This is a day I’ve been waiting a long time for – the first-ever meeting of the Acton Boxborough Young Republicans! This is very significant in a town which managed to embarrass itself by voting for the ethically flawed Martha Coakley over Scott Brown by 58% [ 5371 / 3896].
The majority of voters here are so wantonly progressive they’ll gladly vote you into a poorhouse by raising your property taxes to beautify a decrepit firetrap or a bike trail.
So the first meeting is today after school. I’ll let you know how it goes . .
It went great!!! Sixteen young Republicans / Conservatives were brave enough venture forth and be known for their true beliefs. A few were bold, a few a little quiet, and a few so busy with sports and other commitments they only had time to leave name, rank and serial number before running off. I was pretty blunt with what to expect and half indicated they are ready now for campaign work. It will come soon enough.
Next week they’ll draft their interim charter, and begin electing leaders. These are the young people who want to step up and make a difference, and I salute them, – and the parents who are raising them.
