Regional Chairs and State Coordinators

To achieve our vision and to Take Back Our Republic, we take many approaches. That's why we need coordinators on the ground.


Take Back Our Republic is a complex organization with a diverse issue profile. While we are a “reform” organization, we tackle ethics, lobbying, campaign finance, and government operations.
Our state and coordinators are trained on how to respond to queries and confrontations, and what to do when confronted with local and regional challenges.


We want our coordinators to be equipped to share the message of Take Back Our Republic by providing three points on three subjects: What Take Back Does, What Take Back has Accomplished, and What Take Back is Working on Right Now.

         What Take Back Does:

  1.     Works to stop foreign involvement in our elections.
  2.     Engages in campaign finance, lobbying, and ethics reform to reduce the impact of outside influence on our elected officials.
  3.     Empowers ordinary citizens to increase the impact of voters on their elected officials.

What Take Back has Accomplished:

  1.     Introduced legislation to close the credit card loophole that opens the door for foreign contributions.
  2.     Authored hundreds of articles and educational papers to inform the public on the crisis and appeared in over 400 news stories as a conservative source advocating for reform.
  3.     Supported various referenda around the country to encourage voters to exercise their ability to bring reform to their government.

What Take Back is Working on Right Now:

  1.     Lobbying Congress and various steps for reform measures.
  2.     Strategizing for key ballot initiatives.
  3.     Building a groundswell of support in key battleground and primary states ahead of the key 2020 election.

Why should you care about secret political donations? Plain and simple, you are losing your hard-earned money. $1,300 a year from state pay-for-play, according to a university study, and many times that in local and federal pay-for-play. TBOR is fixing this problem, but we need your help on the ground. Make an impact near you! 


Help us stop the buying and selling of politicians. When you donate to Take Back Our Republic, your dollars will be spent transparently, something we want to be able to say about our elected officials in the coming years!
