Don't Miss This Rare Opportunity!

Merry Christmas from the Clark County Republican Party!  We hope you and your loved ones are truly blessed this holiday season.



A rare opportunity!  Purchase your tickets here for our December 30th Night Before New Year's Eve Dinner.   Make sure your friends know of this special chance to meet candidates from around the state, all here together on one night!  You’ll meet Governor Candidate, Bill Bryant; State Auditor candidate, Mark Miloscia; and US Senate candidate, Chris Vance.  We’ll make a New Year’s Resolution to paint Washington State RED in 2016! Republicans hold nearly 80% of the offices in Clark County, but there is only one statewide Republican officeholder, Secretary of State, Kim Wyman.  When you meet these highly qualified candidates on the 30th you’ll be stirred to propel them to victory in 2016.   Please purchase your tickets here today.  Share this with your Facebook friends with this link: https://www.facebook.com/events/760860464018120/.  

A message from Treasurer Michael Delavar:  "If you are a small business owner, I would still appreciate feedback on your credit card processor.  Last week, I typed out the wrong email address (dot org instead of dot com).  If you have any feedback regarding your credit card processor please email me at: michael@michaeldelavar.com.  Thank you!"

We've received a lot of comments about the recent spending bill approved by congress, and social media has been abuzz with sounds of alarm.  Rush Limbaugh has called for disbanding the Republican Party and presidential candidates, such as Ted Cruz, have condemned the deal.  We've seen similar comments from Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Rand Paul, but don't have the links handy at the moment.  Here at your local Clark County Republican Party we want you to know that we are not consulted regarding these issues.  We are just average citizens volunteering our time to promote constitutionally-limited small government.  One thing we can do is work with you to establish a platform for the party and ask our elected servants to adhere by that platform.  That process begins February 20, 2016 at the Caucus.  This year, due to national rule changes, there will not be the delegate battles of the past so we should be able to focus our attention on the platform to explore the purpose of the Republican party.  Please plan to participate on February 20th and please attend our Thursdayevening Caucus Training Sessions where we will help everyone become an effective participant in the caucus and convention process.  The caucus and the training sessions are for you and your neighbors.  Let's make sure every Republican has a voice in the direction of the party and the direction of our country.

Each Thursday evening in January and February, prior to the February 20 caucus, we will offer training sessions regarding the purpose of the caucus and the rules that will be followed to establish the party platform and elect delegates to the county convention.  The development of the party platform begins at the caucus, so it is your opportunity to express what kind of Republican Party you desire.  Our goal is that everyone will be an effective caucus participant and meet neighbors that share their concerns.
