All Clear Creek County Voters:
Come Meet, Hear, and Support
ColoGOP Chairman Steve House gives heartfelt THANKS to all R-volunteers. Clear Creek County Republicans had outstanding delegates at Caucus, County, District and State Assemblies!
In reflecting over the weekend and reviewing all the stuff in the news last week that is negative about The Colorado Republican Party, most of it blatantly untrue, I got really upset about the harsh rhetoric regarding “insiders” in the party. So who are these “insiders” in Colorado? Almost all of them are people who volunteer countless hours as county chairman, county officers, PCP’s, District Captains, and other roles who just happen to have been doing it for years because they care so much about our country.
They are also the people who went to caucus, just like they always do, who are also called activists because they work hard when they don’t have to, and many label them anti-establishment. They ran for delegate to county, congressional, and state assemblies. These activists don’t usually seek power they seek results, they believe in the principles of lower taxes, limited government, and greater freedom and they work to deliver that through volunteering their time, talent and resources. These aren’t people who work in the state capitol or Washington DC. They are people who live in places like Ouray, Otero, Phillips, and Moffat counties. They are people like Anil, our county chairman in Adams county who is always fighting uphill against a democrat machine with greater numbers and he does it while doing a full time job, raising a family and doing prison ministry as well. They are people like Janell Reid in Lincoln County who has given 36 years of her life to the county party as its leader not because she seeks to manipulate or control anyone, but because she cares and few if any will take on the responsibility.
There are examples in every county and in every geography in our state of people like this who the outside world is calling “insiders” who they think manipulated or stole someone’s vote. All we did here is to follow the rules as they are written in state law and party bylaws and nothing makes me more angry then to see individuals who finally woke up and then decided to criticize the very people that have been keeping them from being a socialist nation in the first place just because they didn’t like the outcome or process of an election here.
In conclusion: If you feel like you have the need to criticize any of us who donate our time to stop the liberal progressive machine from making America worse; then criticize, but you better be prepared to jump in and actually help solve the problem because the rest of us have been in the game fighting the battle for you too long for you to jump off your couch and scream at us just because you read some sensationalized story on Drudge that isn’t true and you aren’t interested in looking for the facts first. We need to do some things better but before you criticize these great people and push them out of the jobs they volunteer for you better be prepared to backfill them in those roles or we won’t win elections regardless of who our candidates are. Who will you blame then?
I am proud of the county organizations we have across the state and the staff we have at the state party for what they do on a daily basis to try and get good people elected. Thank you to all our volunteers, county officers, PCP’s, District Captains, donors and supporters for what you do. We know the truth and we appreciate what you do and what you endure.

Here’s a way to find your caucus location. It’s a link to the Colorado Republican Party. You put in your street address and zipcode and it will give you your precinct number and caucus location, and a person to contact.
• Select caucus officers (temporary Chair, Secretary, Tellers).
Temporary, to run the caucus meeting.
• Elect 2 Precinct Committee Persons (PCP).
To represent precinct at County Central Committee meetings.
• Elect Delegates and Alternates to the County Assembly.
Nominate and elect by show of hands or secret ballot.
• Recognize any candidates or candidate surrogates to speak.
Each one may be time limited.
• Introduce, debate, and approve or reject written platform issues.
Only written platform items can be forwarded to County Assembly.
Because the Colorado State Republican Party wanted our delegates to be un-bound. New rules by the Republican National Committee would bind Colorado delegates to the candidate who won the straw poll going into the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
