Welcome, Bill Christiansen

This afternoon we named Bill Christiansen to the top staff position at the CRP.

I've known Bill for over ten years as someone whose enthusiasm for our party is matched by a first class campaign skillset. (Bill will serve as COO (Interim) while a full search is conducted to fill the term.)

I first met Bill when he was the Executive Director of the Republican Party of Orange County, long a model county party organization. When I was Chairman of our party in San Diego County, many of our most successful programs were based on models established in "the OC."

Bill took the opportunity to serve as the ED for the Arizona state party before returning to California to direct the CRP's V6 program last year. His extensive knowledge at both the state and county levels means Bill has the background necessary to continue the party building programs we've initiated over the last several months.

As we go forward, the role of our volunteers in the counties is key to victory. The thousands of Republican volunteers who go door to door in our precinct organizations help to make the Republican Party "personal" for hundreds of thousands of Republicans who would otherwise have little connection to the party beyond what is on the TV or radio. They make the party real, and it shows at the ballot box.

Moving forward, our county party organizations are essential to success. Precinct organizations and voter registration programs are most effectively directed locally, with support from the state party and campaigns where those divisions of labor make sense.

Please join me in welcoming Bill Christiansen back to the California Republican Party!
