arne_mortensenI’m Arne Mortensen your current Republican Precinct Committee Officer (PCO).  Briefly, I have many years of formal education in the sciences; this learning is reflected in a BS in physics form Harvey Mudd College and a PhD in Oceanography from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.  As key life experiences I have lived more than 12 years in third world/developing countries and two years in Europe.  As a graduate student in oceanography at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, I spent several months at sea doing research in distant parts of the world.  The result of these experiences is that I do not take for granted the wonder that is embodied in the US Constitution.  Many other nations had the same or better opportunities to make a great nation, yet they failed … not because of lack of resources but because of lack of respect for individual rights and lack of restraint of the forces of government. This past term I have been a primary contributor to the following: passage of a resolution to censure Republicans for any anti-gun bill or for raising taxes; forming the Republican Liberty Caucus; sponsoring key public events with Justice Sanders and Dave Roland as speakers on property rights and rights of self-defense; staffed the Republican booth at the 4th of July on the Lake and the County fair; and worked on Republican campaigns.  I continued to represent the people at the WRIA planning group. I am a Constitutionalist and a Jeffersonian, and, as before, I act according to principle not convenience.  I would like to have your vote in the upcoming election.  My email is

The PCO Liberty Alliance (PCOLA) was founded to support and help elect Republican PCO candidates who 1) generally support the published objectives of PCOLA; and 2) would like to leverage the collaborative structure of PCOLA for their election.
