We do not have an office that’s open to the public this year. We only have these during Presidential years. We do have, however, have an office we are looking for volunteers to phone bank. We also have signs for some of our endorsed candidates.
You can pick up signs at Bruce Simpson Jewelers 1 S. Wenatchee Ave (corner Palouse)
Note from the Chairman!
Voter turnout will be the most important thing to focus on this mid-term election. Chelan County needs to turnout more than 85% of the Republican/Conservative vote to make sure King County doesn’t win. We have heard many say “it doesn’t matter if I vote…..Seattle will decide who wins”. NOT TRUE!!!! With 85% voter turnout in our county alone, we can change the dynamics of the King County vote. So, no more excuses!! Tell your family. Tell your friends. Tell anyone who thinks like you do to turn in their ballots! If they need us to pick them up….we will! It’s time to say enough is enough!
HELP US STOP SEATTLE POLITICS INFILTRATING NORTH CENTRAL WASHINGTON!
Help us change history by electing Dino Rossi for Congress and Susan Hutchison for U S Senate (against Maria Cantwell). Helping us in these two races will ensure we win all our local races also.

YES on Initiative 1634
WHY? Washington state does not tax groceries but a loophole allows local governments to do so. I-1634 would ensure that our groceries – foods and beverages that we consume every day – are protected from any new or increased local tax, fee, or assessment. The rising cost of living makes it harder for families to afford the basics. Special interest groups across the country, and here in Washington, are proposing taxes on groceries like meats, dairy and juices – basic necessities for all families. I-1634 would prevent local governments from enacting new taxes on groceries. Higher grocery prices don’t hurt the wealthy elites but crush the middle class and those on fixed incomes, including the elderly. Source, Yes! To Affordable Groceries. Learn more!
NO on Initiative 1631
WHY? Initiative 1631 would impose a carbon tax of $15 per metric ton of CO2 emitted in Washington state, increasing by $2 per year plus inflation, to over $40 per metric ton in about ten years. Taxpayers would see the cost of the initiative primarily at the gas pump, in home heating costs, and on their electricity bills. This translates to between $234 and $305 for the average household in the first year, increasing to $672 and $877 per year after ten years. The largest portion of the cost would come from a 14-cent-per-gallon gas tax that would increase by about two cents per gallon each year. The initiative calls the tax a “pollution fee,” but it would use existing laws on gas taxes and other energy taxes for enforcement, so the effect on taxpayers would be a tax.

NO on Initiative 1639
WHY? Under the initiative, young adults age 18-20 would be prohibited from exercising their Second Amendment rights to buy semi-automatic modern sporting rifles. The measure also would classify popular .22-caliber rimfire semi-auto rifles as “assault weapons,” and there would be a $25 fee to do registration paperwork, which opponents consider a tax on the exercise of a constitutional right.Source, Second Amendment Foundation.

Under Bloomberg’s proposed Washington law, semi-automatic rifles or handguns of any type would be subjected to onerous new restrictions and taxes, thus discouraging their possession and lawful use. If the proposal passes in November, individuals who wish to acquire a semi-automatic rifle will also have to waive the confidentiality of their medical records. Source, NRA-ILA. Learn more!
