A District Committee Chairman should not make careless mistakes like this. District Chairmen should aspire to make the Party look professional and efficient, not disorganized and careless.
Am I nitpicking? Sure, but if one can’t get the little, easy things like this right, how can one hope to be successful at the big things? If one can’t avoid violating the law with an email, what else is falling through the cracks?
Yes, I’m picking on Terry a little bit here with this email issue, but this is a good example of avoidable mistakes our Party leadership is making and that need to be fixed.
I emailed Chairman Wear a few days ago asking if he was aware of the problem and/or if he had a response to it, but have gotten no response.
The email can be seen below:
The code of the Commonwealth is clear:
The seals of the Commonwealth shall be deemed the property of the Commonwealth; and no persons shall exhibit, display, or in any manner utilize the seals or any facsimile or representation of the seals of the Commonwealth for nongovernmental purposes unless such use is specifically authorized by law.Except for the authorized commercial use of the seal as provided in § 2.2-122, any person violating the provisions of this section shall be punished by a fine of not more than $100, or by imprisonment for not more than 30 days or both. 1966, c. 102, § 7.1-31.1; 1995, c. 295; 2005, c. 839.
Time to tighten our belts and stop the little things from falling through the cracks.
