    Hillsborough County Republican Party Elects New Chair

    Hillsborough County, FL – On December 8th, 2022, The Hillsborough County
    Republican Executive Committee (HCREC) elected its first black Chairman, Dana
    Galen. She has been a Republican since the days of Reagan and upon arriving in the
    Tampa Bay area has actively worked in the Republican Party and grown a conservative
    club to nearly 350 members.

    There were 152 HCREC members present at the monthly meeting. The main order of
    business was the bi-annual election of Board Officers; Chairman, Vice-Chairman,
    Secretary, and Treasurer. Galen created a slate with three other HCREC members and
    campaigned with promises of Building a strong Republican presence in all Hillsborough
    communities, Make Fundraising Great Again, and expand voter drives. Galen won with
    nearly 66% of the vote, Rick Kunz was elected as Vice-Chair, Maggie Lalk was elected
    as Secretary, and Gina D’Angelo was elected Treasurer.

    As a result of a strong showing in the November General elections with Hillsborough
    BOCC returning to a Republican majority and Governor DeSantis’ strong victory, Galen
    is looking forward to building upon those successes and envisions a greater and
    stronger Republican presence in Hillsborough.

    Galen and her slate started in March of this year planning to achieve two goals: winning
    the board positions in December and strategizing on how to increase fundraising and
    show even greater gains in the 2024 elections.

    Galen started from humble beginnings in East St. Louis where as a child she would sing
    in church. Her love of music led her to obtain a degree in music and become a
    professional singer. She also was a para legal for 16 years and has traveled through
    much of the world. Galen’s successes in all of her pursuits through the years give great
    hope of her leadership abilities for the local Republican Party to become a formidable
    political force in Hillsborough.

    Party Leader? Or A Legislator Within The Party?

    Terminology matters and often people use the phrase "party leaders" when referring to their favorite Republicans. Technically this is incorrect. 

    There is a difference between elected officials (legislators) and the Republican party's actual LEADERS, they are not the same. The actual leadership of the Republican party is often unknown to the general population. It's not like these people are hiding. They are just not given the celebrity status that those in D.C. and state capitols are given. If you are reading this, it means you have found the Republican leaders within Hillsborough county.

    The biggest difference between the two is their areas of focus. Legislators are working on bills for their county, state or the nation. There is no real connection from county representatives to state or even nationally.

    The Republican party is a complete organizational structure it starts at the precinct level. Precincts generally comprise of 4-5 neighborhoods. There are a number of people who represent their precinct at the county level. This is called the Republican Executive Committee (REC). Once a month these people get together to conduct official business. The monthly meeting is lead by the leadership that is elected from within the group. This is the most important position in all of politics. These people are the ones who are the closest to the voter and help to elect qualified candidates who represent them.

    From the REC, there are 3 people from each county who meet on a quarterly basis with every other county from the state. This group is called the State Executive Committee (SEC). One is elected by all of the precinct committee men and women, they are the Chairman. The other two are elected by all Republicans from within the county, one is the State Committeeman and the other is the State Committeewoman. The quarterly meetings consist of training to help counties succeed in future elections. There are a number of committees from within this group that focus on a number of different issues from voting to outreach and other pertinent information. 

    from the SEC, there are also 3 people who represent the entire state at the next level you may be familiar with and that is the RNC, the Republican National Committee. There is a State Chairman and a National Committeeman and a National Committeewoman. These people represent the issues that matter most to their respective states on the national stage. 

    There is a clearly identified hierarchy that is established within the party. The number one goal of all of these entities is to elect qualified candidates who will best represent each of our communities. With all of that said, here are the links to the Republican leaders for our county as well as the elected officials who represent us and those running to represent our county in the future.
