Tristan Manos

(LD24)

Tristan Manos, a LD24 PC and two-term MCRC Member-at-Large has announced his candidacy for Chairman of the Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) at the Sat., Jan 9 MCRC Statutory meeting. His proposed 5-Point platform consists of:
1) STAND UP FOR Election Integrity in the 2020 Election, STAND UP for President Trump #MAGA #KAG, and STAND UP for calling on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to immediately terminate all contracts with Dominion Voting Systems and Dominion personnel (after a forensic audit).
2) STAND UP to the Governor, Board of Supervisors, Mayors of Cities throughout Maricopa County, and unelected bureaucrats imposing unconstitutional restrictions upon We The People of Maricopa County, our essential Lives, Liberties, Properties, and Pursuits of Happiness. It’s long past time for We The People to re-establish the moral, rightful, and commonsense constitutional balance of power between We The People and our own government, of, by, and for We The People.
3) Hold monthly one-hour MCRC Executive Guidance Committee (EGC) meetings for official MCRC business, immediately followed by one-hour PC Town Hall meetings, trainings, and workshops.
4) Identify, establish, and promote MCRC institutional resources for the new administration and future administrations. How many times have we seen the MCRC try to reinvent itself or reinvent something that should already be long established? How many times have we seen PCs asking the same questions over and over again, only to be given the same excuses, or ignored over and over again?
5) Produce a comprehensive MCRC PC Handbook, including references to the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, Republican Party Platform & newly established MCRC Platform, also including proven strategies and top tips on how to be the best PC you can be, making the Republican Party and Republican Get Out The Vote (GOTV) the best it can be.
