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
 
Managing Volunteer and Voter Information
Whenever you talk to someone new who expresses interest in volunteering for Republican activities, ask that person for his/her contact information and store it as soon as possible in your computer database system.  Contact information should include name, address, phone numbers, and e-mail address. You should also look up their voting district and record that as well.  Once you have stored information in a database system like Microsoft Access, you can easily create address lists, phone lists, email lists, and mailing labels.   
 
Taking the time to learn basic computer database skills will save you so much time later. When designing your database record structure, put the first and last names in separate columns as well as the address number and street name in separate columns.  This will enable you to produce lists in alphabetical order by last name or in alphabetical order by street name.
 
You can also obtain a CD free of charge with voter information for the entire county from the County Dept of Elections located in Room 604 of the County Office Building at 542 Forbes Street downtown.  You can then extract the voter data for your municipality and insert it into your own database.  This information not only provides names, addresses and party affiliation but also birthdates and past voting records.   An updated version of this information is available about 2 or 3 months after each Primary and General Election and only one copy per election is available free of charge to any voter in Allegheny County.  
 
This information is much more useful than the traditional hardcopy street lists because you can sort your database and create customized voter lists according to age, party, voting record such as for example "every Republican over 55 who voted in the 2016 Primary in District 6. 

We Have Stakes for Yard Signs
Due to a surplus of stakes being left over from the 2016 elections we currently have a large quantity of these stakes available at the RCAC headquarters. 

We have stakes that will fit both the standard 18 X 24 corrugated plastic signs or the standard 18 X 24 plastic sleeve signs. These will be given out on a first come first serve basis. 

Contact our Executive Director, Ryan Rabea, at 412-458-0068 for more information.
