California’s NRC representative is guest speaker
The Leisure World GOP Club has invited Shawn Steel, Republican National Committeeman (NRC) from California to its Tuesday, July 15, meeting in Clubhouse 4 at 7 p.m.
Mr. Steel has been a member of the RNC since 2008 and is past chairman of the California Republican party.
The National Committeeman is a volunteer position. The position was first filled by Cornelius Cole, the CRP’s first chairman, in 1856 when the Republican Party was organized in California. Each state has three members, as do the six U.S. territories. The primary purpose of the RNC is to nominate and elect presidents.
Mr. Steel’s Republican activism dates back to his teenage days. He served as high school state chairman for Ronald Reagan when he first ran for governor. Thereafter, he was elected as Chairman of California Young Americans for Freedom.
Since then, Mr. Steel has served in various positions within the Republican Party- from grassroots volunteer to California Republican Party Treasurer to Secretary of the Lincoln clubs to CRP Chairman.
Born and raised in California, Mr. Steel attended Los Angeles-area public schools and earned his BA at CSU Northridge and a master’s in history from the University of Southern California. He later earned his Juris Doctorate.
He is published in numerous professional journals, newspapers and books, including the National Review, San Francisco Chronicle, San Diego Union, Los Angeles Daily Journal, California Policy Review, the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Daily News, Daily Breeze, Washington Times, Orange County Register, Weekly Standard and Wall Street Journal.
Steel’s wife, Michelle Park Steel, was elected in 2006 as a Member of the Board of Equalization, a California constitutional office, representing over 8.5 million Californians in a district that encompasses most of Southern California.
He has two daughters that live in Washington, D.C. Cheyenne is the press secretary for Senator David Vetter, and Siobhan works at Edelman Financial Services.
