Chairman Raja Letter Encouraging Support for our Candidates

Dear Friend,
With less than 30 days before the general election, I am strongly encouraging you to please get involved.  The only way to ensure that Democrats stay out of power in Washington and in Harrisburg is with your help! 
Please join our team as we contact voters at their door and on the phone.   We are looking for committee members to assist with our door to door activity in Allegheny County.  We need all hands on deck for the next four weeks to turn PA Red this November. We will be leading a group of canvassers every Saturday (or weekday) beginning at 9 am between now and Election Day.
If you're interested, please contact your closest field representative from the list below or defer to Amanda Boris at 724-288-2875 or aboris@pagop.org.

Volunteers Needed
We would love for you to come and volunteer!
  • Phone banking
  • Literature drops
  • Stuffing envelopes
  • Door to door with our representatives
PA GOP is starting to knock on doors for the Toomey and Trump campaigns. It is a great way to get involved this summer. Recent polling has shown a tight race in Pennsylvania; we can be the tipping point.

If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering, please contact Amanda Boris at aboris@pagop.org or 724-288-2875  
Inform RCAC of Upcoming Events
Between now and the fall General Election, there will be many community events such as parades, community days, and festivals happening thorough out Allegheny County.   RCAC would like to partner with the local committees, and candidate campaigns in ensuring a presence at these events.  We believe this is an excellent opportunity to recruit volunteers and committee members, distribute candidate information, and register individuals to vote. If you are aware of any upcoming events, please email the details to John Schnaedter at Director@rcac.net.

Words of Wisdom

"Many conservatives think that articles, books, blogs, talk radio, and FOX News can win the battle for us.  They cannot.  These things merely verify our beliefs, which is certainly good.  But only action on the ground, in the streets, at meeting halls, in protests, at school boards, local community councils, zoning boards, state houses, and in the offices of congressmen will win the battle.  It is action that we need, action from us, we the people......If we don't fight for our way of life ourselves, we will lose it.  Each world belongs to those who fight for it."  

- Spero, Aryeh from "Push Back, Reclaiming the American Judeo-Christian Spirit"
