    President

    Mimi Planas

     

    Mimi Planas is of Cuban Descent, born and raised in Miami, Florida. Mimi has been involved in local politics both here and in Miami, Florida for over 20 yrs.  She has always been heavily involved in her communities; from helping people with drug addiction to raising funds and supplies for the needy as well as disaster relief.  She ran for Commissioner of Miami Dade County in 2010.  She was then elected in 2012 to Community Council District 10 and was voted in as Vice Chairwoman of the Council shortly thereafter. In 2013 Mimi Planas was also elected to serve as Committeewoman for District 26 for the Republican Executive Committee of Miami. Mimi Planas was also able to get Log Cabin Republicans of Miami off the ground and 2011 and charted in 2012 to present.  She remained President of LCR of Miami for the next 4 years and not only increased its membership significantly but its stature as well.  In 2015 she was appointed by then Governor Rick Scott to the Florida Commission on the Status of Women, where she remained until moving to San Antonio, TX.

    But by far, the most important position she has ever held is being the proud mom of her 14 years old son Aidan!

    I am looking forward to serving the Log Cabin Republicans of San Antonio as President, as well as working with our local party to get great Republican candidates elected.  Let’s Roll!
