Idaho County Republican Central Committee

The chairman (Jon Menough) and vice-chairman (Kevin Duden) have both taken jobs in different states than Idaho. As a result, an election must be held to elect a new chair and vice-chair. The rules require a 30-day notice.

An election for chairman and vice-chairman will be held at the normal monthly meeting of the Idaho County Republican Central Committee on Feb. 20 at 6 p.m. in the Conference Room of the Super 8 Motel in Grangeville.

The rules also state that the chairman and the vice-chairman do not need to be elected as precinct committeemen to hold the office of chairman/vice-chairman.

The new chairman and new vice-chairman will hold office until May. This is when all precinct committeemen are up for re-election and the entire committee is re-organized.

If you are interested in holding one of the two offices currently vacant, please notify the secretary to be put on the agenda. Each candidate will have a short time to speak to the committee as to their qualification.

-Patricia Menough
