As we come to the end of a tumultuous year it is time to reflect on the Sonoma County Republican Party and events during 2018. This was an election year and Republicans in Sonoma County worked to elect strong Republicans to office. We succeeded in electing Republicans to city council races and school boards.
Races for state offices did not go well. We had a very successful breakfast in September with all of the state candidates with 157 people attending. We had an excellent group of candidates. Unfortunately, the Democrat registration in California is overwhelming and we are still waiting for the statistics regarding how many Republicans actually voted.
When it comes to the Congressional seats, it would appear that chicanery is afoot. All of the Republican House seats in Orange County and one in San Diego flipped to Democrat. It appears that many strange things happened in these races that caused the change.
Of course, all kinds of legislation has been passed in the Democrat legislature that makes voter fraud very easy. It is now possible for anyone to return a voter’s ballot to the Registrar. Therefore, we had ballot gathering by paid people. Unfortunately, not enough Californians are paying attention to what is going on in the legislature.
Our election for Committee offices takes place on December 12th. We have a strong slate of nominees who are looking forward to working hard in the new year.
On Wednesday, December 19th the Central Committee will be hosting our annual Christmas Party. There is no charge and all registered Republicans are invited. The gathering will start at 7:00 p.m. Our web site will have information regarding donations of food if you are so inclined. That is not a requirement for attending.
We are planning events and training for next year. Check the web site since that is how we get our message out. www.sonomacountygop.org.
California is in trouble but too many people are either unaware of that or many just think they will leave the state. Persons who think their vote does not matter are wrong but the opposition is very good at pushing its message.
We look forward to a very good year. Stay tuned for information about our speaker series and our Lincoln Day Dinner.
Christmas Blessings To All.
