Boone County Republican Central Committee
The Boone County Republican Central Committee is made up of elected members authorized by Missouri Statute to do the business of the Republican Party in Boone County. The county is organized starting with wards inside cities and then out into the county townships. Across the county, these are organized into larger Legislative, Senate, Judicial and Congressional districts.
The Committee meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month to conduct the business of the Republican Party. It meets at Grand Cru Restaurant, 2600 S. Providence in Columbia at 7:10 p.m.
The Central Committee strives to bring together people who believe in personal responsibility, an efficient, limited government at all levels, and equal opportunity to succeed. Even if disagreements arise on policies, all Boone County Republicans work together to elect officeholders with whom we agree with most of the time, because our similarities are greater than our differences.
Some of the responsibilities of the Committee include:
- Raising money for GOP candidates;
- Recruiting volunteers for voter ID efforts;
- Acts as an extension of the state Republican Party, and
- Get out the vote on Election Days
