Fellow Ohio Republicans,
There is no doubt this is the most important presidential election of our lifetime, but let’s not forget that the elections that most shape our daily lives are not fought at the national level, but rather at the local and state levels. We have a unique opportunity to shape the future of the Republican Party of Ohio and in doing so, shape the future of Ohio.
The Ohio GOP has been languishing under the rule of a cadre of corrupt self-interested political elites. If you are dissatisfied with the direction of the Ohio Republican Party and you care about its future, then you must carefully consider who will best represent our party in Columbus. Is there party infighting? You bet there is. It is a healthy fight for the soul of the Ohio Republican Party, and it is a fight worth having if we are committed to preserving the party of Reagan. Our current state central committee member boasts of her close ties to the state chairman, and together they are committed to strangling our values, undermining the political gains we have made, and masquerading as principled leaders. Perhaps many years ago she was a worthy leader, but now, this incumbent is an absentee GOP county chairwoman, too busy with a cushy political job to do the grunt work required to win local elections such as working at headquarters, organizing volunteers, or working door to door; unwilling to publicly address issues of political importance or debate ideas with her Democrat counterpart; too smitten with Columbus glitterati to follow up with local candidates on election night. This same RINO recently described the principles on which our party was founded as “Conservative crap” to a room full of Republican women. With Republicans like that, who needs Democrats?
Let me offer you, instead, a refreshing, Conservative choice: Leslie Haas for State Central Committee. Leslie has been an active member of the Washington County Republican Party for many years. She has managed the county’s GOP headquarters since 2006 while working phone banks, organizing candidates’ media campaigns, fundraisers and designing political literature. Leslie orchestrated the first TEA Party in Washington County and has been the county coordinator for various local and state campaigns. She is a dedicated mother and wife, community and school volunteer, and a three-term president of the Republican Women’s Club. Leslie Haas recognizes that the party of Reagan was founded on Conservative principles that cannot be abandoned if we are to lead the state with integrity.
On March 6th, I invite you to elect Leslie Haas to represent our district in the Republican Party of Ohio State Central Committee.
