Join The Movement!
Republicans? In Brooklyn, New York?
You bet. Even in what seems to be a county saturated with Democrats, there are thousands of Republicans ready to step up and be counted to defend principles like fiscal conservatism, lower taxes, limited government, a strong national defense and traditional family values.
Today we found ourselves in troubling times. Government at every level is out of control, taxing and spending us into the abyss. To make matters worse, government officials have become increasingly corrupt and have lost their way - they've lost the faith of the people.
Now more than ever, Brooklyn needs Republicans. And Young Republicans must lead the way.
The movement has taken off since we started in 2010. Brooklyn Republicans went to the polls to re-elect Nicole Malliotakis into the State Assembly, to return Senator Marty Golden to the Senate to join the Republican majority in Albany, and to re-elect Michael Grimm to Congress to vote with Republican majority in the House of Representatives. We also shocked the world when we helped Congressman Bob Turner become the first Republican official to hold his seat in over 80 years. Then we helped elect fellow YR David Storobin to the NY State Senate. We also stood by other Republican candidates in numbers not seen in over a decade, voting up and down the line for a return to those values that have never failed our nation - Republican values.
But the movement is far from over.
It's time to heed the call of our county, our city, our state and our nation. It's time to mobilize. It's time to hit the streets and to stand proudly as the front line of the Republican movement here in the County of Kings.
And it's starts with you.
Join our movement. Meet other like-minded Republicans like you who want to make a difference, make friends and have fun while we change the face of the world around us.
