Teresa Hernandez has a very interesting three point plan for immigration reform includes a guest-worker program without a pathway to citizenship. It was recently approved by the Lincoln Club of Orange County on which Teresa is a member of the board. 


Mrs.Hernandez began her professional career as a registered nurse and now serves on the Governing Board of Greater El Monte. As Vice President of Hernandez Productions she is involved in producing Mariachi Festivals and shows across the United States and the Mariachi Heritage Society which she and her husband formed provides in-school and after school music classes for local children who could other wise not afford lessons or instruments.  With her husband, Jose, Teresa is owner of Restaurant Cielito Lindo in South El Monte.


Teresa is a board member of the Hispanic 100, she is on the State Board of California Women's Leadership Association, serves as the Chairwoman of the Latino Outreach Committee and truly proving her commitment to Republican values, two years ago she ran for Congress in the special election to replace Hilda Solis. With four children, the restaurant and all her other activities she is truly an example of if you want something done, give it to a busy person.

Precinct Volunteer Coordinator  
Seeking Volunteer for this Position

We are often asked by local candidates to provide volunteers to assist their campaigns.  In the past we have had aPrecinct Volunteer Coordinator who was in charge of the activity.  If any of you would like to help out our local San Fernando Valley candidates by organizing volunteers and assigning them to various local campaigns we would appreciate it.

This is an important critical position for election victories in the SFV.  It isn't complicated, and we can train you in an hour or two.  Please send me an email at aminoff@sfvrc.orgif you are willing to take on the position of Precinct Volunteer Coordinator for SFVRC. Thank you.

Party Announcement - 10th Anniv.  

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.

 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:
