The official results have not yet been posted but unofficially Elizabeth Preate Havey won the election to succeed William Donnelly, as Chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Committee (MCRC). The majority of committeepersons voted for Mrs. Preate Havey over Justice Sandra Newman.

Just prior to the MCRC covention, Justice Sandra Newman filed an emergency petition with the Common Pleas Court to delay the vote for new MCRC leadership. The court dismissed her preliminary injunction as lacking merit.

Please join me in wishing much success for Liz Preate Havey, the first female chair of MCRC, and her team of Nancy Becker and Anthony Spangler. I’m sure she will bring the same energy and unity that she brought to the Republican Committee of Lower Merion and Narberth.
