The group called the Junto Society put together this local Constitution Convention. And managed to get together some excellent speakers I quite enjoyed. From what I know this is the first time such a thing has been done in our town.
I like to get to these events early where I can talk to the people for a extended amount of time at the booths.
The Boy Scouts were doing a little practicing before the Convention started.
Im pretty sure these were the people from the Junto Society that brought this day altogether.
Tico Perez was the host for the days event. He has a Orlando talk radio show called Talking With Tico. And has a very long history of being a active citizen in Orlando.
Former Marine Sgt. Felix Quintan is the founder of Change It Back and a immigrant from Venezuela.

George LeMieux gave a very nice surprise for me at least on how good of a speaker he is. Just had no idea of his talent in this area and the Constitution. I dont even remember him using notes throughout his speech. Hope to hear more from him in the future. And myself will be paying a little more attention when he hear his name.
Here is a little more information on the man. A link to many of his speeches. http://www.youtube.com/user/senlemieuxdotgov?feature=results_main
This man knows his Constitution. Highly recommend you give his website a look.
Jason Hoyt is quite the patriot activist.
Sandy Adams a HUGE supporter of 2nd Amendment rights. The women who grilled Eric Holder on Fast and Furious.

All in all a event I enjoyed and hope the Junto Society does more of them.
