The Lincoln Club of San Luis Obispo County functions to encourage, educate, recruit and support Republican candidates in both partisan and nonpartisan office. We support the party platforms of both the Republican National Committee and the Republican Party and will seek to foster unity within our Party.
We value the Republican principles of:
1. Smaller more effective government
2. Lower taxes
3. More personal freedom

The Lincoln Club of San Luis Obispo County will educate, recruit and support Republican candidates for public offices throughout and around San Luis Obispo County. We will raise money for the promotion of Republican candidates and will encourage and assist them in their campaigns.
Goal #2: To promote potential Republican candidates for election through forums and other venues. Committees are in place to make forums more effective in meeting their goals and objectives and to retain support for Republican candidates.
