T.J. Zane Promoted to President & CEO of The Lincoln Club
Promotion reflects success of Club’s initiatives and growing regional influence
(San Diego) – Veteran political professional T.J. Zane has been promoted to President and CEO of The Lincoln Club of San Diego County. Zane was originally hired by the Club in December 2006 as Executive Director.
Tom Sudberry, chairman of the Lincoln Club Board of Directors, said Zane’s outstanding leadership of one the largest Lincoln Clubs in California and his success advancing the Club’s vision and mission earned him this recognition by the board.
“T.J. has proven his abilities and delivered on the strategic objectives of our organization," said Sudberry. "He’s far exceeded his exceptional track record as a political strategist and has been a powerful contributor to our growth and effectiveness. We could not be more fortunate to have T.J. on board at a time when the Club’s objectives are so critically important to the continued prosperity of San Diego’s business community.
Founded in 1983, The Lincoln Club of San Diego County is one of the largest Lincoln Clubs in California. With approximately 270 members, the sheer size, complexity, and effectiveness of the club exceed that of many political organizations with much larger annual budgets and smaller membership rosters.
The Lincoln Club of San Diego County’s mission is to advance free market principles and ideas by recruiting, endorsing, and financing business-friendly candidates and ballot measures that reflect its commitment to responsible public policy, the expansion of economic opportunity, and an enhanced quality of life throughout San Diego County.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue promoting the ideals of The Lincoln Club and its members,” said Zane. “I look forward to working with our dedicated board and membership to deliver on our goal of a county where taxes are low, government is small and accountable, children receive a world-class education, regulations are reasonable and business is encouraged. With the challenges we currently face in San Diego County, I believe there’s never been a better time to focus on seeing this vision realized.”
