Meet New Chair, Thank Old Chair

November 23, 2014

At our Fourth Tuesday get together, we’ll all have a chance to meet the new Chair of the Josephine County Republican Party, Joshua Robinson, who was elected earlier this month by the Republican Central Committee.

We will also have an opportunity express our appreciation to our outgoing Chair, Keith Trahern, our outgoing vice-Chair, Eric Schaafsma, and our outgoing Treasurer, Kathy Kelly — who has been volunteering her services for six years to keep us afloat! Our outgoing Secretary, Alan Koebrick, is our new Vice-Chair.

There will be an open mike so people can express their appreciation and good wishes to those who have made significant personal sacrifices to serve our party over these past years.

Please join us at 6:00 PM on November 25 to celebrate the results of the recent election, to thank our outgoing officers, and to congratulate our new ones.

The Black Bear Diner is at 1900 NW 6th St. See you there!

Richardson – Kitzhaber KOBI-TV Debate & Rally: 10/20

October 19, 2014

On Monday evening, October 20, there will be live debate between Representative Dennis Richardson and Governor John Kitzhaber on KOBI-TV Channel 5 in Medford at 7:00 pm.

We are asking PCPs and volunteers to meet at the Jackson County Republican headquarters in Medford, 311 E. Main, at 5:15 pm to pick up Richardson signs and walk to the KOBI studios.

The Democrats will turn out a large number of people to support Kitzhaber, so we want to have as large a turnout as possible in support of Dennis Richardson. The media will cover the rally, and we need be there to support Dennis. Dennis will greet us at the pre-debate rally at KOBI prior to 6:00 pm.

The rally participants will return to the JCRP office for a Debate Watching Party, and Dennis will join us after the debate. We will have pizza and beverages provided for the party.

If you can, please RSVP to Jeanie Schmeusser at 541-772-5610 so that we have an idea of the number of Richardson supporters we can expect.

See you there!

Tuesday Debate between Dr. Monica Wehby and Jeff Merkley at KOBI 5

October 13, 2014

The citizens of Oregon have been poorly represented for 5 plus years by one of the Senate’s most left-leaning member’s, liberal incumbent U.S. Democratic Senator Jeffery Merkley. Jeff Merkley has not sponsored, co-sponsored, or endorsed efforts to increase timber harvest on designated Oregon O & C lands for fear of angering the environmental groups that support him. Further, he has not supported free trade, which Oregon needs, to avoid conflict with unions.

On Tuesday, October 14, at 5:00 PM, Republican challenger Dr. Monica Wehby will be in Southern Oregon, at TV Station KOBI 5, for a debate with Jeff Merkley. The debate is scheduled to air on KOBI 5 from 7:00 to 8:00 PM on October 14.

We need your support for a rally to send a strong message across Oregon that Jeff Merkley needs to be replaced. Participants are gathering at the Jackson county Headquarters, 311 E. Main Street, Medford, at 5:15 PM to 6:00 PM. We’ll be walking over to the KOBI 5 Studios, 125 S. Fir Street, at 6:00 PM to greet Dr. Wehby and then returning to the Jackson HQ to watch the debate at 7:00 P.M.

After the debate, around 8:00 PM, Dr. Wehby to stop by the Jackson county HQ to meet everyone.
