For Those in the Know

Carson City Republican Party

Weekly Update for 4/10/24

By Susan Ruch, Chairperson


Election Update/Poll Working

Attention, all Republicans. The time to act is now. Please sign up to be a poll worker. In

2022, we made a difference, and we need to do it again in 2024. Let's not forget the

significance of the Republican Party's return to poll work in 2020, which marked the

beginning of our resurgence. Refresh your memory of critical history: The Republican

National Committee Consent Decree of 1982. I will repost the historical facts on our

website again for your review. This Consent Decree prevented Republicans from

working at the polls for more than 30 years. In 2022, we were vigilant at the polls; the

Dems were displeased by our vigilance. This year, it has been reported that the

Democrats are outnumbering us in registering to work the polls. Please help sign up.

Your schedule is flexible; you get paid, and your County and State need you. Go

immediately to the Clerk Recorders Office on Muser Street and sign up for poll working.

We need people for the General Election in November. Your State and Country needs

you. "#Poll Working 2024”.

Voter Registration

This past Saturday, we spent the afternoon registering Voters and collecting signatures

for the Voter ID Initiative at Carson’s Wine Walk. During the afternoon, we collected

over 150 signatures. We need all citizens of Carson City to take the time to sign this

critical Ballot initiative. You may come to the CCRP Headquarters to sign the petition

Monday through Friday. We need every Republican to vote this year. Your vote and help

are crucial; we will make a difference, and you're helping save your Country. If you want

to assist, call 775 841-1800 and ask for Elyse Johnston, who has agreed to chair our

voter registration committee.

We are continually adding new events to our Calendar. Check regularly; we also add

events from our neighboring counties. To check out all the fun and exciting activities,

select the Events tab on our Website,, or go to our

calendar on the Website. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter/X, Instagram, and LinkedIn

First Fridays

We have decided to cancel the First Friday of next month due to the Nevada State

Convention. Our CCRP board will be in South Tahoe for the State Convention. Please look

for our location in June, which will be listed on our calendar, Our second Vice Chair, Marie King, has been the key

person for two years making these events happen. Contact Marie if you know of a

restaurant or bar that would like to host our event: 661 414-6064.


On April 13, we will be holding A Better School Expo. This year, we will hold the event at

the Carson City Senior Center, 911 Beverly Dr., in the Nevada Room from 10 AM to 1 PM.

The event will have representatives from private schools, online schools, homeschooling,

co-ops, and information on Summer Camps for this summer. Parents, Grandparents, and

the public are welcome. Our Children are the future; we must stop the indoctrination and

improve the education standards in Nevada for our children. We have suggested a $10


Candidate Open House

Candidate Open House: Starting Wednesday, April 17, we will hold our first Open House

from 4 to 6 PM for Candidates of all political races. The Candidates who have already

committed to attending: Candidate Dr. Fred Simon, US Congress, Jim Shirk, Mayor

Candidate, Tyson League, Justice of the Peace, Lucia Maloney, Board of Supervisors, Joy

Trushenski, School Board. We will continue the Open House until the Primary in June. The

Open House will allow you to speak with the candidates from the School Board race to

the top, including the US Senate Race. If candidates inform us early, we will advertise their

attendance. We will offer light snacks. Our calendar will show candidates who have

scheduled each week. Come out for our First of many Candidates Open Houses April 17.

General Membership Meeting

April 25, our General Meeting will start at 6:30 P.M. in the Craft 55 Room of the Casino

Fandango, a smaller room off Palm Court. We have two exciting items on our agenda:

This month, we will hold an election for State Committeemen through Proclamation. We

have requested members send a bio if they want to run for our board as State

Committeeman. We have received four bios that will fill all the openings; they have been

vetted as requested. Therefore, we will hold the election by proclamation at the General

Meeting. We will introduce the Candidates and vote them in at that time without each

person standing and giving a speech. All the candidates understand that there are

considerable commitments as a State Committeeman, such as chairing a committee and

expected to travel twice a year for the State Meetings. This includes traveling to Las Vegas

or other rural counties periodically.

