BREAKING: Walker asked Collins for Resignation
I’ve just receive text of an email sent on Sunday night by AA GOP Vice-Chairman Jerry Walker to Central Committee Chairman Mike Collins (crossposted):
The Anne Arundel County Republican State Central Committee is in need of a change to active and effective leadership. We need positive leadership that will move our Committee and our Party forward. While I appreciate your service as Chairman of our Party for the last several months, I believe that the time has come for a change in leadership for our Anne Arundel County Republican Central Committee.
I respectfully ask that you submit your letter of resignation as Chairman of our County Republican Central Committee prior to our September 5 meeting so that we can allow a new leader to be elected Chairman and lead our Committee and Party forward.
This resignation is in the best interest of everyone, including our Committee, Clubs, activists, elected officials, and our Party. Recent public events have damaged all of these interests and a public removal by a 2/3 majority at our next meeting would only further damage everyone’s common interest…the future of the Republican Party in Anne Arundel County.
