New Caldwell County GOP Chair – Phil Ingle


THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE 5-HOUR MARATHON CONVENTION ON SATURDAY!!  We’ll try again in two years.

OUT OF 159 DELEGATES ELIGIBLE TO VOTE FROM THE PRECINCT MEETINGS, ONLY 136 DELEGATES ATTENDING.

Phil Ingle beat me by 83/53 votes for Chair (many after before this vote)

Sam Yearick beat me by 20 votes for Vice-Chair

Clay McCreary ran uncontested for 2nd-Vice-Chair

Gary Whisnant only defeated Shirley Kanode by 6 votes for Secretary (many more left after this vote)

Tim Hawkins ran uncontested and is now Treasurer

We offered 16 smaller gov’t, lower taxes, less spending people up for the At-Large Members spots but only gained two seats (me and Steve Bogdan).  The other 18 At-Large members are basically the same people as before.

Smaller gov’t, lower taxes, less spending people now control 7 precincts and hold two At-Large positions within the Caldwell County Republican Party.  9 out of 87 is just over 10%.  🙂

Thanks a million everyone!!  We did great!

For you Democrats — You have a County Convention on 4/9 at 11am in the downstairs of the County Office building.

About Christine

I believe in the CONSERVATIVE principles and values of the Republican Party as they are written, and not how they are currently practiced by today's RINO's. Smaller government, lower taxes, more personal responsibility, states' rights, free market capitalism, and less government intrusion in our lives!

    Burke County held their GOP Convention on Saturday as well. After 2 1/2 hours the Richard Epley was voted Chairman of the party, defeating me by 6 votes. Laurie Moody was elected Vice Chair with Ken Carrico voted 2nd Vice Chair. I remain involved as Precinct Chair for Linville 2.

    Working here,

    Vance

    What does “At Large Member” mean?

    Thanks! I still need to learn more how it all works. You and Steve will surely add a common sense approach to any future discussions and decisions made by the Caldwell County GOP Executive Committee.
