Alafia May Meeting
The Alafia Republican Club will be holding its next meeting at 6:30 PM on Tuesday, May 13, at River Hills Country Club (3943 New River Hills Parkway, Valrico).
It is our pleasure to welcome Gary Berntsen. Gary is an enthralling speaker who is now the Southeastern Regional Director for Concerned Veterans for America. He is a decorated former CIA officer who served as a CIA Station Chief and led several of CIA’s most important counterterrorism deployments. Gary will give us a behind the scenes look into covert operations within the CIA, discuss his harrowing experiences in Afghanistan as well as describe parallels with our national debt and the collapse he witnessed while stationed in Argentina in 1999.
Please plan to join us for this exciting event. You don't want to miss his important message.
April Alafia Meeting
The focus of our meeting was Hillsborough County Commission races in District 4 (East Hillsborough). We hosted three candidates, Rick Cochran, Janet Dougherty, and Stacy White. We allowed each candidate a total of 20 minutes to speak. Q&A was allowed for each. This was a lively and informative session helpful in deciding who would best serve East Hillsborough on the County Commission.

The focus of our March meeting was Hillsborough School Board races in District 6 (county-wide) and District 4 (East Hillsborough). We are allowing each candidate a total of 10 minutes. In that time they will introduce themselves, and then address the following questions:
