Busy June for Caxambas Republican Club

Caxambas Republican Club (CRC) members had a busy June attending candidate forums, meet and greet events and were co-sponsor for a reception for Florida’s First Lady, Mrs. Ann Scott.
It was classic “grassroots campaign” style for Adam Putnam, Florida’s Commissioner of Agriculture, and Candidate for Governor of Florida. CRC members met up with him for coffee at 360 Market in Naples.  He was introduced by Senator Kathleen Passidomo, who has worked with Adam Putnam for eight years and has known him as “a person who understands the State of Florida and knows what’s good for the State.”

Adam Putnam told his guests that “Our victory in November is going to be a team win.  There are no lone victors – it is the House, Senate, Cabinet and Governor – Team Winners.”
For Adam Putnam, the message was clear: “It is Florida First”.  Joining in this message was Governor Scott, who is a candidate for the United States Senate.  Members of the CRC and a small contingency from Marco island were in North Naples at ROW, by Capt. Brien to welcome Governor Rick Scott on one of his first public appearances since he declared his candidacy for the U.S. Senate. Governor Scott echoed Adam Putnam’s message in reminding the audience at ROW that “Florida is the envy of the nation with unemployment under 4%;crime is at a 47 year low; and that he will take this successful business model to Washington as a U.S. Senator.

According to Putnam - Florida just set a new record for tourism for the third year in a row and a thousand new people a day are moving to Florida.” That “Public Safety” is fundamental to Floridians. If people don’t feel safe, people are not going to come to Florida and that Florida’s law enforcement is going to continue to have support from the leadership in the Florida Legislature.”  Both candidates support good public education and support public schools that provide public options for students to succeed.

For Ashley Moody, Candidate for Attorney General, “Keeping Florida Safe”is her top priority as candidate for Top Cop. She is a 5thgeneration Floridian; a former Federal Prosecutor prosecuting violent criminals and drug traffickers; served over 10 years as a Circuit Court Judge and a proud mother and wife to a Federal Law Enforcement Officer.  CRC members attended a luncheon at the Tiburon Golf Club in Naples to listen to Moody’s platform.
A special afternoon reception was held at the Continental in Naples for Florida’s First Lady, Ann Scott. CRC was a co-sponsor for this event. Did you know the Governor and First Lady have been married for 45 years and they have two daughters and have 6 grandsons!  She is an avid reader and shares this passion with Florida students.
