The County Central Committee is the cornerstone of the Political parties. The Party system is designed to be a “Bottoms Up” organization. i.e. decisions are made at the low level (the precinct) and flow up, thru the County Exec committee, the State central Committee, the RNC.
Unfortunately, because of the lack of diligence, this has flipped upside down, and both parties now seem to operate as a “Top Down” structure; everyone at the bottom gets their marching orders from the top.
In order to restore the parties to a bottom up structure, we need strong leadership at the county level that will say NO to the “Top Down” and say YES to the “Bottom Up”. The only way this can happen is to elect precinct committee members with conservative values to each and every county precinct.
Because every county is diverse and operates independently, we recommend using the Ohio Precinct Project as a starting point in your search for data regarding County Central Committees.
If your County Central Committee is running on strong Conservative leadership, You may wish to work directly with the party in forming a strong conservative County Central Committee.
On the other hand, if your County Party isn’t strong, lacks leadership, vision, or conservative values, then we suspect conservative groups in your county will be actively doing this in an effort to remove the weak and ineffective leaders from the county executive committees and replace them with strong, conservative leadership.
IMPORTANT – If you cannot locate any conservative groups, START ONE.
The Republican County Central Committee office terms vary from county to county. Most are 2 years, but some are 4 years. You need to verify from your local Board of Elections and Local County Party what the term lengths are for the County Central Committee members. This information is also available in the Party filings with the BOE, but you may need to dig thru to find it.
County Party Central Committees are required to file the names, address, of officers and members within the County Board of Elections. This is available from your County Board of Elections as a Public Document. This document tells you who is on the committee, Their names, addresses, precincts, and what their terms are. This is an excellent starting point for any groups who are recruiting County Central Committee members.
