The Alinsky-style tactics of Richard DeNapoli, Rico Petrocelli and their supporters within the Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC) continue to amaze those who are paying close attention to the upcoming BREC elections that are slated for December 3rd

We have previously reported that DeNapoli and others have used the BREC email list to promote Petrocelli’s candidacy while simultaneously denying access to the list to Karen Harrington and her surrogates. (DeNapoli Alinksy-Tactics) While the emails being sent by DeNapoli-  his endorsement of Petrocelli and from Petrocelli himself are not identified as being sent directly by the BREC, they are.

Those of you who have received one of these emails from DeNapoli, Petrocelli, Joe Kaufman and others- scroll down on the email to the very bottom for a moment.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. The email  that is being sent out IS being sent directly from the BREC email account.  DeNapoli and Petrocelli are playing BREC members for fools and believe that you’re too stupid to figure out their unethical and dishonest campaign practices.

Is this the kind of continued leadership that is suited to represent Broward Republicans? Think on that. A vote for Petrocelli is a vote for continuing the corruption and dishonesty that has plagued the BREC.

Richard DeNapoli, ChairmanColleen Stolberg, Vice-ChairEndorse Rico Petrocelli for BREC ChairmanAdd your name to Rico Petrocelli’s Growing List of Endorsements by Clicking Here! As Rico Petrocelli said in his campaign announcement, the Broward GOP works as a team where no one player wins the game by himself or herself.  Well, one of the most valuable players on our Broward Republican Team is Rico Petrocelli.  We fully support his candidacy for Broward Republican Executive Committee (“BREC”) Chair.

 Rico knows what it takes to win elections.  We relied on his experience as a Town Councilman from Plantation and his extensive contacts in the community to assist us in leading the Broward GOP.  Rico knows how to build a team.  Rico has a kind servant’s heart and will make a great leader.  He knows how to energize our volunteers and build consensus around our mission of electing Republicans. After hiring Rico with very little funds in our BREC Treasury two years ago, he immediately dove into his job, helping to build our party by getting donations wherever he could.  It’s difficult to raise funds for a county party — a totally different task than raising funds for a political campaign — but Rico worked tirelessly on both fundraising and the regular business of the Broward GOP. 

Many of our members do not realize what goes into running the Broward GOP.  From setting up our monthly meetings, booking the hotel, coordinating speakers, maintaining our headquarters, making sure various bills are paid, advertising the party events, meeting with candidates, sending out emails, speaking with our almost 400 members on a regular basis … Rico has the skills, talent and experience to keep our party running smoothly from day one. We couldn’t have had our fundraising successes over the last two years without Rico Petrocelli. As your Executive Director:

  • Rico got sponsors for a majority our monthly meetings;
  • Fundraised for our first Lincoln Day Dinner with Governor Rick Scott, RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day and Congressman Allen West, netting $90,000
  • Organize our Grand Old Party BBQ, which attracted over 600 guests
  • Secured over 170 attendees to Presidency V, netting some $30,000 for the Republican Party of Florida and $4,000 for the BREC
  • Fundraised for our second Lincoln Day in May 2012 with Keynote Speaker Attorney General Pam Bondi and Special Guests CFO Jeff Atwater and Congressman Allen West
  • Collected tens of thousands of dollars throughout both years in our regular fundraising appeals

These are only a few of the things that Rico has helped out with behind the scenes.  As your next Chairman, Rico would immediately have the experience and to continue these successes and keep the Broward GOP on the right track.We need to continue our fundraising successes, attract new members, improve our technology and establish an improved GOTV Program.  Obama organizers had been deeply embedded in Broward for years before the 2012 election, focusing their persuasion efforts on person-to-person contact. Our Precinct Letter Project helped our members establish more personal contact with Republicans in their neighborhoods, and we know this will continue with Rico Petrocelli as your next Chairman. We need to start campaigning for 2014 today and we have been preparing for this by examining a new and user-friendly online program.  This will assist Rico in making available for every REC member to organize their precincts and gather voter information in ways like never before.

As your Chair and Vice-Chair, we have worked hard to empower you, our REC members, with precinct lists, Precinct Training Manuals, and other methods and information to help you reach out to the voters.  We hope that you elect Rico Petrocelli as your next Chairman so that he can continue our Eight Point Platform and build upon the progress that we’ve made with his positive energy and enthusiasm.  As your Chair and Vice-Chair, we know that no one can do this job alone.  The strength of our organization lies in its members.  Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our Broward Republican Party, and without you, there would be no Broward Republican Party and no victories in any cycle.  Rico has been there for us, and we hope that you’ll be there for him.  We hope that you will join us in supporting Rico Petrocelli and his team as your next Chair and Board of the Republican Party of Broward County.  CLICK HERE TO ADD YOUR NAME TO RICO PETROCELLI’S GROWING LIST OF SUPPORTERS! All the best, Richard DeNapoli, ChairmanColleen Stolberg, Vice-Chair
