The Alachua County Republican Party
The 15th Annual Ronald Reagan Black Tie and Blue Jeans BBQ
Thursday, November 9, 2017
Join Judge Jeanine Pirro of Fox’s Justice with Judge Jeanine at the 2017 Ronald Reagan Black Tie and Blue Jeans BBQ!
The Ronald Reagan Black Tie and Blue Jeans BBQ is an annual event put on by the Alachua County Republican Party. This year marks the 15th Edition of this great event, that is becoming legendary in Florida.
It isn’t really a “Black Tie” event. Black Tie and Blue Jeans is really just a way of saying, “wear your good pair of blue jeans.”

She won a daytime Emmy for her daily syndicated court show Justice with Judge Jeanine.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to recruit, screen, select, and support candidates for county, state, and federal public office.
We must educate the electorate regarding our commitment to smaller government, lower taxes, and more personal freedom.
We win elections by increasing the number of registered Republican voters in Alachua County.
We will continue to deliver on conservative promises of reducing the size of government while making people’s lives better.
We must retain the ability to be persuasive with, or welcoming to, those who do not agree with us on every issue.
We must remove obstacles for the middle class and people who are flat on their back, unemployed or disabled and in need of help.
Do You Have Any Questions?
Compassionate conservatism works in the best interests for those struggling in America. The more we become dependent on the federal government, the more we frustrate our individual liberties. Instead of the Democrat-style of compassion shown through government handouts we must create an environment that inspires communities and individuals to take advantage of opportunities to improve their condition. Individuals have the power to change, and government can help them lead better lives. Here are some questions you may have as you consider joining us to Make America Great Again.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE OR VOLUNTEER?
Volunteering for the Republican Party is one of the easiest and most valuable ways that you can help your party. Becoming a volunteer will allow you to make connections in the Republican Party, utilize your talents and improve the Grand Old Party.
Decide what you would like to do as a volunteer. There are many options including making phone calls, going door-to-door, volunteering on election days, helping at a campaign headquarters, helping register people to vote, volunteering at events and much more.
Fill out the nationwide volunteer form on GOP.com. A party official will check on you to learn how you would like to help, what teams you would like to participate in and what issues are important to you.
Contact the Alachua County Republican Party about how to volunteer locally.
Recruit others to volunteer with you. If you are going to volunteer at a Republican Party event, ask your friends and family if any of them would like to volunteer as well.
Write or call your elected officials to let them know about your personal views as a member of the Republican Party. This is a good way to help.
Support Republican candidates. You can volunteer to help with their campaign, place bumper stickers on your car and even place display signs in your yard. Be sure to show up to vote as well.
And of course, if you can donate, we count on the generous contributions of our supporters to help us fight back against the attacks of our opponents and get our message straight to the American people.
Contribute now and together, we WILL Make America Great Again!
HOW CAN I LEARN ABOUT THE CANDIDATES WHO NEED SUPPORT?
We are developing a section on this website to provide detailed information for all of our Republican candidates. They each depend on your support!
HOW DO DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS DIFFER?
The traditional, right-leaning Republican Party opposes the liberal, left-leaning Democratic Party on economic, social and political matters:
Republicans believe in strong border controls, in tax cuts to support job creation and the middle class, in the use of firearms and in the death penalty. They are against abortion, same-sex marriages and support private health care systems; and
Democrats support open immigration policies, believe that rich people should pay higher taxes, advocate for more regulations in the use of firearms and oppose the death penalty. They are in favor of free choice, support same-sex marriage and believe that the government should freely intervene in economic and social matters, including health care.
