Meet the new Executive Board of Officers for the College Republican Federation of Virginia 2015-16:
Chairman: Kasha Nielsen (University of Virginia)
1st Vice Chairman: Devon Flynn (George Mason)
2nd Vice Chairman: Jake Lee (James Madison University)
Secretary: Nathan Ritchie (College of William and Mary)
Treasurer: Kim Gibbons (Va Tech)
Led by UVa junior Kasha Nielsen who won with a vote of 99-17, the entire CRFV team swept the election during their annual convention this weekend on the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville. After months of hard work along with outgoing CR Chair Liz Minneman (UVa Class of 2014) and crisscrossing the Commonwealth visiting college campuses, they earned the endorsements of most CR chairs as well as YRs, activists, and elected officials.
The team campaigned under the banner “Empower CRFV” with a positive message from these young leaders who are the future of the Republican Party. With a pragmatic vision for strengthening the GOP, a plan of inclusiveness, and a desire to work hard to elect Republican candidates, they are shining examples of what hard work and perseverance can do to build the party.
