About this event

Join Central Valley Impact Republicans and fellow conservatives as we celebrate the Christmas season! We will be holding our Christmas Dinner & Social on Monday, December 13th, in Manteca.

We are excited to be hosting as our special guest Sam Paredes, Executive Director of Gun Owners of California. Sam Paredes has been with Gun Owners of California for over 35 years, currently serving as Executive Director, a position he has held since 1998. He is also a member of the Board of Directors of Gun Owners of America and Treasurer of Gun Owners Foundation.

Paredes is a registered lobbyist, has testified in hundreds of legislative committee hearings and has advocated on behalf of the gun community before the California Fish and Game Commission, the Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Department of Justice.

Paredes has been interviewed by virtually every California news outlet as well as national and international media such as Fox News, ABC World News Tonight, the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, the Larry Elder Show, Al Jazeera and the BBC (Britain and Australia) as an expert on gun laws in the Golden State. He is a frequent speaker before conservative groups and has given workshops on “Confrontational Politics” in Missouri, Nevada and throughout California and has served as co-host of Sacramento’s “Just Guns” radio show on Money 105.5 FM.

In addition to his work with GOC, Paredes was appointed by California Governors George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson, serving in both administrations in the Trade and Commerce Agency.

Organizer Central Valley Impact Republicans

Organizer of Impact Republicans Christmas Dinner & Social

The Central Valley Impact Republicans (CVIR) is the local chapter of the California Impact Republicans, a statewide Republican volunteer organization, covering San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties. We are volunteers dedicated to electing conservative Republicans at every level of government, from school board and city council all the way up to Congress and President.

The California Impact Republicans are focused on 21st Century Grassroots Politics. We Recruit Candidates, Equip Leaders, Expand the GOP and Give Real Support to Electing Republicans to an office. Our establishing principle is to make a profound and positive impact on Republican politics in the State of California.

The CIR’s primary mission is to lead the way for the California GOP, away from the use of outdated methods that have failed many Republican candidates. We are an action-based group and our leaders are evaluated on what they do to expand the Conservative Republican brand in the State of California. We expect our leaders to expand CIR, help train the next generation of CIR leaders and recruit candidates for local office.
