Our Core Values
Principled leadership must stand upon foundations and core values that transcend time and societal pressures .... a position our founding fathers sympathetically affirmed in writing in terms of our endowment from the Creator.

We affirm the foundational statements of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution as binding us to principled governance. As Republicans, we look to these objective truths and reject the popular current of subjectivism leading to imprudent, errant, and unsustainable decisions -- with consequences providing merely short-term solutions while breaking the system itself.

Conservatives still understand these defining principles of smaller government, lower taxes, personal responsibility, the right to keep and bear arms and the sanctity of human life. These values will continue to win in the arena of ideas - even as we acknowledge the difficulties of advancing these ideas in the broader context of a decidedly left-leaning media culture.


Our Role
Our role as the Washington County Republican Central Committee is to work together as a team to support the conservative values of the Republican Party. Along with many other dedicated volunteers, we work vigorously through each campaign to promote Republican Candidates who have taken on the challenge to win a seat in the next election. Whether it be a National or Statewide campaign, we lead the charge needed to educate and bring awareness to the voters in Washington County. We strongly believe in the American Freedom that our forefathers fought hard to establish for all of us and we intend to keep it! -Liz Jones
