I have been elected chairman of the Westmoreland County GOP. Thank you so much for all of the support and guidance you've shown me over the last few weeks. I promise that I will do everything in my power to earn the faith you have shown in me. I want to extend a special thanks to Tiffany Schomer and Terry Speer for giving such great nominating speeches. I was honored to have them speak for me.
I also want to congratulate Kerry Jobe and Tom Wubben for their elections as party Vice Chair and Treasurer, respectively. We will work as a team to continue to lead this party to bigger and greater things.
Finally, thanks to the outgoing board of Jill Nixon Cooper, Scott E. Avolio, and Patti Campbell for all of their hard work these last two years. I know this is not an easy job, and Kerry, Tom and I, have big shoes to fill. Thank you.
Michael Korns, Westmoreland County Republican Committee Chairman
Our newly elected Chair, Michael T. Korns, called upon the leadership of the Westmoreland County Democratic Party to put aside partisan politics and stand with Republican Party leadership in denouncing the criminal behavior of the Obama IRS in his acceptance speech.
WESTMORELAND COUNTY REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE
Contact: Michael T. Korns, Chair
Newly elected Chairman of the Westmoreland County Republican Committee, Michael T. Korns, called upon the leaders of the Westmoreland County Democratic Party, Commissioner Ted Kopas and Chairman of the Democratic Committee Henry Boldyzar, to join him in calling for the Obama Administration to cooperate with Congress in its investigation of the growing IRS scandal. He further called on them to demand that the administration root out and prosecute those individuals responsible for the shameful mistreatment of innocent Americans that has been uncovered despite the administration’s brazen stonewalling:
“The release of additional emails from Lois Lerner shows without a shred of doubt that the IRS has deliberately targeted citizens for harassment and abuse because of their political and religious beliefs. Even more incredibly, the IRS has deliberately destroyed evidence of these gross violations of Americans’ basic constitutional rights.”
“This outrageous abuse of the basic rights of our citizenry is beyond partisan politics. I call on Ted Kopas and Henry Boldyzar to stand with me to protect the rights of all citizens, regardless of political belief. I will ask them to cosign a letter from me to the administration to show that this outrageous behavior is a matter of concern for all of Westmoreland County.”
“No citizen should be subject to the abuse of an out of control IRS. It is time for Mr. Kopas and Mr. Boldyzar to show that they are not parrots of the Obama Administration, but servants of the people of Westmoreland County. I call them to stand with the Republican Party, and all citizens of this County, regardless of party affiliation, in speaking out against the lies, corruption, and unprecedented abuse of power by the Obama IRS.”
