Carl Wilson will be hosting an ice cream social at the Republican Campaign headquarters for First Friday, on August 1 from 6:00-8:00.
Carl is our Republican candidate for State Representative in District 3.
So stop by, enjoy and ice cream sundae, visit with Carl, and pick up some campaign literature, signs, bumper stickers, etc. for your favorite candidates!
Campaign headquarters is at 513 NE 6th St, across the street from the Courthouse.
See you there!
Just a reminder that our PCP training will be tomorrow night (Tuesday, July 29) and Saturday morning (August 2) at Campaign Headquarters, 513 NE 6th St.
Training is highly recommended for new PCPs, and all PCPs are welcome!
We have an exciting campaign season ahead of us, and we need your help to staff our Campaign Headquarters and keep it open during regular hours so people can get information on our Repubican candidates.
Greg Walden is running for another term in the U.S. House of Representatives. Art Robinson, our State ORP Chair, is also running for Congress, challenging Democrat incumbent Peter DeFazio. Monica Wehby is running for U.S. Senate against Democrat incumbent Jeff Merkley.
Dennis Richardson is running for Governor. (This is a very important race because we cannot afford four more years of Kitzhaber!)
We also have Republican Candidates running for State Representative in the four districts in Josephine County. They are Wayne Krieger in District 1, Dallas Heard in District 2, Carl Wilson in District 3, and Duane Stark in District 4.
Republicans Simon Hare (incumbent) and Mark Gatlin are running for the non-partisan position of County Commissioner Position 1, and Republicans Gil Gilbertson (incumbent) and Dave Daniel are running for the non-partisan position of Sheriff.
We have signs and campaign literature for all of these Republican candidates at our Campaign Headquarters, at 513 NE 6th St in Grants Pass. But we need people to staff it to keep it open. If you can donate even two hours of your time, it will help!
Sue Stout will be in charge of scheduling people to staff our Headquarters. If you can help, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Josephine County Republican Party will be offering PCP training for any PCP who would like it. We have 12 newly elected PCPs and a number of returning PCPs who have had not had previous training.
We will be offering two sessions for your convenience. The first session will be on Tuesday, July 29, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. The second session will be held on Saturday, August 2, from 10:00AM to noon. Both sessions will be held at our Republican Campaign Headquarters, at 513 NE 6th St (across from the courthouse).
Josephine County PCP Coordinator Ron Glynn will be teaching the class, with assistance from Josephine County Vice Chair Eric Shaafsma and State PCP Coordinator Dick Smith.
Even if you’ve attended PCP training in the past, you’re welcome to come for a refresher course!
The Josephine County Republican Central Committee voted on July 7 to endorse the effort to recall Commissioner Cherryl Walker.
Ms. Walker was elected Commissioner in 2012 by a margin of 58 votes. In her first year in office, she distinguished herself by personally campaigning for four “nuisance” ordinances that were subsequently defeated by nearly 80% in a referendum last November.
Since becoming chair of the Board of County Commissioners six months ago, she has twice called the police on citizens during Weekly Business Sessions for failure to obey rules that did not exist at the time, adjourned a Weekly Business Session without conducting county business because she felt she couldn’t control the meeting, and attempted to eliminate public comment from the Weekly Business Sessions.
The full grounds for the recall can be read here.
For more information on the recall, see www.walkerrecall.com.
Please join us for a 4th of July BBQ, from 6:00-8:00 PM at the Republican Campaign Headquarters, 513 NE 6th St. We will be having hot dogs, beans, and pot luck so bring something to share!
Republican candidates will be on hand to meet and chat and join in the fun!
The 4th of July this year also falls on a First Friday Art Night, and our guest artist this month is Spencer Fuller, so you will have a chance to see and admire his work as well.
So stop by for fun, food, art, and banter with the candidates before you head out for the fireworks!
See you there!
