New Blood Needed in State Committee
Letter to the editor from Horace A. C. Mello.
For the past two Republican State Committee meetings the "Registration and Membership" Chairman had no report on membership. In fact he stated, in so many words, that it was impossible to get college students to join the Republican Party.
This is unacceptable, I have been working hard to get college kids to join this party by simply articulating how this party and its principles share the interests of young people with its belief in free enterprise, limited government, and less taxes. This is why we need new blood in the State Committee. This is yet just another example of how unfortunately easy it is to understand that Republican enrollment is hovering around 11% and why people in Massachusetts have one party rule. There needs to be a balance on Beacon Hill and the Republican State Committee is the major outlet where we can make this happen.
However, with apparently no effort being made to increase enrollment, the people of Massachusetts will continue to suffer with new taxes being proposed on candy, cigarettes, and possibly a new gas tax increase by 30 cents. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a strong opposition party to this kind of relentless onslaught of government regulation and taxation?
This is why the Massachusetts Republican Primary on March 6th is so important and that is why I, Horace A.C. Mello Jr., a 23 year old college student and young conservative, am asking for your vote. Please pull a Republican ballot on March 6th and help me bring some sanity back to Beacon Hill by getting serious Republican candidates elected through the Republican State Committee.
Horace A.C. Mello Jr. is a resident of Norton and is running for the Republican State Committee in the Bristol and Norfolk State Senate district. Voting takes place March 6th.
