Russell supporters encouraging non-Republicans to vote

An acquaintance in the county forwarded me a letter today “urging” myself, my friends and relatives to vote for Scott Russell.  I’m sure others of you may have seen this or something similar.  What struck me as odd is the reason behind supporting Mr. Russell.  Apparently it is not to strengthen the Republican Party in Fauquier County or to elect someone with solid Conservative principles, but to ensure Fauquier does not end up like Loudon County. 

Apparently this individual also has a problem with the county Republican Party selecting, or in her words, controlling who the Republican candidates would be when running for the Board of Supervisors. Hmmm, isn’t this how the party system works?  Why would I expect or even allow the Democrats to select my party’s nominees for an election? 

What is equally interesting is her advertising that “any registered voter in Virginia, regardless of party affiliation, can vote in this canvas”.  While not an inaccurate statement, it tells me that she is willing to water down the electorate with non-Republicans to push her own agenda in the county.  I thought this is supposed to be a canvas to elect individuals for the County “Republican” Committee.  Why actively encourage the solicitation of votes from non-Republicans?

After reading the article “Mr. Russell Was Right – It Is an Emergency!” I found out there are At-Large candidates on Mr. Russell’s team who supported candidates running against Republicans.   Today I receive a letter from one of Mr. Russell’s supporters encouraging non-Republicans to get out and vote for him.  I say, “NO”.  I will not vote for Mr. Russell; nor will I encourage anyone else to.

I’m looking for a leader with integrity.  Someone who knows the this county and espouses conservatism.  On Saturday, 22 March, I will vote for Cameron Jones.

    Mr. Cole, what is your beef? This is the way we have run things for years. And it seems to be working out just fine. Our team runs the county so why let you screw it up by controlling what candidates can run under the republican banner. If it was not for some of the meddlesome people here, we would have run the wine industry as well (at least we retained some of that control). And you silly people paid for every bit of the trouble we had to go through (your tax dollars).

    It is easier for us to just run our team as republicans (or independents) rather than deal with people in the county who will not vote for a proper Democrat. We figured that out a while back. So our republicans and independents on the BOS do what we tell them. You think they went after Bonetta because it was the right thing to do? No, we told them to because we will continue to control the land use in this county and we don’t need anybody challenging our agenda.

    This is an open canvas and we learned our lessons on how to fix that problem. We just vote in your canvas because we can and we know you will not do it to us because too many of you have principles. Your principles will not help because you also lack the smarts to even do simple research and vet your candidates.

    You may have ferreted out some of our candidates on the contested seats, but we have many more on the committee who are on our team that did not have to win an election and made it on the committee. We really love your stupid system of letting us decide who gets on the committee. And now that we know how you will check on us, we will change that too.

    Mr. Russell is doing exactly what he has been told by our team.
    Keep whining on this little blog site that nobody reads except maybe your fellow deluded christian conservatives and whaco nut job TEA people. It is not going to change anything.

    Mr. Russell learned his trick for taking over from the Greeks with the use of their Trojan horse. You get inside then destroy. Our two party system is at stake. You get rid of the opposition by taking control of their party. That is what has happened in Communist countries. You vote for Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dumb and the result is the same.
    The election tomorrow for the Chairman of the Fauquier County Republican Committee is between two very different men. Cam Jones has been an active Republican who supported every Republican candidate in Virginia. Mr. Russell invites Democrats to be a part of his team after they have supported very LIBERAL DEMOCRATS. I will certainly not vote for him. Madge Eicher

    Sounds like we just got infiltrated by the PEC. All three of the people listed as donating to democrats were and are BIG PEC supporters.

    This type of craziness and bizarre questionable conduct in emails like that is why Fauquier county has the worst reputation in the entire commonwealth of Virginia!

    Say NO to Scott Russell!!

    If you own a business or own property and want your property values to increase, vote for Cam Jones!

    Otherwise, vote for Scott and see your property rot on the market for years and end up selling it for peanuts. No one will want to invest or buy in this county if things continue as they have been…

    Welcome to the Soviet Corrupt County of FAuquier! Where prosperity is not welcome and corruption thrives and your property is worthless!

    It is time to save our property and to bring back prosperity to Fauquier! Cam Jones can and will make Fauquier the most desireable place in Virginia!

    Stop the Oppression and Assault on our American Liberty and vote for Cam!

Please Tell Us What YOU think.
