Andrew Brett

Ambassador
President Broward Log Cabin Republicans

Andrew was born into Politics! His grandfather Dr. George J Brett, a Republican, ran for Governor of Pennsylvania in the early ‘60s and his Uncle was County Commissioner (’76-82.), though a Democrat!! But then he “walked away” in the 90’s and became a Republican BEFORE today’s #move away movement!!!

 Andrew’s first involvement within the Republican Party was in 1978 supporting and grass campaigning for Dick Thornburg, the only 2 term Pennsylvanian Republican Governor to date. I then followed this by working the largest Pennsylvania Congressional Districts east of the Mississippi with victories in 1984/86/88!!

While attending Penn State, Andrew formed the College Republicans of Penn State in 1984.

Living in Madison, Wisconsin (’95-‘00), Andrew was co-founder and President  of Action Wisconsin, a bi-partisan action GLBT PAC. As a conservative voice along with other Log Cabin Republicans in Wisconsin, Andrew worked across the isle with MANY Democrats most notably then State Rep. Tammy Baldwin (d-Madison) now US Senator… in supporting equality for the GLBT community.  Andrew testified as one of a hand full of  Republicans before the Wisconsin House Subcommittee supporting Gay Marriage in 1998.

Moving to south Florida in 2000, Andrew  continued to be a conservative voice within the GLBT community. During President Trump’s campaign, Andrew worked tirelessly within that community with a lot of resistance and negativity that didn’t phase Andrew’s determination in talking about the President’s message and the huge failures of the previous 8 years .

Andrew’s core conservative values support: pro- life, a strong national defense, our veterans, less taxes and government  and equality for ALL.

During  the 2018 Mid Term elections , Andrew worked diligently to elect Governor Ron DeSantis.

Andrew’s unwavering support of President Trump and his agenda is why he’s one of our valued ambassadors and currently Vice President of Log Cabin Republicans of Broward County.

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.

Nancy Emerick

Ambassador

I was born in Michigan into a Republican household. I belonged to the Republican Club in High School and graduated from Michigan Start University.  But, back then politics did not play a role in the classroom, the professors were not promoting Socialism.  I moved to Florida and did not get involved in politics until Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump started their campaigns. 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”.

Other

I played in the movie named “SEAT OF JUSTICE” as an Iranian reporter and in “CIRCLE” as a widow of an assassinated victim. I was a human rights political activist gathering information as well as informing the public regarding the political and regime-related acts that were involving the prisoners of Iran. I worked as a newscaster for two years. I have been a member of the SAG-AFTRA One Union since 2009. I have worked closely with amnesty International. I have worked closely with the United Nation (UNHCR) in Turkey and helped to resettle dozens of Iranian refugees.

I have met or contacted with many influential people such as President George W. Bush, Mr. Javier Solana, Kenneth Timmerman (writer and journalist), Michael Leddin (writer and journalist), Randy L. Nobel (human Rights activist), Mr. Drewery Dyke (Amnesty International), Richard Pearl, Jimmy Delshad (Mayor of Beverly Hills), John Mirish (Mayor), William W. Brien (Mayor), and many more for obtaining support for my people.

As a woman in Iran, it was very difficult to gain access to certain people and government agencies, but my persistence always made me successful.

Nivia Lucero

Ambassador
Chair American Latinos for Trump

Born in Connecticut in a family predominantly of Democrats, I was taught to believe they cared for, were devoted to righting wrongs, and were people who helped the Community.  But alas, THOSE WERE the Democrats of “Yesteryear”. I’m not sure when they ceased to exist, early enough I witnessed many biases I strongly rejected. I am an “Independent” thinker and always seek facts. The time arrived, I voted based solely on the CHARACTER of men and women, no matter their party affiliation. Fast forward to the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, I “Walked Away”. Jumping in ferociously as a new Republican, I volunteered and became a Poll Assigner in Palm Beach County. Having the pleasure of working with some amazing Republicans of all walks, working in the War room with great Lawyers and the Judge, participating in the process during this past election was extraordinary to say the very least. I firmly believe in President Trump since the day I read his book at age 25. He’s a man of great character regardless what the Democrats wants One to believe. I stand by him. He loves the USA as I do, ALL its people, and strives to Keep us safe and prosperous.
