Mission Statement

Our mission is to recruit, screen, select, and support candidates for county, state, and federal public office. We will do this by increasing the number of registered Republican voters and educating the electorate regarding our commitment to smaller government, lower taxes, and more personal freedom.

Suwannee Republicans meet the 1st Thursday Each Month @ the Live Oak City Hall at 101 White St. Live Oak, Florida  7:00 PM

Chairman Message

Since we revitalized our local party in January 2009, we have been very successful, not only in growing the Suwannee GOP and flipping the county to a RED COUNTY; but, we have made our presence known in the North Central Florida region ever since. Our REC has managed to change the face of the political process in Federal, State, and Local Government.

The 2020 Election Cycle is quickly approaching and as all true conservatives have come to realize the Republican Party and its platform are the last hope in preserving the Liberty and Freedoms of the great nation.

Although we have had much success in the last 10 years, nothing is guaranteed. It is just as important today, as it was in 2009 to continue the “fight” with the same passion and dedication each and every day as if it was our last chance in protecting our freedom…because it very well could be just that.

Please check out our website, read the platforms of the active political parties and then get involved!

Contact us as soon as you can if you want to be part of the power of the Red Wave!

Sherri Ortega – Chairman
Suwannee County Republican Executive Committee

GOP Principles

I Believe… The proper function of government is to do for the people those things that have to be done but cannot be done, or cannot be done as well, by individuals, and that the most effective government is government closest to the people.
I Believe… Good government is based upon the individual and that each person’s ability, dignity, freedom, and responsibility must be honored and recognized.
I Believe… The free enterprise and the encouragement of individual initiative and incentive have given this nation an economic system second to none.
I Believe… Sound money management should be our goal.
I Believe… In equal right, equal justice and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, age, sex or national origin.
I Believe… We must retain those principles of the past worth retaining, yet always be receptive to new ideas with an outlook broad enough to accommodate thoughtful change and varying points of view.
I Believe… That Americans value and should preserve their feeling of national strength and pride, and at the same time share with people everywhere a desire for peace and freedom and the extension of human rights throughout the world.
I Believe… The Republican Party is the best vehicle for translating these ideals into positive and successful principles of government.
