From the MRTC Chair: Ken McClellan

To the Middletown Republican Town Committee and friends who supported us.

Thank you, all for the hard work done during the recent campaign.   Our candidates ran good, clean campaigns, with no personal attacks, accusations or innuendo, campaigning on the issues, and on the records of incumbents.  I thank them for their courage, persistence and hard work during the campaign.  I do have to mention that Deb Kleckowski and Len Suzio put a stupendous amount of work and heart into their campaigns.  If work alone would win an election, it would have been a landslide for both.  I hope both of you continue to be active in politics.

Now that we’ve had a few days to digest the results of the last election, I’m hurt and disappointed that our message of small government, fiscal conservatism, personal responsibility, family values, morality and honesty in government has not penetrated.  I believe in small government, fiscal responsibility, individual freedom and personal responsibility.  If that message doesn’t resonate with most people, I won’t change my principles or my message.  This is what I believe in and what I will continue to champion.  I won’t change my principles in order to win an election.  I won’t change my message in order to be popular.   I hope that all of you agree with me.  And remember, it doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down, what matters is how many time you get up.

I also believe that charity and helping others starts with the individual, not the government.  Please remember those less fortunate, and contribute, if you can, your time, money and resources to helping others, through the food banks, shelters for women and children, churches and service agencies.

Sunday is Veterans’ Day.  Please join the Veterans’ organizations of Middletown at commemorative ceremonies on Veterans’ Green on Washington Street, at 11am, Sunday, November 11, and at the State Veterans Cemetery on Bowe Lane at 2pm.

Again, thank you for your hard work, take a deep breath, and I’ll see you all at the next town committee meeting on Nov 26.  Guests are always welcome!

Happy Veterans Day and Happy Thanksgiving!

Ken McClellan
Chairman, Middletown Republican Town Committee
