About SacCountyGOP Meetings

The Sacramento County Republican Central Committee meetings are open to Committee Members, Alternates, and Associates with 25 open seats for invited guests. The agenda is set in advance by the SCRP Executive Committee. Since participation in the Committee meeting is reserved for Committee members only, guests are encouraged to discuss their ideas in advance with a committee member (view the list of members), or to send their comments to info@saccountygop.com.
No recording devices are allowed during the meeting, including phones. Photos/videos will be taken by representatives of the SacCountyGOP only. Thank you!

The Sacramento County Republican Central Committee meets on the third Wednesday of the month. Meetings begin at 6:30pm. We do not hold meetings in July or December, unless there is a special need.

Registered Republicans in Sacramento County who signed up in advance may attend to observe the meeting. 

The May agenda may include some early endorsements of local candidates who are planning to run in November. Most endorsements will take place in June or August. The Committee will also fill two vacancies, and they will consider a Bylaw Amendment supported by the Executive Committee clarifying Member obligations relating to endorsements.

What Happened at the April Meeting?

Chair Mahan announced that the Fix 47 campaign has submitted over 900,000 signatures, making it very likely the measure will appear on the November 2024 ballot. This needed reform for Prop. 47 addresses smash and grab thefts, repeat offenders, and adds Fentanyl to the list of hard drugs so armed drug dealers will be charged with a Felony. It also provides addiction and mental health services for treatment-mandated felony charges.

Two vacancies were announced in Districts 2 and 5 as the incumbents are now Ex-Officio’s. The Executive Committee will recommend candidates to fill the seats at the May meeting.

Chair Mahan thanked Associate Tim Buckley for his generous campaign to sell conservative books with proceeds donated to SacCountyGOP.

Ben Granholm provided a refresher course on Parliamentary Procedure and Roberts Rules of Order. All Committee Members are expected to follow these protocols to ensure respectful and efficient meetings.

Sadie Foster announced an upcoming Tech Training provided by the Leadership Institute. It will take place the day before the CAGOP Convention in Burlingame at the same hotel. 

Barbara Sloan led a discussion on community events and received suggestions from Committee members to expand SacCountyGOP’s reach in the County. She reminded the Committee that volunteers are needed for May events, including the Sacramento County Fair. and the AutoRama at CalExpo.

Chair Mahan reported that over $10,000 needs to be raised to cover costs of the Republican Booth at the California State Fair. SacCountyGOP has always hosted the State Fair booth at Cal Expo, in addition to their own County Fair. Republican County Committees and Organizations throughout the State are encouraged to support the Republican booth and to provide volunteers.

Voter Contact Coordinator Mike Story reported on the timeline for starting phone banks and walks. It is not yet confirmed if the CAGOP will cover the costs of phone banks for candidates, or counties. Most voter contact programs will begin in September. Candidates were encouraged to contact Mike now to discuss their plans and needs.

Nina Caron reported that there will be about 80 Vote Centers to observe in the November Election, and now is the time to apply if you want to work for the Elections Department, counting or receiving ballots. Learn more and apply at this link.
