President Donald Trump’s First Year Accomplishments

With President Trump signing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, he has signed 81 legislative accomplishments in his first year to provide significant tax cuts, decrease regulations, boost the U.S. economy, protect our homeland, and restore respect to the United States.

Jobs and the economy

  • Made progress to build the border wall with Mexico.

From the Party Chairman

January 2018

Happy New Year from the executive committee and myself to our members and supporters.

Special Election for 10th Senate District: Adam Jarchow won the special primary election on December 19, 2017 by 56% to 44%.  Adam has been endorsed by a number of current and former Republican State Representatives from the 10th Senate District.

Included are: sitting Representatives Rob Stafsholt (R-New Richmond), Shannon Zimmerman (R- River Falls) and former Representatives Erik Severson (R-Osceola), Dean Knudson (R-Hudson), John Murtha (R-Baldwin), Andy Lamb (R-Menomonie) and Mark Pettis (R-Hertel).

Adam is also endorsed by a number of local government leaders including former St. Croix County Board Chair Daryl Standafer and former Polk County Board Chair, Bob Blake.

Adam has delivered conservative results. In his first 2 terms in the Assembly, a dozen of Jarchow’s bills have been signed into law by Governor Scott Walker, that cover homeowners bill of rights,  the right to hunt act, ATV / UTV reform,  property rights protections, and modernizing business law.

In late November Governor Walker signed into law three bills authored by Adam. Adam recently received “The 2017 Property Taxpayers Champion Award”.

Adam Jarchow has been a watchdog for taxpayers, gun owners, property owners and small business owners. His legislation aims to “get government out of the way.”

Please join me in voting for Adam Jarchow on January 16, 2018 and help us get Republicans out to vote.

Alvan E. Bovay Award Presented to Pat Peterson

Pat Peterson of Dresser Wisconsin received the Alvan E. Bovay Award May 13, 2017 at the Republican Party of Wisconsin State Convention. Alvan E. Bovay was the founder of the Republican Party.

This award in his name honors a uniquely deserving individual in recognition of outstanding dedication and sacrifice over the years to the Republican Party. Pat Peterson has served the Republican Party of Polk County for over 40 years; most of those years on the Executive Team, the Membership Committee Chair, and the Communications Lead.

Pat and her husband Gordy Peterson head up the major fund raiser, organizing and overseeing the ice cream stand for the entire Polk County Fair each year. Pat has also contributed to the District Caucus and the State Convention over those 40 years.

Pat has been county chair for several Republican Candidates and does an excellent job of keeping people informed and energized by coordinating our annual membership mailing, and sending updates to members as needed throughout the year. Pat personally knows every one of our local elected officials and many of our state legislators, Congressman Sean Duffy, US Senator Ron Johnson, and Governor Scott Walker.

Pat has remained steadfast in her outstanding dedication. Pat is always approachable with a genuine warm heart. She is also involved with her community and church activities.
