out a voter's guide.  It does not include the statewide candidates.  To find the statewide voter's guide you must go to the Secretary of State's website.  The guide will be found here.  There are other resources in this newsletter, including candidate websites in the list of candidates below.


Last year's call center photo

Here’s what your Clark County Republican Party is up to right now:  Ballots are coming in and are being processed.  This is the critical time in the election cycle to get all our friends to vote.  Here are some of the ways we are helping Republicans.  Please see where you can help out:

Election Observers:  We have certified Election Observers at the elections office each day monitoring ballots coming in and being processed.  If you are a certified observer you should be getting regular updates on the schedule.  Contact Kenny if you are not getting updates: KennySmith@ClarkRepublicans.com 360-521-8565

Call Center workers:  The call center is operating 1:00 – 8:30pm each day (11am on Saturday).  Contact KennySmith@ClarkRepublicans.com 360-521-8565 to get on the schedule.  This is HIGH PRIORITY for the next week.

Candidate parade walkers and canvassersThanks to everyone who helped in the parades!  Continue walking now for your favorite candidates by canvassing with them.  Their contact information is listed below in the list of candidates.

Identifying Republicans with WSRP’s SW WA Field Director:  Volunteers are working with Hal Palmer from WSRP to identify voters in a door to door effort.  If you want to work with the best, contact Hal at 360-431-2733 hal.equitynw@gmail.com.  He has a ton of experience and needs you!  If you have never done this type of outreach before you will be surprised at how receptive the voters will be and how much better you’ll feel knowing you’re getting your exercise and saving the country at the same time!  Hal will meet a group at 10am this Saturday at HQ.  Come join him if you are not already occupied with campaign activity.

Meeting Thousands of voters at the Fair booth: This hasn’t actually started yet, but the Clark County Fair runs from August 5th through the 14th.  The fair is open from morning to night and we have to have it staffed the entire time.  Lots of volunteers are needed.  Please contact Katja at 360-771-4858 wa4liberty@gmail.com to get on the schedule. 

 

National Delegate, Joel Mattila wants to thank you:  "My emotions overwhelmed me as each state announced its votes for Mr. Trump. I didn't realize how much I had invested in this campaign emotionally and I had to gulp each time as votes were announced. When New York put him over the top, the hall erupted I was completely overcome. I am so proud to be involved in this movement that is more revolution than campaign. Jump on board the Trump Train and let's work together to Make America Great Again!"  Join Joel (other national delegates should join us too) this Friday evening 7:30pm at HQ.  Details below in the Coming Events section for July 29th.  Here is a story where Joel is featured: http://q13fox.com/2016/07/20/meet-the-delegates-joel-mattila-stands-tall-for-trump/

Bill Bryant to join our call center, in person on July 31st! Call Center workers will get to work beside Governor Candidate, Bill Bryant on July 31st between 5:00 – 8:00pm.  Other candidates are expected to participate.  Come join us!  See Bill Bryant’s Big Blue Bus Tour Whistle Stop Schedule here: http://www.billbryantforgovernor.com/bustour?utm_campaign=icymi_bus_all&utm_medium=email&utm_source=billbryant.
