Endorsement made for party chairman

Glenn Hart, the District Five Oconee County councilman, wants a change at the top of the county Republican Party.  In advance of the party’s convention this Saturday, Hart is publicly endorsing David McMahan to be the next county party chairman.  “He’s really a true conservative and that’s what we need for our county,” said Hart.  Current Chairman Bill Jerome says his name will be placed on the ballot and he’s seeking re-election.  The Republicans have booked Seneca’s Gignilliat Community Center for their convention Saturday morning.
