2018 Beach City Republicans Board Members
President, Beach Cities Republicans
Peter Michel is in his first term as the President for the Beach Cities Republicans. I has served as 2nd Vice President the last 2 years and Secretary/Treasurer for the previous 2 years beforehand. I have also been the media liaison for the club managing the social media channels.
Peter is an producer/director who works for a local city franchise authority for a local South Bay City. I am the middle brother of three awesome brothers for the last 45 years and have lived in Palos Verdes for 42 years. I enjoy keeping informed about current events that concern the protection of our rights outlined in the United States Constitution and he enjoys sharing information with others.
I enjoy spending time with my 4-legged friend, Scooby-Doo, who is my Best Friend who supports me as an emotional support dog, walks on the beach, and occasional walks around the neighborhood and parks with Scooby-Doo and his friends, and is active member adult volunteer for the Los Angeles County Cooperative 4-H Extension Program and co-runs one of the largest 4-H youth organization local clubs in California the Palos Verdes Peninsula 4-H Club and is actively involved with his church and community.
Cheryl Wendell was recently the interim 1st Vice-President of the club and has just been elected to her first term full term as the 1st Vice-President for the Beach Cities Republicans.
Tracy J. Hopkins is in her second term as the Secretary/Treasurer for the Beach Cities Republicans. She more actively joined local politics in 2009 when she became aware of her city government's efforts to expand their reach into the lives of residents by passing a local ordinance that seemed unnecessary.
Tracy helped to establish the MOMS Club (Mom's Offering Mom's Support) in the South Bay in the mid 1990s, becoming its first Vice-President and later Co-President. It has since grown to a thriving support group for stay-at-home moms throughout the area. Tracy co-founded and leads the volunteer run Hermosa Beach Neighborhood Watch (HBNW). The group expanded to approximately 100 block captains in the first 3 years. The HBNW is now in its 10th year of serving the community. Tracy worked with the city to establish the Hermosa
Beach Emergency Preparedness Advisory Commission and was appointed by city council as one of the first commissioners and has served two terms of 4 years each.
Tracy is also a specialist on the Emergency Preparedness committee for her church (LDS), covering several cities in the South Bay. She helped to introduce and currently provides training for the 9 step disaster response training program - Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) which has been adopted throughout the South Bay, L.A. and Harbor area. The program helps to connect neighbors and train them how to secure their home and protect
their neighborhood immediately following a disaster.
Tracy is married to her husband Mark, an engineer who works for a local aerospace company. They have been married for 27 years and have lived in Hermosa Beach for 24 years. Tracy is a stay-at-home mom. She enjoys keeping informed about current events that concern the protection of our freedoms outlined in the United States Constitution and she enjoys sharing information with others.
Tracy enjoys walks on the beach, occasional body boarding sessions with her husband, and
is active in her church and community.
