Stand Tall For Jon Greiner
The 2006 Weber County Republican thorobreds are nearing the final turn, and preparing to enter the homestretch. The November election is coming up fast. While most local Republican candidates seem to be mainly "loping along" without noticeable opposition, there's one of our GOP candidates who's drawing severe heat -- our newcomer District 18 Senate candidate Jon Greiner. The Standard-Examiner has flailed him three days running on its front pages -- and very mercilously. They've effectively told him that he should simply call off his race.
We think Chief Greiner should "stick with" his campaign (at all cost,) ignore the "liberal editors" at the Standard-Examiner and maybe even go on the offensive. Stuart Reid, Chief Greiner's opponent, is definitely NO POLITICAL PRIZE, we assure you.
As Jon and I discussed during tonight's telephone conversation... Jon has at least one "ace in the hole" re the purported "Hatch Act problem."
Don't believe everything you read in the Standard-Examiner. Of course you already knew that.
We think we should all "Stand Tall"and support Jon Greiner, regardless of our internecine party differences; and not let Stuart Reid, a flaming Big Spender, and Utah's foremost proponent of municipal "Big Debt," to occupy a seat in the Utah legislature.
We'd suggest that anyone interested in achieving a Republican victory in Senate District 18, and preserving Republican stength in the senate, volunteer their services to, and vote for, Ogden's own Jon Greiner. If you have philosphical differences, they can be worked out later, we think.
Reader comments are welcome, as always.
