BE ONE IN A MILLION: DONATE to Dr.Marion Thorpe for US Congress -FL CD20 Defeat Alcee Hastings

Be One In A Million Money Bomb! He Needs Support!

Dr. Thorpe was born in North Carolina to wonderful parents who were career educators at the college level. They instilled in him the important values of faith in God, hard work, education, family, responsibility, caring for your neighbors and fulfilling your dreams with integrity. Those fundamental values have shaped his character and his career and formed the basis for his lifelong commitment as a strong conservative. They taught him that America is the greatest country and to look for opportunities not excuses.

After working hard and successfully completing honors classes in high school, Dr Thorpe was widely recruited as a star basketball player by over 100 major colleges and eventually chose Duke University after receiving a phone call from Duke president Terry Sanford, a former US Senator. 

Early during his college years, Dr. Thorpe lost his father to cancer, his grandmother, his dog, and several other family members within a three month period. Mentored by Coach K, he made an important decision then to commit himself even more to excellence in his pre-med studies and he graduated with a 3.5 GPA and a BS in Psycholgy and Biology.

Dr. Thorpe received his MD and a Master’s Degree in Public Health from the U of North Carolina. He completed his internship in internal medicine and psychiatry at Tulane Medical Center. Instead of clinical medicine, he decided to focus on healthcare administration and reform and his career has been marked with great achievements in this field.

In 2004, Gov Jeb Bush asked Dr Thorpe to serve as Secretary of Florida’s Agency for Healthcare Administration and then in 2005 he was appointed Florida’s Chief Medical Officer for AHCA. Dr. Thorpe has also served as Chair of Health Care IT Committee of Broward County Medical Association and Dr Thorpe was elected Chair of the Medicaid Reform Advocates Coalition, an organization composed of 99% democrats.

Dr Thorpe also developed a master plan for Public-Private-Partnerships between Hospitals & Community that is widely recognized as creative and highly cost-effective.

One congressman ( Allen West )gets starring role at Chamber of Commerce event in Washington

Via article from the Sun Sentinel  By Anthony Man

On Monday, the schedule includes a “fireside chat” chat with U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation. On Wednesday, breakfast is followed by a “welcome” from West. On Thursday the trip ends with closing remarks from – you guessed it – West.

From the published schedule of the Washington, D.C., “fly in,” during which 75 members of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce will spend part of four days learning and lobbying in the capital West seems like a constant presence.

Not mentioned the four Democrats who represent part of Broward, including U.S. Reps. Alcee Hastings, D-Miramar, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, whose districts – like West’s – include lots of the city of Fort Lauderdale. (Also not mentioned, for that matter, is U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, whose district takes in part of southwest Broward.)

J.W. Arnold, a member of the Chamber’s Washington fly-in steering committee, said West’s had “been very helpful in facilitating our arrangements.”

He said he expected participation – at least in an evening reception – from U.S. Reps. Frederica Wilson, D-Miami, and Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, both of whom represent parts of Broward. Wasserman Schultz’ office is trying to arrange time, he said.

Congressional delegation honors Delray Beach on its 100th birthday 10/6/11 – Rep Allen West

by Anthony MannSun Sentinel

U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Miramar, introduced a resolution commemorating Delray Beach on its 100th anniversary.

It was cosponsored by U.S. Reps. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, and Allen West, R-Plantation.

“I pay tribute today to the city of Delray Beach on the occasion of its centennial celebration. For 100 years, the city of Delray Beach has symbolized the American spirit: looking ahead in times of prosperity; enduring in times of difficulty; and always rising to meet the challenges that have at times weighed on our countries history.

“From its modest beginnings as an agricultural area in 1894, Delray Beach quickly grew, attracting many visitors in the winter months. On October 9, 1911, with a population of nearly 300, the area of Delray was chartered by the State of Florida as an incorporated town. Industrial plants for the canning of pineapples and tomatoes were built, bringing in new residents and ushering in an era of prosperity. By 1920, Delray’s population had reached over 1000 residents. Today, it is estimated that more than 65,000 people call the city of Delray Beach home.
