Lynn2Welcome to TalkGOP!

This site is for you if:

  • You want to improve the Republican party
  • You are a local party officer or activist
  • You want to run for a local political office
  • You want to learn how to become effective at local public service
  • You want to run a successful issue campaign for a local ballot initiative
  • You just love local politics


This blog features how-to articles and commentary on:

  1. Building up your local Republican or other conservative group
  2. Winning local elections
  3. Providing effective leadership in local elected office and appointed boards


I believe local party leaders and candidates need a resource to address their specific needs . I want to provide a community where local conservatives can network and share ideas that work on a smaller level. I hope to learn from this just as much as you.

I would invite your feedback in the comments. I hope you will share your questions and insights.
