MONDAY OCTOBER 26
AT THE KEY WEST YACHT CLUB ON NORTH ROOSEVELT BLVD.
COCKTAILS: 6:00PM-7:00PM, MEETING AT 7:00PM
Our next meeting is scheduled for this coming Monday October 26 at the Key West Yacht Club. Thanks again to VP Bob Harvey, former Commodore of the Yacht Club, for making the arrangements. We had 100 attendees at our last meeting at the Yacht Club on October 5 and it was a fun evening. We expect another big crowd on October 26 as the excitement for the November 3 election is upon us. As always, there will be a cash bar so come early and get social.
TRUMP RALLY BEFORE THE MEETING FROM 4:00PM-6:00PM
Casey Scheu, Monroe County Trump Field Organizer and President of the Upper Keys Republican Club, and his team will be holding a Trump Rally with signs and flags before the meeting from 4:00pm-6:00pm at the Yacht Club along N Roosevelt Blvd (US 1) so come early and join in.
REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES TO PROVIDE UPDATES
Our own Ed Russo will give us an update on the Trump campaign from a national perspective and also on our Congressional race in District 26 where Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez is running against DMP. We also plan to hear from:
* Ana Maria Rodriguez, State Senate District 39 candidate

* Dennis Ward, Monroe County State Attorney incumbent and candidate
* Craig Cates, Monroe County Commission District 1 incumbent and candidate
* Eddie Martinez, Monroe County Commission District 3 candidate

GET OUT THE VOTE
There are several ways you can help our candidates:
* Call registered Republicans who have not returned their absentee ballots to remind them to vote. The Supervisor of Elections estimates that 25% of absentee ballots are never returned. We will have a list of the names and phone numbers of registered Republicans who have not returned their ballots by Thursday October 28 and need volunteers to call them by Saturday October 31 and remind them to vote. Contact Antonia (Tonia) Shusta (text: 305-393-6620) or (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) to volunteer from the comfort of your home.
* Hold signs for candidates: Contact any of our candidates to volunteer to hold signs on Election Day November 3. They will all be in attendance at the meeting or you can contact any member of your SRC Executive Board and they will coordinate with the candidate of your choice.
