Come to an Event

Like-minded friends await!

If you have a little time to spare, and it’s your first time attending a CD5 event, we suggest coming to area events. District leaders (and occasionally area candidates) are often in attendance. It’s a great way to connect in a casual atmosphere.

Whether it’s a large donation or small, every dollar given is greatly appreciated. All donations stay local to help support candidates and outreach efforts. Click here to see how you can support and get a full refund!

How You Can Help:

Local Republican organizations like ours cannot be effective, or even survive, without strong volunteers. We have formed subcommittees to help candidates this year and beyond.

Volunteering should be fun. We want to discover what your natural skills and strengths are, and use this knowledge to place you in a committee that will be the best fit for you. We can’t wait to meet you!
