United in Principle Respectful of Others
Your Columbia County Republicans are active in building strong communities and advocating for strengthening the middle class. We defend the Constitution, support a free market enterprise system and oppose heavy-handed government overreach. We believe in the preservation of our unalienable rights. We stand for life, liberty and personal responsibility.
Our great nation was founded on the belief that an individual should be free from oppression and be allowed to think for, to act for and to openly express one’s self.
We believe that an individual should have the liberty to pursue their own dreams and aspirations along with owning the responsibility for those actions
With freedom and liberty comes a responsibility to defend those basic rights. The Columbia County Republicans stand ready to lead, defend and uphold your rights granted by the constitution of the United States of America.
Principles over Party. Policy over Politics.
If you believe that a limited constitutional government, local control and personal responsibility matter, we invite you to come join the Columbia County Republicans!

The answer is becoming a Precinct Committee Person - or a PCP!
PCPs are the first level of elected government officials and represent their very local areas of anywhere from 100-500 of their neighbors.
Here are examples of some of the responsibilities of the PCP:
• Decide local party leadership roles.
• Have a voice and vote in filling state legislative vacancies in off session years!
• Help with the operations of local parties
• Propose and vote on county resolutions
• Do outreach at community events
• Help facilitate local Get-Out-The-Vote efforts
• Volunteer recruitment and development
• Represent voters in your area.
It is really this simple and we will help you!
We need OUR PEOPLE to fill those seats. Please let us know if you are interested and/or if you have questions. We here as your local leadership for the group will be happy to answer your questions and get you signed up.

“That’s called rigging the vote,” Heard said during a floor speech Monday morning, during which he also acknowledged Senate rules are on Courtney’s side. “It’s immoral, it’s unethical. And the people of Oregon are not going to stand for it anymore.”
“In a letter to Courtney on Monday, Senate Republican Leader Herman Baertschiger Jr. of Grants Pass appeared to anticipate criticism that his caucus would likely face if they stall or kill those other priorities by walking out to halt the climate bill.
“I propose that we focus on the true intent of the short session and work on the budgets, emergencies, and fixes to other legislation,” Baertschiger wrote. “We need to live up to the intent of the short session that Oregonians voted for.”
Tomorrow House Democrats will introduce LC 308, a 168-page bill that incorporates all the worst parts of SB 1530, plus the -35 amendment.
Here is a link to the LC: https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2020R1/Downloads/CommitteeMeetingDocument/217310
Tomorrow afternoon at 1pm this legislation will receive a bill number once the House Rules Committee accepts its introduction.
What does this mean?
This bill is not going to the House Committee on Energy and Environment because we are nearly halfway through the short session, policy committees will be closing soon.
The only way a brand new bill can be introduced is by sending it directly to Rules or Ways & Means.
What can you do about it?
Call, email and visit Democratic Legislators and tell them what a bill like this would do to you, your family, and your way of life.
Show up tomorrow at 1 pm in Hearing Room E to show Legislators that you do care, you are paying attention, and you can’t afford legislation that will increase your costs of living and potentially cost you your job.
We anticipate a public hearing on this bill on Thursday, so if you can make it to the capitol that day, please do.
We can still make a difference here, but we need your help.
