Plum & Penn Hills Republican Committees Golf Event October 1
78 New Sign-ups and Three Registration Changes to Republican
The West Deer Republican Committee had an extremely successful booth at West Deer Community Days, held August 5th and 6th. We signed up 78 new contacts to be notified of our events and/or become involved with the committee. Many of these were under the age of 25. And three voters changed their registration to Republican. We also distributed yard signs for Trump, Keith Rothfus and Eli Evankovich along with literature for Toomey and other statewide candidates. We also have orders for additional Trump signs. We offered a simple menu and raffles for various donated items.   Our committee members worked well together to achieve these great results.
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

Words of Wisdom

"The growth of the programs [Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid], measured by rising costs, is breathtaking. In 1970, the big three consumed about 20 percent of the federal budget; by 2010, their share had doubled, to 40 percent; and by 2020 they're likely to consume more than half the budget. If we do nothing, by 2050 the big three will consume 100 percent of all expected tax receipts, forcing Congress to either eliminate all other spending or borrow to pay for it."
- Matt Kibbe from "Hostile Takeover"
