Richard DeNapoli Greets Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Chairman Richard DeNapoli

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Chairman Richard DeNapoli

This Saturday, I had the pleasure of welcoming Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal to the Grand Opening of the Coral Springs Romney Headquarters.

The Grand Opening was mentioned in www.browardbeat.com, with excerpts below.

I’ve gotten two e-mails from the Broward County Republican Party in the last week.

That’s two more than I got from the Broward County Democratic Party!

There is no doubt that Republican Chair Richard DeNapoli has modernized the way the GOP gets its message out.

DeNapoli wanted to inform me that Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana will open the Coral Springs Romney Headquarters on Saturday.  The even starts at 4:30 p.m. at 10200 West Sample Road.

I can’t believe Louisiana or a politician from that God Foresaken state has anything to teach us.  Maybe Jindal changed things…but somehow, I doubt it.

When I was young and using the ID press pass you see on this page, I was sent to Louisiana to cover the arrest of a teenager who had killed a number of people in Fort Lauderdale. I couldn’t wait to get out of that backwater, poverty-stricken place.

That aside, there is a point to be made here.

DeNapoli also uses e-mail and Facebook to troll regularly for volunteers to phone bank, walk door-to-door and work in offices.

The point I’m making is whoever runs the Broward Democratic Party needs to step up the Internet effort. On every platform available.

The election this November will once again come down to Florida and Mitt Romney needs our help to ensure victory on election day. The White House cannot be won within a Republican victory in the State of Florida and it’s going to take the efforts of every Floridian committed to the defeat of Barack Obama.
We are phone banking and walking precincts right now, and we need your help!  There are now three office locations in Broward County! Register now by clicking the link above to let us know when you can help!  In an effort to show strong support for Mitt Romney in Florida, we are also assembling coalitions of people who have similar interests. From Seniors to Veterans, to Young Professionals and Doctors, these coalitions are free to join and do not require any time or effort. By simply adding your name to a coalition, you can help show other undecided voters that Mitt Romney has strong support from Florida voters with similar affiliations. This simple task can make a difference in Florida, so please take a moment to click on the link above to join one or more coalitions in support of Mitt Romney.

If you know of anyone that may fall under any of the coalitions, or anyone else you think might want to volunteer, please take the time to forward this e-mail to them with a request from you that they join you in support of Mitt Romney.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 954-941-7775 or email headquarters@browardgop.org.

Broward GOP Successful at Getting Dead People Listed as “Active Voters” Removed from Broward Rolls

ICYMI: 

BROWARD GOP SUCCESSFUL 

AT GETTING DEAD PEOPLE LISTED AS “ACTIVE VOTERS” 

REMOVED FROM BROWARD ROLLS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

July 11, 2012

Contact Richard DeNapoli, Chairman

954-298-9121

On May 21, 2012, the Broward Republican Executive Committee (“BREC”) issued a press release and supplied evidence to the media showing that deceased people from Broward County were still listed as “active” and “eligible to vote” voters on the Broward County rolls.  The evidence was provided to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections (“Broward SOE”), Dr. Brenda C. Snipes.  (Please see our original press releases and coverage below.)

Dr. Snipes informed the media (on May 21, 2012) that about 5,000 dead people had already been removed from the voter rolls, yet the hundreds that the BREC found still remained on the rolls. After the BREC received coverage in the local newspapers, CBS News 4 (Miami), and Fox News, the names of the dead yet still “active” voters that the BREC discovered were finally removed the weekend before our June BREC meeting.

Chairman DeNapoli announced the Broward GOP’s success at the June 25, 2012, BREC meeting.  You can watch the video by clicking below.

Book description of An American Son from Amazon.com – you can get your own copy from Amazon by clicking: www.amazon.com

Few politicians have risen to national prominence as quickly as Marco Rubio. At age forty-one he’s the subject of widespread interest and speculation. But he has never before told the full story of his unlikely journey, with all the twists and turns that made him an American son.

