I don’t want to to come off as a rubber stamp and read like an SD GOP press release to anyone other than Cory Heidelberger. Over the years I have learned that it is not always good to blindly follow orders just because we are members of a certain party. As a party, beating the drum louder does not make for better music if we are out of tune, and we cannot succeed by simply marching lockstep without coherent direction. Honest commentary is important in politics all the way up and down the chain of command.
But we also need to give credit when it is deserved, and SD GOP Executive Director Tony Post is working very hard and making a strong impression on many of the South Dakota GOP faithful by traveling the state and meeting many supporters. As I said in a previous post, I think he is a terrific person even though I may not always agree with the SD GOP.
Tony Post has been putting in a lot of hours getting to know legislators and GOP County Party officials around the state. He is a hard worker, and like every executive director could use our support. Get involved in your local county party by making sure we fill those vacant county party roles and are ready to fire on all cylinders in the upcoming election. One thing that has always made the SD GOP successful in the past is our organized grassroots effort and the way we pull together to get things done. We do not rest on our laurels after achieving success in a previous election. Let’s get behind Tony and give him and the SD GOP our full support!
Keep up the good work Tony, and let those of us who are active in the party at a precinct, district, county or statewide level know how we can be of assistance.
