Eagle County Republicans elect new party officers

Eagle County Republicans in February held their election of officers at the Eagle County Ambulance District Classroom in Edwards.

With seven seats up for election, Kaye Ferry was once again elected as chairman, John Rosenfeld as first vice chair, Bill Douglas, second vice chair, Dan Gumber third vice chair, Max Schmidt, fourth vice chair, Jennifer Woolley as secretary and Katherine Paisen Senn as treasurer. All will serve two-year terms.

District captains, who are normally appointed at this meeting, will be appointed in April, giving the committee time to review changes in the district guidelines and make appropriate changes to the bylaws.

“Once again, it is an honor to be elected as chair of our local party,” Ferry said. “However none of the achievements we’ve had these past 2 years would have been possible without the help of our tireless executive committee and all of our hard working volunteers.”

This is the beginning of a long process. In odd-numbered years, by state requirement, all elected offices for all districts are required to elect officers for their central committees. The process begins at the county level and moves on to the other district offices and finally to the officers for the Colorado Republican Committee.

Once in place, all of these districts will have specific responsibilities centered around finding qualified candidates for office, providing the necessary support to get them on the ballot with the ultimate goal of getting them elected.

“Going into a presidential cycle puts even greater emphasis on the need for a strong organization with experienced leaders in place. Fortunately, this team has worked well together in the past and we look forward to the elections ahead” Ferry said. “I couldn’t ask for a better team.”
