The evening of January 11th, 2019 was another memorable event. Several representatives of Lane County Republicans attended the Vanguards of Victory Awards Ceremony. This ceremony and dinner, hosted by the Oregon Republican Party, recognized the 2019 accomplishments of Timber Unity, the Slavic Vote and Candace Owens who was also the featured speaker.
Timber Unity: Vanguards of Victory Award for Industry
Timber Unity a volunteer organization, received the Vanguards of Victory Award for Industry. Now with thousands of followers, Timber Unity fights for protection of the men and women who work in our NW forests, ranches, farms, trucking, fisheries, mines, rural industry and local business. These workers along with every resident of Oregon have been plummeted by Oregon’s Democratic Legislature and Governor who continually go against the will of the voter.
Timber Unity has organized a Feb. 6, convoy of logging trucks and farm equipment to Salem and a rally on the Capitol steps. Thousands of individuals are expected to attend and show their support against the continue decimation of our rural communities, our forest and agriculture industries. The Democrat legislature is once again attempting to pass a Cap and Trade bill. This bill is another tax scheme to take more dollars out of the pocket of every resident of Oregon.
Slavic Vote: Vanguards of Victory Award for Grass Roots
Slavic Vote was this years recipient of the Vanguards of Victory Award for Grass Roots. Slavic Vote has given a voice to the Slavic community across Northwest. Religious freedom, family values, and medical freedom are among the most important issues to the Slavic community. The community has long been overlooked and misrepresented by elected legislators. Slavic Vote hosts voting registration drives, provides educational support during local, state, and national elections, and encourages the community to run for local, state, and national offices.
Slavic Vote is governed by a Board of Directors with multitude of background experiences pertinent to their cause, including policy & legal professionals, business owners, youth Pastors, among others. Slavic Vote board meets six times a year to plan outreach events and discuss partnership opportunities within the community.
