Delegates to Republican State Convention

The Oregon Republican State Platform Convention and State Central Committee meeting will be held on September 9 & 10, 2011 at the Riverhouse Hotel and Convention Center in Bend, Oregon.

At the Josephine County Republican Central Committee organizational meeting on July 19, we elected four bonus delegates to the state convention, and four alternate bonus delegates. The bonus delegates are Jack Swift, Jim Frick, Leah Kurz, and Trenor Scott. The alternate bonus delegates are Ron Ruby, Richard Siler, Judy Ahrens, and Vivian Kirkpatrick. (In the event that a bonus delegate is unable to attend, an alternate will take their place.) Our chair and vice chair, Bill Ertel and Eric Schaafsma, and our previously elected offical delegate, Ron Glynn, will also be attending the convention.

The purpose of the convention is to formulate the Oregon Republican Party platform for the 2012 election campaigns. Each of the delegates who attend will have the opportunity to directly influence the platform. All concerned Republicans are encouraged to meet with with your delegates and voice your concerns and issues to make sure you are well represented at the state platform convention.
