ORANGE PARK, FL- The Republican Party of Clay County (REC) re-elects Leslie Dougher, Chairman, Steve Boccieri,, Treasurer and Rod Swartz, Secretary at its bi-annual Executive Board Elections Monday, December 3, 2012 at the Orange Park Town Hall.
“All three of these individuals have proved to be outstanding board members. The strength of and partnership with the Clay County REC is tantamount to the unprecedented 73% Republican voter turn-out in the general election. We are happy to have them continue in this capacity,” says Judith Chapple, Clay County’s RPOF Victory Office Field Director.
Joining the board in the position of Vice Chairman is Curtis McClees. McClees is a local business owner and has been a member of the REC for more than twenty years. He has served the Republican Party and the local community for decades.
Steve Boccieri has served as the party’s Treasurer for eight years. Boccieri owns an accounting firm and has served as a Board Member of the Clay County Fair. Boccieri has tried to pass the baton many times, but the members know the intricacies of the financial reporting during campaign season and adherence to campaign finance laws, makes him too valuable to let go. His accounting skills are deeply appreciated.
Rod Swartz is serving his second term as the party’s Secretary. Swartz is highly skilled in the new technology of communications. “He has really brought us into the 21st century and continues to look for ways for us to expand our reach through better messaging”, says Dougher. Swartz is a financial professional and Regional Vice President with Primerica.
"I'm honored the Committee has allowed me to serve another term. We have one of the strongest conservative Republican Executive Committees in the state," says Dougher. "I'm confident we will continue to maintain a heavy Republican turnout in 2014 for Governor's Scott’s reelection."
"I made my decision to run for another term knowing that we have some heavy lifting to do in the New Year. We had a polarizing primary and general election within our local party, but now that the elections are over, it is imperative that we put come together and focus on the future of our country."
“I look forward to working with this very accomplished board and the members of Clay County's Grand Old Party for another term. It is our goal to continue to be a role model for the rest of the state. We believe the country would be better off had it followed Clay County’s lead,” Dougher said.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Governor Scott and US Senate Candidate Connie Mack along with RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry visited the Clay County Elections Headquarters / Romney Victory Office today to acknowledge the efforts of countless volunteers over the last many months to secure Republican victories in the upcoming elections.
With a little over 100 hours left before election day, Clay County early voting has broken records in turn out each day of early voting. "With 62.7% of Republicans so far turning out to vote, this is the highest percentage of turn-out we have ever seen," says Leslie Dougher, Chairman of the Republican Party of Clay County.
"People are fed up and want a true change in their leadership with a proven businessman that can turn our county around economically like Mitt Romney did with the Utah Olympics, Staples, Sports Authority, as well as erasing Massachusetts' multi-billion dollar debit with bi-partisan support. Additionally, people are tired of the false attacks and are extremely motivated to get out and vote for Romney's positive message."
Chairman, Clay Republican Party
For immediate release: October 2nd, 2012
I would like to respectfully challenge you to a public debate, before this November’s election, with a format and location of your choice. This would be an opportunity for you to defend your record in light of the conditions in Congressional District 5 after 20 years of your leadership. It would also give you the chance to explain your support of homosexual marriage when the overwhelming majority of your constituents are against it.
In addition to the above, you could address what you find insulting in my statement that you are a member of the Socialist Party of America and the Congressional Progressive Caucus, (Progressive=Socialist=Communist). The Communist Party of America has already publicly stated that the Congressional Progressive Caucus are their allies. Your membership in these groups is a matter of public record.
I hope we can agree that the people deserve to know the truth about where their representatives stand. By accepting this challenge, you will show that you respect the people’s right to know the facts and are not trying to hide the truth from those you claim to represent.
