Paid for by the Elko County Republican Party

With  great regret, we report the passing of one of our Central Committee members, Vern Shipton.

Vern was an active and supportive member and a true patriotic American. He stepped up several years ago to fill the void left by the death of his wife Mary Lou, and stayed with us through all these troubled times. He even served on our Executive Committee for a few years.

Vern was one of a kind, always funny and upbeat but also serious about important matters.

Rest in Peace, Vern. We will miss you, your wisdom and your neon presence.

Vern's life will be celebrated sometime next Spring.



We all hope for a better year than 2020. Toward that goal, the Elko County Commission met on, Wednesday, January and adopted a resolution "In Support of the Local Economy and Businesses Impacted by COVID-19 Restrictions....", designated Resolution 2021-01. The Elko County Republican Party Executive Committee unanimously supports this resolution.

We urge you to read the resolution.You can read the text of the draft resolution on the county website by clicking here.

You can watch a video of the Commission to listen to the discussion here.

We hope that many of you will express your support of the County Commission taking a strong stand in this matter.

Our office is now closed until 2022 election time when we need to take back the Governor's office.
