The Los Alamitos/Seal Beach Rotary Club is a service organization that brings people together who want to make a difference. Joining our club is a great way to give back to those in need and to meet new people in our community. The Club meets every Tuesday at noon at Griffins Grill, and you are invited to join us and learn more.
At a recent Rotary meeting, new member Los Alamitos City Manager Bret Plumlee gave a short presentation about how he came to work for the City of Los Alamitos. Mr. Plumlee has 33 years of city government experience and has worked for seven different cities. This is his fourth year in Los Alamitos, and he commented, “This is a great community, a happy place to be, and I just love it.”
He was raised in Orange County, golfs when he can, and is an avid Angels, Chargers, and Clippers fan. His favorite activity is spending time with his two daughters, Katie and Emily, who attend schools in Los Alamitos Unified School District. We love having the City represented in our Rotary Club.
Our guest speaker was one of our members, Joe Partise. Mr. Partise is the owner of Joe Partise, CLU & Associates, an independent Life and Health Insurance Agency. As a Board Member of the Orange County Association of Health Underwriters, he traveled to Washington DC last month to meet with legislators to discuss the Repeal and Replacement of the Affordable Care Act.
Coincidentally, the evening before his presentation, the Republican party introduced the American Health Care Act. While in its very early stages, Mr. Partise was able to share many of the basic precepts of the American Health Care Act with Rotary members. This was timely, interesting, and important information for all of us.
