The Organization

The Linn County Party participates in the activities of the Oregon Republican Party (ORP), but is an independent organization. While any Republican is welcome to attend meetings and events, membership in the Linn County Republican Central Committee (LCRCC), the official name of the party, is limited to the elected and appointed PCPs, elected Republicans representing Linn County constituents (Linn County government and the 15 cities and 48 service districts) and the members of the ORP Executive Committee.




The primary purpose of the Linn County Republican Party is the selection, promotion and election of Republican candidates to public office in Linn County. In addition, it assists in the election of Republican candidates for statewide and federal positions that impact Linn County. The party supports issues and candidates that promote conservative values.

We help the voters of Linn County get to know who their local elected Republicans are, be better informed on issues and be involved in electing candidates who believe in limited government, smart & frugal spending and common-sense solutions to problems that MAY need to be addressed by the government. We believe personal responsibility and personal liberty go hand in hand.







Core Values and Beliefs

I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person's dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.

I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all; regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.

I BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.

I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.

I BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which governs least.

I BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.

I BELIEVE Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.

I BELIEVE Americans value and should preserve out national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.

FINALLY, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
