"Welcome to The Essex County New York Republican website. We stand proud as the largest political party in the county and believe in the statements listed below. We would welcome your comments, your participation and of course you joining us, to strengthen our party.

Shaun Gillilland, Chairman


I am a Republican because...

I BELIEVE the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person's dignity, freedom and ability and responsibility must be honored.

I BELIEVE in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all regardless of race, creed, sex, age or disability.

I BELIEVE free enterprise and encouraging individual initiative have brought this nation opportunity, economic growth and prosperity.

I BELIEVE government must practice fiscal responsibility and allow individuals to keep more of the money they earn.

I BELIEVE the proper role of government is to provide for the people only those critical functions that cannot be performed by individuals or private organizations and that the best government is that which governs least.

I BELIEVE the most effective, responsible and responsive government is government closest to the people.

I BELIEVE that Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet challenges of changing times.

I BELIEVE in America's values and that we should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights around and throughout the world.

FINALLY, I BELIEVE that the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
