Hello Friend,

The Greater Tarpon Springs Democratic Club is hosting a special event for our May gathering. We welcome you to join us for Tampa Bay This Week with Moderator Rob Lorei! Here are the details:

Tampa Bay This Week Panel with Moderator Rob Lorei
Monday, May 21, 2018 at 7:30 PM
Tarpon Springs Recreation Center – Main Hall
400 S Walton Ave, Tarpon Springs, FL 34689


Rob Lorei is the Managing Editor of Florida This Week on WEDU-TV (PBS) and a co-founder of WMNF Radio. He attended Antioch College where he received a BA in Journalism in 1977. During Antioch’s co-op education program he held a variety of jobs including law clerk, video documentary maker, Pepsi truck delivery driver, and staffer for the Miami Valley Black Lung Association which helped disabled coal miners obtain black lung benefits.

He got his start in radio as a news reporter at his campus NPR station, WYSO. Since moving to Florida in 1978 he’s been a panelist on political talk shows on WTOG-TV and WEDU. He took the moderator’s seat of WEDU’s Tampa Bay Week in 2001 and has piloted the program through its 2005 update to Florida This Week. He’s covered West Central Florida politics for more than 20 years and moderated numerous televised political debates including the 2002 Attorney General’s race, the 2003 Tampa Mayoral race, the 2004 U.S. Senate primaries, and the 2006 Gubernatorial Primaries.

He’s interviewed hundreds of authors, academics, politicians, musicians, artists and entertainers for his broadcasts. among his guests: former President Jimmy Carter, Ralph Nader, Ferdie Pacheco, Sen. Mel Martinez, Janet Reno, Daryl Jones, Al Franken, E.J. Dionne, John Dean, Tampa Mayors Dick Greco and Pam Iorio, Gov. Charlie Crist, Bill Moyers, and many others.


Additionally, I want to let you know that after months of multiple attempts, the GTSDC has successfully engaged with local high school students whom will be forming their own High School Young Democrats Club!

If you know of a local high school student or teacher that may be interested in starting a Young Democrats Club at their school, feel free to pass along my information to have them reach out to me and/or send me their information and I’ll make contact.

If you know any high school student needing volunteer hours, please provide my email and phone number as the GTSDC can help them achieve their volunteer hours while being empowered to make a political difference in their community.


Furthermore, the GTSDC Board is nearly ready to issue our voting recommendations on the 13 Constitutional Amendments that will appear on our November ballot.

Recommendations are only being issued upon agreement of 75% of the GTSDC Board. Once the recommendations are finalized, we will create digital and physical cards to share and pass out.


Moreover, the GTSDC PAC is seeking additions! If you want to help serve our Political Action Committee reply to this email with your interest to learn more information.


Finally, check out and save the dates for the upcoming events and meetings listed below. And since you made it this far through this notice, here is a political cartoon for your enjoyment:

I hope to see you Monday evening!
