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

We are posting the schedule of meetings for April and May… Please join us. Everyone is welcome! The meetings will begin at 6:00 PM at the Sons of Italy Lodge, 202 Wanser Ave Inwood… AND DINNER WILL BE SERVED. Let’s all get involved in our community together, and let’s make it better.

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.

Jack Martins’ Fundraising Gala

On Wednesday, September 6, 2017, the Five Towns Republican Clubs hosted a joint Fundraising Gala for Nassau County Executive Candidate Jack Martins.  The packed room at the Lawrence Country Club was evidence of the overwhelming support and strength behind the Martins Campaign.  Led by Inwood-AB GOP Executive Leader Jim Vilardi, the crowd was introduced to a number of leading Nassau County Republicans, including First Vice Chairman Joseph Cairo, New York State Senator Alfonse D’Amato, and the man of the hour – Nassau County Executive Candidate Jack Martins!

 

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

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.

It’s Time To Get Involved!

Still in our infancy, the reinvented Inwood/North Lawrence/Atlantic Beach Republican Committee – The Inwood-AB GOP – has already made significant strides both locally and politically. However, such efforts would not have come to fruition without the support of our growing membership and from our community.  And we have so much more to accomplish!

With the arrival of summer and Election Day 2017 only a few short months away, NOW is the time to Get Involved! Currently, our committee men and women are in the process of walking their respective Election Districts, collecting signatures in support of our 2017 Republican Candidates. But more help is always needed! Please click here to find out how YOU can get involved in building our committee and strengthening our community! #inwood#northlawrence #atlanticbeach #republican #gop #electionday2017

June 13th Cocktail Reception for Supervisor Santino

On behalf of Co-Chairmen and Executive Leaders Donald X. Clavin, Jr. and James J. Vilardi, the Inwood-AB GOP would like to  thank everyone that attended our special Cocktail Reception in honor of Town of Hempstead Supervisor Anthony J. Santino on Tuesday evening, June 13th!

The intimate, two-hour Cocktail Reception was held at the beautiful Cherry Valley Country Club in Garden City, and it was truly a great success!  With Supervisor Santino’s reelection campaign in full swing, the reception was well-attended, with guests and dignitaries from all over the Town of Hempstead and Nassau County in attendance.  It was a true show of support for the Supervisor’s continued efforts to reduce spending, ease the tax burdens on our residents, and for providing responsible and transparent fiscal management of America’s Largest Township!  And as a special gift, all guests in attendance received from the Supervisor a souvenir pair of custom-made cufflinks designed specifically for the event!

Again, we would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to all those that made the evening a great success!

Executive Leader Donald X. Clavin, Jr., Town of Hempstead Supervisor Anthony J. Santino, and Executive Leader James J. Vilardi.
