The Precinct Committee Officer is the representative of the Republican Party at the grassroots level.
At a minimum, a PCO accepts certain responsibilities, including:
A strong and effective party looks to its PCOs to perform at least the above tasks. These duties may take a minimum of only ten hours per year, but accomplishing additional tasks will make all our efforts even more effective.
This link to the WSRP PCO Manual will describe the “nuts and bolts” of how to create a successful precinct organization.
There are things you can do every month of the year, and each task takes very little time. A few hours a month is all it takes to create a strong precinct. These few hours will allow you to build a rapport with your neighbors such that they will come to you for advice on political issues and candidates, whether they are preparing to vote or writing to their representatives in government or to the local newspaper.
There are a number of things a good PCO will do:
Are you unable to doorbell but you don't mind making phone calls? If so, maybe you can help another precinct make calls and we'll have other precincts help with doorbelling in your precinct. We just want to make sure every precinct in Mason County if covered to be successful!
