Election Day 2018 Fundraising Drive


In this critical election with so much at stake for our local communities, we must work hard to support all Republican candidates including Missy Miller, Fran Becker, & all of our judicial candidates.

The Inwood North Lawrence, Atlantic Beach Republican Committee is extremely involved in helping all members of the community and building a grass roots Republican organization. We don’t spend a lot of time on fundraising and try our best not to ask for donations except when absolutely necessary. This is one of those times. Unfortunately political campaigns are very costly, and in order to effectively get our message out from now until election day we need to raise $10,000. This “Election Day Fund Raising” drive will enable us to assist all Republican candidates in the most effective way possible. Please do me a favor and be as generous as you can to help make this fundraising effort a huge success.

Please Click Here to make a donation online, and please don’t forget to vote!!

As always, I thank you for your continued loyalty and support.


Golf Outing 2018

On Monday, June 18th, 2018, the Inwood-AB GOP hosted it’s Annual Golf Outing at the Woodmere Country Club.  It was a beautiful day for golf, as we had 20 foursomes of golfers participate in the event, followed by a packed room for our dinner in the evening!  Receiver of Taxes Don Clavin got the golf outing started, and Chairman Joseph Cairo was a special guest of ours at the dinner!

Thank you to everyone that participated in and supported the 2018 Inwood-AB GOP Golf Outing today!

2018 Inwood-AB GOP Golf Outing

On Monday June 18th, the Inwood -A.B. GOP is hosting our annual golf outing at The Woodmere Country Club. This promises to be a great day of golf, followed by a BBQ dinner with friends throughout the community.

We priced this event very affordably because raising funds is only half the goal… bringing people together and re-building the fabric of the Republican Party is absolutely the key to future success!

I look forward to seeing you on June 18th.

Warm regards.. Jim

Spring Gathering @ Beginnings in Atlantic Beach on Monday,

The Inwood-AB GOP kicked off this year’s political season on Monday, March 26th as we hosted our first fundraiser of 2018, our Spring Gathering, at Beginnings of Atlantic Beach.  With a turnout of nearly 100 guests, including dignitaries, business owners, community leaders, residents and loyal committee men and women, the event was an overwhelming success.  If the energy in the room is indicative of things to come, then the strength of the Republican Party in 2018 and beyond will be a force to be reckoned with.

Many thanks to the staff at Beginnings for the spectacular food and impeccable service!  And as always, a huge Thank You to all our sponsors and committee members — without all your help, events such as these could not take place.

Photos from the event can be found below.

James Vilardi is the Nassau Herald’s Person of the Year

A year ago, our club began a restructuring process that began with Mr. Vilardi being named our new Executive Leader. For those of us that already knew Jim, we were confident that this announcement meant good things were only a matter of time; that he’d be in the trenches with us day and night, doing whatever he could to rebuild the club and the community. Being named the Nassau Herald’s Person of the Year is a true testament to the soul of a humble man, whose word is his bond, and whose dedication and efforts in helping the community and the residents is unparalled.

Helping to ensure the success of local businesses

Many of times, the efforts put forward by the Inwood Republican Committee transcend just local politics. Beyond electing qualified and dedicated Republican candidates to all levels of government, our main goals are to improve the quality of life for our residents and help to ensure the success of our local businesses.

This was evident most recently with Inwood-AB GOP Executive Leader James J. Vilardi’s efforts in assisting Marty Rosen, owner of the Five Towns Mini Golf & Batting Range.  We thank Mr. Rosen for the kind words, and we’re looking forward to building on these efforts and successes even further going forward.

An Angel at Sanitary District 1

The Elder Family of Woodmere with Commissioner Vilardi
Newsday’s Article by Celeste Hadrick










In a turn of events that can best be described as finding “the proverbial needle in a haystack”, our very own Sanitary District #1 Commissioner Jim Vilardi did just that.  Commissioner Vilardi, along with crew members from the Five Towns’ sanitation district and The Elder Family, searched through thousands of pounds of garbage to recover a priceless heirloom – a diamond-studded wedding band belonging to Woodmere resident Jodi Elder.  The irreplaceable ring, which was accidentally thrown out with the family’s recycling, was a gift from her husband on their 15th wedding anniversary.  To read more about this truly amazing story, please click here.
