The Building Continues...

The Massachusetts Republican Municipal PAC has a new website and blog to promote the GOP at the municipal level.

Below is an email that they just sent out regarding their online development. Please get involved with this organization.

Dear Fellow Republican and conservative activists,

We write to you today to announce that the Massachusetts Republican Municipal Coalition PAC has created a website: www.massrepublicanmunicipalcoalition.org/

Many of you are probably not aware of this PAC, but we seek to financially assist Republican candidates seeking municipal office and Republican local office holders who run for the state legislature.

We need your help to answer questions such as:

Who will run for state representative in your district in 2010? Who will be your state senator in 2016? Is there a plan for if your state representative resigns?

We are drafting a long-term plan to gain ground in the legislature, to build the farm team, and we need your help.

A great many of our GOP legislators were selectmen, school committee members, and city councilors when they made their first runs for the state legislature. The support bases they built while serving at the local level helped them immensely as they worked their way up.

The Democrats have a wide base of activists dominating local government in our cities and towns. Most of Republican candidates for municipal office have to start from scratch. The Massachusetts Republican Municipal Coalition wants to help local candidates right from the start.

We recognize our town committees and state committee are chartered to help candidates all the way up from the local level to US Senate and Congress. It’s a tall order and broad mission. Our PAC will focus exclusively on our task of building this local farm team.

The MRMC is there to help shepherd candidates through their very first races, to provide training and donations, to help them raise their own money. We will help them to build grassroots support, and to provide additional Republican volunteers when they come up short.

Our goal is to create a steady stream of well-qualified, well-known local Republicans, ready and willing to step up to the legislature when opportunities present themselves. We would like to help our current elected officials identify and groom replacements for when they leave their seats. And we want to target weak incumbents for defeat.

Can you help us?

Can you help us identify the Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals in your local government? Can you help us find candidates for local office? Can you help keep us informed of potential opportunities, such as when there is an open seat on a local board?

Can you assist us financially? Your donation of $25, $50, $100, or $500 will help the congressmen of tomorrow become selectmen today. Click here to donate.

Our ten-year plan starts now, and we hope you can answer our call to be a part of it. Please visit our website, donate, and send us information on YOUR local government today. And spread the word by forwarding this email!

Thank you,

Chanel Prunier
