The Greater Oakland Republican Club (GOGOP) is made up of Constitution-loving citizens of Lake Orion, Oxford, Rochester Hills, Addison Township, Oakland Township, Auburn Hills, Clarkston and surrounding communities who endorse prudent government at the local, state and national levels.
GOGOP seeks to provide political, economic, and intellectual support of our political representatives through networking, awareness, outreach and fundraising.
Our Club usually meets on the second Tuesday of each month at King's Court Castle at Canterbury Village in Lake Orion, Michigan. The meetings run from 7 to 9 p.m. Local experts and State elected officials are often scheduled to discuss important issues of the day.
In addition, we host fundraisers,
a picnic and other special events throughout the year.

Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink...
Can I please have a glass of Flouride, Chlorine, Lead, Mercury, PCBs, Arsenic, Percolate, Dioxins, DDT, HCB, Dacthal, MtBE...said no one ever! But that is what can be found in many drinking water supplies across our country. We all know of the Flint water crisis, but what is in our supply? Could it happen near us? If you are on a well, are you safe? Is the government keeping our water supply safe? Would you know how to test your own water? These are just a few questions we hope to get answered at our April 10 meeting. We have a great panel of water experts and citizens to tell us this story.
Amy Mangus, Deputy Director of SEMCOG will discuss a number of "Lead Bills" finding their way through the Legislature. She has been overseeing the implementation of the Southeast MI Water Resources Plan. Bill Carroll of Addison Twp Residents for Clean Air and Water will discuss the injection wells located in Addison. He has been fighting to keep the proposed injection wells site safe in Addison.
Melissa Golembieski and Katie Yates from the Clinton River Watershed Council will discuss water education and testing. They teach stormwater education programs water testing in our schools and businesses through the CRWCprograms.
And lastly, when we live in a state whose motto is "If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you" and in a community "Where living is a vacation," water is truly the focal point. Here to show why we are discussing water, is Orion Supervisor, Chris Barnett.
Candidates, Legislation and other presentations:
We are discussing SB741 with Ann Marie Rogers. This is a bill that was voted down one day and upvoted the very next day once the speakers were gone. Ann Marie will share her insights on why and how this happened.
Eric Suender will be sharing the Boy Scouts STEMAdventures with us. Its a great opportunity for those who wish to sponsor a table in their midway event to help connect youth with those who are using STEM skills every day.
All members in good standing are invited to attend our Leadership Meetings, held the first Tuesday of the month. This is where we address Club business that does not get discussed at our general monthly meetings. The next Leadership Meeting is Tuesday, May 1 at 7 pm at Al Hassinger's home in Rochester Hills.
The Greater Oakland Republican Club has a monthly show that airs on Orion Neighborhood Television (ONTV) called On the Right Side with GOGOP. We address topics relevant to our community to inform and educate voters in our area. Subscribe to ONTV's YouTube channel to get updates on upcoming editions.
