Thank you to all who clicked to volunteer last week. Our call center will be starting up shortly so we’re still signing up volunteers.  If you would like to help us at the call center or with literature drops, canvassing, social media contacts or more, please click the volunteer link above. 

This Saturday at 10am join us at HQ for our next canvassing effort.  See the listing in the Events Section below for October 17.  Let’s all pitch in over the next three weeks and bring another victorious election season to Clark County!

I am always here for you.  I post my personal cell phone number at the end of each email.  Feel free to call me any time:  Kenny Smith 360-521-8565

Property Rights in the crosshairs:
SB5263, which failed in 2015 is back again for 2016.  If you care about preserving property rights you should study this issue and attend the hearing at the Firstenberg Center on Oct 20th of this month.  See the details below in the calendar section and click here for additional information on the bill.

Candidate yard signs update:
We still have yard signs and literature for most of our candidates.  Stop in and get yours today.  Open 11:30 -5:30pm M-F.  9401 NE Covington Rd. Vancouver.  360-695-1609

Vandalized Campaign Signs?
We see the same thing every year.  Signs are damaged or go missing.  Bogus signs installed to confuse voters.  We do not condone touching anyone’s signs, but you do have our blessing to repair signs belonging to our candidates.  Keep them looking sharp and if you see anything suspicious take notes & pictures and report to us or to the police.  It is a real offense and penalties will be levied.  In 2012 some of our friends caught a sign thief who was prosecuted, fined $500, and required to perform community service.  He also got his name and picture in the news a number of times.  We’d like to make a celebrity of everyone who vandalizes signs this year.

HQ Office Staff needed:  We still need additional office staff during this election cycle answering phones and greeting visitors.  Contact Brenda Poletti if you can help out: 503-380-6918 or poletfam@yahoo.com.

COUNTY COUNCIL PUBLIC HEARING October 20, 10am - noon
Public Service Center, sixth-floor hearing room, 1300 Franklin St., Vancouver
Making decisions that can shape the course of life in Clark County for years to come is not an easy process. That’s why before they decide an issue, Clark County’s commissioners get extensive input from community members through citizen advisory groups, town hall meetings, one-on-one conversations, and other means.

IMPORTANT! SB 5263 PROPERTY RIGHTS TESTIMONY October 20, 1 – 5pm
Firstenburg Community Center, 700 NE 136th Avenue, Vancouver, WA
DON’T LET ANYONE TAKE AWAY YOUR PROPERTY RIGHTS!  Speak up now and tell the Senators listening on October 20th that you don’t need overzealous HOA board members in your backyard!  Senate Bill 5263 may impact your property rights if you live in a homeowner association.  The bill failed in 2015.  It is slated for reintroduction in 2016.  The bill is controversial due that association boards will gain the ability to violate specific Covenants Codes & Restrictions without your vote or consent as a homeowner.  A covenant is a rule governing the use of real property. However, in common usage, it may also refer to a promise or agreement (as formalized in a deed) concerning the use of the land, as where a purchaser of land "covenants" to abide by certain restrictions associated with the use of the land.  Some specifics are here.

Please encourage others to sign up for our mailing list at http://www.clarkrepublicans.org/join.  Many people do not know that we send this schedule information to them every week in email form.  Also, people may have to rejoin from time to time as their email provider takes them off our list thinking we are spam.  It happens every week and we have no control over it.  So if you ever hear anyone say that they used to get the newsletter, but no longer, they were likely removed by their own provider and they need to rejoin.


Call me.   I am available to you any time,
