Resolutions passed at Convention
Every four years, the Clallam County Republican Party (CCRP) calls a countywide convention of all Republicans, for the purpose of instituting a county party platform, passing resolutions, and electing delegates to the State Convention.
The Party Platform states clearly states the principles of the County Republican Party, and the Resolutions offer more indepth statements on a variety of issues.
You can read the Party Platforms – County, State and National – here.

Resolutions passed by Central Committee
Resolutions – which offer a statement of principle concerning a particular issue – can be written and presented for approval by the CCRP Central Committee at any time during the year. The Central Committee is made up of elected Precinct Committee Officers (PCO’s) elected to represent the citizens in each precinct.
Following are Resolutions that have been passed concerning various issues:
Resolution for an Alternative to Proposed Sales Tax Increase
CCRP Central Committee stands for an alternative method of increasing county revenue other than a sales tax increase
The Clallam County Republican Party Central Committee passed a Resolution favoring an alternative to a proposed sales tax increase on the ballot, written and presented by Sue Forde, based on a presentation by Kaj Ahlburg.
On October 9, 2017 at its monthly central committee meeting, the Clallam County Republican Party (CCRP) adopted a resolution against the proposed sales tax increase.
The CCRP believes in the great work being done by the employees at the Juvenile Detention Center, and fully supports their tireless efforts to make a difference in the troubled youth in the program. Our detention center is, by all accounts, the best in Washington State. We commend all those that have worked tirelessly to accomplish this.
However, we feel it is incumbent upon the County to not use a tax increase to try to solve budgetary issues. A tax increase should be the last resort, and should not take the place of making hard decisions that would achieve the same results of a tax increase.
The CCRP further recognizes the fact that this issue is before us, in large part, by the “Unfunded Mandates” placed upon the counties in Washington State by our Legislators (both past and present). We call upon our elected State Legislators to recognize the problem they have placed upon all the counties, and to look towards finding a fix. At a minimum, they should fully fund the legislative burdens they place on local governments. (News release issued by Chair Matthew Rainwater on Oct. 10, 2017)

Resolution for Maintaining Our Sovereignty
RESOLUTION – Maintaining Our Sovereignty
The following resolution was voted upon and unanimously passed at the June 15th, 2009 Central Committee meeting.
“We, the Central Committee of the Clallam County Republican Party of the state of Washington hereby, by majority vote, resolve that our state should retain and maintain our sovereignty within the National Electoral College system and as such, should not relinquish control of our electoral votes to other American states as would be mandated by the National Popular Vote Compact.
“We see the National Popular Vote movement to be a method to institute a constitutional amendment to eliminate the Electoral College without following the constitutionally approved means to effect such amendments. We strongly support the existing constitutional amendment process and all of its time-proven safeguards.
