From the Chairman's Desk- October 6, 2014

Busy Candidate Week!

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

$33,920--The Clark County Republican Party is delighted to report that $10,420 was just contributed to candidates in addition to the $23,500 earlier in the season for a record(?) $33,920 locally-raised funds.  We would love to increase that amount so please contribute to the effort at this link.

Devote the month of October to promote candidates and ballot issues.  Boots on the ground are needed right now.  Just one more weekend before ballots arrive and you could make all the difference.  Contact the candidates and volunteer.  Stop by HQ to pick up campaign supplies to share with your neighbors:  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.  And for sure, the Clark County Republican party and our terrific candidates appreciate your effort.  Contact our volunteer coordination executive and sign up to help: KellyHarms@ClarkRepublicans.com.
