Next Wash Co. Republican Club Meeting - February 27

Fresh Ideas, Bold Initiative


 On Wednesday, February 27, 2019,  the Funkstown American Legion is the place to be!  At 7pm, enter the Legion's Ballroom entrance and watch a Washington County Republican Club meeting turn into something else entirely.  Feel the energy of Nicolee Ambrose.

This firecracker is a grassroots activist, political commentator, and the statewide elected Republican National Committeewoman for Maryland.

In her role, Nicolee represents Maryland to the Republican National Committee (RNC), where she is one of three votes from Maryland on issues deciding the future of the national Republican Party.  

 Ms. Ambrose is a FOX News Radio Political Analyst, and regularly speaks at events throughout Maryland and across the nation.  She regularly appears on TV shows such as ABC’s “Square Off” and McMedia’s “21 This Week,” and has also appeared on BBC Television News and BBC World Radio News.

The Christmas list of this woman's contributions is so long that I was going nuts trying to condense it for this column, so I quit. You'll just have to come out and see for yourself. You'll walk away with more than you bargained for.

Why Join the Washington County Republican Club?

Be Informed and Connected

The Washington County Republican Club represents a large number of people who share your values for the common good.  The Club stimulates discussion, creativity, leadership and activism on the social/political issues for which we are passionate.   With policy briefings and updates by speakers and other leaders, every opinion is welcomed, debated, and in the end, better founded than before. You will not only be better informed about the issues, but also network with other involved, interesting people including elected officials, candidates and other community figures.

Be truly represented

In order for your views to be represented in public office, you vote for candidates who best represent your view. The Club works diligently to elect such candidates. Not only will you know more about officials, you will have opportunities to get to know them and learn who truly represents your view.

Maximize your voice

Joining with other Republicans to hold official’s feet to the fire, giving your input, and telling them what you expect of them amplifies your voice. The WCRC promotes what matters. We speak respectfully, yet loudly, and we are heard.

Be part of the action between elections.

The real action happens in between elections. That’s when people need to be educated, supporting structures need to be built, and the candidates you helped to elect need your input and guidance. With a political arena looking increasingly like life down Alice’s rabbit hole, citizen participation is essential to ensure a rational path to the future. The Washington County Republican Club accepts the challenge.
