Clifton Park GOP Committee DEAD. Rebirth deal afoot.
Months after Bob Wilcox destroyed the credibility of The Clifton Park Republican Committee and made it totally irrelevant in town politics there is a move afoot to rebuild the party.
First reported here, the town elected officials have reportedly offered a solution to help this committee work to regain their trust and begin the long road to becoming an important player in town politics.
There are many proposals but they all involve a complete reorganization at the executive committee level. The agreement being offered is that serious discussions can begin after Bob Wilcox, pictured above, Hugh Burke and Linda McNab agree to resign their executive committee posts.
Once that occurs, the town board will work to establish a new committee leadership team and will agree to help the committee regain the success they enjoyed in the previous years.
Sounds like a positive step, we'll report back if the committee members agree to the first steps on the road to recovery.
The other priority "issue" was that anyone who wants to continue with the nasty stealth group named "the coalition" will also have to agree to resign from the town GOP committee.
For the sake of the Republican Committee up there everyone hopes they agree to work with their elected leaders.
