Candidates & Precincts
The Missoula County Republican Central Committee met on Tuesday, March 27, and filled a banquet room at the DoubleTree Hotel. Almost all of the local legislative and senate candidates were present to introduce themselves to their respective Precinct Captains. Guest speaker was Sandy Welch, candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Her talk was both informative and inspirational. I encourage all conservative groups to invite her to speak. Central committee members were encouraged to continue writing letters to the Legislative Redistricting Commission, urging them to consider the proposed Urban/Rural map when redrawing the district lines. Donated items are starting to come in for the silent auction tables of the Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner banquet. More donated items/services are still needed. We’ll have no fewer than 14 candidates to help following the June primary election and our coffers need to be full. Committee members who want to be delegates to the state GOP convention in June need to contact the nominating committee prior to the April meeting. Delegates must be fully registered to attend the state convention. Those who think they want to attend the national GOP convention in Tampa this summer need to make it known. Go to mtgop.org for procedures, forms and deadlines. Local Republicans who want to be involved in this very important campaign year are calling in daily. There are numerous volunteer tasks to fit anyone’s availability to walk, stuff envelopes, make phone calls, place signs or even encourage neighbors to hold meet-and-greet social events for local candidates. The time and efforts put in by volunteers can make the election go our way!
