The Grand Traverse County Republican Party Website offers a local look at our great party. We are dedicated to the core Republican principles of an efficient, responsible ethical government. We hope that you join us in supporting our local, regional, state and federal candidates and elected officials and invite you to get involved with our local Republican Party.
Through the years, Republicans led the fight for individuals' rights in opposition to a large bloated government. Republicans abolished salvery, fought for free speech and defended women's suffrage. The Party is still fighting for limited government, steamlined bureaucracy and individual states' rights.
Republicans have a long history with basic principles: Individuals, not government, can make the best decisions; all people are entitled to equal rights; and decisions are best made close to home.
