Republican Women to host Anthony Trimino at luncheon

Ridgecrest Republican Women Federated Alice Campbell – Ridgecrest Republican Women Federated will host a second luncheon meeting this month at Casey’s BarBQue, Tuesday April 26 at 12:00 noon.

Guest speaker Anthony Trimino, a Republican candidate for Governor in the California Primary Election June 7.

Trimino, is CEO of Traffik, which he founded in Los Angeles over 20 years ago, named as one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in America by Inc 5000.

Through his agency, he states in his biography “I get to work with global brands, innovative startups and Fortune 500 companies to create solutions that drive demand and establish deeply meaningful connections between brands and their audiences.” He “has a unique approach to bringing a diverse group of people, ideas and perspectives together to build solutions that address and overcome complex challenges facing California like the cost of living, modernization of the education system, post statewide shutdown recovery of businesses, homelessness crisis, healthcare, water, fire resources in our local communities.”

His grandparents were entrepreneurs who escaped Cuba during Castro’s revolution, moved to Los Angeles, and started their small business. He too “was born with an entrepreneurial spirit and a deep desire to build something from the ground up. He saw that the system was set up to keep minorities dependent on government and didn’t promote independence or self-reliance.

Over the past year while politicians were busy closing business and choking our economy, Anthony was busy creating jobs and providing opportunities. In creating his business, he stated “I know first-hand what it’s like to have sleepless nights worrying about providing for your family.” He states that “with that background of hard work, faith and the entrepreneurial spirit instilled in me by my parents and their parents, I created something better in California for my family and for others.” He considers some of the most meaningful work he has done is with local organizations battling homelessness, providing support and relief for families dealing with childhood illness and advocating for youth trapped in the foster care system. In 2021 Anthony was named “Miracle Maker of the Year”, for his 12-year work with ‘Miracles for Kids’ a charity organization that helps families with critically-ill children fight bankruptcy, homelessness, hunger and depression.

The luncheon is $18 for Members, $20 for non-Members. Please RSVP reservations ASAP to Tonia Pyle (714) 401-4158 or Alice Campbell alicerbob@verizon.net.
