Dear Voters of Beaver County:

As Chairman of the Republican Committee of Beaver County (RCBC), I have been asked when and if the RCBC will be endorsing candidates for the 2015 Courthouse race.

The Republican Committee of Beaver County has a long standing policy against endorsing any candidates in a contested local primary. RCBC doesn’t endorse because we believe it undermines the democratic process and would rather see a vigorous primary that allows the best candidate to rise to the top. RCBC as a committee decides to vote against endorsements at the PA Republican State Committee meetings. We believe that our job is to present the public with choices. The public should get to know the candidates, make an informed decision on casting their ballot choice, and make a conscious decision on each and every office on the ballot.

RCBC does not charge assessment fees to candidates for them to receive our endorsement. Our poll workers volunteer their time and efforts based on their belief in a particular candidate.

We respect the voters and trust the voters, believing the voter is smart enough to do the research to pick the best candidates.

The Republican Committee of Beaver County is holding an open Town Hall in early May featuring the 2015 Court House Republican candidates. Come join us for a lively Town Hall which will include a question and answer period. Please watch for our announcement.

If you would like more information on our candidates or The Republican Committee of Beaver County please contact us at 724-728-2505 or email us at chair.gopbeaverco@gmail.com

I agree with their party, but how can they still show support for Dennis Nichols who didn’t even buy a table let alone a TICKET for the republicans biggest fundraiser? Even if he would have attended, he was attending as a guess. If I was the chair I would endorse just to get that ass out of office who wants nothing to do to help the PARTY. Vote Egley and Camp….. to get him OUT!

@MikeyT: You are more right than you know. Nichols offered the Republican Committee a $20,000 donation if they would work to prevent any other Republican Commissioner candidates from appearing on the primary ballot in 2015. He believes that “the only seat the Republican Party can ever win is mine”. That is why he didn’t buy a ticket to the Republican Committee Fundraiser. Nichols even had Egley switch her party registration to Democrat in December telling her that she had a better chance to win running as a Democrat (thankfully she switched back a month later when she learned the truth). Nichols has bluffed, he has exposed his proverbial hand of cards, and he has a losing hand. I respect Ms Carpenter’s viewpoints on having an open primary, but in this case one candidate has (repeatedly) slapped you in the face. The party should NOT be afraid to openly unite behind Egley and Camp in the primary.

That’s unbelievable, I hope he loses just because of that offer. The problem with Nichols is, that he is scared to take the lead. He wants to be the VP not the PRESIDENT. The republicans could take the courthouse over and he can become the majority leader, but he does not want to take the lead and he ok with being the minority. I can see why JP reported months ago about Republican leaders trying to talk Camp out of running, they wanted the 20k. Kudos to Camp for staying strong and doing what he set his mind to do, also to Egley for not doing want the snake Nichols wanted her to do. Karma is bitch Commissioner Nichols.

Right on. I agree with not endorsing candidates during a primary election. It’s not right and I think should be prohibited by law. This is exactly how the democratic party remains the way it does. New blood and new candidates with new vision cannot get a foothold in elections. This is why the courthouse is the way it is.
