SPARC - Providing local support for the GOP in San Mateo, Santa Clara, and neighboring counties since 2000


Republican Party Elephant
SPARC (the South Peninsula Area Republican Coalition) is a Bay Area grass-roots political organization founded in 2000 and chartered by the California Congress of Republicans (CCR).  Our membership comprises many dedicated individuals that come together to learn, have fun, and work to bring positive change to our local, state, and federal politics.


SPARC's mission is to energize the Republican base in support of the overall goals and ideals of the Republican Party:

  • Low taxes
  • Limited government
  • Individual liberty and responsibility
  • Strong national defense
  • Leadership in world freedom


SPARC members host several local events and educational forums throughout the year and actively participate in grass-roots campaigning.  The organization focusses primarily on matters of political interest in Santa Clara county and San Mateo county but keeps the membership well informed on state and national issues as well.  

We invite you to attend one of our upcoming events, and we encourage you to become a member.
