Newly Elected Lynchburg GOP Chair Wendell Walker Will Release 6th District Delegates List
Wendell Walker, newly elected Lynchburg City Republican Committee chairman.
Lynchburg experienced a great victory for Republicans Monday night with the election of Wendell Walker as Republican city committee chairman. As a long-time, experience party leader, he is committed to changing the face of local government by electing common sense conservatives.
Walker announced after his election that his first order of business as party leader will be to immediately release ALL delegate information to all candidates as they prepare for the May 19th District Convention in Harrisonburg. That is in opposition to District Chair Scott Sayre’s decision to hold the lists until mid-April, something that has caused questions from candidates about holding the names instead of releasing they can contact delegates for the convention.
In a packed room during a long meeting, Wendell Walker’s leadership to chairmanship was confirmed by an almost 2-to-1 vote, 96 to 56.
Now the goal is to take back Lynchburg for the Republican Party.
