We are located in the beautiful Matanuska Susitna Valley and have been in existence officially since 1947. Each year at the Alaska State Fair we have participated with a booth for information, fundraising and a place to have for folks in our state, federal and local political office to come and meet and talk to their constituents while the State Fair is going on. In 2011 we were given a beautiful ribbon for being one of the oldest booths out there...our first year was 1946 when the women were getting this club up and running!
Come to one of our meetings and become a part of this active, community minded group of awesome women!

3RD ANNUAL GARDEN GALA
We had a wonderful time this past July 26, 2014! Representatives Shelley Hughes & Bill Stoltz presented the Tokar family a legislative memorium for the years and years that Gloria Tokar had put into the Republican Party & the many candidates during those years. Gloria was an amazing woman with a heart for the Republican Party. She experienced so much & has been a mentor & educator & defender to so many.
We are missing her.
RNC Raises $9.3 Million in April
Posted May 20, 2014
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus today announced that the RNC raised $9.3 million in April. The RNC has raised $115.2 million for the 2014 cycle thus far and has $13.2 million cash on hand.
“April was another great month for the RNC, thanks to the continued generosity of grassroots supporters and major contributors alike,” said Chairman Priebus. “Their support has enabled us to launch Victory 365, our new year-round, community-based field operation—and to make ongoing investments in data, digital, and technology.
“Early investment has been essential to laying the groundwork for victory this November and for 2016 and beyond. We had staff on the ground earlier than ever before and have recruited over 14,000 precinct captains to engage with voters neighbor-by-neighborhood. In addition, we’ve been able to provide state parties and campaigns access to our OneData program and new tools like RNC Beacon, RNC Foresight, and our Dynamo API, making it possible for them to make informed decisions from real time feedback and predictive analytics.
“Republicans are taking our message to all voters and are focused on issues that matter—from job creation, ObamaCare, school choice, and spending to government overreach and the administration’s foreign policy failures. The momentum is on our side, and in contrast to the DNC, we’re on a stable financial footing. While Democrats fret about being ‘ready for Hillary,’ they should be even more worried about being ready for November.”
We have a RNC office here in Wasilla now. It is in the Regan Building on Palmer Wasilla Hwy. and is across the street from the bowling alley. The field director is Paul Cason. Be sure to stop by and welcome him and find out more information. He will be at our June general meeting. More information about that on our updates/meeting page.
2014 is going to be a crucially, critical year with elections! Our Club's goal is to BAG BEGICH! No matter how much he has tried to sound like a Republican as he has campaigned the past year, his voting record proves the hard core Democrat that he is.
We have some incredible men stepping up to run against him next year! Lt. Governor Mead Treadwell declared his candidacy this summer. This week former Alaska Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan announced that he’s running for U.S. Senate as well.
Joe Miller has made his announcement to join the race for Begich's job also.
Governor Sean Parnell will seek re-election with Bill Walker challenging him.
Mayor Dan Sullivan will be seeking the office of Lt. Govenor as well as State Senator Lesil McGuire.
It was such a pleasure to have these folks out at our booth at the State Fair this summer. Getting to meet the ones who respresent us, asking them pertinent questions, looking them in the eye....very important. Be alert during the months ahead where they will be so that YOU can do that. They have facebook pages you can 'like' in order to find out when & where they will be.
