Gabe speaks Sign Language and Italian, and loves to travel to new destinations, especially those with a quirky language or dialect. As a liberal Republican, Gabe's mission is to bring the national parties together around issues like: human trafficking, homelessness, child poverty, national debt, climate preparedness, gender differences versus expression, and balancing personal, corporate, and civic responsibility. Gabe can usually be found greeting our members at the door, so say hi if you join us for a future event!

Hello, I am wondering if you have any info regarding the LA RNC May Convention being held at the Airport LA Marriott . As the LA RNC is stating that several events speakers, cocktail get togethers are being held. I don’t know about their schedule exactly just what was posted on FB. I want to make a GOOD IMPRESSION AND REPRESENTATION FOR LOGCABIN ORG. PRIMARILY and FOREMOST. To the other convention attendees. But I would be interested in the events being planned for the weekend. And I don’t want to have anything overlap.
If you have any info regarding any convention speakers events etc. Please let me know.
Thank you
Brenda Borst

I’d love to get involved. The “Join Chapter” on the national site isn’t working. The email updates on the national site isn’t working. Your local site here has no contact information screen. Oh and this website sucks. I gladly make you a real one for free. Get in touch with me:
