Eileen Sobjack

EILEEN SOBJACK of Washington
Slated Position: NFRW 1st Vice President

 

Eileen Sobjack was elected 2nd vice president of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) at the 39th Biennial Convention in Philadelphia and took office in January 2018. She is director of NFRW Region 3, which includes Alaska, Hawaii, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. She also is the adviser to the NFRW Legislation and Research Committee and the Membership Committee.

Previously, Eileen served on the NFRW Executive Committee as 3rd vice president, secretary and member-at-large. She is an NFRW Capitol Regent. In 2011, she was one of five state presidents nominated for the NFRW Ronald Reagan Leadership Award. 

Instrumental in supporting the reorganized club of Whatcom County RW, she was elected club president in 2000. At the state level, she served in many key and varied roles before being elected to two terms as state president of the Washington Federation of Republican Women (WFRW). During her terms the WFRW membership increased.

Her journey into politics started when she was a young mother and a partner in her husband’s business. She saw firsthand the burden of excessive government control on families and small business. She became dedicated to assuring the liberty and freedoms we enjoy are available for the next generation. This led to her involvement initially as a volunteer lobbyist and activist for Republican issues.

She has served at many levels of county Republican leadership and as a member of the state party executive board. For her efforts, she was named 2006 Republican of the Year. She has been elected as a Precinct Committee Officer since 1988 and maintained the strong Republican percentage of votes in her precinct.

Eileen works each election season in local, state and national campaigns and has managed many
campaigns over the years, but you will also see her donning her tennis shoes to doorbell for candidates, making phone calls and providing meals to volunteers. Whatever is needed she is eager to assist. 

Over the years, Eileen volunteered her media experience to political and nonprofit groups, giving radio and TV interviews, writing articles, media releases or organizing press conferences to promote Republican issues.

Eileen was elected as a Whatcom County Charter Review Commissioner in 2015, receiving the most votes in her district. She is a lifetime member of the VFW Auxiliary, served as a trustee in her church and is a former public school teacher and private teaching consultant. She and her husband raised three active responsible citizens who, along with a son-in-law and daughter-in-law, are all Republicans.
