On 2/21/2012, I was privileged to be a guest at a Meeting of The Republican Club of Lakewood, NJ. The meeting was opened by Club President, Gregg Theibault. Members and guests of the club gathered to welcome Senator Joseph Kyrillos, and wish him well with his campaign to unseat Democrat, Robert Menendez. The evening was punctuated by speeches from Senator Joseph Kyrillos, Senator Robert Singer, Ocean County Sherriff, William Polhemus, Under Sherriff, William Sommeling, Lakewood Mayor, Menashe Miller, Lakewood Deputy Mayor Albert Ackerman, and Lakewood Committeeman Steven Langert. The club voted to endorse and support Senator Kyrillos and Sherriff Bill Polhemus in their bids for office.
All of the estimated 50 attendees at the gathering had a great time, there was lots of time to chat and mix, and say hello to old and new friends. Multiple guests, including me, took the opportunity to apply for membership. The Republican Club meets monthly, and is seeking to increase the membership by registered Republicans that are residents of Lakewood Township. Club dues at $10.00. The next regular meeting is scheduled for March 20, 2012. If residents are interested in membership in the Republican Club, let me know. I will send your request along to Mark Seigel, 1st Vice President, Lakewood Republican Club.
In order to be fair and balanced, there is also a very active Democrat Club in Lakewood Township. If representatives of the Democrat Club are considering a membership drive, let me know and I will be happy to publicize your information.
