On behalf of Deschutes County Republicans, welcome to our website. We hope you find it helpful in describing our activities and explaining our positions on the issues. We welcome anyone who shares our beliefs in limited government, individual liberty and personal responsibility.


As Republicans, we are proud of our country and our President. Much has been accomplished under the leadership of President Trump. We have a booming economy and the lowest unemployment rate in history. Our military is being rebuilt and the President has restored the country to a position of strength.  President Trump has nominated solid, conservative judges to the Supreme Court and to our federal courts. He is working to ensure safe borders and a sensible immigration system.


In Deschutes County, we are grateful for the election of my predecessor Patti Adair as Deschutes County commissioner. She joins fellow Republicans Phil Henderson and Tony DeBone and will help to ensure that county resources and tax revenues are used wisely.


The leadership team of the Deschutes County Republican Party will work closely with the Oregon Republican Party to nominate good candidates for local and state races. We must do a better job of identifying strong candidates who support conservative principles and the President.


Much needs to be done to correct the path the state has taken under the domination of the Democrat Party. Our educational system is ranked in the bottom five in the country, our status as a sanctuary state protects illegal alien felons from deportation, our tax dollars pay for abortion on demand, and our Public Employee Retirement System (PERS) is approaching insolvency. The response of the Democrats in Salem and Governor Brown is to find new ways to tax Oregonians and to establish onerous new restrictions on the Second Amendment. We must restore a sense of balance to Oregon politics to keep the Democrats from passing more taxes and more laws that infringe on the rights and freedoms of the citizens of Oregon.


We have a message link which you can use to ask questions. Your message will come directly to me and I will respond as promptly as I can. I look forward to meeting you at one of our meetings. Thank you for your interest in Deschutes County Republicans.
