As covered in a previous post, MCRC Leadership was more than a little miffed when some of their endorsed state committee candidates showed up on the Republican Club ticket. Below is an email from Executive Director Jim Saring addressed to all endorsed State Committee candidates regardng the arrival of the first Republican Club mailing piece:
So what do they think of the endorsement proces? Well, apparently not much out in the Republican Committee of Lower Merion and Narberth. Here is the newsletter sent out by Chairman Liz Havey via email under the subject line “Voter Fraud Alert!” yesterday:
Missing from the list of endorsed candidates on this official communication is the name of Gil Cox. Gil Cox was endorsed for State Committee by a quorum of the Montgomery County Republican Committee at an endorsement convention held on February 1, 2018.
Chuck Wilson, the last name on that list, was not endorsed at the MCRC Endorsement meeting.
But Gil Cox also sinned against the Leadership of MCRC by simply appearing on the Republican Club ballot in addition to MCRC’s endorsed ballot (and presumably refused to pay the $1,000 sin tax levied by Chairman Bill Donnely).
So here are my questions to the few remaining committee members who voted at the February 1 endorsement meeting:
- Were you asked by any official of MCRC whether you wanted to rescind your endorsement of Gil Cox?
- Are you ok with Gil Cox’s name being removed from a list of endorsed candidates on an official communication from the Republican Committee of Lower Merion and Narberth (“RCLMN”)?
- If you are ok with that, are you ok with his name being arbitrarily replaced with that of Chuck Wilson?
I can only assume the Committee people reading this cast their endorsement votes in good faith.
So I am wondering:
How does it feel to not only have YOUR endorsement vote summarily cancelled by a few elite individuals running your party…
…but to also have that endorsement vote simply transferred to an individual you did NOT support?
It really IS nice to know what some people—especially MCRC Leadership—think about the endorsement process.
Vote wisely tomorow. Here’s how:
