Message From The Chairman Of The Okanogan County GOP

The following message was sent to the Washington State Republican Party by Professor Kit Arbuckle, Chairman of the Okanogan County GOP, on Tuesday August 25, 2015:

Thank you for your kind words of support on the WSRP website.

Okanogan, Chelan, and Ferry Counties are all struggling with burned homes, uncertain futures, and a thick pall of smoke.  We appreciate the dedicated efforts of the fire fighters, who have saved many homes and limited the expansion of the flames. We also appreciate the much improved fire response and coordination this year, thanks largely to Representative Joel Kretz’s efforts.

Thru the past two difficult years, one lesson has really been driven home to those of us who live in the Okanogan: the minimized logging and grazing in the national and state forests has created a grave danger to our residents, our livestock, and our wildlife, as well as seriously impacting our local economies and our ability to recover from crises.  Because those of us who live here love our environment, we see clearly the need to manage our forests in a wiser way.

Thank you for being with us in spirit during these tough times!

Professor Kit Arbuckle, Chairman of the Okanogan County GOP

Media Advisory: Caucus Date, Delegation Allocation

BELLEVUE, WA, August 17 – The Washington State Republican Party issued the following media advisory:

Despite repeated clarifications, inaccurate information is still being published and broadcast.   Reports that the WSRP has already scheduled its caucuses for March 2016 are incorrect.  Also, there have been erroneous reports that the WSRP has already decided to allocate half its delegates from the primary, and half its delegates from the caucuses – these reports are not true!

The WSRP caucus date and the method of delegate allocation have not been finalized.  The next meeting of the WSRP State Committee, to be held on September 12 in the Tri-Cities, will decide on the 2016 rules for caucus and convention.

The Washington State Republican Party supports the primary process, and we prefer an early primary while there are more contenders in the race for both Republicans and Democrats. A March 8 primary would focus attention on the state of Washington, and presidential candidates would come to our state to hold campaign rallies and win over voters. In previous years, the primary was twice moved to February.

At last week’s committee meeting with the Secretary of State, the Democratic Party blocked a March presidential primary.  This anti-democratic action of the Democrats denies all Washington voters the chance to select their nominee for president at the height of the campaign season.

Education: Democrat Failures, Republican Solutions

BELLEVUE, WA, August 13 – Susan Hutchison, the Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party, issued the following statement:

“The State Supreme Court’s decision today regarding the State of Washington’s education policy underscores the negligent role the Democrats have played for too long.

“For 30 years, the Democrats have been in control of state government.  Only under the Senate Republicans has the budget increased to record levels to fund education.  ‘Education First’ was the Republican motto for the 2015 Legislative Session and we delivered.

“The Senate Majority Coalition Caucus released this statement today in response to the Supreme Court decision:

‘We agree with the court that the local levy issue remains unresolved. 30 years of an unconstitutional levy structure has created unconscionable pockets of poverty where teachers and students have been victims of unequal funding. We are working with districts across the state to ensure that our plan works for all students and remain ready to get the job done.’

“In 2016, with the election of a Republican governor, and a GOP majority in the State House, GOP solutions can replace Democrat failures.”

DEMOCRATIC PARTY MUST CHANGE ITS NAME!

BELLEVUE, WA, August 11 – Susan Hutchison, the Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party, issued the following statement:

“In an astounding development at a committee meeting today with the Secretary of State, the Democratic Party blocked a March presidential primary, denying voters the chance to select their candidate for president.

“The reason the Democrats gave for not holding the primary on either March 8 or March 22 in the height of campaign season was because it would ‘confuse’ the Democrats.

“The state’s primary will instead be held on the late date of May 24, and the voters of Washington State are the losers.

“The Democrats’ unwillingness to vote for a relevant state primary election is an indication that they don’t favor the democratic process.  THAT’S WHY THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY MUST CHANGE ITS NAME!

Teri Hickel Wins 30th LD Primary!

Teri Hickel, Republican candidate for State House in the 30th LD, has won the primary.  As of August 11, results from King County and Pierce County give Hickel a victory of 51.77% to 48.23% over her Democrat opponent.

Congratulations are due to Teri, and to the great effort of supporters, volunteers, and donors.

But there is a big fight ahead, and winning the general election will require even more hard work.  The Democrat machine will certainly not give up without a fight, so defeating Democrat Carol Gregory, a favorite of the WEA union bosses, will require a major effort.  A general election victory by Hickel will bring us within striking distance of a GOP majority in the House.

For the general election, we need more boots on the ground – more field staff and canvassers – to make sure we have the most effective voter ID and get-out-the-vote effort possible.  Please donate generously – $25, $50, $100, $200 or more to help elect Teri Hickel to the State House!

VOTE! Mail In Your Ballot By Tues. Aug. 4!

VOTE!  The primary election is tomorrow.  Be sure to mail in your ballot by Tuesday August 4, and remind all your Republican friends to turn in their ballots as well!
