(I know Rick Green has stated he would commit to six years as chair. Not sure about Kirsten’s thoughts on that. does anybody know?

The MassGOP seems to go through a new Chairman every election cycle. As a thought experiment, wouldn’t it be something if the next Chair actually wanted to stay in that position for more than 2 minutes? Would a long-term Chair be beneficial to the Party?
The amount of rebuilding and restructuring that needs to take place with our party’s infrastructure is a long-term (more than 2 years) project. Perhaps the Party would be better served if the leader of the Party would commit to seeing that through. No matter how long it takes.
These stop-gap Chairmen, getting us through one cycle using the same old tired tactics, means we start from scratch every 2 years. The folks in the field deserve to be lead by someone as committed to growing the Party and electing local and state-level candidates as they are.
When the Chair is not committed, how can we expect the grass roots to be? How can we develop best practices if we start from scratch all the time? How can we build long-term relationships with candidates and activists with such high turnover at the top?
