FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Marion County Republican Party, Salem, OR
June 25, 2014
The recent support, by soon to be retiring Rep. Vicki Berger, for Chuck Lee, a recent Democrat now registered as an Independent, leaves us nearly speechless.
We find it more than ironic in these challenging times that Mrs. Berger waited until after her announced retirement to make known her actual beliefs. We guess all those GOP meetings where she had discussions with local Republicans, and gave speeches on behalf of GOP issues were disingenuous.
We in the Marion County GOP stand by our goal of electing constitution loving citizens who believe in following the Oregon Republican Party Platform for the hardworking citizens of Oregon.
We support the voting Republicans of Marion County’s HD25 choice, Bill Post. To do otherwise would be contrary to the Mission of this County GOP.

Plays and movies hit you at the beginning to draw you in, a few memorable actions throughout, but to make sure you remember it (surely recommend it), bring down the house at the end.Read more
Admitting that he missed it when he predicted that tax reform — read sales tax — would be hot on the agenda for this short session of the legislature, Rep.

The 2014 campaign season is off to a great start and the Marion County GOP has lots of great activities planned in the coming months.

We have two critical elections this year: a state-wide primary on May 20th, and a national mid-term on November 4th. This means more opportunities to elect great conservatives to office, but it means more work as well. We need your help to be successful!Read more
Now that we are into an important political new year, you may wonder, just what is the Marion County GOP Executive Committee doing? Actually, members have been busy this past year building a base system and organization that helps Marion County GOP’s PCPs, so we can elect the best candidates. Here’s a brief summary:Read more
