This month’s Irreverent View lunch will be next Monday, October 24th at 11:45 a.m. at the Tampa Club.
This month’s guest: Our special guest this month is State Senator Mike Bennett http://www.flsenate.gov/senators/s21 who represents portions of Sarasota and Manatee counties. Mike is Senate President Pro Tem and he serves on the Banking and Insurance and Criminal Justice committees – among others. He is a successful small businessman and Navy veteran who served 4 tours in Vietnam. Mike flirted with running for Congress next year but decided the rigors of a campaign and days in Washington were more than he wanted. Mike is a no-nonsense legislator who calls it exactly like he sees it. And when I say exactly like he sees it, I mean he gives the unvarnished truth as he sees it – political correctness be damned. Mike will speak for 10-15 minutes about current issues facing the legislature including improving the economy and legislative redistricting. He will also take a few questions about issues. This is a speaker not to be missed!
Please RSVP by noon Saturday (October 22nd) . As always, feel free to bring a friend. There is plenty of parking (bring your stub to the lunch to get it validated for a discount). We will have a private meeting area for our lunch, just ask for the Irreverent View lunch when you arrive. The address is: 101 East Kennedy Blvd., 42nd Floor of the Bank of America Building. The menu will be fix-priced of $15.00 pp.
About the lunch: The lunch group is informal but we have some loose/suggested criteria. They are: You should either be a card-carrying Republican, professed libertarian, a conservative, or someone who thinks our country is currently going down the toilet because the politicians we elect are mostly a bunch of bums and morons who are more concerned with getting re-elected than they are concerned about the future of the next generation. You can be a liberal Republican, or a conservative Democrat but the rest of us may wonder what is wrong with you if you are one of those; still, you’re welcome anyway.
Please note the following: If in the event you still think Barrack Obama’s idea of change is a good thing; or if you think the occupy Wall Street protestors are a bunch of hard-working, productive, and patriotic Americans; or if you want your kids to grow up to be a trial lawyer; or if you think Social Security is anything but a Ponzi scheme, this group is not going to be right for you. As such, we ask that you please plan on packing a sack lunch and eating at your desk that day.
Meeting date is next Monday (October 24th) at 11:45 a.m.
