Clark County Republican Party


Dear Candidate --

As a resource to our community, to your campaign, and to the many potential campaign volunteers and donors looking for a candidate they can assist, the Clark County Republican Party has created a survey that will help voters, donors and volunteers learn your philosophical outlook and the reasons you are seeking office in the upcoming elections. This is a chance to broadcast your views on a foundational level to the entire voting public on critical issues affecting our county today.

Your thorough and timely responses will be shared throughout the county as a means to increase people's insight into your stances as a candidate and as a person. The deadline for us to receive your completed survey and publish and broadcast your responses is July 9, 2013.

We appreciate your effort in this endeavor and look forward to helping the voters of Clark County get to know more about you.
