Mike May Comes Out Big

By Greg L | 28 November 2006 | PWCRC, Prince William County | 2 Comments

At the PWCRC meeting tonight, the Tom Davis campaign machine showed up with Mike May for Supervisor signs, lapel stickers and literature, making a big splash while the other expected candidate John Gray simply showed up. His campaign literature lists endorsements by Tom Davis, Corey Stewart and Michele McQuigg, and generally mirrors the platform of Corey Stewart. Mike will make an official announcement on Thursday at 1PM at Chinn Library. I have to admit I was very impressed by the organization and apparent momentum of Mike May, and at this point he seems like the favorite.

I had a chance to talk with John Gray, and while he assures me he is running but didn’t need to create a splash at a PWCRC meeting where he was unlikely to have a lot of support anyways. John doesn’t appear to have any active campaign organization, seems to have written off the committee members, and doesn’t have much time to play catch-up.

Tonight the PWCRC approved a call for a convention to nominate a candidate for Occoquan Supervisor to be held on December 16th, and the delegate pre-filing deadline will be December 11th. That leaves precious little time for John Gray to get a campaign organization moving that will be competitive with the Tom Davis/Corey Stewart team. Given how this has played out and Mike May’s apparent advantages, it may be worthwhile for John Gray to decline to file for the convention as it’s very unlikely he can become competitive. I know it’ll be hard for John Gray to be a loyal footsoldier indefinitely, but his contribution to the Corey Stewart campaign has not gone unnoticed and his continued dedication will be a strong positive for future opportunities.

It’s worth noting also that the filing fee for candidates for the Republican convention is $250, while the Democrats are demanding $2,000 from their candidates, which is $500 more than they set as a filing fee for the Chairman’s race last summer. Am I the only one who sees this as an attempt by Democrats to restrict the ability of potential candidates to compete for a nomination, while the Republicans are the ones acting as the actual party of inclusion here? Couldn’t be…

    Interesting comments about filing fees and inclusion. Once again the LCRC sets itself apart from the PWCRC in setting fees at $1000 for district supervisors and $2500 for board chairman and constitutional officers. Unbelievable. The stated reason for charging so much for constitutional officers is that they make a lot of money so they should pony up. I thought class warfare was the Dem’s baliwick?

    […] Greg L. over at BVBL has a post up on Mike May’s big splash at the PWC GOP meeting last night as he ramps up to run for the Occoquan Dist. supervisor seat vacated by PWC Chairman Corey Stewart.  It sounds as if the Tom Davis machine is in high gear for May. […]