We will also host US Senate Candidate Tony Grady at the meeting. Please take the time if

you haven’t heard Lt. Col. Tony speak. He is a viable candidate for the U.S. Senate. At the

end of the meeting, we will allow additional Candidates who attend 2 to 3 minutes to

speak. This is the best way to decide who to vote for in the Primary.

We Need Your Help

Volunteering for the CCRP

If you are frustrated and want to volunteer but are unsure what to do, please join us on

April 10, 4 to 6 PM, at the Carson City Republican Headquarters. We will host an Open

House with light refreshments for people to stop by and see how you can assist. We will

have volunteers to answer questions and chairs of Standing Committees (Booth

Committee, Parade Committee, Voter Registration, Precinct, Ballot Harvesting) and more

information. We are the most welcoming and fun CCRP ever, so join our family and make

a difference. You can sign up on our website,, to

complete the volunteer form or come to our office. We have an election to win in 2024!

We will be working with Turning Point Action on Ballot Chasing. We will start now to

fully understand and practice how to ensure that most Republicans in Carson effectively

City vote this all-important year. If you are interested, let us know. We need many people

to tackle Carson City during the Primary and General Election.

Do you believe we should have a Voter ID? Most citizens of the U.S. believe in Voter ID.

We are on a mission to collect signatures for VOTER ID for a Ballot Initiative for the

November Ballot. We are trying to collect 1,500 by the end of April. Please call

Headquarters to sign up. We will be door-knocking on the first warmer weekend, making

it very easy to collect signatures, and everyone agrees with this. You may go to our

Website and fill out the online Volunteer Application form.' Join the ranks of dedicated

volunteers. Our state and country

CRP Office and What We Offer

We have a library of interesting political books for you to enjoy. Stop by and select your

next book: Knowledge is Power. We would appreciate the donation if you had current

political books you would like to share with our readers.

We offer a vast selection of political merchandise for donations. We have political shirts,

flags, buttons, hats, bumper stickers galore, and patriotic brooches. Stop in during our

office hours, 10 to 4, Monday through Friday, and 10 to 2 Saturday.


We have a Membership Application on our Website and at our CCRP office. Membership is

free. Suppose you are a registered Republican in Carson City. In that case, you can join by

attending two consecutive CCRCC general membership meetings, with the third meeting

being voted in as a voting member. Attending an approved volunteer activity and office

work may also count as attendance.


CCRP will be vital in Ballot Assistance/Ballot Harvesting in Carson City during the General

Election in November. This year, we decided to have paid ballot chasers instead of paid

door knockers. CCRP has been challenged to raise $1500 by June 1st, and a generous

donation will match that amount. We need every Republican Vote this November; it is

now or never. We are asking for your help to achieve this goal. Please stop by the office

with your donation. You can donate online through our website or by mail. Please

indicate it is for our Ballot Assistance program. We feel this is a must-program to help win

this election. Thank you in advance for your generosity; we couldn’t have done this

without you.

We also have three special donor programs:

Major Donor - $85 monthly recurring gift or $1,000 or more.

Booster Boster Donor: $45 monthly recurring gift or $500 or more donation.

Please support us with any of these programs. Thank you!

"Angel Donner"—Please consider being an "Angel" donor. An "Angel" donor

contributes any amount up to $200 to help match what we collect when we

"pass the hat" at our membership meeting (any amount is appreciated). Our

Angel Donner will receive a copy of the film "A Letter to the American Church " and a

bottle of wine next month.

Please help in any way you can. What do we do with our funds? Donations help

support the Headquarters, pay for our slate cards, mailings, outreach to help grow the

party, and more. We operate entirely on donations only. We couldn't do it without you.

We greatly appreciate all your contributions.

Thank you, Susan Ruch, Chairman
