It’s been another quarter since I last wrote, and I see glimmers of hope.
President Trump has just nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court! Another great reason to Vote for Trump!
And the WashCoGOP Reagan dinner was a refreshing oasis where positive, uplifting speeches were given by Republican leaders.
But I look to South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem who was an inspiration at the dinner. When COVID hit, she brought in her General Council to prepare their plan. They knew they could not stop the virus so focused on hospitals and care. South Dakota never closed a single business. They never issued a shelter in place. They never mandated masks. Gov Noem stated that leadership has consequences. “When a leader oversteps, we lose our country” “‘Hear the fear’ is not where you want your leader to be.” Her advice to women was to say ‘yes’ and step up.

Recent BHRW Events:
Our Dec 19 membership meeting was via Zoom to hear Secretary of State Candidate, Kim Thatcher, and State Treasurer Candidate, Jeff Gudman, reflect on their recent races and what's next for them going forward. They both spoke of the urgent need for state Republicans to unite, strengthen their messages and plan now for the future. Over 30 people joined us. There were several guests including two from Downtown Portland Republican Women.
BHRW held their Oct 15 membership meeting via Zoom again. Several candidates joined us to talk about their campaigns: Dale Fishback (HD 29) , Sandra Nelson( HD 27) , Peggy Stevens (HD 26), and Jeff Gudman (State Treasurer).
Christine Drazan (Or House Minority Lead) spoke to the group about the struggles to help Oregon citizens harmed by the pandemic and recent fires and the struggle the Republicans are having making their case with the Governor. She urged us to help in anyway we can with local candidates (please see our Call to Action tab) and mentioned the Republican' s Evergreen PAC as a place to find how to help. She mentioned two candidates who, with some additional help, have an especially strong chance of winning: South Coast candidate is Boomer Wright at Boomer@boomerwright.com and North Coast candidate is Suzanne Weber at email@example.com.
