The MISSION of the REC is to increase Republican registration in Putnam County and to promote an informed electorate through political education.
We also work to foster loyalty to the Republican Party and increase public awareness of the Putnam Republican Executive Committee and Republican clubs.
Most importantly, we seek qualified candidates who support the Republican philosophy and goals. We work hard to ensure voters have enough information to make wise choices in the primaries.
We promote the election of all Republican candidates in the General Election.
I Believe… The proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to be done but cannot be done, or cannot be done as well, by individuals, and that the most effective government is government closest to the people.
I Believe… Good government is based upon the individual and that each person’s ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized.
I Believe… The free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative and incentive have given this nation an economic system second to none.
I Believe… Sound money management should be our goal.
I Believe… In equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin.
I Believe… We must retain those principles of the past worth retaining, yet always be receptive to new ideas with an outlook broad enough to accommodate thoughtful change and varying points of view.
I Believe… That Americans value, and should preserve their feeling of national strength and pride, and at the same time share with people everywhere a desire for peace, freedom and the extension of human rights throughout the world.
I Believe… The Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
We mourn the passing of our Vice Chair, Mike Cribby on November 15. A memorial get together was held at the REC HQ on November 25. He will be greatly missed!
Elections for officers of Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary will be held December 15. If you are interested in running for any of these offices, please contact _____.
PUTNAM REPUBLICAN CLUB: The objectives of the club are to provide a forum for Republicans to educate voters about issues affecting our county and develop ways members can contribute. A priority we have is to support and elect all duly nominated Republican candidates in the General Election.
The Club meets at 6 pm every second Tuesday of each month at St. Johns River State College, , Palatka, FL. Visit our website or go to our Facebook page to find out more about the club and the events they have planned. NEED LOGO
We encourage the formation of more clubs in the County to reduce travel time to meetings/events and promote Republican activities throughout the County.
I asked Putnam TARS Advisor Leon Edenfield what he’d like to say here and if he’d like a page on our website.
