Are you a member of the Republican ExecutiveCommittee or would youlike to be?Being a Member of theRepublican Executive Com-mittee (REC) can be a lot of fun! You meet people withinteresting views, newfriends, and you have theamazing opportunity toactually make a differencefor your country. You havea responsibility to keep yourprecinct informed, torepresent the people in that precinct and to work hard for yourprecinct. With upcoming elections next year, it is important tobuild a broad base, which is strong and healthy. We need to beready and able to get to work. That means you may be asked tomake calls, walk your precinct, hold meet and greets and reportback to your precinct. You need to help in getting out the word,making sure everyone is registered to vote. Would they prefer anabsentee ballot. Do they know where to early vote? Do they needtransportation?Your role as an REC team player is important. Many times Ihear people say, “All I do is sit there.” Well, I have been on theREC since 1997, and although there may be a lot of time sitting atthe monthly meetings, THIS IS WHERE YOU LEARN WHATIS HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTY. The resources that the RECoffers are vast; you will receive updated precinct lists, a calendarof events each week, and help with your precinct. Also, you willbe able to personally meet the candidates that are running eachelection cycle. But it is up to you to take the responsibility tobuild your precinct and benefit from being a part of the REC.If you have not joined and are thinking about joining, come toa meeting and watch the actual political process unfold. Wewould love to have you be a part of our Republican family. Thenext REC meeting is on Wednesday, April 13.When I was small, my dad took us to places of historicalsignificance. We visited Williamsburg, Gettysburg, Jamestown,Antietam, Harpers Ferry, the battlefields, the Smithsonian, theCapitol, the White House, and it is where I got my love for historyand politics. It is an honor and a blessing to be doing something Ialways wanted to do, as a member of the REC and as Vice Chairof the Palm Beach County Republican Party.
