State Chair's Corner
Aloha Republicans,
I hope this message finds you in good spirits and great health. I am happy to share some exciting news and updates from our party.

The 2024 race is heating up, and we are excited to announce that two Republican candidates have officially submitted to be on the ballot for the upcoming Presidential elections, President Donald Trump and Ambassador Nikki Haley. This is a significant step towards a promising future for our state and Country. We are anticipating additional submissions and I will inform you once they are received. It is important that we get as many people involved in the Presidential Caucus. You can find more information on our new website, [link removed].

Now, more than ever, we need to rally around our shared principles and values. The road ahead is challenging, and to navigate it successfully, it's imperative that "We Stand United". Our unity is not just about our collective strength, but about ensuring the citizens of Hawaii have the representation and leadership they deserve.

To be successful as a party and to truly serve our state, it's important that we focus on election integrity and grassroots mobilization. I urge all of you to get involved. We need every hand on deck and boots on the ground. Together, we can make a difference.

We have received three submissions for the position of Vice Chair of Coalitions: Mike Jauch, Sheryl Bieler, and Jacob Wiencek. Also, we are now accepting nominations for the position of Vice Chair of Communications due to the recent resignation of Monique Deponte. The Executive Committee has temporarily appointed Jennifer Hunt from Maui to fill the role. We look forward to having these positions filled at the next State Committee meeting scheduled on November 16th.

Mark your calendars for December 16th! We'll be hosting our Christmas fundraiser at the HRP headquarters. Join us for an evening filled with joy, camaraderie, and cheer. And guess what? Santa will be making a special appearance! We are also in the final stages of confirming details for the State convention in May. Stay tuned for more information for the conventions, our Prince Kuhio event, and Lincoln Day Dinner.

Our party's success lies in our unity and the collective efforts of each and every member. Whether it's election integrity, fundraising, or supporting our activities, your contribution is invaluable. Let's come together and show Hawaii what the Republican Party stands for!

Mahalo for your continued support. I look forward to seeing many of you on November 5th at the Sam Slom Celebration of Life, November 18th on the Big Island, December 16th in Honolulu and in our future endeavors.
Warmest Regards,

Tamara McKay

For Planning Purposes

1. Candidate Recruitment - Have you ever given any thought about where good political candidates come from? What sort of individuals do you want running for office? Egotistical, self-important politicians or capable humble public servants? You would probably prefer the humble public servant, but these are exactly the sort of people who don’t think of themselves as candidates.

If you want better public officials for your local community then you must RECRUIT THEM!

One of the most important functions of our party is to recruit good candidates. It is one of the most effective ways to improve your community and it costs little more than some time and attention.

Don’t leave the leadership of your community to chance. Candidate recruitment is one of the most important functions you can play.

Our Vice Chair of Candidate Recruitment and Training Teri Savaiinaea is actively recruiting for the 2024 elections, submit the name of a potential candidate HERE ([link removed]) .

2. Precinct/District Election Meetings (February 1-14) - These election meetings will be focusing on electing delegates to the 2024 State Convention and filling vacancies in the Precinct and District leadership for the 2024 elections. Elected/appointed delegates will attend their County Conventions (if any) and the 2024 State Convention. The business of the 2024 State Convention will be to elect a new National Committeeman and Committeewoman, as well as approve our platform proposed by the Issues, Program and Platform/Resolutions Committee and possibly bylaw amendments proposed by the Rules Committee. Now is the time to begin looking locations to conduct your Precinct and District meetings.

3. Voting in 2024 - We may not like mail in voting, drop boxes, or early voting, but we need to master the rules to beat the Democrats at their own game. We must get tougher and fight harder to cast our votes and get our ballots turned in earlier so Democrats can’t rig the polls against us on Election Day.

The Hawaii Republican Party strongly encourages everyone to vote in person at a County Voting Service Center as soon as possible after they open. If you have to use a drop box, we highly recommend using a drop box at the County's main locations, i.e. on Oahu thats either Honolulu Hale or Kapolei Hale. These main locations are the securest due to the public location and video surveillance.

We strongly discourage returning your voted ballot via mail. Think about it, would you put $500 in an envelope and mail it to a family member...we think not!

In addition to ensuring our votes count, we must also be part of the election process to insure it is secure. Beginning after the New Year, the Hawaii Republican Party will be asking you to get involved with our elections as official voting workers and watchers. Stay tuned.
