Ascension is one of the fastest growing parishes in Louisiana, and it ranks 9th among U. S. counties nation wide. Its number of registered and elected Republicans is growing as well. Party membership, which was less than 9,000 in the year 2000, today stands at more than 21,525 (or 31.2%), and there are now twenty-one elected Republican officials representing constituents within the parish.
The Ascension Republican Women welcome all interested citizens to join us at our monthly Ascension GOP Roundtable meetings. It is our goal to keep the electorate informed of current events and issues of interest to citizens of Ascension, Louisiana and the United States.
The ARW organization supports Conservative Republican candidates running for local, state and national offices. ARW is also very active in promoting Community Service projects such as the Dictionary Project (We provide dictionaries for every 3rd grader in 14 Ascension Parish schools.), the Brick Project (memorializing fallen Ascension soldiers at the Veteran’s Memorial Park in Gonzales, LA) and the St. Theresa Food Bank. For the past two years, ARW has sponsored a Veterans Day Poster contest in the local high schools.
Our meetings are open to women and men alike who are interested in the community in which they live. Come join us!
