MEET THE TEAM
Below is a listing of current RPOSC Officers and their positions.
As Acting Chairman of the Republican Party of Sarasota County, Jack Brill has overseen tremendous accomplishments for the Party, helping make it a model for other Florida county parties. As Chairman, Jack intends to keep expanding Sarasota County's voter registration margin over Democrats and sweeping local races. He also wants to look to the future and engage more young voters in the Republican Party.
Jack, 61, has been involved in politics since he was 17 and living in Rochester, N.Y., staying active through college and when he moved to Longboat Key in 2001. Jack was vice chairman of the Sarasota County GOP for three years; its finance chairman for four years and president of the Sarasota Republican Club for three years and the Young Republican Club before that.
Jack is married to Antoinette and they have two grown children.
Electing Republicans. Standing up for Freedom. Inspiring Action. As the RPOF Region 11 Regional Field Director, Alice Rothbauer knocked on the doors of over 11,000 voters in the 2022 election cycle. Recruiting and training one of the largest field teams in the state, her team was part of Florida and Sarasota County’s historic Republican victories. In addition, she volunteered her time for the Republican Party of Sarasota County, as the co-chair of both the Membership Committee and Precinct Committee as well as the Election Day coordinator for the NOVA (Nokomis Osprey Venice Area) Republican Club.
An activist since the early nineties, Alice was a pro-life crisis pregnancy volunteer and treasurer for The Pregnancy Helpline in Madison, WI for 5 years. As her family grew older, she devoted her time to being a work-from-home mom. Married to her husband for over 30 years, they have raised three grown children and welcomed two grandchildren. In 2017, Nokomis became their forever home and the catalyst of the 2020 election, and Covid lockdowns inspired Alice to re-engage in political activism.
Her goal as Vice Chair is to elect a Republican to the White House in 2024. Her plan is to build on the success of the REC grassroots movement of 2022 by gaining a Vote By Mail ballot advantage and increasing our Republican voter registration margin.
Since joining the REC in 2018, Neil Rainford has developed extensive experience in the local GOP and in government offices both in an appointed position and in winning office countywide. He served as Co-Chair of the REC’s Membership Committee during a time of exponential growth, before being elected to serve as Secretary in 2020 and again in 2022. Neil was elected to the Sarasota County Charter Review Board in 2018 before being appointed by the Sarasota County Commission to the Sarasota Planning Commission, where he currently serves as Vice Chair.
Neil’s goal on the REC executive team has been and continues to be to win every race by mobilizing voters to get our candidates victoriously over the finish line.
In his professional career, Neil is a Senior Project Executive for one of Sarasota Counties largest manufacturers. Neil is married to his wife of 11 years and has one son.
Electing Republicans takes hard work. Growing up in East Tennessee in a blue-dog Democrat county, Atticus watched his parents fight to help build their local GOP. He knocked on thousands of doors, ran booths and sign-up tables, and waved signs for his mom and the local GOP. He is excited to serve the Sarasota County Republican Party and build on the organization's track-record of success.
Atticus has been in the financial industry for 10 years, primarily in business valuation. He has worked with hundreds of businesses and is a vice president with a national valuation and financial advisory firm. He also served as CFO for his family business and ran a business unit of the company. He’s a CFA charterholder, has an Accreditation in Business Valuation (ABV) through the AICPA, and is a member of a half-dozen professional organizations in the region.
Atticus met his wife, Rachel, in Tennessee. They reside in Venice and they have three children. Rachel is a native Venetian and serves her hometown on the Venice City Council.
