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!

Bio to Follow


Social Media Director

Randolph Macias

My name is Randolph Macias. I moved to San Antonio in 1987. I am a veteran of United States Army 4th Infantry Division 1/68th Armor Regiment. My duty station was Fort Carson, Colorado. I graduated from Churchill High School. I attended San Antonio College.

What got me involved with the Republican Party, was the announcement of Donald J. Trump as a presidential candidate in latter part of June 2015. I realized that all the virtues that I live by were in line with basic Republican principles. This is why I detest identity politics so much, because certain ethnicities believe that they were born to be liberal or Democrat, and this is simply not true. As a result of this, I got involved at the local level to get Republican candidates elected to office in partisan, and nonpartisan races. I am dedicated and steadfast in my resolve to ensure that ALL Republican candidates get the support they deserve.

I am honored to serve in The Log Cabin Republicans of San Antonio. Let's make San Antonio great again!
