At the Thursday, August 22nd meeting of the Clark County Republican Central Committee, the Precinct Committee Officers 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 defeated in November. The four areas are:
The Republican Party believes that transparency is essential to good governance.
The Republican Party is deeply committed to the principle that government must be accountable and responsive to the citizens it serves.
The Republican Party believes in the importance of checks and balances on power.
The Republican Party is an advocate for limited and cost-effective government.
The resolution then closes with "Whereas, the Freeholders’ Charter unnecessarily changes this long established form of County government.
Now therefore, be it resolved, we the Clark County Republican Party urge the defeat of the Freeholders’ Charter when it appears on the November 2014 ballot."
