You may or may not be aware that there are two committeepeople (formerly known as ”committeewoman” and “committeeman”) representing you as residents of the Lower Providence 2-3 Voting District. Committeepeople must be elected by you the voter, so it’s important to understand the role of a Committeeperson.

What is the role of your Committeepeople?

First and foremost, Committeepeople represent and support the concerns of YOU the Republican voter. It’s the role of Committeepeople to make sure that we endorse Republican candidates that you support on a Local, Commonwealth or National level.

Committeepeople should:

  • Support all Republican candidates, especially those Lower Providence District 2-3 voters also support.
  • Play a critical role in helping to select Republican candidates for a wide range of positions on the local, state and national levels.
  • Volunteer to help support Republican candidates.
  • Develop a “grassroots base” for the Republican party, which is one of the most important aspects of keeping in touch with all Republican neighbors in Lower Providence 2-3.
  • Maintain an updated database of the voters and keep it up-to-date with phone numbers and emails when possible.
  • Walk door-to-door to pass out literature for candidates and the party, or to gather signatures on nominating petitions to get candidates on the ballot; distribute candidate  yard signs.
  • Talk to voters to gather their thoughts and concerns on the issues of the day.
  • Make sure polling places are adequately staffed on election day.
  • Help voters to get registered or help with absentee ballots when either is needed.
  • Work to help “Get-Out-The-Vote” and energize people to vote.
  • Grow the base by reaching out to and developing young conservatives, and building a pipeline of potential candidates groomed for future openings such as school board, township supervisor, etc.
  • Participate in fundraising activities for the party and individual candidates.
  • Attend local meetings so that they can share with Lower Providence 2-3 residents information that might affect their livelihood, taxes, businesses and more.

Are Your Committeepeople Working Hard For You and the Republican Party?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I understand what is going on in District 2-3 and how it may affect my livelihood or taxes?
  • Am I confident there is an understanding of my concerns as a taxpayer, parent, or business owner?
  • Are they supporting conservative candidates you’d like to see in office, and helping to educate you as to who they are and what they stand for?
  • Have they made themselves accessible?
  • Do they contact you at times other than election time?

If you answered no to any of the above questions, consider whether or not your elected Committeepeople are truly serving you as a member of the Republican Party.
