Special Announcement from Harry Wilson on his Candidacy for Governor
Friends – as many of you know, I have been exploring a potential run for Governor of New York for the last several months. I had said I would make a decision by this week, and I have: I will not be a candidate for Governor in 2018.
This has been a very difficult decision to make, and I am incredibly grateful for the enormous support and encouragement I have received from so many of you throughout my exploration. Because it has been both difficult and complicated, and because I feel you all deserve a fulsome explanation, I have drafted this long note so I can explain my thinking.
President’s Message for January 2018
By Phil Orenstein
“As the oldest Republican Club in America, it is your duty to carry the torch for the Republican Party and its core principles for the whole nation.” – Lt Col. Allen West
What’s a Republican to do, now that the only news stories that matter today are the Trump-Russia collusion investigation, Mueller’s subpoenas, obstruction of justice claims, Republicans’ war on women and immigrants, the daily barrage of sexual predators, and doom for the Republican Party after Moore’s defeat. The Democrats say they stand on the moral high ground, and Trump and his supporters are the bad guys. In fact, in the run up to the Special Election in Alabama, the devious Democrats quickly threw some of their own predators under the bus, namely Senator Franken and John Conyers, in order to claim the moral high ground. This cunning scheme was carried out to pave the way for Moore’s defeat, and to ultimately go after Trump. Since the Democrats have failed to get Trump impeached over Russia-gate or anything else, they are talking about bad news for Republicans in the 2018 midterms. So, what’s a Republican to do in this vile political climate?
What Kind of NYC Do You Want?
By Joseph Concannon
NYC may be bracing for yet more social unrest with the de Blasio administration stating that they plan on using the “law of eminent domain” to find housing for the homeless. Again, this is government overreach that will have to be addressed by the courts, no doubt. It begs the question what kind of NYC do you want and where are you in line? The answer for this issue and many others lies with you, the voters, and determines your place in line!
