LOOK­ING AHEAD

Repub­li­can del­e­gate awaits July con­ven­tion

Times of the Islands - - Political Points -

As a 2008 Repub­li­can Na­tional Com­mit­tee al­ter­nate del­e­gate, I am hon­ored and priv­i­leged to have been elected as a [19th Dis­trict] del­e­gate for the Repub­li­can Na­tional Con­ven­tion in Cleve­land this July.

Think­ing back to 2008 in Min­nesota, I re­call a whirl­wind of ac­tiv­i­ties― early morn­ing break­fast meet­ings, speak­ers, meet­ing the can­di­dates, and ac­tiv­i­ties with other del­e­gates, in­clud­ing a LeAnn Rimes con­cert, a tour of the Cathe­dral of St. Paul and shop­ping at the Mall of Amer­ica―what a sight that was, a roller­coaster in­side a mall!

One mo­ment stands out―when male del­e­gates gave their passes to fe­male al­ter­nates and guests so only women were on the con­ven­tion floor, waiv­ing or­ange scarves, when the state of Florida was an­nounced. I still have that scarf tucked away with other mem­o­ra­bilia.

As I think ahead to this year’s con­ven­tion and as a na­tive Cleve­lander, I am ex­cited to head “home” to see fam­ily and friends. Although I am cer­tain the planned ac­tiv­i­ties will be won­der­ful, I am look­ing for­ward to rep­re­sent­ing Florida’s Con­gres­sional Dis­trict 19, dis­cussing rules and pro­ce­dures and, of course, meet­ing our pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee.

I be­lieve this year’s con­ven­tion may go down as one of the most mem­o­rable in his­tory. Repub­li­can del­e­gate Lisa A.
