If You Want to be a PCP, Act Now

February 8, 2014

Precinct Committee People are elected in Oregon so, if you want to be a PCP, even if you already are one, you need to file the PCP candidate filing form by March 11 to get on the ballot for your precinct.

The form is located here. Be sure to fill in all the requested information, print the form, sign and date it, and deliver it to the County Clerk’s office at the Courthouse, 500 NW 6 St in Grants Pass.

PCPs are very important, particularly in an election year. They represent the Republican Party to the voters in their district, and also represent the Republicans in their district at the Republican Central Committee. PCPs are the eyes and ears of the party, and are the ones who ensure that the party stays in touch with its members. PCPs are fundamental to a grass roots political party that truly represents its members.

If you’re interested in becoming a PCP, please read The Top Ten Duties of a PCP, and then file your candidacy for your precinct.

Wyden Town Hall on Sunday

February 7, 2014

Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) will hold a town hall on Sunday, February 9, at 12:30 PM at the Anne Basker Auditorium in Grants Pass.

Please be sure to attend to let Senator Wyden know how strongly we in Josephine County oppose his O&C Land Grants Act of 2013, which will not only reduce timber harvests on O&C Lands, but will eliminate our legal grounds for demanding that the BLM comply with the O&C Lands Act of 1937.

Senator Wyden is in the pocket of the environmental activist special interest groups, and wants to permanently withdraw more than half of the O&C lands from any future timber or mineral production, while imposing “ecological forestry” mandates on the remaining lands that will significantly reduce potential timber harvests.

The preservationists will attend to admonish him to withdraw even more lands from production and make timber harvesting restrictions even more draconian. Supporters of natural resource utilization need to show up in equal numbers to present a voice of reason.

What: Wyden Town Hall
When: Sunday, February 9, 2014, at 12:30 PM
Where: Anne Basker Auditorium
604 NW 6 St, Grants Pass

Need Volunteers for Campaign Headquarters

January 16, 2014

The Josephine County Republican Campaign Headquarters is up and running, and we need your help! Current hours are from 12:00 – 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.

In order to keep the doors open, we need people who can spend some time at the headquarters on a regular (or semi-regular) basis. No special skills are required. Just be friendly and welcoming and hand out campaign literature to people who stop in.

Later, we’ll be needing volunteers with cell phones to help with the Get Out The Vote campaign.

Vivien Kirkpatrick-Pilger is coordinating our volunteers this year so, if you can volunteer, either as a campaign headquarters staffer or as a GOTV caller, please e-mail Vivian at, or call her at Campaign Headquarters, 507-1467.

If you plan to stop by headquarters, please call first. Vivian’s office is in the back and she can’t see who’s coming in, so she’s keeping the door locked until we have more volunteers to staff the front.

Thank you!
