Open Letter to Brooklyn YRs

Please see below a letter that I sent to the New York State Young Republicans today.....


New York State Young Republican Governing Board,
 
Please let this email serve as my immediate resignation as Chair of the New York State Young Republicans.

I have come to the realization that I do not share the vision nor the direction this Board is going in and cannot continue in the capacity of Chair. 
 
A phrase we have used during campaign season in Brooklyn was “never lose sight of the house.” There have been times recently where I feel members in this organization have lost sight of what we are here to do. Our Founders did not intend for us to have the highest bank balance or hand out the most awards. I encourage everyone to re-read our incorporation documents to ensure that this organization is always mindful of our Founders’ intent.

Local clubs are the heart of our organization; I am fortunate to be president of one of the best in the state. If they feel unwanted, if they fall apart, if they feel we are not a benefit to them, then we cease to be a positive force and in some ways stunt their growth. Our goals should always focus on ensuring that local clubs thrive in their counties. They are the current and future leaders of our organization & our party and without them, New York will turn even more blue in years to come.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve in your organization over the past few years. I will be available during the transition process with my experience and documents that I will hand over to the next Chair.
 
Diana M Sepulveda
