Introduction to CCR
Mark Hershey, CCR Chair
California Congress of Republicans (CCR) is a statewide organization, permanently chartered by the California Republican Party with chapters throughout the State of California. Many of our members also serve on their respective county Republican Central Committees and local Republican clubs.
The CCR has many objectives, some of which are: (a) to become an influential political force for constructive action to preserve and protect responsible constitutional government, (b) to educate members and the public at large regarding pending legislation, candidates for public office, and the important issues of the day, (c) to encourage qualified Republicans to seek public office, (d) to help Republican candidates get elected, (e) to increase Republican registration and voter turnout, and (f) to promote unity, effectiveness and loyalty among all Republican groups.
To achieve some of CCR objectives, we partnered with South Peninsula Area Republican Coalition (SPARC) to provide a monthly “Speaker’s Series” presentation. An important and timely topic is selected and then an outstanding speaker is scheduled for the event. These topics include: “What’s Next for the Supreme Court”; U.S. and China relations; California ballot initiatives; post-election analysis; legislative attacks on Proposition 13; and the effects of Propositions 47 and 57 on the criminal justice system.
California Congress of Republicans provide an opportunity for like-minded individuals who share important core values to network and socialize with each other. This camaraderie can be furthered by participating in or joining a chartered organization in their community. Because CCR is statewide and a chartered organization, its members’ voices are heard at the California State Republican Party level.
We welcome new members with diverse ideas, who relish the power of teamwork. We will assist you in building your chapter! CCR helps identify, bring forward and endorse statewide candidates. Send your recommendations to our leadership.

Past President’s News
Some say that they’ve drawn the cowboy out of Christmas, taken most of the marrow out of the holiday’s hallowed bones. I’m not going to preach to you that it’s wrong or right; I suppose it’s something that just is.
One of the most vibrant chapters of CCR is the Republican Club of Ocean Hills. John Murphy, its Second Vice President of Membership, shares how his chapter has continued to blossom.
The debate at hand is whose First Amendment right is it? The content publisher’s or the content creator’s? Are the social media giants a monopoly or public utility? While the debate continues, if your posts on social media become censured, you can’t say that you weren’t put on notice.
Haidong unequivocally put his own life, and perhaps the rest of his family’s, on the line by criticizing the CCP. Shortly after his condemnation of his country’s totalitarian rulers, his social media account with millions of followers was summarily erased. If you must take a knee for diversity, consider taking a knee for diversity of ideas, such as “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,” and take a knee for Hao Haidong.
With the U.S. debt ratio at 109.37% to the GDP, it’s more than double the figure of 53.05% in 1960. Cash may have once been king, but in today’s sick world, it could very well end up the joker.
