President’s Message – January 2017
Friends, 2016 was one of the most dynamic years politically that we have ever seen in our State. The outcome of the elections did not favor our local Republican Party although we celebrate the election of President Donald Trump.
As a result of these election results, the way forward is clear. We must make every effort to help find and assist future conservative and Republican candidates in the elections ahead. We must make every effort to help those candidates grow their constituent base and help them win their elections.
To do this it is important that we, as the Nevada Republican Men’s Club, work together to reach out to the public, especially Veterans, and share the conservative values we support.
The Nevada Republican Men’s Club, now in its 36th year, is an organization that continues to grow because of the inclusiveness that exits among its members. We increased our membership by more than 20% in 2016 and we expect to see continued growth in 2017 due to our open, inviting, and informative nature.
As the club’s new President, I invite you to join us and get involved. We host monthly luncheons, on the first Tuesday of each month, at Cili Fine Dining inside the Bali Hai golf club on Las Vegas Boulevard. We provide a three-course gourmet lunch and interesting speakers in an environment that encourages networking and comradery.
Our conservative Happy Hour event, the First Friday Happy Hour, takes place on the first Friday of each month, in the Copa Room at the Bootlegger Italian Bistro on Las Vegas Boulevard. Here you can meet fellow conservatives and mingle while discussing the latest in politics and enjoying some of the best appetizers in Las Vegas.
In addition to our monthly luncheons and Happy Hour events, we are planning our first Golf Outing and Dinner. This will be a fund raising event in support of the 22 Warriors Foundation who provide service dogs to Veterans in need. Details on this sure-to-be-spectacular event are just coming together, so watch for the date and location soon.
2017 promises to be an exciting year with a new Republican President of the United States. We hope that you consider joining us at our monthly luncheons, our Happy Hours events, or at our golf outing and dinner.
I look forward to meeting you, or speaking with you in the next few months. I am eager to listen to any ideas and concepts you suggest so that we can improve the Nevada Republican Men’s Club in any way possible.
President, Nevada Republican Men’s Club
