My personal tale on Keith Hanson

For the record, I have talked to Keith about the problem with the NHGOP in the past. I agree that the problems are systemic and inbred; many of you have heard me say the phrase “Five Families” (you can figure out the reference). My memory goes back to the legitimate election of Jack Kimball as NH …

You know, James, I do have to say “Thank you” for saying what you did from the stage on Saturday.  Really!  There you were, all suited up, looking magnificently upon that lighted stage, with 450 or so Members of the State Committee, Press, and visitors watching your stately oratory.  Your report on the Finance Committee …

Hillary: “What Difference Does It Make??” Former NH GOP Chair Wayne MacDonald: “What difference does it make?”

Actually, in both cases, the answer to both cases is “It DOES make a difference – a tremendous one, in fact.”  And both are in the same area: trust.  Or in fact, creating more a lack of trust than what already exists.  Both questions from the top figures in the organization show a lack of …

Looks like we’re not the only ones demanding NH GOP Chair Wayne MacDonald’s resignation – or ouster

Given what we’ve posted about this topic (here, here, here and here), this from FaceBook Sounds.Just.About.Right.: Cliff Hurst has worked tirelessly for the Republican Party for decades as a citizen-activist, Chairman of the Manchester Republican Committee, and currently serves as Vice-Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee.
