All political party executive committees in Florida are created by state statutes which provide for the election of one man and one woman from each voting precinct in each county of the state. In precincts where any political party has more than 1,000 voters, there are two men and two women for each precinct. These elected party officials are called “Committeemen” and “Committeewomen,” and together they form the most fundamental grass roots political units in Florida — the county executive committees. The Martin County Republican Executive Committee has members representing precincts throughout our county. However, not all precinct positions are filled. In the case of a vacant precinct, the Committee is empowered to elect new members by majority vote. Interested persons are encouraged to attend our meetings and contact our office for information on membership. Each county executive committee selects a group of officers to meet the day to day administrative needs of the committee. The local officers in each county are the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary, and Treasurer. In Martin County, party officers are elected every two years at the December meeting immediately following the November general election. The current officers will serve until December, 2016. Some of the goals and objectives of the Executive Committee are:

  1. Election to office of qualified persons
  2. Determination of public issues under the accepted democratic processes of the nation
  3. Foster loyalty to the Republican Party
  4. Promote an informed electorate through political education
  5. Increase Republican registration
  6. Seek qualified candidates for local, county, state and federal offices
  7. Promote the election of all Republican candidates in the General Elections
  8. In general to uphold the principles of freedom, equality, and justice on which the Republican Party and the government of this nation is founded, as set forth in the Constitution of the United States and that of the state of Florida.
