In a statement released after his re-election as Chairman of the Whatcom County Republican Party on December 13, 2014 Chairman Charlie Crabtree voiced his goals for the party in the upcoming two years.
“We need to build on what we have learned in the recent past in Whatcom County and move forward with a more permanent structure that allows our younger voters to become involved in all the areas of party functions, including Communications, Grassroots organizing and fund raising ; to ensure the Republican message is fostered locally for the party into the future.” Crabtree said.
Crabtree Continued: ”We need to make certain all of Whatcom County is included in our future plans and continue our identification, get out the vote and Registration programs to widen our growing base even further.”
Concerning the 2015 -2016 campaign cycles the reelected chairman said: “In 2015 we need to work hard to make certain all facets of public input are garnered for the Charter Review process and to make certain the citizens are heard in this once in 10 year process. In 2016 we need to win Whatcom County for all of our candidates.”
“Finally we need to use the tools I talked about to work hard to elect like minded conservatives throughout Whatcom County.
I look forward to working with our great team of officers, executive board members, and precinct committee officers to bring better government to Whatcom County.”
