From the Chairman's Desk- October 12, 2014

Calling All Volunteers!

Watch our calendar and send event announcements to media@ClarkRepublicans.com especially when you see opportunities for our candidates, public meetings regarding the Home Rule Charter, or the anti-gun initiative, I-594

CALLING ALL ACTIVISTS & POTENTIAL VOLUNTEERS--7:00pm Tuesday evening—Club Green Meadows!  The Clark County Republican Party is a grass-roots-led organization.  Join us Tuesday when we’ll describe the actual structure of the Party, current opportunities & ideas for the future.  Though things are intense right now, election season is about to end and the legislative season begin.  If we learn to focus on our shared goals, on the things that unite us, we might stand a chance of preserving our freedoms.  Join us this Tuesday at Club Green Meadows.

A REPUBLICAN WAR ON WOMEN?  No evidence of one in Clark County.  We have twice as many women running for office than the Democrats.  Please work to get our Republican women (and men) elected.  They cannot possibly meet all the voters on their own.  Reach out to the candidates and give them a boost during these last few weeks.

OFFICE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!:

The office is getting busy!  Contact Brenda Poletti 503-380-6918 poletfam@yahoo.com if you can help with staffing. She has each day, M-F 9 - 5 covered in half day shifts, but we would like to add Saturdays and we really should have additional daytime support.

BOOTS ON THE GROUND ARE NEEDED RIGHT NOW.  Ballots arrive this week and you can make all the difference in the close races.  Contact the candidates and volunteer.  Stop by HQ to pick up campaign supplies to share with your neighbors:  We even have No on I-594 and Anti Charter Signs.  9401 NE Covington Rd, Vancouver.  Open M-F 9am-5pm. 

PHONE BANK:  Join our phone bank team!  One of the most crucial tasks of the coming weeks.  Whether phone banking or doorbelling, voters admire the civic duty you perform.  Contact our volunteer coordination executive and sign up to help: KellyHarms@ClarkRepublicans.com
