What I See as the Future for the Lakewood Ranch Republican Club:
In March 2015, it was my distinct honor to be elected the new President of the Lakewood Ranch Republican Club (LWRRC). I am only the 2nd President since we were formed in 2008 when Dr. Craig Triguiero co-founded and became our first President. I can only hope I do as well as he had done in leading the Club during the past seven years.
Soon after my election, I was asked what I see as the future of our Club. Well, the future looks very bright indeed for the Lakewood Ranch Republican Club. We’ve increased our membership every year since I’ve been on the Board of Directors. The growth of the greater Lakewood Ranch area is well known and it has a strong conservative Republican base.
Additionally, some people may not know me that well, so I’d like to tell everyone who I am, which should give an indication as to where I’d like to see this Club to go. I am a Republican who truly believes in and practices the time proven Principles of the traditional Republican Party. I am an activist who believes “We the People” must be ever vigilant and alert to any encroachment upon our liberties. And when we see such encroachment, we must act.
My core values of Government are:
Fiscal Restraint and Responsibility;
Limited Constitutional Government;
Free Markets and a Free Enterprise economic system.
I Believe... The proper function of government is to protect our individual liberties.
I Believe... Good government is based upon the individual and that each person's ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized.
I Believe... The most effective and efficient government is government closest to the people.
I Believe... The free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative and incentive have given this nation an economic system second to none.
I Believe... Businesses create jobs and wealth, not the government. Jobs allow everyday people to care for their families. Wealth creates a vibrant and dynamic community with diversity in cultures.
I Believe... Sound money management should be our goal.
I Believe... In equal right, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin.
I Believe... That Americans value and should preserve their feeling of national strength and pride, and at the same time share with people everywhere a desire for freedom, then peace, and the extension of human rights throughout the world.
I Believe... The Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these beliefs into positive and successful principles of government.
The LWRRC will continue to be a strong fellowship of Republicans and we will continue to have great monthly Brunch and Luncheon meetings along with meetings for special purposes. They are always informative, and thought provoking. Additionally, these meetings provide feedback, positions, and ideas of rank & file Republicans on current issues for our Republican candidates and local elected officials. Our Club will continue to work towards achieving our goals of informing the people of Lakewood Ranch about us, educating them on political issues, and promoting like-minded Candidates in all elections.
