The following is an inspirational message from "Sundance" at theconservativetreehouse.com (here), which applies to our struggle here in Multnomah County between now and November.
Soon you will be called into action. In the interim do not worry yourself with dark imaginings. Turn your fear into resolve; turn that resolve into action. I am not going to be discouraged… check that…. I purposefully choose not to be discouraged. Each of us has the ability to control our thoughts.Read more

The Multnomah County Republican Party wants Portland residents to remember that a well-recognized riot control technique is to encircle a rioting crowd, arrest every person in it for riot, confiscate all the video evidence, and then use it to charge the wrongdoers with felony riot, holding and identifying all participants while the evidence is quickly screened. The Portland Police Bureau demonstrated it could do exactly that on June 4, 2018, but the City of Portland rejected this policy in favor of protecting the civil rights of those who disobey police orders to leave illegal, violent and destructive riot scenes—and now violate curfew orders.Read more
The Executive Committee of the Multnomah County Republican Party has issued its recommendations for the nonpartisan races in Multnomah County (below). Party bylaws bar us from favoring any Republican candidate in a contested Republican primary. In some races, the Committee could not bring itself to recommend anyone.Read more

Who am I?
My name is Pat Castles and I am running for the office of state representative in District 38. My district lies on the west side of the Willamette River and includes part of southwest Portland and much of Lake Oswego—a tail of two cities and two counties (Multnomah and Clackamas). I have two degrees in political science and have been involved local in local politics for a number of years.Read more
The Multnomah County Republican Party (MCRP) is pleased to report that over 1,000 people have signed its online petition to re-open Oregon for business (available here: https://www.multnomahgop.org/covid_19_petition). While Oregon has failed to report results from random antibody testing of the population to confirm the percentage of Oregon’s population that has already acquired immunity to the virus, there is ample data available from tests throughout the country to confirm that the fatality rate of the virus is a fraction of early estimates.
“It is well within the capacity of Oregon’s government to protect those known to be vulnerable to the virus, isolate those confirmed to be infected, and open most workplaces and small businesses, using prudent precautions to limit risks associated with large gatherings,” said MCRP Chair James Buchal. “There is no justification for continuing massive restrictions on the freedom of Oregonians to make their own risk assessments, and protect themselves, their families and their customers or clients.”
The Multnomah County Republican Party has increasing concern that Oregon's Democratic Leadership is taking no action to get Oregonians back to work. To show your support for loosening the restrictions that are unnecessarily destroying careers and businesses all over Oregon, please sign our petition here: https://www.multnomahgop.org/covid_19_petition

PRESS RELEASE: Cascade Policy Institute Publishes Comprehensive Study of Metro's Parks and Nature Program
PORTLAND, OR – In the next week or so, Portland area voters will receive their November ballots. One of the items is Measure 26-203: a $475 million bond measure by Metro, the regional government for the Portland area. Metro wants the money so it can buy more land for its so-called parks and nature program. Measure 26-203 will raise the region’s property taxes by about $60 million a year. The $475 million request is larger than the two previous Metro natural areas bonds combined, which were $135.6 million dollars in 1995 and $227.4 million dollars in 2006.Read more
