Remarks by our Chairman - January 16, 2018
Welcome to the official website of the Republican Party of Lake County, Florida.
2018 is going to be an exciting election year!
First, the Republican Party of Florida has kicked off the “Drive for Five” mission in Florida.
This mission is to keep the five cabinet level positions of Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Agriculture Commissioner and Chief Financial Officer in Republican hands, since all of these positions have termed-out and are now open seats.
Democrat Senator Bill Nelson is also up for re-election and it is time to make both Florida Senators Republican!
Our local Florida House Representatives and Senators are up for re-election.
In Lake County we will have two county commission seats up for re-election and three school board seats.
And of course, the various municipalities in the county will have open seats.
I can’t stress enough the importance of keeping incumbent positions in Republican hands and gaining even more Republican officials!
We will need a strong army of Republican volunteers here in Lake County to make sure these offices are won by qualified Republican candidates.
SO HOW CAN YOU HELP ACHIEVE THESE GOALS?
First, when you select Upcoming Events from the menu, you will find listed in chronological order, events, some of which are fund raisers so that we can maintain operations and provide help for Republican candidates for office. If you are unable to attend the events, donations are also appreciated, which can be made here on the home page.
Next, when you select Our Party, you will find the contact information for our various Lake County Republican Clubs showing the meeting locations and times. The clubs generally have timely speakers of interest and anyone can attend these meetings as well.
Positions are also available for the Best Republican Executive Committee in the State of Florida! The Executive Committee is composed of Precinct Committeemen and Committeewomen. These are very important positions since the executive members coordinate the “get out the vote” activities for their respective precincts and help decide Republican policy for Lake County.
Just go to the “Our Party” tab and drop down to “Party Membership”. If you do not see a committee person from your precinct, then we have an open position and would love to have you. Even if you see someone from your precinct, check with us since many precincts have room for more committee members.
All Republicans are welcome and encouraged to attend any of the meetings and events listed on this website.
Contact information for all of our officers can be found here. Feel free to contact any of us with any questions or concerns you may have.
I look forward to meeting and working with you soon.
Walter B. Price, Sr.
Chairman, Lake County Republican Party
