|Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Thank you! We did it! The Sanford-Conrad Team won a citywide majority of Republican committee seats last Tuesday. Our campaign for leadership of the Hoboken Republican Party is almost complete. Next week the Sanford-Conrad Majority will select new leaders. I look forward to serving as Chair of the Hoboken Republican Party. And, I know Ted is just as excited to serve as Vice-Chair too! Thank you for the opportunity and ability to serve.
Our citywide victory does not merely represent the changing of the guard; it is also a validation of both a new philosophy and a new leadership style. Our team’s goal was to bring more Republicans into the political process and together we did that by electing a majority. We won because a campaign focused on outreach, communication, and organization prevailed. On Election Day more people chose the Sanford-Conrad Team.
Our team also showed how new leadership can overcome the “politics as usual” that turns off the majority of Republicans. We won with a positive agenda. We did not tear down others; we built others up into future leaders of our party. Thank you for keeping an open mind and allowing us to share our vision of a brighter future for the Hoboken Republican Party.
As your leader you can expect much from me. I asked for the responsibility and you gave that privilege to me. Winning an election is not the end; it is a beginning. We are men of action and will lead the Republican Party accordingly. You elected the Sanford-Conrad Majority to act on the positive agenda we ran on.
That is why I ask my fellow Republicans to unite with our majority so that we may move forward together. As your leader I will ask for your help. I will call you for your advice. The challenges confronting our party in a stronghold like Hudson County are immense. We must not shoot ourselves in the foot if there is any hope for Republicans to secure a foothold in Hoboken.
We are at a crossroads and in moments such as these I often think of better words that speak to our better selves. “When I was child I thought as a child, I spoke as a child, I acted as a child, but when I became a man I put away those childish things.”
Thank you for the honor of running for Chair of the Hoboken Republican Party.
