The Massachusetts Republican Party shall be a statewide party, purposeful and strong in all counties, cities, towns and neighborhoods of the Commonwealth, and shall maintain the Republican Party as an instrument for the political realization of the concept of individual liberty on which our constitutional government is founded.
As stated in the Party’s by-laws, the Massachusetts Republican Party stands for the principle that we are the Party open to all. We are also the Party of opportunity for all: opportunity for every one of every race, religion, color, national origin, age and sex. We believe in full participation with equal opportunity for men and women, for minorities and heritage groups, and for all Americans regardless of age or social or economic status.
The Republican Party is the Party of the open door. Ours is the Party of equality of opportunity for all and favoritism for none. We encourage the broadest possible participation of all voters in Republican Party activities at all levels and seek to assure that the Republican Party is open, accessible to all, and answerable ultimately to the people in the true American tradition.
The Massachusetts Republican Party consists of all enrolled Republican voters in the Commonwealth and is governed by the Massachusetts Republican State Committee. The State Committee establishes the policies of the Party, provides a central headquarters, gives leadership to the city, ward and town committees in electing Republican candidates to office, raises money for the purposes of the Party, and seeks new members for the Republican Party. Consistent with the preamble to the Rules of the National Republican Party, it is the intent and purpose of the State Committee to foster the tenets of the Republican Party as stated in the Platform of the National Republican Party.
