A Personal Message from Ryan Dean for Allen West Supporters Nationwide

Allen West with Ryan Dean

I am so incredibly impressed by the dedication and spirit of the people I saw and met in St Lucie County at the SOE. Not since September of 2001, walking to and from Ground Zero in NYC, have I seen such patriotism and comradely from Americans for other Americans that they have never met before. I am deeply touched by the outpouring of genuine emotion and support from people all over this country. Although I could not keep up with all of the social media feeds, I know that there was a plethora of support from people who could not physically be there. As it did for me personally during the recovery efforts after 911, the abundance of support from friends present and the social media feeds was uplifting and very much appreciated. So many people contributed in ANY way that they could to do “Something” to help and support each other and Allen West. Allen West has done so much to bring good people together, he has inspired all of us to become engaged, informed and involved. I am so blessed to have had an opportunity to serve with a Great Man and meet so many wonderful people. I will never forget this experience, it has been one of the best life experiences I have ever had. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank Colonel, Congressman, and my friend Allen West. Also, I want to thank each and every one of you for being such good Americans and great Patriots.

God Bless you, God Bless Allen West and God Bless America!

Rep. Allen West Saves Company from Laying Off Workforce – Employee’s Rally for West

(WASHINGTON)—Congressman Allen West (R-FL) will visit Capitol Supply, an office product distributor in Sunrise, Florida on Thursday.  West will meet with the employees and management team of the company that he prevented from closing due to federal government actions.

Capitol Supply performs transactions with federal customers through the General Services Administration (GSA).  As a result of the GSA’s action to suspend contracts with the company, Capitol Supply was within 30 days of  laying off at least half of its workforce.

“Because of the direct action of Representative Allen West, the employees of Capitol Supply were saved,” said Robert Steinman, CEO of Capitol Supply.  “The employees are excited to meet Congressman West and thank him in person for his actions.”

Upon hearing of the company’s problem late last year, Congressman West contacted GSA Administrator Martha Johnson to discuss Capitol Supply’s standing with GSA and what appeared to be a miscommunication between the agency and the small business.  The issue was eventually resolved before Capitol Supply would have been forced to close its doors.

“My role as a Congressman is to be an advocate on behalf of businesses that work with the federal government,” West said.  “I appreciate Capitol Supply acknowledging my efforts, and I am pleased the company will continue to operate in South Florida.”

Steinman says employees plan to have banners and balloons to welcome Congressman West.  Many of the signs will read “Thank You,” and “Job well done, Congressman.”

Capitol Supply has operated in Sunrise, Florida since 1983 and has 41 employees.

Congressman West is a member of the House Small Business Committee.
