I am so tired of people complaining about everything that is going on and yes there is a lot to complain about. It is almost unbearable listening to what is coming out of our current White House and the Administration. But, as I said, I am tired of all the complaining. It is time to step up to the plate. You are not happy with the Republican Party, you want things to change, you wish we had different, better candidates?
Surely, you are aware that the Republican Party structure starts with Committemen/women (in St.Louis County) and Precinct Chairman in most other counties across the state. These are the people that are the grassroots of the party. These are the people that control the philosophy and direction of the state and national parties, i.e. Republican, Democrat, Libertarian and Constitution. And about 40-50% of these positions across the state remain open. In St.Louis County we have 28 Townships and I have been watching the attendance of the Committee people at their monthly meetings over some time period. There are several Townships where no representative ever shows up. This is no way to have good representation in the party structure.
So, here’s the deal. The filing period for Committeemen/women or Precinct Chairman across the State of Missouri is from February 28 – March 27, 2012. Any registered voter can file for the position. The election takes place with the State Primary Election on August 7, 2012.
Hope to see lots of people at the Board of Election.
