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 first 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.

The GOGOP Leadership Committee has voted to change the dates of our 2018 general membership meetings. We will meet the second Tuesday of each month instead of the first. Leadership meetings will be held the first Tuesday. We hope not to inconvenience our regular attendees with this change but hope it will open an opportunity for others who have not been able to make our meetings.
Topic: Asset Forfeiture
You wake up one morning, cops are at your door with a search warrant. You've done nothing wrong, so you allow them in. Next thing you know, they are taking your things. You go to court, win your case, and now you have to sue to get your items back.
Think this can't happen to you? Guess again. It has happened to one of us. Come hear Neal Porter's story at our meeting next Tuesday, March 13th at 7 pm at King's Court Castle at Canterbury Village. Listen to the tales of asset forfeitures gone awry, and hear about the remedies.
We will hear from Evan Carter from the Mackinaw Center who has written numerous articles on this topic, and John Shea, a defense attorney, who is assisting Rep Pete Lucido in his cause to end the abuse. Like all things, there is another side to this story. This can be a very useful tool in the fight against drugs. It helps fund many departments across the state to the tune of roughly $20Million per calendar year. It helps to keep the taxpayer costs down for keeping drugs, human trafficking, and other illegal activities out of our communities. The line between constitutional and unconstitutional could be debated for years. Will Rep Lucido's bills close the debate?
We have Judicial News on the agenda as well. Michigan Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Clement and Appellate Court Judge Jonathon Tukel will drop in to share info from their prospective courts.
Our members in good standing will vote for open Board positions. Come early and enjoy a meal and mingling.
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, February 6 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 will address topics relevant to our community to inform and educate voters in our area. Our inaugural edition was produced in January 2018. Watch it here and stay tuned for future episodes! You can subscribe to ONTV's YouTube channel to get updates on upcoming editions.
Guest: Congressman Mike Bishop
