The Republican Party of Los Angeles County has turned into an embarrassing non-entity.
They have run out of money. They have no integrity.
In fact, they had a weak turnout at the CAGOP Convention in Anaheim last week. I saw Howard Fakes and Andy Gimme-candy, but that was all. Where was chairman Richard Sherman? What about Gary Scam-inoff and his live-in girlfriend Maureen "The Drunk" Johnson?
They were nowhere to be found. Unbelievable. What kind of Executive board spends more time going after conservatives, when they should be building up their team grassroots, registering voters, raising money, getting Republicans elected, and making Los Angeles County great again?!
Where are they? One report informed me specifically that Scam-inoff, a coward of many stripes, chose not to attend since he would make one group angry if he voted for or against the resolution to repeal the Top Two primary.
So, what has the defunct RPLAC been up to since Jason "Spellcheck" Maruca took off since they stopped paying him?
They hired a new executive director!
Who is this person, and what does she bring to the dying enterprise?
Here's the latest eblast:
It is with great pleasure that I announce, effective Monday, October 9th, Zaira Cedano will be joining the LAGOP team as our new Executive Director. Many of you know Zaira, who has been active politically in Los Angeles County for a number of years, including being one of the earliest and longest serving interns at the LAGOP.
By the way, I contacted the headquarters, and nobody answered the phone. She's not doing a very good job!
Zaira has a Bachelors of Arts degree in Political Science and a Masters Degree in Health Policy and Management from Mount Saint Mary's University. Most recently Zaira worked for the Congressional Leadership Fund as the Los Angeles County Field Director for California's 25th Congressional District (Rep. Steve Knight). Zaira has worked on a number of political campaigns including Meg Whitman, Neel Kashkari and David Hadley. Zaira is currently the Chair of the 59th AD Committee, where she actively volunteered in recruiting and assisting local candidates and fundraising, and over the years, Zaira has helped our county party in voter registration, staffing New Citizen Ceremonies and community engagement. In addition, Zaira is fluent in Spanish, which will certainly help as LAGOP reaches out even more to diverse areas in the county.
A few reminders:
Meg Whitman lost her race for governor.
Neel Kashkari lost his race for governor.
David Hadley won his election to the 66th Assembly District without the County Party.
He lost his re-election bid when the county party got involved.
The 59th Central Committee does not exist. Go to the county part website, and you will find nothing there except a list of cities/locations in the area. The district is current represented by hard-core progressive leftist Democrat Reggie Jones-Sawyer, the same open-borders sellout who also attacked the rights of California citizens to profess and practice their faith in public and private. His own chief of staff cursed out a pastor, and the cursed-laden, viral message went viral.
She sounds like an empty suit, so why did the county go out of their way to "hire" her?
She speaks Spanish! Yes, that will make everything work out, won't it? They are still playing politics out of the 1990s Democratic playbook, obsessed with race and identity, but not interested in ideas, policies, principles, or anything related to the ongoing concerns of day-to-day life.
Due to her experience with LAGOP, she is already quite familiar with how we operate. I know that she will be a great asset to our local party leadership team.
How they operate? Distracted and irrelevant!
I encourage all central committee members to connect with Zaira over the coming weeks, to make this as smooth a transition as possible. I would also request all Assembly District Chairs schedule a time with Zaira, to provide her with the most recent updates in your respective districts.
What chairs? What leaders? There's nobody doing anything anywhere!
I believe you all will be as impressed with Zaira as Andy and I are. I know we all will work closely with our new Executive Director, in the same positive manner we did with Jason Maruca.
Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Zaira. She can be reached at Zaira@lagop.org or (818) 558-7600.
Republican Party Los Angeles County
There is something fitting and gratifying about the slow decay of the current RPLAC leadership.
They have crappy leaders, they have no ideas, and they have no money.
It's all their fault, and they get to clean up the mess, or move out of the way to allow for better leadership. Shame on all of them.
