LCRC: Steve Simpson and Jack Ryan Lacking In Personal Integrity

| | Comments (4) | TrackBacks (0)

Strong words from Loudoun County Republican Committee chair Paul Protic:


These folks are the Republican nominees and endorsees; they've earned the right to carry the GOP banner either through a primary or convention victory, or endorsement and thus, they are not only entitled to, but expect the Republican Party's support. The two independents running were once members of the LCRC and made a pledge to support whoever won their race. At that convention, after losing their races for nominations for Sheriff and Broad Run Supervisor, respectively, Steve Simpson and Jack Ryan publicly conceded defeat offered motions by acclamation affirming their support for the Republican nominees and representing their public withdrawal from the race.


Moreover, both candidates, as required when filing to participate in the Convention race, had signed pledges to support the full slate of Republican candidates chosen by the voters at the convention. These pledges were, in effect, contracts with the Committee and the Convention delegates. Yet less than 24 hours after the convention, Simpson and Ryan broke their pledges and chose to run as Independents.

In this day and age of declining public trust in government, it is especially important that our elected representatives be true to their word. It is time for Mr. Simpson and Mr. Ryan to pull out of their races, renew their pledges to the Republican candidates, and restore their own personal integrity as well as respect the integrity of the party process.


Well said, Mr. Protic.

Now, can we extend these comments to Dale Myers and Snow and Firetti (via e-mails) for not supporting the Republican Sheriff candidate who DID WIN the Convention fair and square?

Dean - were you a convention delegate? Because your opposition to many of the GOP nominees will put you in the same category as the people you are attacking.

Why, yes...I was.
And I support Geary and Ahlemann.
I supported (grudgingly)Firetti until his little performance before the podium of the Loudoun County BOS meeting where he used a podium RESERVED for the people's business to launch an attack against his opposition.
If he wants to get a full page ad, do it. If he wants to hold a press conference, do it. But I and many other residents realized that Firetti doesn't even recognise or respect the sanctity of that room and the purpose for which it was created. On this basis, I immediately supported York (who waited to address Firetti at a later NON-TAXPAYER SUPPORTED venue.)Say what you will, but York is at least smart enough to realize when and where the PROPER place to respond to campaign allegations is.

I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND LOUDOUN COUNTY RESIDENTS ABOUT AN ACT BY SHERIFF SIMPSON RIGHT AFTER HIS RE-ELECTION IN 2003.

YOU SEE SHERIFF SIMPSON DEMOTED SEVERAL OF HIS LONG STANDING DEPUTIES JUST AFTER HIS RE-ELECTION IN 2003. HE HAS STATED THAT IT WAS NOT POLITCALLY MOTIVATED BUT I HAVE TO QUESTION HIS TIMING ON THIS EVENT AND THE MORALE IN THE DEPARTMENT THERE AFTER.

SO FAR I HAVE NOTICED THAT HIS FILING AS AN INDEPENDENT GOES AGAINST HIS VERY OWN WORDS.THIS ACT SHOWS NO HONOR OR INTEGRITY IN MY BOOK.

SO MY QUESTION TO ALL LOUDOUN RESIDENTS,
CAN SHERIFF SIMPSON BE A FAIR AND IMPARTIAL LEADER IF RE-ELECTED. CAN WE EXPECT SHERIFF SIMPSON TO SAY WHAT HE MEANS AND FOLLOW THOUGH OR DO WE RE-ELECT SHERIFF SIMPSON IN HOPES THAT HE'LL STICK TO HIS WORD WITH HONOR AND INTREGITY THAT APPEARS TO ME TO BE MISSING IN THIS CAMPAIGN.
