Letter to the Editor: Broy Endorses Hodgson for Frederick Democratic Party

March 17, 2012
  
Chairman Dodson,
 
The submission of this letter is one of the first steps in which I must take to begin anew. I have been fortunate enough to have had a network of individuals, who have helped this once lowly candidate for the Virginia State Senate fight back up off of his knees following the 2011 election in which I was the Democratic Nominee who challenged incumbent “Culture Warrior” Jill H. Vogel.
 
I went form the State Senate ballot to the food stamp line in less than a month, after being forced out of my employment with Shenandoah University . It’s no secret that Vogel’s father served on the Shenandoah University Board of Trustees, and actually was given the ax by Republican Richard Shickle, Chairman of the Frederick County Board of Supervisors and also Vice President of Administration and Finance for Shenandoah University . The jig was up, and I got the boot for reasons other than misconduct as the Virginia Employment Commission recently ruled such action by the university.
 
The time has come for me to bow out of the arena, which means out of the Frederick County Democratic Committee and with that my position as Vice Chairman that I now declare vacant. I look to the western horizon and to new opportunities which await my attention. I have great deal of faith in the future of the FCDC and pray that the progress which we have made over the past few months continues forward. I ask the committee to look forward, not backwards. I ask the committee to focus on the future and not the past.
 
I ask the committee to give serious consideration to filling my seat as Vice Chairman, to the by someone from the same generation and progressive voice in which I represent. This person has proven himself as a force of knowledge, intellect, compassion, poise, integrity and proven leadership accomplishments with other organizations in our community. His competency, in which he has demonstrated in his short time as Secretary of the FCDC, should not be used against him or as shackles restraining the potential which resides in this man. I plead with the Executive Committee and FCDC to fill the seat in which I now vacate with the likes of Mr. Bradford Hodgson.
 
I have accepted a position with a new an emerging national Super PAC called Citizens Alliance for Better Candidates, in which I will serve as its National Political Director. The Citizen’s Alliance  is a political action committee (PAC) established to provide citizens with a unified voice to their elected officials, focusing mainly on the grassroots politics of our great country. We urge nominees of the all political parties to open up the dialogue, be accountable, and fully engage in debates with all opponents including independents to inform voters and give fair voice to all willing to run for office.
 
I will leave shortly for the state of Hawaii , specifically the island  of Oahu  to begin the next chapter of my life. Please make no mistake, I will never forget where I came from and do no intend on leaving behind the Commonwealth  of Virginia  forever. It is just time for me to exit stage left and finally begin anew. I will always remain the truest of blue and my heart remains planted deep within the Democratic Party.
 
My resignation shall be effective immediately upon receipt of this letter.
 
I shall leave you with a quote by Tennyson, often referenced by the late Edward Kennedy and his brothers…
 
“I am a part of all that I have met….
Tho much is taken, much abides….
That which we are, we are–
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
…strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
 
I wish you all only the very, very best in your efforts to perfect the organization and elect Democrats!
 
Respectfully,
 
Shaun D. Broy

    “I ask the committee to give serious consideration to filling my seat as Vice Chairman, to the by someone from the same generation and progressive voice in which I represent.”

    Frankly, this is the worst grammer I’ve ever seen in a “professional” letter.

    Oh, and I was stationed in Hawaii for three years. Take lots of money, it cost a bundle to live there. But you’ll be much happier. Hawaii is as blue as Massachusetts. And if you end up unemployed again, there’s a large homeless population that lives in tents and travels from beach to beach. You never get cold, and you can take a shower at the many public beach showers all around the island. Pack one set of tourist clothes too, so you can do like the homeless and go from hotel to hotel and pretend to be a tourist so you can mooch off the buffets. Just don’t go to the west side of Oahu past Ko’ Olina. That the part of the island that wants to succeed from the US and kick the white man out. They don’t like Haole’s in those parts

    As they say in the islands. Aloooooooooooooooooooooooo ha!

    Tell the hippie governor, Neil Abercrombe, Sarge said “Hey”!

    • That the part of the island that wants to succeed from the US and kick the white man out. They don’t like Haole’s in those parts

      Nice grammer Sarge!

    • Fly ont the wall says:

      Dude…you’re not the one to be ripping others about grammar (not “grammer”) and so on.

      • I’m also not the one writing a formal letter to an organozation and throwing it out for public dissemination. I’m posting on a website. Were I doing what Mr Broy did, I would at least hit the spellcheck before I sent it out to the papers.

  2. Mahalo! Must be nice to be on food stamps in Virginia and then pick up and move to Hawaii. Was that a feature in the stimulus program that is just for “Blue” wannabee politicos? If so, How bout that Obama guy!

  3. Eeeeeeh, brah, you speak da pidgeon too, eh? Iz all good whif da kine, eh?

  4. Another View says:

    Perhaps you will one day learn the value of hard, taxpaying productive work, instead of living off the labors of others. Probably not, though, given your affiliation with the party of the “takers”.
