To the readers, bloggers, and visitors of Red Mass Group:
My name is Arthur Christopher Schaper, resident of Torrance, CA.
I am a teacher-turned-writer on topics timeless and timely, political, cultural, and eternal.
After the 2012 elections, I read a moving and motivating column by Boston Globe conservative columnist Jeff Jacoby, who emphasied the importance of Republicans to focus on local issues, stay upbeat and positive, and foster a grassroots ground game. This article he wrote in part as a response to one Red Mass Group blogger’s lament:
“The Mass GOP is. . .dead.”
I then decided that following the unexpected upsets in 2012, the GOP needed to start up its own fifty-state strategy, just as former Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean was committed to a fifty-state outreach following 2004.
I contacted GOP clubs in the Northeast, Maryland, and Delaware. I made connections specifically with party leaders in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Today, I am glad to share with readers that I am a weekly political contributor to Go Local Prov and Go Local Worcester.
I invite every able-bodied and willing conservative, liberatarian, and independent to read my pieces when they get a chance.
Mass GOP is already bouncing back, and I want to help as much as I can.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or you want to connect.
Thanks again, Mass GOP!
