Message from the President

Here we are in the middle of August. Where has this summer gone? Enjoy these warm (hot) days! The sun’s shadows are already creating new and beautiful images. Autumn will soon be here and we face the 2018 election with hope, while working for our good and solid Republican candidates.

Welcome to our two new members! Mary Lou Long and Annette Isaksen recently joined to increase our membership to thirty-two. We are happy that you joined us and we look forward to working with you and laughing with you.


Kudos to member Billie Jean Liedahl for promoting the new Dinesh d’Souza film, DEATH OF A NATION. The film was made available to all Republican Federation clubs in a special showing before its national release. It explained the Democrat ties to Fascism and reviewed the history of Fascism in Europe and the United States. Souza’s film gave us the facts with which to fight this evil. Thank you Billie Jean for working with the theatre and selling tickets so that we could see this important film.

Primary Results

The Primary results in Kitsap County were disappointing. Club member Naomi Evans who ran for the state legislature was defeated. Naomi ran a wonderful campaign and focused on issues that are important but her message seems to have been lost in the fog of campaigning. Naomi is such a sterling candidate that she will remain a force in the community. Maybe next time, Naomi. Our other Republican candidates face up-hill fights to win and truly represent our community.

Washington Federation of Republican Women (WFRW)

The state convention will be held in October in Seattle. The Nominating committee has released the slate of officers running for the state leadership positions. Check your email as I sent the nominee list to our members.

National Federation of Republican Women

The National Federation is celebrating some of our outstanding Republican women. Jamie McCourt is one such person. Jamie is currently serving as the U.S. Ambassador to France and Monaco. NFRW is also thrilled that Congresswoman Marcia Blackburn won her primary and is now the Republican candidate to succeed Senator Bob Corker in the U.S. Senate.
