Maryland GOP Has New Director
The Maryland Republican Party has tapped Justin Ready, an aide to Sen. Janet Greenip (R-Anne Arundel), as its new executive director.
Ready succeeds John Flynn, who has taken a job as staff attorney for Americans for Prosperity, a DC-based group that promotes limited government.
Party Chairman James Pelura said Ready, 26, was chosen from more than a dozen applicants. His appointment comes as the party is working to repair its finances, which were badly damaged when fundraising dried up after former GOP Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr's loss to Gov.Martin O'Malley (D) in 2006.
Pelura said the party has paid off $65,000 of a $100,000 line of credit it was forced to take out to cover its debts. He said he hopes to have everything paid off by mid-summer.
"Our thrust is to get our debts paid off,"he said. "Then we can start working on [the election of] 2010."
