Republicans of Finney County, both conservative and moderate, we have an important assignment to attend to this election year on Nov. 2. Never has your engagement been so critical as the state and nation face a financial and moral crossroad.

The Republican Central Committee of Finney County has been working together to impact tomorrow. We have been focused on the work of electing men and women who understand the issues and are willing, eager and able to make real change.

Attempts have been made to divide our party and create fighting factions, but as Abraham Lincoln has said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand." we need to join together to elect Republicans. Leadership needs to be an action, not as just a position. We cannot afford to wait for someone else to do our work. Remember to exercise your voting rights. We as Republicans must stand united. Winning this election year is essential, for our families, our city, state and ultimately our nation. "For evil to flourish, it only requires good men to do nothing," said Simon Wiesenthal when he opposed the tyranny of Nazi Germany.

Your voice and vote are necessary to usher in a time of restoration, practical wisdom, and to ensure a future for our nation.

The officers of the Republican Central Committee along with the 54 precinct committeemen and committeewomen encourage you to vote Republican on Nov. 2. We appreciate your service to our county and the men and women who represent our voice.

TROY R. UNRUH,

Garden City
