THE ALBANY CITY REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE
The Albany City Republican Committee consists of elected or appointed representatives of the 151
Election Districts in the City of Albany. Election Districts are the building blocks of the City and County Republican Organizations.
Committee Members play a key role in the electoral process. Ideally, they know the geography and
people of their districts. They inform party leaders of the issues, problems and needs of their districts.
They have a vote in choosing party committee leaders, and in selecting candidates for public offices.
They help those candidates get on the ballot and help them with their campaigns. Some committee
members also serve as election inspectors at primary and general elections.
Election Inspectors are compensated as follows: $25 for training. $100 for Primary Day
$200 for Election Day
GOALS OF THE ALBANY CITY REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE
1. To maintain and improve the residential integrity and quality of life in city neighborhoods
2. To shape governmental policies and actions to achieve Goal No. 1
3. To support candidates for public office, and party leadership positions, who share and support
4. To repeal the County Committee Rules Change of June 2004 , which took away the right of
self-determination (to right to elect their own city committee officers) in the Cities of Albany
Cohoes and Watervliet, while allowing the Towns to do so. This rules change is undemocratic
unconstitutional, and Un-American.
We have young Americans dying so that people of Iraq and Afghanistan can have democracy
and the right of self-determination. The right of self determination is an essential element of
our American form of government.
The Albany County Republican Committee must repeal the June 2004 rules change without
If it is not, motions for repeal and a slow roll call vote, will be made at the organizational
meetings of the Albany City and County Republican Committees following the September
12, 2006 Republican Primaries.
