Why I'm Running for Office
My name is
David Miller and I am running for CRP Chair because it is well past the time for California Republicans to come together to discuss
and resolve the political issues of messaging, marketing and branding faced by our party.
I am asking each and every one of the
delegates to consider your fiduciary obligation to those you represent, your children and grandchildren, your brothers and sisters,
your neighbors and communities.
I have four children and three grandchildren, and I want to leave this great state and nation
better than when I had it passed to me by my parents and grandparents. I am a small business owner and have felt the pressures
of regulation and a bad economy. I have had to live under the overbearing rules and regulations passed by career politicians, and
I have had enough.
As a two time candidate for Congress, I know how hard it is to win against the political overhang of
many years of mismanaged, broken Republican messaging and branding.
The California Republican Party does not have financial problems,
it has a branding problem. I have been a business owner for most of my working life and understand that businesses do not have money
problems; they have products that people are not willing to spend their money on.
Let me be clear: there's nothing wrong
with our core Republican principles of limited government, constitutional rule of law, sound fiscal and monetary policy, personal
freedom and individual responsibility. We're just doing a very poor job of communicating those principles by translating them
into policies and legislation that resonate with voters.
A Republican form of government stands for the individual rights of
all people, but the message the people of California have been receiving is that we are a party of the wealthy and the well-connected.
This perception will persist if we continue to nominate rich and famous personalities to run for statewide office (e.g., Arnold Schwarzenegger,
The decline of the California GOP has occurred gradually over the last 40-plus years. As far as I have been able
to assess, the Republican Party of California at present does not have a strategy or operational plan to win over the hearts and minds
of the people of California.
I believe the California Republican Party needs a leader at this time who can and will set forth
a bold vision for the party. We must define clearly for the public and for the members of our party who Republicans are and what we
really stand for. Under my leadership, there will be a clear Strategic Vision and a Strategic Plan to carry it out successfully.
am ready to stand up and lead the way back for our party and to restore to our great state the vision of our founding fathers: We
hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among
Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
My question to all CRP delegates, then, is: What are the problems
we are facing as a state and a party? And how are we going to fix them? What are you personally going to the CRP convention to do?
And who are you doing this for? Are you ready to have a conversation about the future of the California Republican Party?
