There is an old saying in the Business World.
If it's not wrtten down, it doesn't exist.
Recently there was a difference of opinion on what was and was not written down between the Linn County GOP Central Commitee Chair and a Local Business.
I Posted about this previously in
One side says we requite a Proof Copy to review and a Contract for both of us to sign before any agreement is settled.
The other side maintains that they had an agreement over the phone and some artwork was sent to them so therefore the money for the ad is owed.
Let us set aside for the moment the issue of who was or was not right or wrong.
Let us look at the events and the History of this Business and the local Conservative Community.
Was this the first time they had engaged in a charitible donation activity?
Hardly not there are numerous examples of their generosity to the Conservative and Republican Cause,
Why I understand during the last election they sent a shipment of pizzas out to the Victory office for the workers,
I also understand someone else tried to take credit but that everyone knew where they really came from.
That being the case and considering their long history of generosity and donating in support of us.
What would a Wise Leader have done?
Some might say they would have considered the Business's long History of generosity and said something like
Oh I am terribly sorry for the misunderstanding don't give it another thought. I will take care of everything.
They might not suggest continuing to send bill and or tell them it would be really terrible if this got out in public and gave the business some bad publicity.
What would NOT every be advised would be that the Webmaster would put a boycott request on the County GOP Facebook Group Page or on 20 other people's pages including a sitting Congressman.
I mean that sort of activity would NOT be condusive to attacking donors and Helping Republicans Get Elected.
So what should WE do to alter this sorry state of affairs?
I think a change in Leadership might be in order.
There should definitely be some discipenary action taken over the Boycott posts.
It is never in the best interest of Helping Republicans Get Elected to slander donors.
