Cheryl Bly-Chester is an idiot – she cost Jim Nielsen a Placer GOP endorsement.
She, Jon Green, and Mike Holmes are the leaders of the “Moderate Movement” on the Placer GOP Central Committee. They were part of the 8 votes in favor of Nielsen when the Placer GOP endorsed Dan Logue 16-8.
Dan Logue withdrew, citing health reasons on Monday. The state CRP by-laws state that we need 7 days notice to do an endorsement at the Cent Com level. An endorsement of Jim Nielsen by the Placer GOP should have been automatic.
Murriel Oles was asked if Jim Nielsen asked for a Placer GOP endorsement and was also asked if Dan Logue had endorsed Jim Nielsen. She answered no to both questions.
Cheryl decided that she would not take no for an answer and led an effort to overrule Chairman Jeff Atteberry who ruled a motion to endorse as out of order because of there not being adequate notice.
Cheryl Bly-Chester is noted for nit-picking every issue, making baseless accusations and extending the length of meetings as she does 30-50% of the talking that is done at a given Cent Com meeting she attends.
At the meeting last night, Cheryl was attempting to shut the meeting down over how Romney signs were purchased and “why are we getting so many cash contributions”, as people were rolling their eyes. Then she went after Jeff Atteberry.
Once Jeff Atteberry was overruled, the potential endorsement of Jim Nielsen was D.O.A. – because Cheryl is such a divisive person her tactics sealed Jim Nielsen’s doom.
When I endorsed Beth Gaines – it was an attempt to make peace.
Jim Nielsen could get my endorsement as well if he called me. However, whether Jim Nielsen cares about Aaron Park’s endorsement or not – Cheryl Bly-Chester is hurting his cause and Jim Nielsen would do well to distance himself from her.
