The best comment by a participant at our Toastmasters Informational meeting was how we all need to become more comfortable speaking up in public (we're probably too comfortable on social networks). Too often we let the opportunity to testify slide by because we are not confident in our ability to express ourselves. Seriously, your voice is needed. Please get up your courage and support our issues and candidates every chance you get. Perhaps some of those chances are listed below.
Check out the calendar as there are more non-candidate events that might be of interest to you.

RSVP to ElectLizPike@comcast.net or Phone (360) 281-8720
We have created a resource page here to help educate voters on why the Charter is wrong for Clark County. Please let Kenny know of other resources you think might be helpful for the citizens at KennySmith@clarkrepublicans.com.
A note for handymen and women. There are only a few weeks until the election and then you can help us collect all the campaign signs. But until then, if you carry a screw gun and a hammer you can fix almost every sign problem. Whenever you see a sign in distress, please take a moment to repair it to keep our candidates looking sharp. And be sure to respect the signs of our opponents. Never block their signs or move them. Signs are a big investment for campaigns and for their volunteers that donate time and gas to place them. Really, the very best place for a sign is in your yard. We have them waiting for you at the office (9401 NE Covington Rd). A sign at your home or business will garner votes from those who respect you.
Please attend candidate events to help raise much-needed campaign funds, and become acquainted so that you and your friends can make an informed choice in November. In addition to the events listed below there are more non-candidate events on the calendar that might be of interest to you.

Republican Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs) Urge Defeat of the County Charter
At Thursday night's meeting of the Clark County Republican Central Committee, the PCOs passed a "Resolution to Defeat the Freeholders' Charter". The resolution highlights four principles of good governance and then demonstrates how the proposed charter fails to serve on those points and therefore deserves to be soundly defeated in November. The four areas are:
1. The Republican Party believes that transparency is essential to good governance.
2. The Republican Party is deeply committed to the principle that government must be accountable and responsive to the citizens it serves.
3. The Republican Party believes in the importance of checks and balances on power.
4. The Republican Party is an advocate for limited and cost-effective government.
The PCOs did not stop there. They also supported to a “Resolution Urging a NO Vote on Washington Initiative 594”, and UNANIMOUS passage of a “Resolution Opposing National Common Core Education Standards”. You’ll soon be able to find all of these at the Press Release tab of the website.Read more

The resolution highlights numerous critical flaws in the initiative and demonstrates how it is actually an assault on free people with no hope of reducing the number of firearms in the hands of criminals.

It is with regret and deep sorrow that The Jeanne E. Stewart for County Commissioner Campaign announces the passing of Jeanne’s husband of 40 years, David Stewart. David passed this Tuesday (August 19, 2014) due to complications from heart surgery.
