For over 150 years Ottawa County has been a beacon of conservative values and voting. Easily the most Republican county in Michigan, we provide statewide candidates more republican votes than many counties double or even quadruple our size. More importantly, as a group of true fiscal conservatives we do this at a fraction of the cost of comparable counties.
Past success, however, is meaningless if we fail to adapt to the way the world is changing. As Chair of the Ottawa County Republican Party I have made it my mission to build on our past success and help us move forward into a diversifying and increasingly digital world. This is just a taste of some of the new and exciting things that have been happening at the Ottawa GOP this summer.
Increased outreach activities
The Ottawa County GOP has made outreach a priority by engaging with community organizations such as LAUP, Upward Bound, and participating in community events such as the Multicultural Festival and Junteenth Celebrations. We are also intentionally engaging younger conservatives online and by participating in new networking organizations. Find out more about our outreach efforts on page six.

Streamlining our Operations
We have found many ways to cut costs and operate more efficiently by streamlining our office operations. This summer we set up a volunteer and donor database, collecting information accumulated over the years in one place. We are so excited about the many changes we have already put into place but more is on the horizon, so keep in touch and learn how in 2016 victory starts with us.
