Time for Change in the MA-GOP

January 8, 2013 in Kieth Ablow for MA Senate, MA, MassGOP, Rick Green for MA-GOP Chair

Over the last several years the hierarchy of the MA-GOP believed that in order to win political races in the state they needed to move to the Left and ignore long standing Republican platform principles. As a consequence of those changes the last two GOP Chairs and their Executive leadership team have failed in its mission to elect Republicans to  State-wide  and Federal offices.  They have also failed to provide cohesive leadership throughout the state as and financial support. It is now  time to bring in fresh leadership and return to the principles embodied in the National Republican Platform which are derived from our founding documents. To this  end we ask that you consider electing Rick Green as MA-GOP Chair and Dr. Kieh Ablow for John Kerry’s Senate seat.

The MA-GOP Chair election will occur on Thursday January 31 at 7:00 PM  at the Crowne Plaza, 1360 Worcester Street, Natick. Your role is crucial to assuring that these changes are effected.   Your calls to the MA- GOP Committeeman and Committeewoman that you elected, on behalf of  Rick and Keith will go a long way towards  insuring  that a new and transparent leadership team will  mount the attack against the Democrat Political machine in MA.

Kieth would be a formidable candidate but has stated that he would not run if either Scott Brown or Bill Weld run for the Senate seat. You will  need to encourage both of them to bow out, thus allowing Kieth to run!
