On Thursday, November 19th, the Benton County Republicans held their annual "We the People" Appreciation Dinner at The Clubhouse in Adair Village with a nice buffet dinner by Valley Catering. Chairman Jerry Jackson welcomed all and announced that he has filed to run for County Commissioner. He introduced Carolyn Webb, president of Benton County Republican Women and Stella Guenther Immediate Past President and extended thanks to the BCRW for all the work they do. Carolyn spoke briefly and Stella informed attendees about the Dictionary Project and that the Club is selling Christmas Wreaths and Swags to support this important project. As the new Precinct Committee Person Chair, Jacob Vandever fired up the PCP's. Bill Currier, chair of the Oregon Republican Party was the featured speaker and he presented a very positive message for the 2016 elections. State Representative Mike Nearman spoke briefly on potential headway for Republicans in the Oregon House. Jo Rae Perkins, candidate for U.S. House talked about her conservative values and asked guests for their vote. Heartfelt appreciation went to the guests attending the dinner for they are the wonderful local Republicans, who serve as PCP's or  spend time, energy and give valuable support to the Republican party year in and year out; and the Oregon State University College Republicans, who are eager and enthusiastic to make a difference in GOP politics on campus and in the community.
