From the Republican Party of San Diego…
THIS IS AN URGENT MESSAGE. PLEASE READ THIS IN ITS ENTIRETY!
County Supervisor Ron Roberts is attacking our Party and its ability to participate in the political process by making direct contributions to its endorsed county candidates.
From what I’ve been able to gather, both Greg Cox and Dianne Jacob are IN SUPPORT of this infringement on the Free Speech rights of political parties.
We expect this from Democrats, but this thrust is coming from fellow Republicans, one that we helped and endorsed last year, and two who are up for re-election in 2016!
I never thought I would have to write an email like this.
The proposal will drive money in politics underground and benefit public employee labor unions at the expense of broad based, transparent, and democratically elected political parties. And it’s being pushed by Republicans!?
You should know that we were never consulted nor given a heads-up. This just showed up with little notice. This is a rush job and a cynical play no doubt orchestrated by Tom Shepard to weaken our Party.
Vice Chairman Ron Nehring wrote a great OpEd about this earlier today on the FlashReport. PLEASE READ IT:
The hearing is TOMORROW, TUESDAY MORNING AT 9 AM AT THE COUNTY BUILDING DOWNTOWN (1600 PACIFIC HIGHWAY.) CAN YOU BE THERE BY 8:30 AM?
You don’t have to speak if you don’t want to. Just being there will make a difference. Please let me know ASAP if you can come!
If you cannot make it would you please call them FIRST THING IN THE MORNING or EMAIL THEM RIGHT NOW and tell them to table this ill advised proposal?

Thanks. We’ve worked too hard to advance Republican ideals to have our fellow Republican County Supervisors undermine us.

PS. Instead of thoroughly studying the issue, involving the affected parties, they are rushing this through AND TRYING TO CHANGE THE RULES WHILE THE 2016 CAMPAIGN IS ALREADY UNDERWAY. This is no way to run government and we should expect more from our Republican elected officials!
