Is it too early to think about city council 2009? I don't think so. As your chairman, I think it's important that we deal with the present and have a vision for the future.
Last evening, I met with an influential party activist who feels strongly that our council candidates need to start early. I agree.
You can be sure that our party resources are focused on electing John McCain and winning our countywide seats that are up THIS November. However, beginning a dialogue about potential council candidates and urging those people to start early is not a drain on our party resources.
I plan on aggressively pursuing seats in every part of this county and we simply can not walk away from the city core.
