    Note from the Chair

    Kristen Collishaw

    Hi there! Welcome to the Santa Cruz Republicans! Yes! There are many of us here, even though it may seem like you’ve been alone; you’re not!

    We are the official party of the county, elected every four years and work directly with the CAGOP to help get locals elected and appointed to positions where they can make impactful decisions with conservative values. Every single county in California has a Central Committee, and I have been meeting and working with other Chairs to see what is working in their counties to help grow our party and make a difference. There is progress happening, and we can all help make this happen!

    Truly, I’m honored to be representing our county and love living here. It doesn’t hurt that the Democrat’s business as usual approach continues to not work, and businesses and smart folks are waking up to this fact. We all have friends who have moved away, and countless other who have talked about it. Please don’t go! California is worth fighting for, and Santa Cruz County is one of the best spots in the state. Join us! Get involved! Show up!

    Our biggest issues – affordability! The taxes on top of taxes are just ridiculous and drive up the cost of everything. This election cycle has many of our members working hard to make sure these taxes don’t pass.

    Homeless and crime – everyone is affected by both of these issues. Efforts to help aren’t working, in fact, it’s getting worse! We are bringing in speakers, and after years of trying, finally got a conservative appointed to a commission to help fix the problems. We must support our law enforcement. The movements from the other side are absurd. Join us in helping take back our state and give power back to our brave police departments.

    Business – California is making it difficult to be in business here. We are trying to help navigate this process locally for those who want to start something new, as well as encourage those who live here to support all of the local businesses we can. If you have a business, let us know how we can help!

    Education – our schools are overrun with a one-sided political message. We are putting together a plan to get our voices heard. It’s not going to happen overnight, and we intend to help show all sides in Santa Cruz County. The pandemic has opened many people’s eyes to see just how deep rooted the problems are.

    Environment – Nothing wrong with eliminating plastics and reducing our footprints. Republicans typically get ripped for not caring – which of course couldn’t be further from the truth! We just don’t believe the government is the answer or the solution – the solutions will come from the private sector. The waste of taxpayer money just isn’t a good pay-off.

    We meet on the last Wednesday of most months. Please check our website for details! Our meetings are open to the public and we are working on hosting more events in 2021 so you can meet candidates, get involved in campaigns and join other Republicans to help get some balance around here.

We are bringing in speakers, and after years of trying, finally got a conservative appointed to a commission to help fix the problems. There is a statewide ballot measure that has qualified for the November ballot to readjust the problems we were left with from AB 109, Prop 47 & Prop 57. Join us in helping take back our state and give power back to our brave police departments.

    Business – California is making it difficult to be in business here. We are trying to help navigate this process locally for those who want to start something new, as well as encourage those who live here to support all of the local businesses we can. If you have a business, let us know how we can help!

    Education – our schools are overrun with a one-sided political message. We are putting together a plan to get our voices heard. It’s not going to happen overnight, but the Trump Administration signed into law that all Civics classes must have equal teachings, so we intend to help make that happen in Santa Cruz County.

    Environment – Nothing wrong with eliminating plastics and reducing our footprints. As a committee, we have adopted a beach through Save our Shores to do our part to clean up and give back to our beautiful beaches. The third Saturday morning of odd numbered months you’ll find us picking up and having some great conversations with the community at Natural Bridges. Join us!

    We meet on the last Wednesday of most months. Please check our website for details! Our meetings are open to the public and we are working on hosting more events in 2020 so you can meet candidates, get involved in campaigns and join other Republicans to help get some balance around here.

    The Santa Cruz County Republican Central Committee’s (SCCRCC) activities involve a broad range of local political strategy including voter registration, recruitment and training of candidates, and endorsement of candidates and measures at election time. They also are involved with public policy measures, fund raising and growing the local party.

    The committee consists of elected (or “regular”) participants and ex-officio participants (people who have run for public office as a Republican are given a seat on the committee until the next election for that seat). The positions on the Central Committee are non-public offices, the service is without pay, and the committee levies annual dues upon its members.

    Anyone who wishes to become a member, becomes an official member of the local party, not a member with a seat on the Central Committee. Benefits of membership include being among the first to hear about upcoming events, invitations to our annual BBQ and activities before anyone else, and the opportunity to meet and help candidates in what they require for campaigns or community engagement.
