From the Chairman's Desk-August 31, 2015

Write In Liz Pike!

For over 20 years the mighty Linda Smith write-in story has been told with awe and reverence.  It is time for another great story to be born – the Draft Liz Pike story.  With her remarkable communication skills, unmatched energy and charisma she will be a superb spokesman for the county.  She is perfect for the county chair position.  We just need to get the message to all our Republican friends that they must check the box and write-in the name, Liz Pike.  The PAC and the Clark County RepublicanParty have every intention of winning this write-in campaign and proudly telling this story for the next 20 years.  Until a website is up click here to volunteer.  We will send updates with links to the PAC campaign site as it becomes available.  We have just over 60 days to accomplish this, or about 40 more than they did back in 1994.  This is totally within our reach.

Press release:

Clark County Republican Party endorses the Write in Liz Pike for County Chair campaign.

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. 


Join us at Liz Pike’s Shangri-La Farm this Friday to meet the next Governor.  If you have not met Bill Bryant be sure to check out the announcement below and come meet him in person this Friday.  Here is a short introduction video.
