Did you know that Corrin Rankin has run a business, served on the boards of non-profits aiding in rescuing at least two of them from ruin? That alone should move her to the top of your list for consideration.
She is also a small business owner, having owned a Bail Bond business for a number of years. Since the state of California banned Bail Bonds, she knows better than most what it is like to run a business in California. She deserves serious consideration by all.
See her platform below:
|The California Republican Party is in unprecedented peril. We’ve all heard the countless reasons of how we got here. While I believe that understanding our past and knowing our shortcomings is critical, we cannot afford to dwell upon the glory days of the past. Instead, we must look to the future and work towards success.|
As a party, we must unite, rebuild, and grow.
This is the ethos driving my platform, and the reason why I decided to run for Vice Chair of the California Republican Party.
It’s imperative that we unite. As America’s first Republican president said, “a house divided against itself cannot stand.” Our party has been plagued with internal divisions for too long. This negatively affects our ability to persuade voters, raise money, organize, and win elections. We must put our minor differences aside to defeat Democrats.
Republican Party registration in California is at a historic low, our political apparatuses are $1 million+ in debt, and our antiquated tactics and strategies have proven unable to win competitive elections. We need to do an honest assessment of where we are at in order to identify our strengths and weaknesses.
Then, we must rebuild. To do so, we must adopt innovative strategies to win elections, improve our technologies and campaign infrastructure, and evolve our messaging and marketing. We must also defend what we have left while going on the offense so we can start winning seats back.
We must also focus on growing our party. At 24 percent voter registration we cannot afford to continue our dive into the depths of irrelevance through attrition. Saying we need voter registration drives is nice, but we must concurrently develop the tools and messages required to get new voters and bring decline-to-states and Democrats into the big Republican tent.
This is how together we turn our situation around. We have to be in the fight to win the fight. Currently, we are fighting from the outside. No amount of changing our logo is going to solve this – we all need to roll up our sleeves and get to work.
We have to use our talent, infrastructure, and resources wisely. In cities where we are drastically outnumbered, we need to increase (or begin) neighborhood involvement.
As your next full-time Vice Chair, I will work to bring people together, create a consensus and develop local, neighborhood-based solutions that will brings us back into prominence across our beautiful state.
I look forward to working with you to make this happen and I ask for your vote at the California Republican Party convention in February.
I believe that Corrin offers a huge upside for the CAGOP and should be taken seriously by all the delegates. Please join me in voting for her for CAGOP Vice Chairman
