While there will be no General Meetings, Action Teams may conduct separate meetings during the break. Be sure to check with your Action Team leader for details!

And mark you calendars! Our first meeting after the Summer Break will have Tim Abakhin, Regional Election Integrity Director for the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF), conducting a special Poll Watcher training session exclusively for Manatee Patriots.

Reminder: Amanda Ballard Meet and Greet September 21

On November 8, voters in Manatee County have a unique opportunity to create a Board of County Commissioners which is made up entirely of Conservative Republicans.  But to do so it is crucial that we provide our District 2 candidate - Amanda Ballard - with as much support as we can.  So we are asking all Manatee Patriot subscribers to consider attending a Meet and Greet for Amanda on September 21.  If you'd like to attend, please RSVP by clicking on the button below the following invitation.  



Get to Know Our New Manatee County Schools Action Team Leader - Deanna Brinkley


Everyone has a breaking point in which they say enough is enough. I had enough when I saw the inappropriate (Pornographic - whichever word you would like to use) books being found in our Manatee County schools. I then thought, "what else is being injected in our schools?” I continued to dig and found more than I ever expected.


 This became my mission to research, uncover and eradicate it all one by one! Contracts were not renewed, curriculum was removed and relationships were made for a straight pipeline to address issues ASAP. Now is the time for everyone to step up and engage in our schools and community. We have to be on the front lines, not in the back of the bus. I was never in politics and trusted our elected officials local, state and national. This is no longer the case to sit idly on the sidelines. I took a small step and made a huge difference…so can YOU, time is of the essence. 


RPOF Poll Watcher Training Now Every Evening at 6pm Until October 26.

If you can't wait until our next meeting to learn about becoming a Poll Watcher then we have good news for you.  The Republican Party of Florida is now offering Poll Watcher training every evening at 6pm.  You heard it right; training to become a Poll Watcher credentialed by the RPOF is available every evening until October 26.  So even if you can't make our special training session with Tim Abakhin on September 20, you now have no excuse to go through this critical training.  To learn more and register simply click on the graphic below.


Election Integrity Action Team Breaks the 100 Mark!

Last weekend, our Election Integrity Action Team had extended their Get Out The Vote drive to the Florida Gun Show in Palmetto.  With the registrations over the 2-day event, the total number of forms submitted stands at 105!  Now that's called patriotic activism!
