Raiders GM McKenzie Speaks To The Rotary Club of Oakland
– Jun 27, 2012
Oakland Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie made a public appearance at the Rotary Club of Oakland's weekly luncheon meeting last Thursday . He was joined by team Chief Executive Amy Trask.
Trask said, "We were delighted to participate in the Oakland Rotary luncheon. We always enjoy opportunities to interact with Oakland businesses and to support the community."
McKenzie indicated he was proud about coming to the Rotary Club and meeting the members. This granted him with a great opportunity to discuss the development of the Raiders franchise.
The Rotary Club of Oakland has been in the community for over 100 years and “is a diverse service club of over 340 professionals, businesspersons, and other community leaders dedicated to fighting hunger and disease, and promoting health, education and other humanitarian causes in Oakland and around the world,” as stated on their web site.
“It was a great time for me to come out,” said McKenzie. “I just talked to these guys about being out in the community and also a little bit about the Oakland Raiders.”
McKenzie being the new general manager of an up and coming NFL team, shared his feelings about the progress of the Raiders. ”We feel like we’ve made great strides in our personnel department as far as the players on the field,”
McKenzie continued. “We feel good about the outlook of this team as well as this organization. I want to talk to you about our vision. Mr. Davis had a vision to win Super Bowls. He won three. That goal will not change. Winning is everything and we’re going to do everything in our power to get that thing done. We want to bring the trophy back to Oakland.”
He completed his speech to the members by saying “Get on board right now, because we’re going places as a team. So, please continue to root for the Raiders because we will be worth rooting for this year.”
He knows Oakland loves the Raiders and it starts by supporting the community.
