Who We Are~
As a freedom and liberty-guided organization in Rock County, we educate, support and organize citizens in order to bring increased transparency and accountability to local government. People join Rock County First (RCF) because they are looking for a group of citizens who realize local government has the greatest impact on their day-to-day liberty and personal freedoms. They know RCF is focused on action and results intended to help preserve their liberties and freedoms by holding local government more accountable. We accomplish this though specific volunteer-led workgroups – which are bound by a common desire to serve their fellow citizens and the community. Our focus is on empowering citizens by keeping them educated and knowledgeable about their local government; thereby ensuring equal representation.
MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK.
Putting Rock County first
To bring the vision to fruition, Rock County First established three workgroups for supporters to connect and get involved. As an organization, we must continue to grow the base. In order for achievement to occur, many hands are needed. The Recruitment/Retention workgroup focuses on drawing in more supporters, and connecting them with the either the Watchdog or Candidate groups. The second workgroup, Watchdog, focuses on research and action. In order to preserve liberty, it’s imperative to understand the institutions who seek to control liberty. Following agendas and attending board meetings are crucial in maintaining an informed citizenry. Action can only be taken when one has knowledge of the issue. The Watchdog group volunteers research municipalities within our county, and monitors the boards and councils too. The final group is the Candidate and Campaign workgroup. This group recruits, trains, and provides support to local candidates. The Candidate/Campaign workgroup uses the knowledge gained from the Watchdog workgroup to target local seats in the next election. All three workgroups work together
The Recruit and Retain workgroup of Rock County First uses a variety of marketing methods and tools to draw in new supporters of RCF. By hosting and attending events, R&R hopes to maximize the impact RCF has on Rock County.
The Candidate & Campaign workgroup recruits, trains, and provides support to local candidates. With 29 county board seats, and dozens of municipal and school board seats, the C&C workgroup will work to provide strength and momentum in preserving freedom through local control.
The Watchdog workgroup researches, and educates citizens on issues and policy. The workgroup uses this information to drive action, and enact change.
Our focus is on empowering citizens by keeping them educated and knowledgeable about their local government; thereby ensuring equal representation.
