The Frederick County Republican Central Committee is pleased to announce this year's Lincoln Reagan Dinner speaker - Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas. Congressman Gohmert is currently serving his fifth term in the House of Representatives, representing the people living along the eastern border of Texas. During his time in Congress, he has become known for his staunch and bold conservativism. He has repeatedly called for an end to the socialization of our economy and decried the notion that Washington Bureaucrats know better how to spend money than the American taxpayers who earn it. Congressman Gohmert serves on numerous House committees and subcommittees, and was recently named Vice Chair of the Judiciary subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security due to his extensive knowledge stemming from years in the court room. Prior to being elected to Congress, he served as District Judge in Smith County, Texas, and was appointed by Texas Governor Rick Perry to complete a term as Chief Justice of the 12th Court of Appeals.
Congressman Gohmert's blunt manner with the truth has sometimes made him a target of those set on compromising American foundational principles. When questioned about his stark honesty, he simply says: "When somebody is destroying the country that you're sworn to protect and love with your heart, it's time to stand up no matter who gets offended." We trust that attendees at this year's Lincoln-Reagan dinner will both enjoy and be challenged by this dynamic, energetic, and passionate member of the United States Congress.
At this year's Lincoln Reagan dinner, Republicans will join together for an evening of fellowship, a delicious meal, and the opportunity to hear from this engaging speaker who will share his insights, convictions, and experiences, while firing us up to work hard to elect Republicans in this incredibly important and impactful election year. As an additional highlight to your evening, many of Frederick County's fine elected Republican leaders will be in attendance. Join us Monday, May 5nd at 6pm at the Holiday Inn in Frederick for an elegant and patriotic event. To register online for the Lincoln-Reagan dinner, click here.
