The Valley Endorses Lynn Haueter for RPLAC Chair

This Thursday, the Voting members of RPLAC (and Alternate Members such as myself) should vote in Lynn Haueter by Acclamation .  And there should be a motion to praise Chairwoman Barnett for the great work she has done.  (again, by acclamation)

Since I was introduced to the Future Chairwoman by my friend (and Marsha Tookey Golden Bear Winner) Susan Abato, I cannot praise Mrs. Haueter enough. 

Out of the 3,143 Counties in these United States, the candidate who wins Los Angeles wins California (and the 55 Electoral votes).  Thanks to these rising leaders (such as Mrs. Haueter), we who are on the Right in the City of Angels are spreading that word. 

And we have a leader who, like her predecessor, wants to shout those words from on high.  Every Republican County Committee that wants to win a longer term majority should start donating money to RPLAC today.

Now, let me introduce the next Chairwoman:

Her first vote was for California Governor Ronald Reagan in 1980 and she has supported every Republican Presidential candidate since. Currently, she serves on the 38th ADC (up in Santa Clarita); the CRP Platform Committee and also the Executive Committee as well. Under the last RPLAC Administration, she was Assistant Treasurer and Intern co-ordinatior.  (very important, she knows about the funds and the youth!).  Also, she serves as Vice Chair for the [Santa Clarita] CRA and the Executive Board of Santa Clarita Republican Woman's Federated. 

She currently serves as District Representative on State Senator Tony Strickland's staff (and her husband is the District Chief of Staff to Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon), thus she has the Established Elected officials in RPLAC's corner.
And let me quote directly from her FB Wall on her goals for RPLAC: 

Each AD should adopt a plan of voter registration based on a two year goal of raising registration in their district. Information on voter registration can be found on the County Registrar Recorder's web site. A suggested increase of at least 3% should be stressed. This can be accomplished by a combination of volunteer efforts and a paid bounty program. AD's should work with volunteer Republican clubs in their respective AD's to assist them in meeting their goal. Clubs can be asked to report their progress at the AD monthly meeting. In turn AD's can develop a spreadsheet showing the progress made and which can be assimilated into a County spreadsheet. To maximize registration the AD's should develop a calendar of events in the district, and work with clubs and volunteers to assure coverage at these events. Starting January 1, 2012 voters will be able to register on line. RPLAC needs to work with the CRP to develop a coordinated strategy for this new process.
Each AD should be encouraged to develop their own fundraising plan. RPLAC needs to secure a Finance Chair with a supporting committee of key donor's and elected leaders. A fundraising goal should be developed with an action plan to achieve it.

RPLAC needs a press operation geared to the local and ethnic press communicating at least once a month then shifting in August 2012 to twice a month. A GOP speaker's bureau and list should be created. (RFW has a tremendous resource of speakers and should be consulted in the development of a list) The list should be provided to all AD's and community groups based on the needs of the group and the policy involved.

RPLAC needs a presence associated with Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc, to find volunteers, educate the public and reach the all important youth voter. A policy for how we use these new social media outlets needs to be approved ASAP and immediately implemented.

While this is the responsibility of each AD, RPLAC needs to monitor and receive reports and assist where necessary each AD in their efforts. AD's should provide, as part of their monthly report, the number of precincts in their district, how many precinct captains they have and a spreadsheet detailing their progress.

This committee shall be tasked with developing a needs assessment for County HQ's, number and location, as well as working with existing HQ's maintained by AD's. This committee can assist AD's in ways to secure a HQ's and the proper ways in which to operate a HQ's

AD's should develop an ethnic makeup of their district. The Registrar Recorder has an ethnic breakdown of each AD on their website. Los Angeles County has dozens of ethnic groups, from Chinese to Persian. We should concentrate on the largest and most geographically defined of these groups.

Once a county and individual AD ethnic surveys are completed each AD should appoint one person, either a committee member or leading activist to head up their outreach program. This will be another county meeting report item.

Using the Chinese community as an example, here are some suggested areas of approach:

Churches or Temples
Chinese Chamber of Commerce and localized business groups
Providing speakers to Chinese schools.
Attending and supporting Chinese social and cultural events
Surveying the public policy needs of the community
Holding Townhall forums to listen to the community
Talking with the Chinese press

In LA County, success means being part of these communities, not outsiders looking in.


Good targets. Good goals.  

And Future RPLAC Chairman Hueter's favorite political quote:

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

"When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it".
