Dysfunction, Thy Name Is Manassas Park

By Greg L | 18 February 2013 | RPV, Manassas Park, Manassas City | 3 Comments

The Manassas GOP joins the Prince William County Republican Committee in getting their call for a delegate selection process for the 2013 State Republican Convention out the door, and as usual all we hear from the Manassas Park Republican Committee is silence.  Those patiently waiting for an update to the Manassas Park Republican Committee’s website for any kind of announcement apparently have to wait a little longer for news on this, but they should be relieved to know that the next committee meeting is scheduled for July 27th, 2010.

In years past the Manassas GOP has had to step in and not only write the calls for the park after their usual inaction, but pay to have their calls published in the paper as well.  Democrats finally figured out a few years ago that it made sense to just have the city committee take over operations in the Park.  Republicans, in the wake of the Kevin Brendel scandals and his abandonment of his post, decided to give the park another shot at sorting itself out and reorganized it.  Brian Leeper took over, did a good job for a while pretty much single-handedly running the entire shop, got himself elected to the Governing Board, and now there’s no GOP leadership getting the job done again in the park.

Sometimes Democrats have a good idea worth trying out.  It’s admittedly a rare occasion when this happens, but they did manage to not only get this locality back on track for them and get all the polls covered last November, they actually managed to get Moonfruit Jeanette Rishell elected to something.  That’s a pretty monumental accomplishment when you really think about it.

It’s time we just throw in the towel on this continuing saga and merge the Manassas Park Republican Committee with either the Manassas GOP or the Prince William Republican Committee once and for all.  Republicans in Manassas Park have got to be tired of this never ending dysfunction and deserve to have something that works for them.

    The whole city is dysfunctional. From one bad decision after another. I wish someone would just plow down city hall and fold it back into the county. No business with the right mindset would setup shop in MP.

    I’ve updated the website with the call and the filing form.

    As our committee decided to set the deadline for pre-filing to April 20, that should be plenty of time for those interested in going to the RPV convention to return the form, and still allow our committee to comply with the RPV requirement that nominations be done by April 30th.

    I do not care to comment on how or why other committees choose their deadlines for filing–that is their business and they can do things as they see fit, so long as they comply with RPV requirements–but I will note that the earliest possible deadline for pre-filing is February 22.

    I will say that, for our committee, a later filing deadline works better as it gives more people the opportunity to file. We have never been inundated with filing forms. Should that start happening, we may consider an earlier filing deadline so we have time to process the filing forms.
