For Immediate Release August 28th 2015
CCRP Endorses Write In Liz Pike campaign, and additional candidates, in the 2015 General Election.
On Wednesday, August 26, 2015, the Clark County Republican Party Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs) considered their options in the County Chair race.
They met next door to Shared Hope International, the acclaimed non-profit organization founded by Clark County’s last victorious write-in candidate, Linda Smith.
Finding themselves without a conservative candidate in the race for county chair, the Republican PCOs overwhelmingly endorsed the Write In Liz Pike for County Chair campaign. They took the additional step to officially oppose the candidacies of Marc Boldt and Mike Delasandro for the same position.
Noting that the conservative credentials of Liz Pike are unquestioned, and that she has stated she would serve if elected through this draft campaign, over 79% of the voting PCOs expressed their belief that writing in Liz Pike for County Chair was the best option for the future of Clark County government.
This is exciting news for conservatives of Clark County who are frustrated by the lack of a Republican on the November ballot. The success of this campaign will depend on each voter recruiting others to write in the name of Liz Pike in the County Chair race.
We are confident that a universally respected leader like Liz Pike is the winning formula for Clark County.
Other endorsements on Wednesday included Julie Olson for County Councilor, District 2; Dick Rylander, Battle Ground School Board; Rosemary Fryer, Vancouver School Board; Lisa Ross, Port Commission. Prior endorsements include Frank Decker for Evergreen School Board and Dan Coursey for Washougal City Council.
