Do You Have President Trump's Back

Since Election Day, the radical left and their allies in the media have been working overtime to viciously attack and undermine President Trump.
 
To put it bluntly: They want to kill our agenda to Make America Great Again!

Our party, President Trump and GOP elected officials will continue to be targeted by paid protestors and radical leftists until we fight back.

We need your help right NOW to fight back. With your help, we will recruit and train a grassroots army of new volunteers committed to defeating the radical left and Making America Great Again.

Will you show that you have President Trump's back by contributing $100, $50, $25 or even $5 today by going to this Link.

Thank you for all that you do to keep our party strong,


Grassroots Tip
 
Designing Yard Signs

As local primary elections quickly draw near, this is good time to think about designing yard signs for local candidates.  You can design a miniature scale version of your sign on a computer using a word processing program like MS-Word or Adobe Acrobat.  A well-designed campaign sign is very important to winning an election.  In order to be effective, a campaign yard sign must be easy to read.  Do not use superfluous text or graphics.  The only text necessary is the candidate's name and the office that he or she is seeking.  For example:
Joe
SMITH
for Mt Lebanon Council

The candidate's last name should be printed in capital letters and be at least twice as large as the rest of the text.  Those blessed with short last names should take full advantage of the situation by printing their last names even larger.  Do NOT include photographs, slogans, or graphics on the sign which only reduce  readability.  Do not use fancy fonts which are difficult to read.  Remember that the purpose of a sign is to make the candidate's name visible and readable from as far away as possible.  Being too artsy-craftsy with your design will only deter from this purpose.  The candidate's name on the sign should be consistent with how it will appear on the ballot.  For example, if the candidate's name on the ballot will appear as "William Jones," then the candidate's signs should NOT say "Bill Jones."  Also, use the candidate's first name or nickname by which most people know him on both the sign and the ballot.  It's better to be informal with the candidate's name.  Middle names or initials should be avoided.  "Jim Johnson" is better than "James Chester Johnson III."  To make the sign more readable at night, print the sign with colored background and white letters if you can afford the extra expense.  Print signs in bright colors like red, blue, and green.
