A REPUBLICAN WAR ON WOMEN? No evidence of one in Clark County. We have twice as many women running for office than the Democrats. Please work to get our Republican women (and men) elected. They cannot possibly meet all the voters on their own. Reach out to the candidates and give them a boost during these last few weeks.Read more
Don't forget we've provided a resource page that includes some great resources to consider when deciding on how you will vote on the proposed county Charter. We recommend you Vote No. Visit our resource page to see why! Also, please checkout the invaluable Vote No On Charter website, the creator of the wonderful images with links on this post.

The Clark County Republican Party is proud to have such a wonderful group of women running for office.
We know that women are strong and capable.
We celebrate the freedom women have in this country to study and work in any field, including raising children full-time.
Women care about a wide range of issues that we fiercely support, including economic growth, which requires efficient government, low taxation, reduced public debt, and responsible regulation.
They promote economic opportunity.
They prefer issues-based debate to slogans and attacks.
They are proud to be members of and leaders in the Republican Party, and we look forward to them working on your behalf and advancing your interests.

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.

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.
