President's Message October 2018
October 2018 will be a memorable one for San Clemente Republican Women.
Our special speaker event on Friday, October 19th with Congressman Jason Chaffetz at the Irvine Marriott Hotel is a fundraising event, that promises to open the eyes of our attendees as Congressman Chaffetz tells us more about The Deep State than we ever thought possible!
Seriously, many authorities tell us that the upcoming mid-term election is the most important one of our life time. Yes, my fellow SCARWF members, this is one election where all hands must be on deck to vote and help get others to come to the polls to cast their ballots! We have a clear choice to make, continue with the efforts of President Trump and his administration by maintaining control of Congress and the Senate or allow the Democrats to turn back the clock to an era of limited expectations and dire consequences for our families and our country if they control things and take away our tax cuts and stifle the growth of our nation!
We need you to walk precincts, make phone calls, stuff envelopes and attend rallies, and vote! But it does not end there! Please sign up to be an observer at the Registrar of Voters after the election as they process absentee ballots. They need interested Republicans to stands behind the people who make the decision to accept or reject a potential absentee ballot based on whether the signature on the back of the envelope matches that person’s original registration signature! Believe me, lots of fraudulent ones have been making it through the process! We need to be there to prevent it! The Election Integrity Project also trains people to be polling place watchers. And also, it may still not be too late to volunteer to be a poll worker at one of the many polling places in our community.
Be sure to volunteer at our Congressional District candidate, Diane Harkey’s campaign headquarters in San Juan Capistrano and/or assist at our voter registration booth either on Del Mar Street in San Clemente or at the Mission Viejo Mall. Make this the year you step up your participation as a Republican Woman so we can have a winning year for us all!
On October 10th I hope you will be on hand at our General Meeting to hear the Republican candidates for San Clemente City Council as well as for State wide offices such as for Controller, Konstantitos Roditis.
We will also provide an opportunity to ask questions about the Propositions on the ballot.
The amazing accomplishments of President Trump has given us the most robust economy in 40 plus year with the lowest unemployment rate in eighteen years! Hispanic and Black Americans now enjoy the lowest unemployment rate ever! And U.S. factories have been expanding at a thirteen-year record high! President Trump has reduced unnecessary regulations that stifled business. Now we are enjoying a record high increase in small business startups, a record increase in home sales and the stock market.
One must surely chuckle when the prior high office holder makes boastful unsubstantiated claims that the boom was his creation! We all know the truth, that the great economic turnaround for the USA was accomplished by President Trump and his administration despite excessive opposition from the Democrats and most of the media!
Please see the Partial List of President Trumps Accomplishments later in this edition of the Tide! Also, the actions of Democrats in California, and why you absolutely need to vote in this midterm and encourage everyone you know to vote! We need 99% participation by Republicans to ensure that Orange County Congressional candidates are elected and our State-wide offices are returned to Republican hands! Say you - impossible! The Democrats have a strangle hold on the state, well that is not an absolutely done deal! Many Democrats are sick of the bad result or no result of their leaders and in fact there is a movement about to re-register Democrats to Republican!!
Now we come to a rallying point for our side, Prop 6, the Repeal the Gas Tax Proposition. Vote Yes on 6 to end the boondoggle about a high-speed rail from LA to San Francisco. This is a fairytale with an enormous price tag! To get out a higher than usual mid-term voter pool we need to be sure to push for Yes on Prop 6!!
Look forward to seeing you at our General meeting, October 10th!
Mollie Lazarus, President
