Kevin James will speak at our May meeting to give us him insight into his campaign, why he didn't make the top two, what he should have done differently, and why he chose to endorse Eric Garcetti for Mayor.

This is your chance to ask Kevin questions about his campaign and his endorsement of Garcetti.

 Dan Stroncak  
Candidate for City Council

There is a special election on May 21st for the vacant seat in the City Council of the City of Los Angeles, District #6.   

There is a Republican candidate running,  Dan Stroncak.  Dan has been endorsed by the Republican Party of Los Angeles County.


 Dan Stroncak is a write-in candidate.  He will not be on the ballot, but for those of you who live in the 6th City Council District, you can write his name in.


This request was sent to me by one of Dan's supporters: 


"My request is that everyone (if they want to) donate one page of forever stamps (20 stamps --  just under $10 )  for Dan Stroncak campaign.  This would be away to pay for postage and help Dan's campaign with the postage bill.  Roger and I have been sending out cards to gated community people.  David said that nothing would have to be reported since the individual donation is under a $100.

The postcards now are for the people who vote by mail.  The next set of cards would be for people voting on election day.  

Also,  more people are needed to walk precincts, phoning and etc.  The Republicans I contacted were supportive for Dan.  The old Tony Cardenas district, I feel, has not been contacted, as well as, Padilla's district.  If these areas can be drawn into the party more and more, it might help us now and in the future."

Schools for Subversion  
Schools for Subversives This will be a great program.  If you are concerned about the indoctrination in our public schools, you will want to attend this on Monday night, May 6th at the Luxe Hotel.

First FlightFirst Attack 

Thursday, May 9, you're invited to a one-night-only screening of the new documentary film, "First Attack: The History of the 1st Battalion, 227th Aviation Regiment." 
The filmmakers, who are all conservatives, will be there for a Q&A after the film, as will the movie's host and narrator, Peabody Award-Winning International Film and Television Star Nick Searcy. Additionally, members of the 227th will be on-hand to view the film along with us.

The screening will be at the AMC 16 Theater in Burbank. The film begins at 8pm, and doors open at 7pm. It's a first come, first seated event, so please arrive early.
One of the founders of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club, Eric Porvaznik, played a major role in the production of the film.  Go here to see a short trailer:

Suggested donation of $10 admission, every cent of which goes to the Air Warrior Courage Foundation, can be handled at the AWCF website (, and there will be representatives at the screening as well. Anyone who would like to donate more than $10 is encouraged to help out such a worthy cause.

After the screening, please join the party at the Barney's Beanery Burbank location, only a few steps from the AMC 16.
This event is a great and political chance to come out to honor the amazing members of the 227th by supporting an amazing documentary, meet some true American heroes, and have a great time afterward at Barney's. Look forward to seeing as many of you as possible!
AFA Heroes of Conscience Dinner  
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 

The American Freedom Alliance is having its Seventh AnnualHeroes of Conscience Award Dinner on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at the Olympic Collection from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.  One of the people being honored at the dinner is B. Wayne Hughes who spoke to SFVRC last year.  Allen West will be honored, as will Leila Beckwith and Tammy Benjamin who formed Am'cha, an organization that fights anti-semitism on college campuses. Dennis Prager will speak, and political cartoonist Michael Ramirez will MC.  Some of you attended the dinner last year and probably would like to again this year.

I know the price is a little steep for some of you, so if you want to attend, send me an email at  I believe there will be some discounted tickets as we get closer to the event.  I will let you know how much the discounted tickets are and you can then decide if you want to attend.  

This is always a great evening.

AFA Heroes of Conscience Dinner 

HOLD THE DATE! September 15, 2013  

On Sunday, September 15th, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm we will be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club.  We will provide you more information about the venue shortly.  Just hold the date so you can join us in the celebration.
Dine and Donate at Fatburger  
Fatburger LogoPanorama Fatburger is offering an opportunity to help SFVRC

As you know the Panorama City Fatburger is owned by two Republicans, Julie Nguyen and John Quintanilla.  They are offering an opportunity for SFVRC members to eat at Fatburger.  It is only two blocks from where we meet at Galpin Ford, so it is easy to go there before or after our meeting, but the offer applies anytime.  

Go eat at Panorama City Fatburger, 8261 Sepulveda Blvd (at the corner of Roscoe) Panorama City, 91402.  The phone number there is (818)894-7888.  Keep your receipt and bring it to me or to Karen Klaparda, our secretary.  We can then turn the receipts in to Fatburger and they will donate 15% of the receipts to SFVRC.  It is a great way to help the club by having Fatburger donate a percentage of your bill, but it also helps a local business run by Republicans.
