Jonathan Judge To Step Down As President of Brooklyn Young Republicans
For reasons not fully known to us, we have learned that Brooklyn Young Republican President Jonathan Judge will not be continuing on as leader of the Young Republicans.
The withdrawal would mark the end of a multi-year period of activism within the organization, which witnessed many changes, fundraisers, and accolades as it continues to weather the storms produced by the irate and irrelevant Chairman of the Brooklyn GOP, Craig Eaton.
The move could also potentially mark the beginning of a new project or political aim for the young GOP leader. Meanwhile, establishment figures can only watch with concern (given their own failures) as a Young Republican organization that owes no allegiance to the weak old hands of politics moves forward.
Many of us here at Atlas have come to respect Mr. Judge for his honesty and pursuit of reform within the party. We have no reason to believe that this is the end of his activism but merely a beginning of something new.
We wish him well in his endeavors, which we hope will continue on the path of reforming government and GOP politics.
It is not clear who would be seeking to replace the GOP activist and former City Council candidate, but some sources have indicated that either Republican activist Roy Antoun or former GOP candidate Glenn Nocera would be running for the presidency.
As soon as we learn more, we will let you know.
