Jordan has more time for party chair post

April 19, 2013

In Delaware we are fortunate to have many strong women leading the Conservative charge. More specifically, there are two strong and dedicated patriots running for Vice Chair of the state Republican Party. One is Ruth Briggs King and the other is Nelly Aliste Jordan.

Many of us in Sussex County are torn between two candidates. Herein I am going to offer the argument for Nelly.

Let’s assume that all things are equal regarding ability, dedication, ideas, persistence and proven work as active responsible citizens for the state and party. One is a hardworking, effective and energetic legislator (Ruth). The other is an RD chairman, conservative activist, dedicated and proven advocate for her party (Nelly) and—incidentally, a Chilean American citizen with contacts throughout the state and a plan to bring people from a broad spectrum into the party.

Ruth, because she is extremely busy with her legislative work, has a full plate. She will be pulled in many more directions if she becomes vice chair. Experience shows that when people are distracted by a plethora of issues, controversies and tasks, most humans lose effectiveness. Time, the great equalizer, takes its toll.

Nelly, a retired real estate professional and partner in a printing business, has promised to devote all of her time to the job of building the party. What Nelly says she will do, I know by experience, she will do.

My purpose is only this: To ask Ruth to continue doing her fine job as representative for the 37th district. This means she can use her free time delving a little deeper into important issues and use her keen mind to lead in Dover. Let Nelly devote her full time to party building, coalescing conservative groups throughout the state and strategizing to increase our base.
