Welcome to the Cowlitz County Republicans website.  The 2016 Presidential election was certainly unconventional with many twists and turns but ultimately led to victory. We are optimistic that the Trump administration along with Congress can reverse the course of the last 8 years. The initial appointments and nominations are promising in that regard. Locally we have elected 2 GOP County Commissioners and a 19th District GOP Legislator for the first time since the 1940’s. However, at the State level there is still work to do.  We did retain the Secretary of State office and gained the State Treasurer’s Office. Thankfully the Republican Majority Caucus controls the State Senate and is the last line of defense against the Governor and the House of Representatives efforts to grow government and tax revenue.

If you want to get involved feel free to attend our monthly Central Committee meeting at our Headquarters located 1142 Washington Way in Longview next to Arby’s. The meetings are the 4th Tuesday of the month at 7 PM. We currently have several Precinct Committee Officer openings. If you are interested in serving contact me. The Republican Women’s Club meets the 2nd Monday of each month at Izzy’s in Kelso at 12 noon. Men are welcome! There are many local non-partisan races open in 2017 and these boards, councils, and commissions provide grassroots opportunities to serve in governance. The filing period is May 15-19 and the list can be found at: Whether you choose to run or support candidates that will further the cause of liberty I would encourage you to become involved.