That journey began when his parents first left Cuba in 1956. After Fidel Castro solidified his Communist grip on power, Mario and Oria Rubio could never again return to their homeland. But they embraced their new country and taught their children to appreciate its unique opportunities. Every sacrifice they made over the years, as they worked hard at blue-collar jobs in Miami and Las Vegas, was for their children.

As a boy, Rubio spent countless hours with his grandfather, discussing history and current events. “Papa” loved being Cuban, but he also loved America for being a beacon of liberty to oppressed people around the world. As Rubio puts it, “My grandfather didn’t know America was exceptional because he read about it in a book. He lived it and saw it with his own eyes.”

Devastated after his grandfather’s death, Rubio was getting poor grades and struggled to fit in at his high school, where some classmates mocked him as “too American.” But then he buckled down for college and law school, driven by his twin passions for football and politics. He played football at a small college in Mis­souri, then came back to Florida to attend Santa Fe Community College and the University of Florida. He went on to earn his law degree from the University of Miami and took a job at a law firm, which paid him a handsome salary that allowed his father to retire.

As a young attorney he ran for the West Miami City Commission, a role that led to the Florida House of Representatives. In just six years he rose to Speaker of the House and became a leading advocate for free enter­prise, better schools, limited government, and a fairer, simpler tax system. He found that he could connect with people across party lines while still upholding conserva­tive values.

His U.S. Senate campaign started as an extreme long shot against Florida’s popular incumbent governor, Charlie Crist. Undaunted by the early poll numbers and the time away from his wife and kids, Rubio traveled the state with his message of empowerment and optimism. He upset Crist in both the primary and a dramatic three-way general election, after Crist quit the GOP to run as an independent.

Now Rubio speaks on the national stage about the challenges we face and the better future that’s possible if we return to our founding principles. As he puts it, “Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Con­servatism is about allowing people to catch up.”

In that vision, as in his family’s story, Rubio proves that the American Dream is still alive for those who pur­sue it.

Memorial Day

Today we honor those men and women who have died while serving in the United States Armed Services.  Please see below for a Memorial Day message from State Representative George Moraitis as well as a video of President Reagan’s Remarks from May 28, 1984, at Memorial Day Ceremonies Honoring an Unknown Serviceman of the Vietnam Conflict.

God Bless America,

Moraitis

A Memorial Day Message from 

State Representative George Moraitis 

Dear Neighbors,

History tells us that Memorial Day was first known as Decoration Day. It was a day when the graves of soldiers who fell in America’s Civil War were decorated by family and friends wishing to honor and remember them. Today, Memorial Day is a time when we remember all from our nation’s past who have fallen while fighting for our freedom. We share stories of heroism and bravery with young and old, and in doing so we decorate the memories of our military’s fallen heroes.

Please join me in saluting these men and women who have laid their lives down in defending our sacred freedoms. Let us each take time this Memorial Day not just to enjoy a day off work, but rather let us take the time to decorate the memories of those who, in the words of President Lincoln, have given “the last full measure of devotion.”

May God continue to bless this great nation of ours as we honor those who have fallen in service to our country.

Sincerely,

George Moraitis

State Representative

“FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Can you be in the grave, but still have a pulse to vote? The answer is yes, in South Florida.

Using a new data base, the Florida Department of State found nearly 52,000 dead people still listed as active voters. So far, Broward has pulled out 4,482 names of dead voters from the rolls; Miami-Dade has dropped 4,860 dead voters from the rolls, according to Chris Cate, the Communications director at the Florida Department of State.

“Obviously it’s absurd, but how do you police it, I don’t know,” wondered voter Augi Moran. Read more

Almost 500 Republicans attend 2012 Broward Lincoln Day Gala

As featured in The Examiner, a story about our successful Lincoln Day Dinner 2012…

Richard DeNapoli and Attorney General Pam Bondi

Living up to a campaign promise and his Eight Point Platform for the Broward Republican Party, Chairman Richard DeNapoli staged yet another successful fundraiser in Saturday’s Lincoln Day Gala.

Almost 500 Republicans attended the annual Lincoln Day Gala at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was the featured keynote speaker at the Broward Republican Party event. Chief Financial Officer Jeff AtwaterCongressman Allen West (FL-22), and Republican National Committee co-chair Sharon Day were among special guest speakers in attendance.

