For John, BLUF: Notwithstanding your belief that the GOP is a waste of time, we are the opposition and it is our duty to oppose.
The Massachusetts Republican Party is seeking a new Chairman. A number of names have been bandied about. Here is one review of the situation, although the reporter (or editor) is discredited in the lede:
The Massachusetts Repulican Party has never been as big or popular as the [C]ommonwealth's Democratic Party, but as it prepares to elect a new leader, the task ahead is daunting as everLook at Commonwealth Senators from the Civil War on. A lot of Republicans.
I believe the consensus of the Lowell Republican City Committee is that our State Committeeman, Rick Green, is the person the Committeemembers should pick. (Ms Susan Slade is our district's Committeewoman—we get one of each.)
Per Ms Sandi Martinez, a GOP Committeewoman for Chelmsfor, there will be a debate amongst perspective candidates this Thursday, 17 January, in Lexington.
- The time is 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm.
- The location is 1 Cranberry Hill, Lexington, MA
- There will be a Meet and Greet from 6 to 6:45 pm.
Dick Hersum, founder and Chairman of the Board of AMRC will speak briefly and introduce the candidates. Then, Citizens for Limited Taxation's Chip Faulkner will moderate the first part of the debate.
As I mentioned the Lowell Republican City Committee has a consensus for Mr Rick Green. Former Lowell Republican City Committee Activist Rob Eno is also supporting Mr Green.
