The Montezuma Republican Party is at a crossroads. Due to entrenched members that vote self interest over the good of the Party, Vice Chair Casey McClellan and Secretary Gardner are making a second attempt at removing the Chair, Allen Maez from his position. They tried and failed last August. Both McClellan and Gardner have opposed financial transparency in that they feel receipts for disbursement from accounts are unnecessary. Secretary Gardner has submitted documents without authorization bearing the Chairman’s signature. Vice Chair Casey McClellan has issued proclamations without validity. McClellan and Gardner have announced a special MCRCC meeting February 23, at First National Bank at 6pm. This is restricted to voting members only. However, it is an illegal meeting as the procedure they have implemented violates State GOP By-laws. It is time to stand up.
Support Chairman Allen Maez and give our local Republican Party transparency and integrity, by voting in responsible precinct co-chairs on March 1.
