Did the Yucca Valley Republican Women’s Club Lose Their Way?

The Yucca Valley Republican Women’s Federated Club, led by second-term President L. Hillary Slotta recently changed their name to the Morongo Basin Republicans and has aligned with a local Political Action Committee formed by Chad Mayes, called The Lincoln Club of the Morongo Basin. Here is a link to the PAC expenditures, including three checks payable to Yucca Valley Republican Women.>link

Adding to this scenario, The Republican Women Club donated three times to this PAC in the amount of $100 on 02/14/2013, $323.41 on 10/25/2013 and $100.00 on 1/09/2014. This women’s club has been exclusively supporting local candidate, Chad Mayes (R) which is in violation of their by-laws which requires Republican Women to support ALL Republican candidates.

Slotta has also been using her position in the club to support her own personal candidacy via the newsletter, displaying her campaign literature at tables, announcements seeking member support and asking for volunteers at meetings to help launch her campaign with an ice cream social.

There are the increased “Presidential Expenses” to pay for lunches, breakfasts, dinners, gas, mileage and hotel accommodations at conferences while reducing the scholarships from $1,500-$2,000 in the past, to a mere $300 budgeted for this year. The irony of all this? Slotta is running for a position on a local School Board using a campaign slogan, “Students First!”

After their back door attempt by the Republican Women Board members to support the defeated Measure U, a 1% 30 year General Fund tax, that could not be designated, I believe this club has lost their way and should get back to basics.
