No One Likes Eric Marcus
You'll recall that Marcus lost the mayoral race with a paltry 27% of the vote. Today - in his weird bid for Democratic Party head after becoming a member for the first time just a few weeks ago - Marcus garnered 2% of the vote against longtime Democrat, Jane Witt.
Witt got 167 votes and Marcus got 4.
That's not even the wildest part. Marcus and his slate - Vice-Chair, Scott Sharp, Secretary, Penny Sharp and Trustee, Janice Hand - didn't even show up to vote for themselves. The Sharps generated 4 votes each and Janice Hand did the best with 18. Needless to say they all suffered a crushing loss.
It has been no secret the county party has been in disarray with personal grudges and in-fighting among the executive board. Party meetings became an embarrassment with erratic and spiteful behavior displayed by some elected party officials that were dis-invited today to continue in leadership positions. Good riddance.
Congratulations to all the newly elected party officers: Jane Witt, Julie Krautkramer, Beth Pramme, Jeff Coe, Diana Kovacs, Joe Cushing and everyone else elected today. It was a solid house cleaning effort just in time for the important work ahead. Now let's clean out the Capitol next!
As for Marcus...Try the Tea Party you couldn't do any worse.
