Los Angeles County's rich treasure, Long Beach.  Home to 450,000 diverse people within 50 square miles,

Welcome to Long Beach Republicans
We are a group of Republicans who believe that together we can truly make a difference by helping
elect local, state and national leaders who will reflect our core values, that of:  Faith, Freedom and
Personal Responsibility.  It is our hope that you will find this website valuable and that you will join us in
the effort to promote and elect Republican leaders to City Hall, Sacramento and Washington D.C.

A Republican Platform for Long Beach
Have you ever wondered what Republicans believe in?

Abraham Lincoln, our country's first Republican President, provided the foundation for our beliefs:
  • Equal justice, equal rights and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin
  • Good government is based on the individual and each person's ability, dignity, freedom and responsibility must be honored and recognized.

We are committed to improving the quality of life in Long Beach by promoting leadership that will work. We want reasonable taxes, minimal government regulation and local control over city programs and services. The City must provide efficient and economical services. Our children deserve a top quality public education system. We must improve economic opportunity, promote personal and social responsibility and ensure the health and safety of all residents and visitors to our City.

We promote the following:

  • Safety of all Citizens - the effective and efficient delivery of public safety services shall be the first priority of the City.
  • Quality Education - challenge our Long Beach schools to be the nation's best and develop students that can compete successfully in a changing world.
  • Economic Opportunity - support a business friendly environment to improve the local economy and create good jobs.
  • Environmental Responsibility - encourage the development of green belts, open space, wild-life habitat, and park and recreation areas for the beautification and environmental improvement of the area and the enjoyment of the people.
  • Honest Effective Government - demand that responsive accountable leadership conduct business openly, encourage public participation, and serve the community with integrity.
  • Personal Responsibility - encourage honesty, respect, courage, integrity, and compassion.

We are a group dedicated to help make the conservative vote relevant again in Long Beach and California.  We live in a political climate where predominately one voice is heard which means that only one point of view is expressed in our public policy.  In a democracy, all citizens deserve to have their point of view heard.  In fairness, we strive to have a proportionate influence in the government that determines how we live our lives and run our businesses. 

Be active, be part of our "change".  Please contact us at
info@longbeachrepublicans.org to join us.  With your help, we can make our voices heard in the government that determines YOUR future.
