What is the HCREC?
The Highlands County Republican Executive Committee is the governing body of the Republican Party of Highlands County.
Members (precinct committeemen and committeewomen) of the Republican Executive Committee represent the registered Republicans who live in their precincts. Highlands County has 25 voting precincts. The number of precinct committeemen and committeewomen in each precinct depends on the number of registered voters in the precinct.
The Highlands County Republican committeemen and committeewomen elect the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary, and Treasurer of the Party. They also approve the Party’s constitution, rules, policies and procedures, and budget.
The HCREC plays an important role in the grassroots effort of the Party and the overall team effort to get Republicans elected in Highlands County.

I Believe… The proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to be done but cannot be done, or cannot be done as well, by individuals, and that the most effective government is government closest to the people.
I Believe… Good government is based upon the individual and that each person’s ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized.
I Believe… The free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative and incentive have given this nation an economic system second to none.
I Believe… Sound money management should be our goal.
I Believe… In equal right, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin.
I Believe… We must retain those principles of the past worth retaining, yet always be receptive to new ideas with an outlook broad enough to accommodate thoughtful change and varying points of view.
I Believe… That Americans value and should preserve their feeling of national strength and pride, and at the same time share with people everywhere a desire for peace and freedom and the extension of human rights throughout the world.
I Believe… The Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
