Dear Fort Bend Republicans and friends,
Perhaps many of you have learned that my announcement after the Executive Committee last night that I was stepping down and moving on to explore other opportunities.
This was not an easy decision, but one that I prayed over for many months…but also one that I am at peace with in moving to other possibilities in my life.
Attached is a press release that explains the situation…please take a few minutes and read it.
What made this a very difficult decision is the fact that I have made so many great friends over the my time in service to our Party…and to all of you in Fort Bend County and throughout the great state of Texas…and now will not be in the same arena with you…but I will be supporting you every step of the way.
I want to thank everyone who has served with me as leaders of our Fort Bend Republican Party…to the officers who have been with me for the 4 years…to all of the Precinct Chairs who have worked hard to elect our Republican candidates…to our elected officials who have supported the Party and worked closely with us…and finally to the wonderful volunteers found in Republican clubs and from all walks of life who truly do make the difference in everything we do. All of you are very special to me and I will always be thankful for your service, superb work and friendship.
The people in the conservative Republican arena are the very best in what makes our Country great…and fully support the foundation of principles and values that clearly separate us from the other side. We must not lose these fundamental values and our support for the Constitution…but we are being pulled away from these pillars of strength every day. So I encourage each of you to remain strong in your actions to do the right things for the right reasons…to make the harder right decisions when faced with difficult issues…to remain steadfast in your support of the Constitution…and to never cease from standing up for our principles.
Our nation is under extreme attack, internally and externally. It will take more than a few of us to rise up and defend what we know to be true…protect and defend our liberty and freedoms…our very way of life and form of government. So my encouragement to each of you is to look closely at those who want to remove us from the “exceptionalism” that our nation has been known for…and to only put people in leadership positions who are there to truly serve the people and not be served…or who only want the positions for their own promotion or their own ego. We must have the right leaders who are willingly to sacrifice and take a stand…who will not be afraid to make the right decisions and do the right things for the right reasons…no matter what! These are the traits and actions of our Founding Fathers.
With great respect and admiration for our Party and all of you, Rick
