My name is Melissa Upson and I serve as both Chair of the Mason County Republican Party and as a Precinct Committee Officer.
Mason County has been my home for nearly 40 years, it is where I now raise my children and where I hope to see conservative values prosper. I believe in preserving our individual liberties as outlined in the Constitution, and I believe it takes a true grassroots effort to ensure we elect Republicans who will defend those rights and liberties we value so much. I would like to personally welcome you all to join our efforts or simply learn more about local government. We meet on the fourth Monday of every month, come, and meet a wonderful group of patriots and learn more about what you can do to preserve Mason County for future generations.
The Republican Party is the party of freedom. We believe in keeping government small, fiscal responsibility, the rule of law and order, and a government who is accountable to its people.
Our fundamental purpose is to elect Republicans to office. We do this through engaging citizens, creating awareness of the issues our district faces and by raising money to support courageous candidates who are willing to serve the people of Mason County. We must continue to restore voter confidence, get the vote out, be a positive presence in our community and grow our organization. Grassroots activism is alive and well in Mason County, and we encourage you to join our efforts.
