PBC State Committeewoman Cindy Tindell Won’t Seek Re-Election
After almost twelve years as the Republican State Committeewoman for Palm Beach County, Cindy Tindell has decided not to seek reelection. Tindell announced her decision at the Republican Party of Palm Beach County Executive Committee meeting last week.
I managed Tindell’s first campaign for State Committeewoman in 2012, which she won, and she’s a personal friend of mine.
Over many years, we’ve discussed not only how to do the best job possible in electing Republicans, different policies, and issues but also how long is an appropriate time for anyone to stay in office, especially an office that’s a volunteer position.
Cindy is an extremely competent woman who has done a remarkable job, but even more impressive is that she’s leaving after twelve years in office to give a new activist a chance to move up.
I’m proud of Cindy for the work she’s done and happy I was able to play a role in getting her elected.
It has been my sincere honor and privilege to have served as Palm Beach County’s Republican State Committeewoman since 2012. In this role, I have represented you, our county Republican activists, on the Republican Party of Florida, actively drawing from my abilities and skills. As a member of the RPOF, I was elected by my peers to serve on the Executive Board in 2014. Three RPOF Chairman appointed me to serve as the state party’s Budget Chair, overseeing the management of our finances. In our local county party, I have served as a precinct committeewoman and PBC Board of Directors member. I am proud of my record of supporting numerous local, state, and national candidates and personally raising and contributing tens of thousands of dollars to help them win. Upon reflection, I have decided that it is time to pass the mantle to a new activist and, therefore, will not seek re-election to my position as State Committeewoman this year.
I remain your patriot,
“I have known Cindy a long time, and she’s always been a class act. What she says she will do, she does. And she has always been a Good-of-the-Order ally.
~John R. Smith, Chairman, BizPac
Cindy has been a loyal Republican leader for many years. I was privileged to serve with her on the Board of Directors during my tenure as vice chair and throughout my nine-year term as chairman. She demonstrated love for the party and worked tirelessly for our candidates, giving her time, effort, and financial resources. I am grateful for her friendship and the personal support she has always given me.
~Michael Barnett, Palm Beach County Commissioner District 3, Former Chair, Republican Party of Palm Beach County, 2014-2023
Cindy showed up in 2008, and our REC immediately knew we had something special. Harvard Alum, FPL Exec, Alaskan, attractive; we were all in. Four years later, she was our State Committeewoman. IMO, her best moment was her quote to the Palm Beach Post while the crowds waited for Candidate Trump at the hotel entrance: “HE’S ELVIS!” He was, and he is. Thanks, Cindy, for all the effort, commitment, checks, leadership, and friendship.
~Sid Dinerstein, Republican Party Chair of PBC from 2002-2012
Cindy Tindell has been a tireless advocate for Republican candidates. Her leadership has been remarkable. There’s no doubt that no matter what she chooses to do next, she will continue to be an asset to the party.
~Florida Rep. Mike Caruso. R-West Palm Beach
I have worked with Cindy on the Republican Party of Florida for many years. Cindy is a loyal Republican, a good conservative, and sharp as a tack. Her work on the budget committee and audit committee has been nothing short of spectacular.
~Peter Feaman, Florida Republican National Committeeman
The country needs more people like Cindy Tindell in the political system who are willing to give their time, talent, energy, and money to try and make things better with no thought of reward other than the heartfelt thanks of the people they serve.
Thank you, Cindy.
