Amania Saluste

Secretary

Amania Saluste was born from humble beginnings in Haiti. The family moved to the Turks and Caicos Islands and later migrated to America and settled in New Jersey in pursuit of a better life. Amania grew to love the American way of life, where she learned that anything was attainable if you believed it, had confidence in your abilities and worked hard. She pursued a career in Real Estate to help others achieve the American dream of home ownership. To further her formal education, in 2010 Amania earned her Degree in Urban Studies Public Policy at St Peters University in Jersey City, New Jersey.
In 2016, Amania relocated to the great state of Florida. Amania chose to go through the legal process of becoming a United States citizen so she could proudly pledge her allegiance to the United States of America. As a Christian, she was drawn towards the Christian-principles this country was founded upon – the same principles which led to American exceptionalism that fosters opportunity, diversity, freedoms and personal responsibility.

Amania volunteered with the Trump Campaign and the Vennia Francois for US Congress Campaign for the 2020 Elections

Joseph Melendez

Treasurer

Born on September 29, 1992 to a family that consists of three generations of ministers Joseph Melendez has understood the importance of defending our Constitutional freedoms and liberties. Joseph Melendez has been an outspoken critic of Planned Parenthood. I strongly believe life begins at conception that is why I have declared myself to be a fighter for the unborn child. Joseph’s upbringing has also led him to fight for religious freedom, and the right to self-defense declared in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

These traits have led him to become an Intern for the Ron DeSantis for Governor Campaign, Intern Coordinator for the Ron DeSantis for Governor Campaign, Operations Coordinator for the Governor DeSantis Inaugural Committee, and most recently being a Field Organizer for the President Trump 2020 Campaign. Finally, Joseph Melendez’s financial experience stems from his time working for the Environmental Health division of the Orange County Health Department. Where Joseph served as a Senior Clerk collecting payments from clients and providing these same clients permits for their businesses to be able to function.

I plan to serve as Treasurer for Florida Republican Assembly to the best of my abilities and look forward to working with members in pursuit of making our organization GREAT!
