Spartanburg, SC – On Tuesday, April 7, 2009, the Spartanburg Young Republicans held a board meeting to elect a new chairman of the county organization.
The outgoing leader, Gary Coats, who will be heavily involved in a congressional campaign in 2010, has decided it was in the best interest of the group for him to step down. Coats will remain an active member of the organization.
Ashley Lane takes the lead of the organization while the entire Republican Party is showing true colors of its turn around especially in Spartanburg County.
Ashley stated the following about being elected Chairman of the SYR:
“I am very excited with the opportunity given me to lead and build this organization. We are working hard to make sure that the Young Republicans (18-41) are well represented and can assist in rebuilding the party. It is our time to pick up the torch and run with it. We are not just volunteers, we are here as leaders, ready to bring the party back to its conservative roots.”
The next meeting of the Spartanburg Young Republicans will be on Thursday, April 16th at 6pm at the Beacon Drive-In as the group will participate in the Tea Party to demand fiscal responsibility from their elected officials.
