Boone County Republican Superstars!
Congratulations to Tom Schweich and Vicki Hartzler!
Many of us were so involved in the State Rep and local county races that we hardly paid much attention to those most important races, State Auditor, and US Representative for Missouri's 4th Congressional District. Thanks to Mrs Hartzler's staff for providing support to the local candidates and the Boone County Republican Committee, for which are all most grateful. We never thought their candidacy was in jeopardy, since both Vicki and Tom have well entrenched reputations all across the state of Missouri. Still, one can't take anything for granted, and it was most gratifying at the end of election night to see them both win by huge margins. We predict the next two years will be most contentious at both the state and federal level. Now that the Republicans have secured majority positions in both houses at the national and Missouri level, with both of thoe bodies run by a Democrat, we think the next two years will be most contentious and difficult. Republicans, however, are the party of liberty, freedom, and integrity. We salute Vicky Hartzler and Tom Schweich and we wish them well as they press forward to bring America back to its constitutional roots.
Who Are We?
W e are the ColumbiaPachyderm Club, the original Pachyderm club founded in Columbia, Missouri in 1967 by the late George Parker. We meet every Friday for lunch at Jack's Coronado Restaurant located at the intersection of the I-70 Business Loop and Old Hwy 63. A buffet lunch begins at 11:30 A.M. and the business session begins promptly at 12:00 P.M. and ends promptly at 1:00 P.M.
We strive to have a guest speaker at each meeting. Our meetings are open to the public. We are a political club that holds Constitutional and Republican principles and as such we are oriented towards the Republican Party, but we do not endorse candidates in primaries, and we normally do not take official stands on issues. However, we are generally supportive of all candidates and we hope to be an inspiring force for the discovery and recruitment of good candidates.
To provide a practical means for broad citizen participation in politics, and to promote practical political education and the dissemination of information on our political system. To promote development of potential leaders and to assist in carrying out the principles and purposes of the Republican Party in the following fields of leadership in government, individual rights and freedoms, clean government with local emphasis, and an informed public on the status of government and the issues of the day.
