Did You Know?
CCCV PAC will be sharing information about incumbent candidates and challengers. We are monitoring the issues and values that fit our mission.
What is next?
Be informed, there are 34 offices plus Judiciary open in the 2022 election cycle. We want to ensure we elect people that share our common values to our City & County offices, plus the Judiciary.
Be informed, in 2022 there are three elections we will vote to make changes in favor of the Republican Party. Our 1st opportunity is February 1, 2022, when City residents vote for new Naples City Councilors. Three candidate positions are available. Be informed that the city election is nonpartisan, meaning candidates can’t reveal their political party affiliation. However, we are sharing that information!
Be informed, all Republican voters residing in the city need to vote to replace Raymond Christman. He is a sitting City Councilor that was a registered Democrat until recently when changed to be registered Non-Party Affiliated (not Republican). State election reports show his residence made donations to Democratic candidates running for Governor named Andrew Gillum and running for State Representative in District 105 Javier Estevez. In addition, Ian Rudnick has filed. He was a registered Democrat until December of 2020, when he switched his voter registration to No Party Affiliate.
Be informed, currently, two Republicans have declared to be on the City of Naples ballot: new candidate John Dugan, incumbent Vice Mayor Terry Hutchison. At this point in the process, incumbent Gary Price has not indicated he is considering placing his name on the ballot for re-election.
Our most significant issue is low Republican Voter Turnout.
See Table 2 – 2020 Republican Voter Turnout. It is clear that the last City Council election could have had a better result for the Republican Party. Two Non-Party Affiliated candidates were elected. The final election vote tally showed 3,751 Republican did not vote – 44% of the City Republicans did not vote. By Party, Republicans were the largest no shows on election day by more than 2000 votes!
Later we will focus on the August 23rd Primary and November 2 General elections.
