Legislative District Town Halls:
This week marked the halfway point for the current session of the Washington State Legislature. So far this session, the legislature has been busy addressing fundamental priorities including transportation and education to name a few. Tomorrow, many Senators and Representatives in King County will be holding town hall meetings to report on activity in the legislature and answer questions. Reports are that the Liberal and Democratic special interests will be at these town halls in large numbers. Republicans must attend to engage at the meeting and to support the legislators we elected. Click here for a list of scheduled town hall meetings across King County this weekend.
King County Republican Party Membership:
Our candidates look to the party to identify Republican voters and make sure those Republicans VOTE! If we are not there to do our job, Republican campaigns suffer. The King County Republican Party depends upon the financial support of Republicans to get our job done. In talking with many of you, it seems there is the idea that contributions to the National or State Republican Parties are a contribution shared by us all. I wish it were so.
National, State and County Republican Organizations are separate organizations, with specific jobs to do within the party. At the King County Republican Party, we are responsible for raising funds to conduct our party operations, primarily on the ground reaching out individually to voters. We don’t register by party in Washington which means we must seek voter affiliation directly from voters in neighborhoods and communities across King County. Our work provides Republican candidates accurate voter information so they can reach the voters who will support their campaigns. Your ongoing support makes it possible for us to identify Republican voters and WIN elections in King County.
Please contribute to our 2015 Membership Drive so that we can kick off this political season in good shape. Thank you!
