The Jefferson County Republican Party’s mission is to help elect and maintain qualified Republican leadership at all levels–federal, state, and local office–grow the party and support the agenda and policies as defined by Republican leadership.

The Republican Party is the party that believes that government should be limited—it should defend our homeland, both foreign and domestic enemies, enforce the laws, keep people safe, give children a good, fundamental education including a solid knowledge of our Founding and the Constitution, educate children, and provide a safety net, but then get out of the way.

We believe government should do no more than absolutely necessary. The difference between our Party and the other party comes down to one principle: our Party believes that a person’s individual rights—right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—come from God and the right to govern is loaned to the government by the people. The other Party believes a person’s rights, their dignity and their worth, come from the government.

We seek to bring these values and timeless principles to Louisville and Jefferson County, and to take our city in a new direction.  The Jefferson County Republican Party will return local government to its proper role of securing our persons and property, protect our freedom, and allow us the liberty to make our own economic and religious decisions.

      • I believe the strength of our nation lies with the individual and that each person’s dignity, freedom, ability and responsibility must be honored.
      • I believe in equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, gender, 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 Americans must retain the principles that have made us strong while developing new and innovative ideas to meet the challenges of changing times.
      • I believe Americans value and should preserve our national strength and pride while working to extend peace, freedom and human rights throughout the world.
      • Finally, I believe the Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
