Greetings Conservatives!   Fair Debrief Fair results posted in the Sounder here. A statement by SJC Republican Party, passed as a resolution of the Central Committee, and signed by 12 conservatives myself included, was published in all three papers (here in the Sounder). We received more harassment at the county fair than in any year previous. It will be in the print versions this coming week. The paper also ran a short peice about the protestors at our booth, which was the most commented article I’ve ever seen. Thank you to Michelle Loftus for standing up on that thread. I was there working alone the night… Click Here to Read More

Greetings Conservatives!   “Sanctuary County” passes You may have heard that the county passed a sanctuary county measure. The media is saying that nobody spoke against it. That’s not actually true. We sent in several letters, had a con statement for the voter’s guide, and we did have one couple show up and brave the crowd at the Aug 15th meeting.

As it turned out,… Click Here to Read More

Greetings!  If you are directed here from the newsletter, note that SJI received a shortened version of this email.   We still need people for the fair. Click here to sign up. We are very short on Friday and Saturday. We also need some help with setup and takedown. Our other urgent need is the sanctuary county issue. We need people to write letters (contact info here) and show up to the Aug 15th county council meeting where this will be discussed. One conservative who attended the most recent council meeting overheard someone say “Well, no one opposes the sanctuary county measure…”… Click Here to Read More
