If you’ve ever thought you might want to move to Alaska, you may want to rethink that now.
From Alaska Dispatch:
After at least 12 years of the Alaska GOP being run by what those party newcomers call “establishment Republicans,” a new force is taking over: Alaska Republicans voted Russ Millette as the party’s new chairman and Debbie Holland-Brown as co-chair. They are both supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul.
This quote from outgoing chairman Randy Ruedrich stood out to me:
“There’s always someone pointing out that the world would be a better place if they were in charge.”
Why would he say that? Well, it’s pretty clear to me. It is one thing to gather enough support to take control of something. It is quite another thing entirely to be in the lead. Running an organization is not at all like taking over an organization.
