President's Message

   Meet President DALE THOMAS    Dale has been a member our club since its inception in 2001. She was "bitten by the politics bug" when she worked as Finance Direcor for the re-election campaign in 1994 for Congressman Ken Calvert (43rd district). She claims, however, that her Republican roots go back as far as her grandmother's campaign efforts for President Dwight Eisenhower and her Air Force family's close friendship with Senator Barry Goldwater.  She grew up in the Washington D.C. area and worked "on the hill" for various congressmen during summer breaks.  Most recently, Dale retired from her position as Vice President of Development for the Los Angeles World Affairs Council. This 45 year-old organization, with more than 4,000 members, is well known for the high profile events it holds for such high profile speakers as Prime Minisiter Tony Bair, Senator John McCain and many other foreign leaders and dignitaries.  Dale lives in Oak Park with her husband of five years, Bob Thomas.  She has two grown children, Brad Cowgill and Brooke Cowgill.

President's Message

The just may be a light at the end of the tunnel.  There is a small ray of hope for sanity that came shining through following the results of the June 5th Primary.  In a state that has been historically held by democrats for far too long - a state that has virtually been destroyed by liberal politicians and their strong hold on our government – there will actually be Republican candidates on the ballot for the General Election on November 6th.

Not just candidates but good, qualified candidates that might actually get elected if common sense and fairness can be reestablished in this state.  With the idiocy of the legislation allowing the top two vote getters in a primary election to move on to the general election regardless of party we have once again been denied a Republican candidate for the Senate seat currently held by Ms. Feinstein.  That is the bad news.

 The good news is that we have a viable candidate running for Governor.  John Cox was endorsed by President Trump and managed to secure his position on the November ballot based on his conservative values.  Be assured that Republicans will work hard for Mr. Cox given the alternative of Gavin Newsom as Governor is unimaginable. I truly believe that Californian’s have had enough and are ready to take their state back. Gavin Newsom will continue the destructive policies of Jerry Brown which have brought California to the brink of total destruction with the highest taxation, gas prices, unemployment and failed immigration policies in the country.  If you consider that Newsom and Antonio Villaragosa together only managed to secure 47% of the total primary vote – the light at the end of the tunnel may seem brighter.

Almost more important that the election of a Republican Governor will be the election of Mark Meuser to replace Alex Padilla as Secretary of State.  It is this position that controls the voter rolls which must be cleaned in order to secure any honesty in future elections.  Judge Bailey for Attorney General is also a must. We must work to repeal the gas tax, we must work to assure that our candidate Rhonda Baldwin Kennedy defeats Jacki Irwin in the Assembly and it is imperative that we work to defeat our Ventura County District 26 do-nothing Congresswoman Julia Brownly and elect Antonio Sabato Jr.,a candidate who actually lives in our District.

We have a limited opportunity right now to work to save California by bringing our candidates to office. If we don’t that light at the end of the tunnel will turn out to be Jerry Brown’s bullet rain to nowhere ready to run us all down. 

God Bless,
Dale
