WNY (WKBW/Release) - At a meeting of the Southtown's Republican Chairman's Association Wednesday, August 29, 2012, under the leadership of Town of Brant Republican Chairman Carmen Vacco, Nicholas Langworthy was unanimously endorsed for his second two year term as Erie County Republican Chairman and Ralph M. Mohr for another four year term as Republican Elections Commissioner.
"Chairman Nick Langworthy has the leadership skills and political knowledge to continue to lead Erie County Republicans to success," Vacco said.
"Even with an enrollment disadvantage in Erie County, the Republican Party has still been able to elect Republicans to office not only county wide, such as the 2011 election of Erie County Clerk Chris Jacob, but also has had a hand in keeping numerous local towns under Republican leadership. "
Langworthy has implemented the day-to-day operations of the Republican Party while working to rebrand the Party as an organization that fights for local taxpayers by bringing common sense private sector principles into government.
Vacco said of Commissioner Mohr, "Local Republicans are lucky to have the most experienced election law attorney in New York State right here in Erie County."
Ralph Mohr has served as an election commissioner for Erie County since January 1, 1993. He is a former Executive Committee chairman of the New York State Election Commissioner's Association, and former chairman of that association's Republican member caucus.
The Southtown's Republican Chairman's Association is comprised of the towns of Aurora, Boston, Brant, Cheektowaga, Colden, Collins, Concord, Eden, Evans, Hamburg, Holland, Marilla, North Collins, Orchard Park, Sardinia and West Seneca and the City of Lackawanna
