It is with a heavy heart that I write this month’s message. The massacre in Las Vegas and the murder of so many innocent people tears at our hearts. It is a time to come together to give whatever emotional and financial support we are able to give to victims and their families.
Actions such as this assault makes many of us ask what is going on in America? The President very correctly described the assault as pure evil. What is this evil that has permeated so much of our society? It will take all of us to speak out against this evil and fight its spread.
Unfortunately, it is 100% predictable that some on the left side of the spectrum will immediately blame the NRA and start lobbying for stricter gun control. Some people never miss a chance to push their political agenda. Some individuals even put out messages on social media stating that since most of the people at the country music concert were probably Republicans the assault was a good thing. We are seeing some really sick people who do not put the country first.
The Republican Party will be hosting a candidate forum of those people running for Sonoma County Sheriff. Four of the candidates will be speaking and answering questions at our office on Wednesday, October 25th at 7:00 p.m. at our headquarters at 1421 Guerneville Road. Please RSVP so that we can make adequate preparations.

Debbie LeBoy, our First Vice-Chair will be leading a discussion regarding the question of illegal immigration and possible solutions. She will be in our office at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 18th. Come and join Debbie. Our regular meeting will then start at 7:00 p.m.
In closing, we need to remember that we are all Americans. Television showed the scene in Las Vegas about an hour before the attack. All of the people there held up their phones with their flashlights on while they sang God Bless America. We are proud to be Americans and we must never be intimidated into hiding our love for our country.
God Bless the United States of America.
Sonoma County Republican Party
