I didn’t know this, did you? Chris Cavey, pondering a state post with the Maryland Republican Party? Now, I don’t know much about Chris, definitely heard good things, but really don’t know the guy. But from what I hear (combined with the super bonus that he’s from right here in Baltimore County), he’s a stand up guy.
I told you guys I was new to this whole political thing, but from what I’ve gathered in the few short months that I’ve been involved, the state party could use some help. It’s bad enough that we’re drowning in a sea of libs, but to have our own party tied to the anchor at the bottom of the sea, dragging us down, that’s just not cool.
Dave made a comment yesterday that from the top down, at least where we live, there is not one single Republican in the chain to support. I did know that by the way. My point was that we need to encourage the ones that are in office, whether or not they reside in the state of Maryland or not. But I agree with him that the grassroots movement is up to us. We have to encourage one another, rally up the troops, do our best to get the truth out there. It is really sad though, as a side note, that there is not one person representing me in DC or Annapolis that is on my side…not one.
If Chris Cavey, Chairman of Baltimore’s County Central Committee, does in fact take over, our job is to support him in however we can. Granted, at this time, he’s still mulling over the idea. Maybe we should be nudging him the right direction.
Bryan Spears reports, “I honestly don’t know right now,” said Cavey, who is also the 1st Vice President for the GOP in Maryland. ”I need some time to think about it. It could be fun. I just have to see.” Well Mr. Cavey, you got my vote (not that I get one) but still.
Oh and maybe when you get there you can look at rethinking how you guys fundraise. It’s great that people like me, who can’t afford to attend events with the big, special people, can still contribute with our time and buckaroos here and there, but it kind of sucks to be bombarded by phone, email and snail mail every five seconds for another five bucks (and still not get to attend the events with the big, special people). Just my two cents.
By the way, love Michael Steele, totally wish we had him instead of Cardin.
