GOP keeps leaders


County chairs re-elected

        FORT MITCHELL — The chairs of the Republican parties in Boone, Kenton and Campbell county will hold their positions for the next four years.

        Ed Moore of Boone County, Barb Haas of Campbell County and Kenton County's Greg Shumate were re-elected to head their respective county GOP executive committees during intraparty elections held last weekend.

        Some new members also joined the executive committees during the county GOP conventions. Here is a look at each county's results:

        • Boone County: In addition to Mr. Moore, Emily Shelton was re-elected co-chairwoman.

        Other party leaders elected were Mike Mays, treasurer; Jeff Smith, youth chairman; and newcomer Kelly Decker, secretary.

        Mr. Moore said Ms. Decker recently moved to Boone County from Iowa, where she was a fund-raiser and activist for the state GOP.

        “We are excited about people like her who move into the area and immediately get involved,” Mr. Moore said. “She'll bring some fresh energy to our county party.”

        • Kenton County: Two long-time party activists have joined the executive committee: Kelly White of Fort Wright, the Northern Kentucky field representative for U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell; and campaign consultant Hayes Robertson, a former member of the Campbell County Republican Executive Committee who recently moved from Alexandria to Covington.

        Also re-elected along with Mr. Shumate were Chris Vissman, vice chairwoman; Andy Bertke, treasurer; and Ruth Korzenborn, secretary.

        • Campbell County: No changes were made to the executive committee or the party leadership.

        Re-elected with Mrs. Haas were Howard McEwen, vice chairman; Kay Bunning, treasurer; and Dave Malone, secretary.
