From the Chairman's Desk-October 18, 2016

Republican HQ is open Monday through Saturday from noon - 6pm. 9401 NE Covington Rd, Vancouver. 

The Clark County Republican Party is guided by Core Principles and the 2016 Clark County Republican Party PlatformNote that our platform states: We dedicate time, talent, and efforts to electing those candidates who represent these principles and commit to implementing them into public policy.

Important new tab on the website: Ballot Recommendations.  Included are links to the candidates plus additional ballot information.  This will be updated as more information becomes available.  You can also print out a list here and stick it on your fridge for easy reference).

Callers needed:  Contact Kenny today to get on the call center schedule and help us Get Out the Vote (GOTV)! 360-521-8565 KennySmith@ClarkRepublicans.com.  We’ll be making calls each day between noon and 9pm.

Every single daily newspaper endorses Secretary of State, Kim Wyman!  You read that right - there isn’t a single daily newspaper endorsing my opponent. All of them observed the clear difference in experience and qualifications between her and me, and opted to keep our elections fair, accurate, and impartial. You can go here to read the full endorsements.

Three sources of candidate information:
1.
ClarkCounty.info, whose stated goal is to promote smaller and more honest local government has developed an evaluation process that is criteria-based, consistent, objective, and results in an aggregate score for the candidate: Political Candidate Evaluation Matrix by Jurisdiction.
2. Family Policy Institute of Washington encourages you to use of IVoter guide.
3.  Clark County Republican Party Ballot Recommendations (print this out and stick it on your fridge).

Campaign signs need your help!  Campaign signs are tipped over all around the county due to the recent winds.  With just a couple tools you can fix them in just a few minutes.  The sign teams would really appreciate the help!.  The only tools you need are a hammer and a screw gun with Phillips and T25 Torx bit.  Feel free to stop and repair any Republican sign you see.  Even yard signs should be righted and straightened up.  It's a small effort if we all chip in and keep our candidates looking sharp!

Yard signs in abundance!  Please stop in and get some yard signs today!  Let’s get them out in public where they can do some good.  A sign in your yard is a personal recommendation that will garner votes.  We’re open noon – 6pm Monday through Saturday.  9401 NE Covington Rd, Vancouver.  360-695-1609.

Attendance / Activism Needed:  Domestic Energy / Jobs Public Hearing October 25th!!  We need to develop our domestic energy!  We need to develop a more prosperous economy for Southwest Washington!  Our nominee, Donald Trump, along with many other Republican leaders have been calling for the development of our domestic natural resources and the jobs and prosperity which come along with it.  But there is no magic button in the Oval Office.  Implementing our conservative economic agenda requires LOCAL ACTIVISM. 

If all us local Republicans will attend the Army Corps of Engineers RIDGEFIELD Public Hearing regarding the Longview coal terminal, we can not only deliver a victory for Southwest Washington families who need great jobs, but we can also deliver a defeat to the anti-capitalist professional protester class, telling them their decades of fighting to de-industrialize our state are over!  It’s really worth 2 hours of our time, and watching the traveling liberal troubadours (like the singing grannies) will be entertaining too! 

Please go to this event registration page to RSVP.  Though the event is all day, we are just organizing to all be there from 4pm – 6pm.  Wear your brand!  Trump supporters – wear your Trump gear – make sure the left knows that Trump supporters are a local political force to be reckoned with.  Wear your GOP regalia or swag from your favorite local or statewide candidates.  This is going to be fun, and we can hopefully convert the resulting media attention into some great Get Out The Vote messaging because the meeting is right in the middle of our voting period!  Please register for the event, then go to the Facebook event and RSVP.  Thank you!!   -Christian Berrigan, State Committeeman, Clark County Republican Party.  Event Registration (free) http://createnwjobs.com/advocacy-register/  Facebook Event RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/560174334177839/
