Friends of Steve Barrar is among the organizations kicking in to a group created to crush a Chester County conservative good-government movement.
The group ironically named Oxford Good Government Committee (OGG) was registered March 19 after Chesco GOP Area 19 Chairman Mark Plaugher lost his title the year before to East Nottingham Committeewoman Jane Ladley.
Plaugher is the treasurer of OGG, which is chaired by Michelle McLeod.
Well, OGG ran several candidates, including Ms. McLeod in East Nottingham, in last spring’s primary for municipal offices against candidates of the Area 19 committee and was generally successful.
No problem. That’s the American way.
The problem is the question as to why Barrar’s political campaign fund would back them as did that of Jack London, the presumptive GOP nominee for the 19th District State Senate seat now held by Andy Dinniman.
The Area 19 committee is controlled by people who became involved in politics after Obama revealed himself as a wannabee tyrant shortly after his election. They are concerned about the loss of economic and political freedom — think speech codes — and the spiraling debt, federal and state, being placed on the next generation.
These people are not professional politicians. None of them seek to to get rich from politics — committeeperson is an unpaid job — and they aren’t interested in sounding the trumpet before them or pushing people around. Like Shrek — and George Washington for that matter — they just want to do their job and go home.
London and Barrar, as he does every election, are going to come before these people this year pounding on the stump declaring Consitutionalism and conservatism and how much they need them to fight them big-spending, gun-grabbing, pro-abortion gubmint liberals.
Friends of Jack London gave $250 to OGG while Barrar’s group chipped in $150.
Who else gave? Well funds affiliated with former State Sen. Dominic Pileggi contributed at total of $1,000 but there is no surprise there.
Delco Future Leadership Fund which is chaired by Delaware County Council woman Colleen Morrone — why is Delaware County involved? — gave $500.
Committee for Excellence in Public Education, for which we unable to find a listing on Pa Voter Services, gave $500.
A whole lot of effort seems to be being made by those who get nice livings from government to chase away those who actually believe the stuff they were taught in school regarding citizenship.
Hey Jack, you ever read “To Build a Fire“? Unlike the tale’s protagonist, the group to which you have donated might have succeeded.
And Jack, regarding any support you expect from the party bosses? Just beware.
