(Adam Khan, Washoe County Republican Party) – As the 2016 elections rapidly approach, the Washoe County Republican Party is gearing up its efforts to register Republican voters and make sure that the failed policies of the past six years come to an abrupt halt.
As Americans, we are incredibly blessed to live in the greatest country in the world. With that being said, I believe the Republican Party needs to evolve and work to attract widespread support from people throughout our community.
The guiding philosophy of the Washoe County Republican Party is the promotion of sound, honest, effective government. We stand for personal opportunity and responsibility, lower taxes, smaller government, and strong national defense. We are not discriminatory toward any members of our community. For far too long, some members of the Republican Party have promoted social policies that I believe are unacceptable in the world we live in today. Under my leadership, the Washoe County Republican Party will be reaching out to any and all people who are concerned about the direction that our country is headed.
Therefore, on Friday, August 28, 2015, the Washoe GOP will be having a “Meet and Greet” with the Nevada Log Cabin Republicans (a Republican organization that advocates equal rights for LGBT people in the United States) at Coney Island Bar & Restaurant in Sparks at 5:00 pm. I invite all elected Republican officials to be in attendance and join me in welcoming our fellow Republicans.
As the great former President Ronald Reagan once said, “Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.” We as Republicans need to be leading by example on this issue.
Going forward, I intend to focus on an inclusive approach for the Washoe GOP. Let’s all stand together as Republicans, and make sure that the Democrats have no chance of winning the White House in 2016.
America is counting on us.
