Our Platform values are organized into four areas which provide a comprehensive approach towards meeting our mission.  These areas include Leadership, Fiscal Responsibility, Education and Environment.  It is our belief that these values will be upheld with pride and courage by our members and our endorsed candidates.  It is our hope that they will guide us and protect the community with a consistent conservative perspective during times of earned prosperity and economic hardship.
