Former Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey was the keynote speaker at the annual Collier County Lincoln Reagan Celebration at the Naples Hilton.
The event was sponsored by the Collier County Republican Executive Committee in conjunction with all Collier County Republican Clubs, including the Caxambas Republican Club of Marco Island.
Christie also signed copies of his newly released book, “Let Me Finish,” which is currently Number 5 on the New York Times Best Seller list.more»
The Caxambas Republican Club’s first event for 2019 was a “sold-out” affair at the Marco Island Yacht Club. Over 150 members and their guests came to listen to the former 23rd Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner.
Marco resident Ed Adams, an Ohio native and longtime friend of John Boehner, introduced John as “A genuine American who always stayed in touch with his constituencies.”
Since Boehner left office three years ago, he has stayed busy with speaking engagements, has joined several advisory boards, and is writing a book. His book will include the lessons learned along the way, generously sprinkled with “Boehnerisms,” collected by his staff over the years, such as, “It does not cost anything to be nice” and “A leader without followers is simply a man taking a walk.”
John Boehner joined the board of a cannabis advocacy group, something he never dreamed he would do in a million years. During his travels, he has met many folks taking medical cannabis for PTSD and chronic pain with favorable results. He would like to see further research done on cannabis to discover its full potential as a medical drug.more»

Among the choices voters will consider when they head to polls in November, will be the longest list of proposed constitutional amendments in Florida. The twelve (12) constitutional amendments will be the most on the ballot since 1998. Sixty percent of the vote is required to pass a constitutional amendment in Florida.
Many voters state that the language of the amendments are confusing, making it important to review the questions thoroughly beforehand. Know the difference between a “Yes” or “No” vote – sometimes the wording can be misleading. Visit the Collier County Supervisor of Elections website for more information about the November Election and for a sample ballot (colliervotes.com). Explanation of what constitutes a “Yes” vote is for clarification purposes only and does not constitute an endorsement of the amendment.more»
