A LETTER FROM STATE REPRESENTATIVE GEORGE MORAITIS

Dear Friends,

I’m writing to thank Richard DeNapoli for his outstanding service to our party as Chairman of the Broward Republican Executive Committee these past two years. We have all benefited from his leadership, dedication and organization in helping Republicans in our county get elected at all levels of government. We will miss Richard’s steady presence and enthusiasm, however I congratulate him on his professional opportunity and desire to spend time with his growing family.
This was undoubtedly a difficult election for conservatives. Significant challenges lie ahead for our party to reach a changing electorate without compromising the founding principles of individual responsibility and limited government which helped make this nation a beacon of hope for the world.
That said, Richard has done a great job during his term energizing our volunteers and making the case for getting conservatives elected. The next Chairman must be prepared to lead by example as Richard has in organizing our party to move forward.  Let’s all thank Richard for his dedicated service and friendship as Chairman of our party.
Fair Winds and Following Seas to Richard and his family.
Sincerely,
George Moraitis
State Representative, District 93

Happy Veterans Day! Ways to Say Thanks

HAPPY VETERANS DAY!

  

Here’s wishing all of America’s Veterans a Happy Veterans Day!  Remember to thank a veteran or soldier for defending our liberty and freedom.  Please see below for 4 ways to show your appreciation to America’s vets and those still in uniform – that was featured in this past weekend’s Parade magazine.

God Bless America,

Richard DeNapoli, Chairman

Broward Republican Party

4 Ways to Say Thanks on Veterans Day

Want to say thank you to someone who’s served? Here are four ways to show your appreciation to America’s vets and those still in uniform.

  

1. Share your miles.
With just a phone call or a few clicks, you can transfer frequent flier miles from many airlines to  Fisher House Foundation’s “Hero Miles” program, which has provided more than 30,000 flights to service members and their loved ones traveling to VA hospitals.

2. Make a quilt for a child.
Sign up with Operation Kid Comfort to receive fabric squares printed with photos from a family with a deployed service member; sew the squares into a quilt (it takes about 10 hours) and then mail your gift to a child who misses Mom or Dad.

3. Print out the DAV Rx Card.
It’s free, available to anyone (regardless of your insurance), and every time you use the card at a participating pharmacy, 50 cents goes to Disabled American Veterans (DAV). Plus, it may help you save up to 75 percent on your prescriptions.

4. Send leftover Halloween candy.
Or a knitted scarf-or best of all, a handwritten letter. Operation Gratitude is collecting these items and more to fill care packages for vets and active-duty troops and their families. Visit their website to find a list of what to donate.

11 Ways to Say Thanks from Last Year’s Parade Magazine:

1. Give shelter.  Homes for Our Troops constructs houses for severely injured veterans who served after 9/11. Donate equipment or help build a home.homesforourtroops.org

2. Offer a vet a ride.  The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) provides free transportation to men and women unable to travel to VA medical facilities on their own. You can volunteer to drive a DAV van for those in need.dav.org/volunteers

3. Provide foster care for a pet.  Take in the dog or cat of a deployed soldier or a wounded veteran while he or she is on duty or receiving VA medical treatment. guardianangelsforsoldierspet.org

4. Record a war story. Do you know an old soldier with tales from the front lines? The Library of Congress wants to hear his voice. Go to the website below for tips on conducting an interview or to request a field kit, including biographical data and release forms.

loc.gov/vets

5. Put those old cell phones to good use. Instead of stashing your used phones in the junk drawer, ship them to Cell Phones for Soldiers. For each one donated, the organization will pay for an hour of talk time for troops overseas.cellphonesforsoldiers.com

6. Donate used DVDs. Drop off movies or television shows at your local VA facility, or mail them to DVDs4Vets, a national organization that distributes them where needed.

dvds4vets.org

7. Cut coupons. Have some expired coupons lying around? Military families can use them for up to six months past their end date.

coupsfortroops.com

 

8. Contribute to a holiday drive. Operation Gratitude’s annual campaign collects clothing, food, and more and packs it in gift boxes for service members. Pitch in by offering up items; local residents can sort them on-site.operationgratitude.com/volunteer

9. Post a care package. Through the organization Kitchen Table Gang, hospitalized veterans and troops abroad can receive personalized parcels containing everything from candy to board games. Get a service member’s address from KTG, bundle up items with a note of thanks, and send them off.soldierpackages.org

10. Share your expertise. MilServe connects volunteers with vets in many areas: financial counseling or legal services; job search guidance; even carpentry, for building wheelchair ramps.

milserve.org

11. Support Big Brothers Big Sisters. The national organization has a special Military Mentoring program for children with parents in the armed forces. The group carefully pairs kids with adults serving in the military, as well as with veterans and civilians.

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,

Richard DeNapoli, Chairman

Broward Republican Party

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

Richard DeNapoli on CBS 4 Discussing Broward GOP’s Finding of Dead People Still Listed as Active on the Broward Rolls

BREC Chairman Richard DeNapoli appears on CBS 4 

to Talk about the Broward GOP’s Finding of 

Dead People Still Listed as Active on the Broward Rolls

“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
