Those of us that support Doug LaGrange, put the goal of community preservation and limited commercial retail development ahead of zealous and blind party politics. Just like Doug LaGrange, we are all long-time loyal
Republicans who have worked hard to promote the conservative principals of our party, and build the Republican party in New Scotland. However in the
face of such enormous consequences for our community this election year, we cannot and will not support those candidates and their supporters on the GOP Committee who would purposely leave us open to unchecked growth...growth which would have profound adverse and irreversible impacts on our community for decades to come. We remain committed to the core Republican ideals of quality local government that delivers responsive representation and affordable necessary services as desired by the majority of residents. As such, we remain as members of the Republican Party and fully understand that elections do have consequences. Accordingly, we are putting our full support and endorsement behind Doug LaGrange and are resigning as members of the New
Scotland Republican Committee effective October 1, 2009.
