In a world of double digit unemployment in New York, there is a job opening for an immediate start with unlimited growth opportunities.
When you take a look at the final totals of the November 8th elections, the one takeaway any and all voters must be honest about is that those who decide who runs for office, pays for these campaigns and writes the headlines in the newspapers are not focusing on the most important part of voting, the voter!
We understand you can’t win every seat or win on every issue in every election. However, during a time of cashless bail reform, recession alerts, international warfare, expensive and ineffective education and depression and mental issues top issues for all Americans, there should have been a red tsunami sealed six months ago with 70 senate and 300 congressional seats nationally. The Empire State should have led the wave.
New York lost way more than statewide seats. They lost the opportunity to remain the most important city in the country. New York, especially the five boroughs and surrounding counties will lose more residents, more tax dollars and more business. People will be leaving in record numbers because safety does matter. Governor Hochul told Republicans to leave and go to Florida.
Republicans didn’t have a wave, we barely had redness from a pussy sore. We are scratching ourselves with pain from it. How can we control it before this disease becomes incurable if it hasn’t already?
No Statewide Leadership
New York State Republican Chair Nick Langworthy carved a congressional seat for his personal victory. Before he was a candidate, he had time to build relationships, fundraise and build collaborations for a united Republican team. He didn’t. Granted, he did inherit a failing state party and forced many to register as independents or not vote. However, in his years as leader, he did nothing to unite New York republicans or encourage enthusiasm among potential new activists. Instead, he ignored signs of extremists and potential hate. Donors had no reason to support the party and grassroot movements grew against him.
Langworthy had three worthy candidates run an unnecessary and expensive primary for governor. A true leader would have sat them down, worked out a unified ticket with all three running on statewide campaigns and coordinated responsibilities among county chairs and committee members to combine fundraising, and events. It would have saved eleven million dollars and bad press.
He has county leaders who don't lead, don’t find viable candidates and don’t relate to voters. They lose races, turn off voters and actually help Democrats.
A true leader holds chairs accountable for viable candidates in every open seat. A viable candidate doesn’t let people run time and time again and lose. Losing and having no candidate should never be an option.
He promoted an endorsement he received from President Trump, but refused to allow other candidates to mention Trump’s name at the state convention or at campaign events.
Politics Is A Business
If you hear a doctor has a pattern of deaths among patients, do you get a second and third opinion? Do you use a lawyer who loses cases for clients? How long will a salesman keep a job if he doesn’t sell the merchandise? It’s time to fire our state leaders!
Why do we accept the state and county leadership’s choices for candidates as gold? Why do we continue to fund their programs and products? Why do we trust the pollsters they pay for when they mislead us on Election Day results? They lead us in false hope and use us to build their egos.
We need a state leader. We need new county leaderships and new committee members.
It’s Not Just New York
This complaint is nationwide. Republican leadership doesn’t connect with its voters. Chairs don’t communicate with national groups, PACs and political strategists.
If Republicans plan on winning, they need to look at every candidate, every election and every issue seriously.
Republicans can win when leadership takes their job seriously and get their hands dirty 24/7. Chairman Joe Cairo’s success in 2021 and 2022 local, state and national elections is proof.
State and County Chair positions shouldn’t be charity, shouldn’t be looked upon as ways to get your family jobs at the Board of Elections. They are full time jobs that need experienced successful business leaders that understand profit, in this case winning elections.