Party Secretary Michael De Gruccio returned as the 2012 event chairman.

“It was my honor to return as chairman of the 2012 Broward County Lincoln Day Gala,” said De Gruccio. “We had an amazing keynote speaker followed by special guest speakers that not only honored the legacy of President Abraham Lincoln but our Republican elected officials.”

Prior to the dinner, BREC Chairman Richard DeNapoli hosted a VIP Reception for nearly 200 that included the Florida Attorney General, the state Chief Financial Officer, a prominent Congressman, the Republican National Committee Co-Chairman, a number of local, state, and federal officials as well as candidates for public office.

“The VIP reception offered an opportunity to chat one-on-one with Attorney General Pam Bondi, the keynote speaker and special guests CFO Jeff Atwater Congressman Allen West, and RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day” said DeNapoli. “Guests also had an opportunity to speak with candidates running for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, the Florida House and Senate, as well as local Broward County offices.”

Returning as auctioneer from appearances at both the 2011 Broward Lincoln Day Gala and the inaugural Grand Old Party BBQ was Highlands County Commissioner Don Elwell. Standing tall above the crowd, Elwell successfully raised thousands of dollars for local Republicans through a live auction.

Attorney General Pam Bondi opened the evening as the featured keynote speaker with a feisty and dynamic speech on a variety of issues. Bondi, who had just returned from a trip to New York and the taping of a segment on Sean Hannity, donated a pink tie – autographed by Hannity – for the evening’s live auction.

Still excited from her recent argument before the U.S. Supreme Court on the constitutionality of Obamacare, Bondi recalled some of her experiences concerning the case.

Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater followed stating that “you have the state of Florida and our federal government taking two very different paths. In the great state of Florida where you have elected Rick Scott, where you have elected Pam Bondi, Adam Putnam, and a Republican legislature – this is what happens in a downturn. You get people that go to bat for you.”

“Things in Florida are completely different from the federal government. The federal government has raised your taxes, raised the debt, increased regulation. In the state of Florida the last three years has been the exact opposite – your taxes were reduced, regulation was reduced, and debt was reduced.”

Congressman Allen West fired up conservatives, telling Republicans to “find the enemy and fight them wherever they are.” Like American paratroopers before the D-day invasion, West said they “must be like sharks that smell blood in the water.”

The audience applauded and cheered throughout his 19 minute speech, as West appeared before Broward Republican’s for a final time.

West concluded with words from the farewell speech given by Confederate General Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson when he was promoted by Robert E. Lee.

“He said to his brigade they would always be first in his heart,” said West. “Broward County will always be first in my heart, and I will never forget you,” he told the standing room only crowd.

Special guest and Republican National Committee co-Chair Sharon Day was also encouraged by the work of the Broward Republican Executive Committee and stated so in an interview following the event.

“It was great to see so many Broward Republicans together in such a Democratic stronghold. Taking back the White House and the Senate is the only way we can save America.”

“Lincoln Day was an overwhelming success,” former Plantation Councilman and BREC Executive Director Rico Petrocelli stated. “It was encouraging to see many new faces from throughout Broward.”

Richard DeNapoli Speaks to Students at Pinecrest School

I had the pleasure of speaking to the students at the Pinecrest School about politics and why young people should vote Republican.  The Pinecrest School posted pictures on their website.  You can read their article below.

Pine Crest Students Discuss Election 2012 with Political Party Leaders

4/17/2012
A Look at Election 2012 – Lunchtime Roundtable Conversations put our students at the table with the Chairs of the Democratic and Repulican Parties of Broward County. Mr. Mitch Ceasar, Democratic Chair, and Mr. Richard DeNapoli, Republican Chair, shared their personal road to political activism and discussed the issues that frame this year’s Presidential Election.

Students learned how important Broward County votes are for Florida and nationally and thus why “getting out the vote” truly matters. Punctuated with a steady flow of questions and answers, these lunch and learn sessions will continue in the fall when our guests return for more lively sessions.
