Miami-Dade Republican Liberty Caucus - March 12th, 2010
Thanks to everyone who went to the last meeting. It was a lot of fun meeting all of you and sharing our hopes and ideas. To those who were not able to attend, we agreed that meetings will be taking place on the last Sunday of every month at 6PM. An overall strategy was also discussed which can be found on our Meetup and new Facebook Page.
The next Meetup will then take place March 28th. We will be officially subscribing founding members in order to petition the state organization to recognize us as an affiliate group. We only need 12 dues-paying members to gain affiliate status (there are a lot of perks for our group once we achieve affiliate status). The $30 membership fee will be paid directly at the state chapter���s website, RLCFL.org.
Meeting is scheduled at 6PM but will officially begin at 6:15PM and try not to run past 7:15PM.
We will also have a guest speaker, Mr. Marcus Rivchin who is running for State House District 117 (www.MarcusRivchin.com), who will be discussing the how Florida went from being the most prosperous state in America to one of the worst performing economies in America.
