I have read both accounts of Mr. Coleman’s actions at the local county convention. As tired as some of you may feel and as reluctant to go through the events one more time, you need to revisit the whole situation as soon as the new chairman takes over and proper discussion can occur.
“Why do this?”, some may ask.
“Let it go.” , others may express.
But the fact of the matter is, Ken Coleman made allegations against some of the most active people in the party. They are tarnished. From Mr. and Mrs. LeBlanc to Keith Strahan. They made these people and others and all that believe like them sound like nuts.
They sent a message to the public, “ We will embarrass you if you believe like these people and come to party meetings.”
With Robert’s Rules of Order followed and everyone given notice, you can restore the image of the party by publicizing the results. By letting the public now that the local party has an order to it and it will be followed and people do not have to worry about this kind of authoritarian, cliquish behavior.
If you leave this alone, I believe Ken Coleman and his control over the website for weeks after this will leave a poor image in the public’s mind. You can be generous in allowing Coleman his say and it will make the public know all the more that the party is fair and that the people Coleman accused are a vital part of the party.
