The $1,000,000 Question

At the advance RPV Chairman Kate Obenshain Griffin mentioned the formation of a "New Northern Virginia Strike Force". Just what is the stike force, and how come no Northern Virginia leaders had heard of it?

It sounds like she's looking to crack down on criminal activity up here. I know I sure intend to clean up my act before that there Strike Force starts to clean this place out.

My guess is that it's something that was thought up very much on the fly going into the Advance as a means of de-fusing concern that RPV doesn't have a clue about what is happening in Northern Virginia. If she were serious about it, she would have had Davis and/or Connaughton lined up to Chair the thing and would have given them a broad warrant to gather information on trends and issues that will affect voter behavior in this region over the next ten years. The "Strike Force" nomenclature is unfortunate and probably confirms that RPV and/or Kate don't have a clue. No doubt they'll learn more in 2007.

Why didn't someone ask Kate about the task force. I didnt hear about it until I got home and read it on the blogs. I would have poijt blank asked if I wanted to know. I do agree though that it is interesting that if electeds in NOVA don't know what this is, how will we help ourselves?

Eric Lundberg , Fairfax County Party Chair wasnt told, and neither was Randy Minchew, Loudoun County Party Chair.

No one knew!

Maybe we weren't supposed to talk about it. Quiet everyone - loose lips sink ships and all that.

Maybe they're going to strike out at all the "RINOs". Maybe Rick Hendrix or Bob Fitzsimmonds know about it.

Fairfax GOP Chairman Eric Lundberg and Loudoun GOP Chairman Randy Minchew see eye-to-eye on Northern Virginia Republican politics and they both have great skills. Here in Fairfax, Eric has done a great job reaching out to the Hispanic and Asian communities and over in Loudoun County, Randy has augmented his unit committee with a bunch of Black Republicans through his work with Don Scoggins' Frederick Douglass Republican Forum. Randy even staged a Black Republican marching group in the annual Leesburg MLK Day Parade much to the chagrin of the local Dems.

You could not find two better guys to be on that new "Strike Force"

We definitely need a bunch of folks who have never been elected to office to lead a "strike force" on figuring out why they have never been elected to office. Lord help else ...
