From The Chairman's Desk- July 20, 2014

Ready, Set, Vote! 

 

Watch our calendar and send event announcements to media@ClarkRepublicans.com especially when you see opportunities for our candidates.  

 

What a great weekend!  Battle Ground Harvest Days Classic Car Cruise on Friday, then Harvest Days Parade and Cruise the Gut in Vancouver on Saturday.  We were there for much of it and have photos for you here.  If you have photos to add please send them to media@ClarkRepublicans.com.

Thanks again to Joel Olson Trucking for a beautiful truck and a terrific driver!

Ballots are here!  The August 5th Primary Election narrows the field to the top 2 candidates.  Help us get our candidates solidly in place with your vote! 

Q: “But some of these races have only 2 candidates now.  Do they really need our vote?” 

A: Absolutely!   If our candidates can distinguish themselves in the primary, they will garner support for election victory in November.  Please support our Republican candidates with your vote.  Ask your friends and neighbors to turn in their ballots.

To learn about our Republican candidates look for their contact information here.  Also check out CVTV for forums and interviews.  Click on both the “Files” & “Folder” links to watch (you don’t have to buy a copy).  Couv.com has Sheriff interviews here and a summary video of the NAMI forum here.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:  The Clark County Republican Party needs volunteers for:

Office Staffing—Contact Brenda Poletti poletfam@yahoo.com.  Brenda has the office staffed every weekday from 9-5 but would love to have weekend and overflow helpers.  If you can take a regular shift or be on-call, please contact Brenda.

Fair Booth—Contact Katja at KatjaDelavar@ClarkRepublicans.com or Brenda poletfam@yahoo.com to volunteer at the booth.

Event Team—Contact Katja at KatjaDelavar@ClarkRepublicans.com.  Katja is the events coordination executive.  If you would like to help us with events let Katja know you will join her team.

GOTV—Join us as we Get Out the Vote!  Contact Kelly Harms, volunteer coordination executive at KellyHarms@ClarkRepublicans.com or if you wish to help us with our canvassing or phone center efforts.

Sign Builders We have an immediate need for people to erect 4X8 campaign signs.  If you can help please contact Kenny Smith KennySmith@ClarkRepublicans.com (or call 360-521-8565).

BONUS TIP FOR THE ELECTION-SEASON!  Amaze your friends with this campaign trick!  If you tire of receiving campaign literature or phone calls you can end them almost overnight with this simple strategy--Vote!  And get everyone in your household to vote!  Campaigns will not spend their valuable resources contacting households who have already voted.  They do not know how you vote, but they do know when you vote and they stop contacting you.  So vote today!

Help get your neighbors vote by putting a campaign sign in your yard.  The Clark County Republican office is open9:00am – 5:00pm Monday through Friday and people have been coming in daily to pick up signs and literature.  Better to be in your yard than our storage room!  9401 NE Covington Rd., Vancouver. 

Call me.  I am available to you any time,

Kenny Smith
