Chairman's Message - March 2019

March is supposed to be the windy month.  Well, there are plenty of political winds this March.  The delegates from Sonoma County to the California Republican Party Convention will be dealing with a totally different state board after the party election. Of course, the reports in the media are not quite what your delegates think happened.

The media reports the convention as a battle between those supporting Donald Trump and those not supporting the President.  That was not by any means the overwhelming theme of the convention.  The new state president, Jessica Patterson, is a supporter of the President.  Unfortunately, the media dislike of the President colors all of their reporting.  That is why it is so important to get news from various alternative sources.

Delegates were able to hear from HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Congresswoman Liz Cheney, Political Activist Sean Spicer and Media personality Steve Hilton.  They were all terrific.

On February 26th, the Sonoma County Republican Party held its annual Lincoln Day Dinner.  Our speaker was Assemblyman Jay Obernolte from the 33rd Assembly District.  He was excellent and shared some of what is going on in the legislature. We truly appreciate his making the trip to Sonoma County.  A good time was had by all.

One of Assemblyman Obernolte’s discussion points was the future of California and of course the Republican Party.  It is highly likely that the Democrats in the Legislature will go too far. Their legislation is already causing many people to wonder what is going on.  It is crucial that more Californians of all parties fully understand that thousands of bills are introduced in each legislative session and many are passed which directly affect our lives.  When do voters start asking why so many people are leaving the state and why there are so many homeless people all over?  Could it be the laws that are passed that constrict the freedom of the average (not the elite) California citizen?

The county party is very aware of the fact that education is crucial to an informed electorate that understands the political process.  For that reason we are starting a Leadership Group to train Republicans on the various aspects of government.  We aim for a group of 20 who will and can commit to two hours one Saturday a month.  Our goal is to have various speakers train on the inner workings of government and provide an understanding of state and election laws.  If you are interested please e-mail me at

Let’s remember one important thing.  EVERYONE CANNOT LEAVE CALIFORNIA.

If you are going to be here you had better be prepared to fight for the Golden State.

Come join us.
