President's Message

This is an extraordinary time and we must all be ready to assist in supporting our Republican representatives in local, state, and national office. We still are involved in registering Republican voters, conversation with people one on one who are on the fence or with different ideas, encouraging people to participate in activities relating to our elected officials. Stay informed, involved. Contact your elected officials with your ideas pro and con on what they are doing. With a Republican in the White House since January 2017 we have the opportunity to keep our country at its highest level of Freedom and Liberty. If conservatism is defined as the holding of political views and values with opposition to changes and innovation, it is not completely correct. Conservative ideas do include innovation, but perhaps as a slower pace. If one defines conservatism as the holding of political views that favor free enterprise, private ownership, and socially conservative ideas, this seems to include more of what we consider conservatives stand for.

The recent 3 day conference “Toward a Conservative of Connection – Reclaiming the American Project”.held at Pepperdine University School of Public Policy and organized by School of Public Policy Dean Pete Peterson and Rich Tafel, co-founder of the American Project presented numerous speakers and panels on various topics relating to conservative ideas. Excellent as it was to see the audience of various ages and backgrounds, the ideas and principle need to be presented to high school and college students where young people are forming their ideas for the future. These young people will be establishing their own families in a few years. High school and college years are not too soon to give them opportunities to learn to be able to stand by their ideas.

The Young Americas Foundation High school Conferences held in Santa Barbara do just that. In June 200 students from over 30 states attended for 4 days and were treated to excellent speakers including Andrew F. Puzder, recently retired CEO of CKE Restaurants, started with one hot dog stand by Carl Karcher, and now over 3,000 restaurants. We still sponsor students’ attendance at the YAF Conferences so please contact me with prospective students. Many of our members continue to do excellent things. Natasha Trenev, co-founder with her husband Yordan Trenev of probiotic products company Natren, Inc., are noteworthy for their recent expansion of 5,000 square feet production plant in Westlake Village. Their products are used around the globe. Natasha is certainly worthy of the ‘Humanitarian Beacon of Light Award’ awarded to her in December 2017. Dr. Sigrid Weidenweber’s columns on history, current events etc. with a definite conservative aspect can be read at the e-newspaper Citizens Journal- archived under her name. Do you have a special idea or view you want to express.

Citizens Journal are looking for guest journalists. We are all engrossed in the political news. Let us keep our eye on Assembly 44 campaign and help Ronda Baldwin-Kennedy win. This year’s race for governor is now down to one Republican candidate so we must do what we can do support John Cox. Our state is in great need for a new Secretary of State and Mark Meuser will fit the bill very well. Voting lists need to be reviewed. Poll watchers during the June election who found discrepancies and questions at the polling stations. Volunteer to work a poll or be a watcher. Soon we will all be voting by mail with only a few places to bring a ballot. Judge Steven Bailey for Attorney General is greatly needed in Sacramento. Follow their campaigns. Have talking points ready to tell people on the fence.
