As I blogged earlier, Baltimore County Republicans are preparing to pick a new chairman after several months of internal strife and discord. In keeping with my efforts to provide tough but constructive love to my fellow partisans, I extend the following offer to anyone that jumps in the chairman’s race.
Every indication is that my blog is fairly well read by members of the county’s Central Committee as well as by members of the political press. These are exactly the audiences a prospective chairman wants to reach.
Therefore, I invite every candidate who runs for chairman to provide me with a 300-word essay outlining why they want to be chairman, their top three priorities/strategies for growing the party, and the reason(s) why they are the best choice. I will post them on my blog, unedited, as I receive them.
I know that some of the candidates who are contemplating a run are holding off making an announcement until current Chairman Tony Campbell makes his resignation official. This offer stands to them, and anyone else who decides to get in prior to that time, until a new chairman is selected.
Each of the candidates whose names have surfaced to date has the potential to be an effective chairman. I look forward to hearing their ideas and sharing them with each of you.
