What is happening to our country?
I am, like you, overwhelmed with the frightening developments on the national and local scene.
I am, like you, appalled at the actions, or the lack thereof, of the Democrat officials at all levels. Think of it, Minneapolis, Seattle, Washington, D.C., Portland, their mayors and governors, all find themselves on the horns of a dilemma: do I protect my citizens or cater to the anarchists to appease the Democrat party? What would you do? To what end do these elected officials desire to undermine President Trump? Death and destruction? It seems so. It is all so wrong.
What’s needed? LEADERSHIP!
We need Leaders with American and Constitutional values, who understand what makes America great and are willing to fight for it.
We need Leaders who will stand up against anarchy and counter the cancel culture that is tearing us apart.
We need Leaders who are compassionate, fair, and just who can redefine these “either/or” demands and navigate us to a peaceful and inclusive solution.
Read this message from recently re-elected Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett:
“I acknowledge that events of the past several weeks bring enormous stress to our law enforcement family and our communities of color. There's no more important time than now to reflect and support our profession and the honor and dignity it demands, and there's no more important time than now to reflect and support our communities of color and the honor and dignity they deserve. We must do both. “
BHRW can do both. Now more than ever we need Republican principles and values in our city, our county, and our state. Consider the leadership skills candidates Sen. Kim Thatcher for Oregon Secretary of State and Jeff Gudman for Oregon Treasurer bring to the table: experience, freedom, reason, limited government, and personal responsibility. These are the leaders we need. These are OUR PEOPLE and we must help get them elected.
And we have more! Look at our candidates on this site:

Recent Membership Meetings
BHRW met in person on July 16 in a member's spacious, beautiful backyard. Twenty-four attendees celebrated 100 Years of Women’s Voices with speaker Cecelia Otto's entertaining and informative rendition of "History of Women’s Suffrage in Song, Stories & Fun Facts." Nicole Chaisson, Hood River, developer of the Facebook page: “My party was changed Oregon”, described the need for and exponential growth of the page. A Trump campaign entity has contacted Nicole and is seeking Secretary of State documents regarding the explained change of voter registrations. Oregon's Motor-Voter law appears suspect.

Although we had not met since February, various members have been meeting to develop our efforts.
