Newton City Councilor Brenda Noel had a must-read column in this week’s TAB this week written in the form of a letter to Newton Republican City Committee Chair and frequent TAB columnist Tom Mountain.
As someone who I hope puts country before party, Tom my friend, this guy is not worth jumping on the sword for. He is destroying your party and taking the country with it. Take the heat for Mitt Romney, Bill Weld, Colin Powell, people that wouldn’t abandon you in a fox hole, but not this fool. I was so proud of the leadership Mayor Giuliani displayed after 9/11, the intelligence and reserve of Condoleezza Rice. There are so many role models and true leaders in the republican party. Not Trump.
…and if you need to be reminded of Mountain’s perspective, here’s one of his recent columns.
