The Republican Liberty Caucus of Florida has traditionally been one of the largest and most active state affiliates of the RLC. The chapter held its biennial Convention over the weekend, which featured State Senate President Mike Haridopolos (pictured below), who also spoke to RLC members at the 2006 National Convention in Orlando. Haridopolos recently announced his intent to run against Senator Bill Nelson for US Senate in 2012.
Some members were skeptical about Haridopolos, who has pledged his efforts to pass a Taxpayer Bill of Rights in Florida in 2011. Ultimately it was an honor to have Senator Haridopolos speak with our members and we appreciate his time and consideration.
The Florida RLC pledged to make passing a TABOR bill its number one priority in the coming two years. The Convention also elected the following Officers to lead the chapter forward:
Matt Nye, Chair
John Stevens, Vice Chair
Chevon Baccus, Secretary
Larry Roberts, Treasurer
Thanks to Philip Blumel and Matt Nye for their efforts in putting the Convention together — and to all those who attended.
