For Immediate Release
JOINT PRESS RELEASE FROM CLARK COUNTY DEMOCRATS AND CLARK COUNTY REPUBLICANS JUNE 14, 2017
The Clark County Republicans and the Clark County Democrats strongly condemn the actions of a shooter in Virginia this morning whose unprovoked and deliberate act wounded four people, including an United States congressman and local law enforcement officers. The local parties have long planned to hold a softball game between the parties called “The Clark Cup” this Sunday, June 18th which will also serve as a fundraiser for “Santa’s Posse”, a local children’s charity. Off duty Clark County Sheriff’s deputies will be assisting with our game and serving as umpires. We are working closely with the Clark County Sheriff’s office to ensure the safety and comfort of our attendees and players for the game on Sunday. Both Clark County GOP Chair David Gellatly and Clark County Democratic Chair Rich Rogers are committed to providing a fun, safe, family oriented and secure event celebrating our community and our ability to engage with each other in a civil and productive manner. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been impacted by this morning’s shooting and both local parties are committed to moving forward and not letting this terrible act prevent us from promoting events to bring our community together. We feel we could all use this reminder more than ever. We look forward to seeing you at the game on Sunday, June 18th at 1pm, Luke Jensen Field, Vancouver WA.
