Mark Sell Running For Reelection

By Loudoun Insider

As expected, Mark Sell announced that he is running for reelection as LCRC Chairman.  The Title Seekers, who have been desperate to get back into power, are apoplectic.  No word yet on if they will try to challenge him, but come on, what do they have to run against???  A near complete sweep of Loudoun County elected offices???


  • Mary Gail Swenson says:

    Do you REALLY know one single apoplectic “Title Seeker”? Just one? Or is this another “I’m going to throw this bomb out and see where it lands”?

  • It is clear from the election results that Mark Sell did a solid job. I look forward to voting for him for chairman this year. It doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense to remove the head of a well oiled machine that is getting done what the organization is supposed to do.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    MGS, you really are in a tizzy lately. Just ask around, any number of LCRC self professed big wigs who think they’re smarter than everyone else is saying that they need to get rid of Mark Sell and install their version of the A Team.

  • James Young says:

    I don’t know Sell, or any of the other personalities, but it’s difficult to argue against his record.

  • Liberal Anthropologist says:

    Multiple items in the comments on here have indicated that there are people including John Whitbeck who would have liked to challenge Sell.

    Whether true or not, anyone who challenges Sell should be drummed out of the party. Sell did the best in history and any pretenders to his role will be doing so for selfish reasons.

  • Liberal Anthropologist says:

    I would also expect anyone who throws their hat in the ring besides Sell to be reamed in the blogs and in private conversations. Who could even consider it now?

  • Leej says:

    I agree with James Young

  • Fred says:

    Mark Sell has been and will continue to be a stellar Chairman for the Party. He has my support and I look forward to campaigning for him. Anyone in good standing with the party has a right to run, but I can’t see how anyone could tell a compelling story that they would do better than Chairman Sell.

  • I agree with Fred. I can’t see drumming anyone out (or even criticizing anyone) just because he dared run against an incumbent chair. That’s what democracy is all about right?

    Same rationale for any R running against Frank Wolf.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Sure, anyone has a right to run. That doesn’t mean that they will win or be well received for running. The people clamoring for someone else are primarily ticked off that Sell won’t appoint them to important positions so they can wave their titles around, hence my new term “The Title Seekers” for those narcissists.

  • Had a great discussion with Sell back the night of the 10th District Oktoberfest. So. I’ve known that he’d run for at least that much ahead of you finding out. Also know that no one will challenge him. But if setting up a psuedo-infight entertains you, have at it.

    As for his appointments, we talked about those, too. That’s for you to find out , though. At the rate that stuff gets to you, you’ll no doubt hear about it in March.

  • BlackOut says:

    Hey Monk, did you have a little sit down with Black to open a can of whoop ass on him for bring up social issues before he was even sworn in? Hahaha.

    I just assume you have plenty of cans available, since you promised a big spectacle after the election and we’ve not seen anything.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    What a tool BPM is, speaking of narcisssists. I knew about this two weeks ago but didn’t post it until after he announced it publicly. no single Title Seeker out there has been more public in bashing Sell than Bullet Box Monk, telling us they need to bring on the A Team. As if Sell could give a shit what this tool thinks. He needs to be so in the know and of course tell us all about it. exactly the kind of idiot who doesn’t need to be in any position.. Biggest asshole in politics by far – Bullet Box Monk.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    It seems that Phil Tran has become the official spokesperson for The Title Seekers when they are too scared to say anything themselves publicly:

  • G.Stone says:

    ” Or is this another “I’m going to throw this bomb out and see where it lands”?”

    Yes. It can’t be helped when you don’t know what you don’t know.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    And here comes the other self professed know it all LCRC tough guy!

  • Opposing Mark Sell in the last LCRC election was a mistake on my part. He turned out to be the right person for the job.

    If Mark is willing to continue serving as LCRC chairman, local Republicans should be grateful. Mark presided over a tumultuous committee and delivered the most successful result in LCRC history.

  • Since the entirety of Republicans in Loudoun get to vote for Chairman and not just LCRC, it is difficult to seen anyone unseating Mark given his historic success last election. All he has to do is point to that and the Republicans that show up to vote are going to vote him in. Why woudn’t they? How can you do better than perfection?

    And besides, Mark is the real deal.

  • Yeah… that’s why you were still selling the Whitbeck will run for Chairman two weeks ago, when the two of them discussed it, and I was standing right there. Catch up. will you.

    Lke G. says…you don’t know what you don’t know.

    Blackout…you’ve heard of the holidays, right? Why should anyone have their Holidays spoiled for them over a political misstep? Don’t they deserve joyous holidays, too??

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Two weeks ago you were crowing about how Sell had to make way for your A Team! Dumbass. And of course you have to insert yourself into the midst of the action – please tell us all how important you are again!

    One thing that was proven this election season is that you absolutely do not need the Title Seekers to win anything in Loudoun County.

  • BlackOut says:

    I am more interested in Monk’s several cans of whoop ass he was going to unveil post election.

    Talented politicians like Black should be able to walk and chew gum right thru a joyous holiday season there Monk. I am certain you at least had a little conversation with him about his “political misstep.

  • Sell will remain, and we will build the “A” team around him.
    You guys sure are myopic. It’s a wonder that you can walk and chew gum at the same time, yourselves.
    You fixate on the most mundane stuff….
    Black hasn’t even been sworn in yet, and you guys are ALREADY “apoplectic”.

    From the outsde looking in, it sure is funny to see you projecting away, though.

    And when the language goes down hill, I cackle even harder. Have a nice holiday, and put the computer monitor back on the desk, now.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Bullet Box to the rescue! Please spell out the “we” members of the Title Seekers, Bullet Box. Those who are so indispensable in their own minds. This isn’t what you were saying just a couple weeks ago. What happened to Team Whitbeck? Did they realize he wasn’t going anywhere?

  • Liberal Anthropologist says:

    Maybe Whitbeck will get communications chair and find some way to make up for his ludicrous mailers during his campaign. I met him. He has no communication skills. He makes “Hope” and “Change” look like detailed plans.

    I also think Jesniowski (sp?) did the right thing by resigning under the circumstances, but shouldn’t have it held over his head. He is a good man and made an inadvertent mistake while volunteering late at night. The LCRC should make sure to do right by him. I don’t know what that means but I was super impressed with his apology which basically said “My fault. I screwed up. Should have caught it.”

    That is taking responsibility and I respect it. It is called honor.

  • Someone needs reading skills refocused, I suppose.
    Whitbeck was nosing around to seek input for the position. I was standing there TWO WEEKS ago (that’s a week right after the elections) when Whitbeck CLEARLY stated that he wasn’t going to run against Sell, and we all nodded.

    “Please spell out the “we” members”

    Another funny!!!! You just keep ripping out those gutwrenchers!!! I’m laughing so hard I just farted.
    You can find out in March like everyone else, “mr. connected”…..
