History of the Lakewood Ranch Republican Club:

In June, 2006, Donna Hayes, a Manatee County Commissioner, initiated the process of founding the Lakewood Ranch Republican Club. She saw how much the Lakewood Ranch area was growing and in need of a Republican Club. There was an organizational meeting held at the Polo Grill in Lakewood Ranch with 24 community leaders in attendance. Dr. Craig Trigueiro was nominated as President with Marcelle Hagood and John Barton to serve on the board. Officers were then nominated and voted in at the first formal meeting.
