Want to be Waynesboro GOP chairman? You have until Jan. 12 at 5pm to file

GOP elephantBy Lynn R. Mitchell

Looking to become chairman of the Waynesboro Republican Committee? In a calculated move, there is an extremely early deadline of JANUARY 12, 2016, to pre-file for that position.

Ken Adams, who is currently chair and the agitator behind the lawsuits aimed at State Senator Emmett Hanger, is up for re-election. He is ripe for a challenge so it will be interesting to see if elected officials or other “establishment” types come up with someone to run against him.

The Waynesboro Mass Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 25, 2016, at 7:00pm.

Here is the wording from the official Call:

Candidates for election to the office of Chairman of the Waynesboro Republican Committee shall file a form, which is a written statement of intention, by mail or in person, to the Vice Chairman of the Waynesboro Republican Committee, C. R. Barrett, 401 Ridge Circle, Waynesboro, Virginia 22980. The form must be received no later than 5:00 pm, Tuesday, January 12, 2016. A form for filing to be a candidate for Chairman is attached to this Call. Postmarks do not govern.

Here is the website link — then click on “Waynesboro Official Call for 2016 Mass Meeting.”

All voting members of the public may participate in the meeting to elect chairman.

More information in the Call
Also included in the Call is information about the following:

  • FEBRUARY 10, 2016, deadline for State Convention delegates: Required form must be filed by 5:00pm on Wednesday, February 10. Virginia State Convention will be held April 29-30, 2016, at James Madison University Convocation Center. More info here.
  • FEBRUARY 10, 2016, deadline for 6th Congressional District delegates: Required form must be filed by 5:00pm on Wednesday, February 10. More info here.
  • FEBRUARY 10, 2016, deadline to file to become a member of the Waynesboro Republican Committee. Required form must be in by 5:00pm. More info here.

This Call — a political way of saying it’s a notice of upcoming meetings — says it has been posted at the Sixth District website and at the Republican Party of Virginia’s website. When I checked at 3:30pm on January 4, it was not yet listed under “Unit Calls” at RPV.

For those interested, it is suggested forms be filed ASAP to allow plenty of time to follow up in the event of a misplaced or unreceived form. If hand delivering, here is a map of the location. Be sure and get verification.
