How did the meeting go? In a word… unbelievable! Scott Martin is a seriously smart guy and very impressive. He completely gets it. He is the guy that you want next to you in any fight.
We could have walked out in about three minutes and have been completely confident that he is one of us and with us. He has eliminated government agencies here in Lancaster County and streamlined expenses . He closed a human relations department that brought out the lunatic Left in force, even an openly Communist group. They were marching around with duct tape over their mouths waving their signs.
That is how one measures success in our country. If the Left hates what you are doing, you should double and triple down.
The one problem is that he is leaving at the end of his term later this year. However, he says he does not plan on leaving the fight. He is going into the private sector, but he assured us he will be available to us.
Today was a great day.
For all the people that routinely tell me, and rightfully so, that all politicians are bastard coated bastards with bastard filling, be thankful that there are exceptions to the rule.
