Michigan Republican Chairman to Speak at Eastside Republican's Annual PAC Dinner
John Stempfle, chairman of the Eastside Republican Club political action committee, has announced Republican Party chairman Robert I. Schostak as guest speaker for the P.A.C.’s annual fundraiser to benefit local GOP candidates.
The buffet dinner event begins at 6 p.m., Thursday, April 26, in the Sohar Room at Sindbad’s at the River, 100 St. Clair Street, Detroit 48214.
Stempfle said, "I encourage all local Republicans to join us at Sinbad’s. We’re honored to have our Michigan Republican Party chairman, Bobby Schostak, as the ERC-P.A.C. speaker. Mr. Schostak is a proponent of developing a strong grass roots effort to ensure Republican success in the November General election."
According to Stempfle, proceeds will be used to support local GOP candidates during their 2012 campaigns. Stempfle reports that tickets for the $50 per plate event are still available.
In addition to Stempfle, P.A.C. committee members include Alice Baetz, John Chouinard, Carol Hackleman, Ed Joseph, Jeffrey Neilson, and Linda R. Solterisch. The ERC chair, Jenny Nolan, serves as ex officio member of the group.
Stempfle added, “It’s open to the public, but because seating is limited, reservations are required.” For reservations or more information contact Stempfle at 885-0781, or learn more about the event at the club’s web site, eastside-republican-club.org.
Schostak was elected chairman of the Michigan Republican Party in January 2011. Since his election, Schostak has created a grassroots team committed to electing and re-electing Republican leaders across Michigan.
As chairman, his key initiative has been to broaden and strengthen the Michigan Republican Party. Under his direction, state leaders aggressively have worked with local organizations to improve communication, build lists, recruit volunteers, and provide training for improved grassroots operation.
Previously, Schostak served as finance chairman for Michigan Republicans through the 2010 election cycle. In that role, he raised record funds, resulting in the most successful Republican electoral outcome in decades.
Schostak is a longtime party activist, including roles on campaign fundraising teams for Senator Spencer Abraham, Dick DeVos, and John McCain. He currently serves on the finance committee for the Republican Governors Association.
