August 2012 President's Message
What a wonderful Republican Convention in Tampa. The Romney-Ryan ticket is a winner. I do not remember in past elections having such a young, talented group of men and women leading our party across the nation and giving great speeches at the event. What exceptional Republican governors we have working for our party across the nation. The convention’s main theme was that individuals are responsible for their successes—not the government! Make sure you read (and pass on) Mitt Romney’s resume that’s on page 4 of this newsletter.
There is much work to still be done to elect this great ticket and to take back the Senate and increase our presence in Congress. Please consider making phone calls and knocking on doors by working with the Victory Office—there is much work to still do to get the Republican vote. On the other hand, let your friends and neighbors know that Barack Obama as President has let our county down and has made promises that he has not and will not be able to keep. Make sure Barack Obama is a one-time President.
Our FMRWC continues to grown and draw large attendance at our meeting forums. We have 135 members and 24 associate members; we are the largest Republican club in Lee County thanks to all of you.
Our Legislative Leader has another great forum coming for September—candidates for the Lee Memorial Health System Board of Directors and two of the candidates running a close race for the Lee County School Board will be our forum speakers.
Our club endorsed several candidates for the Primary Elections: Meg Steinbeck (as a judge she could not accept), Nancy Mc Govern, Mike Scott, Linda Doggett and Frank Mann who all won their race for office. We also endorsed Chauncey Goss and Don Stil-well who came in second in their races. Congratulations to all Republican winners in our primaries.
Please help our Republican Party keep up the wonderful momentum we have going to win this election and take back the White House and the Senate seat from our region.
Keep up the great work that you are all doing to keep our party agenda and great candidates out there to be elected in November. Remind everyone you
