Upon New Revelations, Massachusetts Republican Assembly Renews Call to Remove DCR Chiefs, Calls on Local Republican Committees to Act
Sisk and Roy can’t (golf) cart themselves around on the taxpayer’s dime.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Contact: Mary Lou Daxland – email@example.com
At the much-discussed July 3rd bash at Republican National Committeeman’s Beacon Street Home, it has been noted that Roy and Sisk used golf carts to shuttle guests to and from the Esplanade from Kaufman’s home. New problems have come to light since that revelation: Utilizing public resources not available to the general public for an event is considered unethical. Massachusetts General Laws (MGL) are also very strict on how golf carts can be used.
According to MGL Chapter 90: “A motor vehicle designed for the carrying of golf clubs and not more than four persons may be operated without such registration upon any way if such motor vehicle is being used solely for the purpose of going from one part of the property of a golf course to another part of the property of said golf course, provided that the owner of such motor vehicle shall have filed with the registrar a public liability policy or bond providing for the payment of damages to any person to the amount provided by section thirty-four A due to injuries sustained as a result of the operation of such vehicle.”
“We can’t let Sisk and Roy take the taxpayers for a ride,” Massachusetts Republican Assembly President Mary Lou Daxland said, “The entire area around the Esplanade was closed off for the Pops rehearsal, but somehow Sisk and Roy got approval to use DCR equipment as a livery for a private party. What would have happened if an accident occurred? Were these the only golf carts in the Commonwealth registered to drive on public roads?” Daxland asked.
“The law is very clear on this. There needs to be some accountability for Mr. Sisk and Mr. Roy.,” Massachusetts Republican Assembly National Director Brian Kennedy stated. “For Mr. Roy that matter is best handled by the Governor himself, but as for Mr. Sisk it is clear he cannot be allowed to tarnish the Republican brand name with so much riding on November’s Elections.”
“Therefore, the Massachusetts Republican Assembly has made available a resolution calling for a vote of no confidence in Mr. Sisk, made available for distribution on The Assembly’s website and other avenues. The resolution calls on the various Ward and City Town Committees to make known their disapproval of Mr. Sisk’s actions, and that as a publicly elected face of the party who has received the Governor’s endorsement for State Committee, that in failing that standard of ethics touted in the Governor’s endorsement that he should resign forthwith.” Kennedy finished.
The Resolutions (One for Republican Town/City Committees, One for Republican Ward Committees) are available at Mass-RA.com/Sisk-Resolution, RedMassGroup.com and BostonBroadside.com
