Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Republican Party. Candidates rely on our loyal party supporters, voters, and volunteers to win elections and help strengthen the Republican Party here in our county. Johnson County Republican Party is committed to providing our local candidates the help they need to win elections—from the top of the ballot to the bottom of the ticket.
To achieve this critical objective, we need the help of volunteers like you—grassroots supporters who can be the conduit between Republican candidates and voters. There are a lot of things to do and JCRP can help provide the opportunities, training, assistance, and support.
Volunteer of the Quarter: Kay Rutherford
“In 2008 I decided it was my duty to learn more about the political world and find ways to contribute; so I began reading, watching, listening, attending meetings and events, identifying specific candidates and issues to support. When I had the opportunity to volunteer at the 2008 Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul, I did so and found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The following year I proudly participated in the Taxpayer March on Washington, September 12, 2009. Several years ago I became a precinct committeewoman and started receiving Friday’s Fast Five and KSGOP Seen & Heard emails, wonderful publications that inform me about local and state issues and events. This year I began working in the JCRP office one day a week and am excited about helping in any way I can between now and November 2014. While finding my way in the political world, I have met many wonderful people who share my interests and concerns. Also, I am pleased that I am taking action rather than just talking about my concerns and desires for my community, state and country. I encourage those who read this and are thinking about becoming politically involved to take that first step: attend a meeting, walk for a candidate, make a phone call, join a group. The rewards are many.”
