Rutherford for Collier County School Board - District 1
The Collier County Republican Executive Committee (CCREC) endorsed Jerry D. Rutherford for District 1 school board at their May 2 meeting at VFW Post 7721 in Naples. The endorsement vote followed a three-month-long evaluation (including questionnaires and interviews) of the three Republican candidates in that race.
“Jerry has earned our support because of his years of experience defending classical and traditional values in our schools as a concerned citizen at school board meetings,” said Collier GOP chairman Frank Schwerin. “He is an entrepreneurial businessman and Air Force veteran who has also served as a substitute teacher. We can count on Jerry to take a firm stand against the leftist indoctrination forced on our children by powerful interests from outside our great state of Florida.”
After his endorsement, Mr. Rutherford issued the following statement: “My sincere thanks to all who voted to endorse me for Collier County School District 1. It is a very humbling experience. I pray that I will live up to the expectations of all who are placing their confidence in my abilities. Having the endorsement of the CCREC as well as Alfie Oakes is truly a blessing.”
The 240 members of the CCREC, who are elected by Republican voters in their respective precincts, represent the 126,000 Republican voters in Collier County with respect to Republican Party matters.
