THANK YOU LDD VOLUNTEER TEAM!
I think this year’s volunteer team might have been the largest ever. Vicki Caldwell-Kraft, CCGOP Secretary and chairman of the event, reports that there were around 50 volunteers! Good work, team! You made it look easy (just kidding, it looked like a lot of work—thanks). The program booklets were in full color and all the decorations were top notch. The room was absolutely beautiful and the room was packed!
A BIG THANK YOU FROM THE PROCUREMENT TEAM!
To everyone who contributed to the success of the event by donating auction items, the LDD team thanks you sincerely. Your gifts were phenomenal. The silent auction was beautiful, the live auction items were fantastic and the raffle was well stocked! Pictures will be posted on our facebook site.

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS SEEK APPLICANTS FOR BOARD OF EQUALIZATION
The Board of County Commissioners is seeking applicants to fill two seats on the Clark County Board of Equalization. This is an effective way for you to serve the community. Here's the notice for details.
OPEN BOARD POSITIONS
Now that LDD is behind us we will work diligently to fill the new board positions we announced recently. If you would like to serve on the Clark County Republican Board of Directors maybe one of these positions is for you. Or if you don’t want the lead position, maybe there are certain responsibilities listed that you would like to perform.
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ELECTION YEAR.
This is the year where every Congressional Representative, every WA State Representative and nearly every Clark County elected position is up for election. Our candidates will need support as they cannot possibly meet all the voters in their district, although I’m sure they’ll try. Please look for opportunities to introduce them, contribute financially to their campaigns and volunteer.
Contact me any time if I can help you support our candidates,
Kenny Smith, Chairman
Clark County Republican Party
