Log Cabin Coachella Valley Pool Party

The Local Log Cabin Republicans of the Coachella Valley proudly presents to you: DESERT OASIS SUMMER POOL BASH 2!
Featuring Special Guest - Rick Loughery, Young Republicans, National Chairman

CA GOP Convention

We had an outstanding time at the CA Republican Convention last month! Thanks to everyone who helped make both events a success!


Action Alert! Reform CA needs YOUR HELP!

From our friends at Reform CA - They will be donating $2 for local Log Cabin chapters for EVERY SIGNATURE gathered.


If interested, please contact Log Cabin OC at [email protected]. We will be distributing petitions at the CAGOP conference, so be sure to attend one of the two events!


These signatures HAVE TO BE RETURNED TO REFORM CA by the last day of April.


SIGN THE TAXPAYER PROTECTION AND GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY ACT:  An important initiative is circulating for signatures right now that will protect California taxpayers from the relentless increases in taxes as well as the introduction of new fees (taxes in disguise!) without first being presented to the taxpayers for a vote.

This initiative gives voters the constitutional right to vote on all new or higher state and local tax increases. 

  • Stops bureaucrats from increasing fees and our cost of living without a vote of the Legislature or local government.
  • Stops politicians from promising to spend our hard-earned tax dollars like the gas tax on popular things like roads and then quietly shifting those tax dollars to other priorities.
  • Stops politicians from creating “hidden taxes” by calling tax increases a fee to prevent you from voting for approval.
  • Requires all tax proposals clearly explain to voters the use, rate, and duration of any new or higher tax so we can hold the government accountable for how it spends our tax dollars.
  • The state has over a $45 billion tax surplus and is raising taxes and fees again this year. Cities are too.


"Save Max" Fundraiser

On behalf of Log Cabin Republicans of Orange County, thank you so much for attending and donating to the "Keeping a Promise" benefit last night for our friend in Afghanistan!

Legend Group forwarded us the following link which can be used to donate directly to him outside of Legend Group, that will go for his educational pursuits.

A big THANK YOU to Roman Nunes, who helped collect donations at the door. All donations and checks received at the door will be forwarded in a sealed envelope to Legend Group. Also, if there are any issues with checks that were written to Legend Group at the door, they will reach out to you directly.

Nelson & Huang for OC Superior Court Event

There are SO MANY OC Superior Court Judge positions open this year, and we're so delighted to have had a packed house for our forum with Shawn Nelson and Peggy Huang! And we even had another candidate join us (Eric Scarbrough who is DTS but not opposing a Republican) running for another open seat! Thank you all, and thank you to our venue (Royal Hen) for hosting us. Please let us know what you think about the venue!

March Candidate Mixer

Thank you to those who came out to our March happy hour! We had several new faces, including a candidate for US Senate. Looking forward to our next General Meeting on March 24th with Shawn Nelson and Peggy Huang!

Call for volunteers - Log Cabin California's Party @ CAGOP conference

Calling all party people who love to plan and help decorate! Again, LCR CA will be co-hosting a hospitality suite/party at CAGOP and we could use your help to plan and/or set up at the party! The event is Saturday April 23rd in the evening in Anaheim. Please contact John Merrill @ [email protected] if you'd like to pitch in!

* ACTION ALERT! * Democrats and Special Interest Groups are erasing "Freedom for All Act"!

Please contact your US Congressmember and US Senators NOW to let them know you support the "Fairness for All Act"! Special interests and out-of-control progressives in Washington, DC are trying to bury this important piece of legislation, in favor of the radical "Equality for All Act".
