It is time for Central Committee members to step up. Instead of listening to central committee members whining and bitching about the location of the headquarters from West Street, why not require them to open up their wallets?
A few months ago an idea was floated about charging all the state central committee members $25. That would generate about $7500.00 if all 300 members gave $25 to the party. Mr. Chairman, this is a good idea, not a great idea.
A better idea would be charge $100 per central committee member. This would bring an extra $30,000 to the state party every year. $25 doesn’t even fill up half a tank of gas. On a good night it is hardly a good tip at the Bluestone or at the Blue Lagoon. If a college student can spend $100 on a Friday night, then why can’t each Republican Central Committee members afford as much over the course of a year? Isn’t the Republican Party worth as much as a night at Bentley’s?
Actually, an even better idea would be charge each county central committee $250 for each of their members. That would garner $75,000 per year for the party. If we started this year we’d have $225,000 by 2014 which we could use in defeating Democrats. But I know we can only take one step at a time.
I really wish that Chairman Mooney would stop listening to the tired has-beens in the party. Being a Republican star twenty years ago is not helping us today. If Executive Board members oppose you, all it takes is a vote of the state Central Committee to remove them. If some local party tries to oppose you revoke them and put in place a new county chairman who is on the same page. These losers have blocked progress in the MD GOP for far too long.
Alex, you were elected with the largest margin in recent history, the people want action, not the stodgy losing ideas of the past. Ignore everyone who opposes you, we all know you know better than the losers who want you to do what they want. They are afraid you will be successful in turning the MDGOP around.
