A Resolution Regarding the Political Activity of His Excellency Charles Baker, Republican Governor of Massachusetts

Whereas, Party unity is crucial for victory in November, not just for the Presidency, but also for all Republican Candidates running down-ticket on the ballot, and

Whereas, the MA-GOP By-Laws clearly state the following in Article II Section 2: “No Regular Member of the State Committee, nor a Regular or Associate member of a ward or town committee, shall in any way serve the interests of any political party or sponsor or endorse any candidate of a political party other than the Republican Party in connection with any partisan election or primary in which there is a Republican candidate. Failure of a Regular Member of the State Committee or of a Regular or Associate member of a ward or town committee to comply with the foregoing standard shall subject such person to such sanctions as may be imposed by the Committee involved, which may include a request for the resignation of that Regular or Associate Member or a vote of censure…. ,” and

Whereas, Republican Governor Charles Baker of Swampscott was elected to the Swampscott Republican Town Committee on March 1, 2016, and

Whereas, said Governor Baker has on multiple occasions, not only refused to endorse the Republican Nominee for President, Donald J. Trump of New York, but also will not vote for him, and

Whereas,Governor Baker stated it is unlikely he’d vote for Hillary Clinton, but did not categorically rule out the possibility of voting for her or a third party candidate, and

Whereas, His Excellency the Governor, as the titular head of the Republican Party in Massachusetts, is respected and even revered by many members of the electorate who are apt to give his words much weight, and

Whereas, the most Honorable Governor’s words, because of his popularity and high profile among Massachusetts voters, are arguably tantamount to suggesting that voters not vote for Donald J. Trump as the Republican Candidate for President:

Therefore,

be it resolved, the Massachusetts Republican Assembly urges the Swampscott Republican Committee to take appropriate action and impose appropriate discipline on its member, Charles Baker of Swampscott, Republican Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Be it further resolved:

The Massachusetts Republican Assembly urges the MA-GOP State Committee to defend and enforce its by-laws in this matter for the sake of Party unity.
