Eve Bazer

I was born and raised in New York City where I was a committed Liberal who subscribed to the New York Times.  Two men were responsible for my gradual shift to the Right:  Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan.  After the 1980 election I never looked back.  Since 1990 I’ve resided in South Florida.  Now retired, I worked for the City of Fort Lauderdale for 21 years in various management positions.  In 2007 I was one of the original members and an active participant of the  Fort Lauderdale Tea Party.  Just after the 2016 election I helped found and was the treasurer of the Judeo-Christian Republican Club of Palm Beach County.  I’m an avid Zionist and supporter of the Zionist Organization of America and joined them on their last three missions to Israel.  Now I’m anxious to help President Trump get re-elected and ensure that we take back the House of Representatives.

Kim Kelter

Ambassador

Kim was born in Franklin Village, Michigan.  She obtained  a post graduate degree from the University of Michigan and taught school in West Bloomfield. She moved to Florida in the mid-80’s and started in the music business with her own band, later becoming a court reporter.  As a court reporter for over 31 years in South Florida, Kim worked on many high profile precedent-setting cases which were on Dateline NBC six times. She is currently co-producer of the local entertainment T.V. show NiteTime Miami, shown late-night showcasing local talent; musicians and comedians.

Kim’s first interest in politics developed while growing up in Detroit when she met a newspaper editor for the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News and learned the media only lets you know what they want you to, telling editors what to withhold from the paper.  The liberal media has only gotten worse with time.   Kim recommit to political activism during the Obama Administration  as the passing of the Obama (Un) Affordable Care Act became a personal nightmare.

Another cause near and dear to her heart is to fight anti-Semitism which she first experienced as a child when she learned that many national and/or Detroit insurance companies would not let a Jewish agency represent them.  The two-man office her grandfather and father started grew into one of the largest privately owned insurance agencies in the country.  The company expanded with offices in various cities to service their clients, creating exclusive coverage’s, not only landing a Time Magazine cover, but Henry Ford, a known anti-Semite, as a client. Her grandfather was known for hiring the handicapped, his big heart, and being a pillar of the community. Kim vowed to never be ashamed of the heritage she was born into.

The passion and competence that President Trump brings to running the government is one of the things that Kim most admires about our Commander in Chief.  She believes that his business mindset and experience fully equip him for the Presidency.  His promises and love for this country and for the well-being for it’s citizens are what brought her on board the Trump Train as he says and does what he says he will do.

In addition to her zest for politics, Kim has organized, worked, and participated in several charities, including a Reebok Stepathon with Don Shula for breast cancer, tennis tournament and dinner in two states for Gilda’s Club, Zumbathon for breast cancer, Kids in Distress all-day street stage event, and Turkey Trot for Parkinson’s. She is a certified group fitness, Zumba instructor, and personal trainer.

Ambassador

Commander M served in the Special forces of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

Commander M states that the reasons he supports President Trump are obvious to any conservative:

  • Trump is wise and inspiring
  • No other American President has ever done for Israel what President Trump has done, specifically, President Trump stated that he was going to move the            American Embassy to Jerusalem and he did it. 
  • President Trump is a man and President of his word. 
  • President Trump is a man who cares deeply for the American people and the values that have made it a great nation.

This time our Country and our lives literally depended on the outcome of this election. I was with Candidate Trump from the moment he came down the escalator. I started meeting some amazing Republican people that were on the same page as me and I joined the Contemporary Federated Woman’s Republican Club of Boca Raton, of which I am now a board member. During the 2018 elections I starting volunteering in the campaign office in Boca Raton, waved signs and participated in many rallies. That brought me to Scott Newmark’s fantastic group in Broward. It has been an extraordinary experience and I am, and always will be, with President Trump. We must keep fighting the good fight. Thank you Scott, I am honored to accept and be an Ambassador for “Americans for Trump”.
