Published Friday, February 1, 2019

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.
