The Patriot Club of San Mateo, also referred to as the Young Republicans club, hosted a guest speaker during lunch on Tuesday, March 19: Luis Buhler, head of the Bay Area GOP and bayareagop.com.

Buhler spoke to the club about the foundation of the Republican party and what the future holds for the presently troubled political group. “Currently, the GOP is in a process of self-examination and analysis,” he said. Buhler talked about the importance of young people and what Republican values appeal to them in particular.

“There are four key things that affect young people: (1) education, (2) jobs, (3) preserving the social net, and (4) social security and Medicare,” said Buhler. “California is in trouble; our tax structure is unfriendly to job creation.”

Towards the end of lunch, Buhler transitioned to a discussion period where he asked students to tell him what they think is important for the Republican Party to change in order to succeed in future elections. Students primarily focused on the need for conservatives to ease up on social issues like gay marriage and marijuana.

“These are all being talked about in Sacramento and nationally as Republicans evaluate their party and what they stand for,” responded Buhler.

The presentation was very interesting for students, and Buhler ended lunch by inviting them to call/email him for internship opportunities. If interested, call (916) 801-1715 or email luis@rockledgeassociates.com.
