FEBRUARY 7 -9, 2020 

Thank you, Federated Republicans, for allowing me, Janet Gardner & Suzanne Jones to attend the Winter Conference in San Diego.  The conference was packed with programs, speakers and workshops all designed to inspire us to “Chart Our Course” for the future.

There were three themes that resonated throughout the Conference.  Proposition 13 in the March and November Ballot. Ernie Dronenburg San Diego Assessor and Jordan Marks Taxpayer Rights Advocate unanimously said VOTE NO on both. More information on the Split Tax in November https://advocacy.calchamber.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/2020-Business-Issues-Taxation-Split-Roll-Battle.pdf

The second theme were people highlighting the brilliant President we have in Donald Trump! We heard from Stephanie Myers an Hispanic adviser to President Trump on our military and our veterans. She supported President’s Trump record of hiring and appointing Hispanics to his cabinets. Tommy Knepper President and Co-founder of Infield Strategies. He revealed how President Trump’s marketing techniques has revolutionized the media and that same machinery has already begun to re-elect him for 4 more years! Joy Villa singer/songwriter models’ cloths stating "Make America Great Again". She highlighted President Trump’s commitment to all people! 

The last speaker was Bernard Kerick, the 40th Police commissioner of the New York City Police Department during 9/11. He declared America has never had a President, like Donald J. Trump, that would do whatever it takes to protect the Citizens of United States of America. He needs to be re-elected!

The third theme was membership.  They encouraged each person in the Clubs to have one new person join. We are starting a membership contest in March. Membership growth allows more people to help accomplish all that is necessary to turn California around. We aren’t just a place to meet and eat, but a place to be educated and help others understand the truth to deceptive propositions. The Membership drive is listed in our Membership Chairs Caroline Takahashi-Mc Donald's April newsletter article.


On Sunday I attended 2 workshops: Club Publicity & Leadership Development & Mentoring.


Federated leaders, we are billboards of hope that people need to see. This Club is filled with leaders that can educate new Republicans how to be strong and loving in speaking the truth about our values. Everyone recognizes that our President, our brand is working. We just need to come out. Consider making Business Cards and membership applications promoting our meetings and our ideas! I wore a patriotic outfit and my President name tag on Tuesday and had several people excited to talk with me about President Trump. Republicans are awakening in California, freedom from liberal ways is here, there are people excited to talk with me about President Trump. Republicans are awakening in California, freedom from liberal ways is here, there are people looking for hope! 

Leadership Development and Mentoring was the second workshop. This Club is filled with experienced wise, members! We are an incubator for new Republicans coming in regardless of their age or color. We have the experience to impart confidence and strength to assure they advance in their area of influence. This is the time to help one another, to accept our differences and to mentor out of love for the advancement of goodness. Republicans we have a lot to be proud of, let’s stand tall and be ready to help someone come into their fullness.
