A Note from Chairwoman Val Orr

Jumping in to the political arena is for those brave of heart and with a faith-filled spirit. To do so requires a leap in without any guarantee of outcome. Regardless whether it is time, talent, or treasure those that put their trust towards an organization based solely on their own beliefs and desire to make a difference in the world, are the people who inspire me.

The doers of the world, those who know what makes them tick instead of just talk, these are the people that inspire me. The courageous warriors who are in the trenches fighting for something far bigger than them, these are the people that inspire me. The genuine citizen who quietly stays the course never asking or wanting a spotlight on them, these are the people who inspire me.

Weld County Republicans embody all that. You are the salt-of-the-earth get-stuff-done people, the action-oriented doers who inspire me! I’m so fortunate I get to know you and work with you. I am humbled, that you, the Republicans of Weld County, have entrusted me as your steward for the next 2 years. I will keep my vision on the higher cause and drive on. I will always be grateful for the support you give this party, we could not do it without you!

Your generous contribution to the Weld GOP will help us continue building a strong party, fighting the threats to our freedoms, and achieving our common mission of getting Republicans elected.

In gratitude,

Val Orr

Lincoln Day Dinner 2018

“For me, this Flag, our Flag the Thirteen Stripes, Fifty Stars and the Field of Blue reminds me every day how this wonderful experiment we call a democratic republic came about. How it wasn't easy, we struggled, we fell but what we never ever have done is Give up!!” Mark ‘Oz’ Geist

You’ve seen the hit movie, “13 Hours”. We are delighted our fellow Coloradan, Mark ‘Oz’ Geist, Benghazi hero, co-author ’13 Hours’, is our keynote speaker for our Lincoln Day Dinner.

Join us January 20, 2018, to hear from the man, one of five security contractors, who withstood 13 hours of assault that night in Benghazi. Hear from the man who saved lives, confronted the lies, and wrote the truth. Hear from the man who understands the difference made by leadership and courage, on any battlefield.

Mark Geist was on the military battlefield fighting for freedom. We, the grassroots of Weld County and America, are on the political battlefield also fighting for freedom.

We know what we do today in Weld County influences America tomorrow. We put our feet solidly in American soil, Weld County Colorado. We stand firm and keep our eye on our mission. We stand for our flag. We fight for freedom in our own backyard, which influences the State of Colorado, and America. We never give up. We love our freedom and honor our freedom fighters, American heroes.

This Lincoln Day Dinner will be one to remember. Hearing from a courageous warrior and true American hero, Mark ‘Oz’ Geist, will inspire, and make you proud to be an American living in and appreciating freedom.

Abe Lincoln, the first Republican president, said: “Be sure to put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.”

Stand with us. January 20, 2018.

Colorado Campaign and Candidate Academy

Do you want to learn the “nuts and bolts” of campaigns and candidate strategies?

Why start from square one when you can learn from those who have tried and tested successful techniques?

I’ve attended several Leadership Institute’s programs in Washington DC and they are the best bang for a buck!

And, the best part, the people you will meet…you just never know, in the fascinating world of politics when your paths will cross again!
