Ellingsen, Welsh Seek State Committee Race — A mild medical issue last week has not caused Donna Ellingsen to quit her bid to represent Republican voters from State Committee Region 2 of Chester County on the Pennsylvania Republican Committee. She and her running mate Tim Welsh have put real fear in the party bosses getting rich off cronyism and corruption and they are going pedal to the metal to stop citizen crusaders. We are republishing this article from April 20.
Complaints are common about cronyism and corruption; about unfair taxes and public spending with no benefit for most.
Most of the time the complainers only vote in major elections if at all.
We aren’t going to judge. The lazy, corrupt, cronyist media likes it like that and fails to report the issues in a way that explains their ultimate consequences.
On May 15, Republican voters in State Committee Region 2 of Chester County will have a chance to give a black eye to cronyism.
Two candidates long-sickened by the how-can-we-milk-the-cow-today attitude of the GOP leadership are in the race.
They are Donna Ellingsen and Tim Welsh.
The 351 state committeepeople are elected every four years during a primary election. They determine who the party endorses in state-wide elections and, more significantly, pick the state party leadership.
Last year, a guy who works for a political fixer and has close ties with the state’s leading D behind Tom Wolf won the state chairmanship . It was by just two votes despite arm twisting and intimidation.
There are rarely challengers to the people put up by the party leaders.
Chesco Region 2 is a exception hence an opportunity.
It consists of Coatesville, South Coatesville, Modena, and Valley from Area 14; Atglen, East Fallowfield, West Fallowfield, Highland, Parkesburg , Sadsbury and West Sadsburgy from Area 15; Elk, East Nottingham , Lower Oxford, Oxford Borough, Upper Oxford and West Nottingham from Area 19; and Caln and West Brandywine.
To help Donna and Tim call 610-932-2242.
