Reagan Day in Maine!

Thanks to the great efforts of Mary Adams in the great state of Maine, President Reagan's birthday was celebrated in style (jelly beans included!) at the State House in Augusta. Despite heavy snow, dozens gathered for a press conference to celebrate the life and legacy of one of our nation's greatest presidents. It was truly a wonderful event and we hope several states will emulate this in the future! Thank you Mary for inviting the RRLP to celebrate Reagan Day in Maine!

Below are photos of the event. Check out for additional pictures from the press conference!

Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan!

In honor of President Reagan's birthday, the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project asked that governors in all 50 states enact proclamations declaring February 6th "Reagan Day" in their respective states. Below is a list of governors who enacted proclamations, those who didn't, and a list of stragglers who will hopefully sign their name to a proclamation in coming days!

Attention, New Yorkers!

Assemblymember Finch (R-Springport) and Senator Tom Libous (R-Binghamton) are working hard to ensure that Reagan's legacy lives on in New York. Together, they have sponsored legislation to name a portion of state route 434 in Tioga County "Ronald Reagan Memorial Parkway."

Currently, New York has only 2 dedications to honor President Reagan. These bills may hit the floor as early as Monday. Contact your legislator today and urge passage of S 1655 and A 7163!

Reaganomics 2.0

Today's edition of the Wall Street Journal features an article by Steve Moore in which he discusses the legacy of Reaganomics in America and Europe.

Check out the article here:

Friday, August 24, 2007

On Tuesday, August 21, members of the Harris County, Texas Board of Education voted to name the county education department building after the nation’s 40th president, Ronald Wilson Reagan. The dedication to President Reagan, the first of its kind in Harris County, was championed by new board member Michael Wolfe.

With the board’s 5-2 vote of approval, the main building of the county Department of Education located on Irvington Boulevard will soon bear the name of America’s favorite president.

“Mr. Wolfe’s hard work to honor President Reagan deserves recognition,” said Grover Norquist, chairman of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project, a leading force in preserving Reagan’s legacy. “While Ronald Reagan was a leader in world politics, he also played a great role in the lives of individual Americans. Recognizing his memory on every level is a great honor to his life and legacy.”

In his two terms as president, Reagan worked to rid the threat of communism overseas while boosting the American spirit. Despite the strength of growing communist states and a struggling economy, he pushed forward to succeed in halting the expansion of U.S. government and non-democratic governments abroad.

Texas is already home to 6 dedications, including Ronald Reagan Public Library and High School in San Antonio. The new building dedication in Harris County joins over 95 dedications to the late president in the United States and 9 abroad.

“Ronald Reagan’s legacy should be held up for future generations to value,” continued Norquist. “The Harris County dedication is a great example of taking every opportunity to preserve the ideals and leadership President Reagan brought our country.”
