Local GOP Reborn!
Can you say “halleluiah”? Not too long ago I went looking for information on our local Ventura County GOP home page, and was surprised to find a site that had gone largely unedited for nearly a year. I was depressed and wrote about it, then went looking for answers. I received a quick response, and left assured things were indeed happening. Life goes on, I | Read More »
CA: Some GOP Legislators put Taxes Back on the Table
It finally happened, as it usually does, state Democrat legislators seem to have been able to reach a few “reasonable” Republicans and get them to agree to tax increases under “certain conditions”. In a “Read my lips” moment California GOP legislators signed a State Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which set in stone their commitment to all Californians to not allow California Democrats to simply tax and | Read More »
Update on Ventura County GOP
I just had the pleasure of speaking with one Chris Collier, newly assigned Executive Director of the Ventura County Republican Party. I’ll say one thing about this man, he’s energetic! He’s a self-described “Tech Geek”, with a head full of ideas and a plan to paint the County of Ventura bright red, as it was once. The local site should be up soon, and the | Read More »
There IS life in our local GOP
RE: Plans for the future? Within 24 hours of my sending an email to our Ventura County GOP, an answer was received by the new Executive Director. My sense is, as a state all but abandoned by the National Republican Party, there are probably money issues. Hard to fathom in a state the size of California, and “my sense” isn’t verified as yet by anyone | Read More »
Plans for the future?
[The following email I sent to members at the Ventura County GOP website] My name is Erick Brockway, and I want change. Not “Change”, or “Change We Can Believe In™“, but real change from Blue back to Red. I’m noticing there are no events scheduled, no updates on the website since February of last year. Ventura County has gone blue (albeit slightly), and we need | Read More »
I.T. Deceased Local GOP
And yet they wonder; why is Ventura County, California going blue? I last wrote about this here, and after that I thought I’d wait a bit and see if maybe local GOP leaders were just getting over the holidays. Maybe they needed time to commiserate the presidential defeat together or alone, or possibly they won a couple of local races and thought their job was | Read More »
An Example to the So-Called Republican Governor of California
California State Senator Tony Strickland (R- 19th Senate Dist) finally came back from the holidays with an article in the local Ventura County Star newspaper. Like all state GOP legislators, he is a signatory to the State Taxpayer Protection Pledge; I, ____________, pledge to the taxpayers of the _____ district of the State of _________ and to all the people of this state, that I | Read More »
Paging Audra Strickland (R CA37); Where’s OUR Chuck Devore?
(Hat tip to paulag1955) The California budget fiasco is about to hit the headlines soon, with Democrat legislators still trying their end-run on the California state constitution. Looking for leadership, I’m personally forced to turn to Chuck Devore (R CA-70) down in Orange County for leadership. Here locally, Ventura County, formerly a GOP bastion, has recently turned Blue, albeit barely. The latest numbers: 150,066 Democrats | Read More »
