The Latino Perspective Panel  
How do we get Latinos to vote Republican?





This exciting panel consists of many top Latino movers and shakers active in the Republican Party.  They will be answering some questions and giving their thoughts on:


Why are Hispanics hesitant to join the Republican Party?


What does the Republican Party need to do to engage the Hispanic electorate?


What is the Hispanic community's perception of the Republican Party and how can this perception be changed?


Why didn't we capture a larger voting block by Latinos in California in the 2010 elections?

Republican Business Directory  
Do Business with fellow Republicans

In these tough economic times we have decided to help each other out economically.

We are preparing a business roster of Republicans for SFVRC members.  This will be merged with a county-wide business directory that is being prepared by LA County Republican Clubs.

We are encouraging all of our members to patronize the businesses of our fellow members and Republicans.  If you need goods and services, why not have them provided by your fellow Republicans?

For those of you who would like to have your business listed in our business directory, please send an email to:

Provide your name, the name and street address of your business, your business phone number, your business web site address, and your email address.  Also provide a description of the services you provide or the type of goods you sell.

We would like to publish this directory by March, so please send in your information.  Send an email with the above information.

We expect to have another great meeting of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club on Tuesday, May 3rd.     

I hope to see you there.
