Benton County, WA GOP

Anyone else reside in Benton County, WA?

I received this on email this morning, encouraging Precinct Committeemen to get involved and run for the position.  This all seems to fit with the kind of grassroots activity that ColdWarrior, et al have advocated.   Hopefully we can get more conservatives involved in the process in our great state!

THE DUTIES OF A PCO

So now for the important part. THIS WEEK, if you want to become an active member of the party and help facilitate fair and accessible elections, healthy debate, and growing participation then you must become a PCO. A PCO is responsible to provide access and information to the people that live in the precinct and to help them have an effective voice in the workings of the party and in the government. You will represent your precinct at Republican meetings (held about 8 times a year). You can volunteer to help at fundraising events and fairbooths. There are also many positions within the party that you can volunteer for. You will vote on party leadership (chair and vice chair). These people will appoint others to committees to write by-laws, manage website, event planning, etc. You will also vote on State Committee chair and chairwoman. These people go to state meetings and vote for State leadership and rules. All of these important things are initiated by power held by the PCOs. This is what you have to do.

CONFIRM YOUR CANDIDACY
Thanks for reading through this! I really really hope you will become a PCO. I want to see hundreds of people on the ballots! Run against each other, run against the current PCO in your precinct, I want people to run against me because the more people that are active, engaged and working the better off we will be as a party and a country. If you have any questions or need help please send me an email.

Thanks again!
