County GOP calls for resignation

Submitted by Lyle Brinegar
Appanoose County Chair

---- — The Republican Party of Appanoose County Central Committee passed the following resolution Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013:

“We, the Republican Party of Appanoose County, call for the resignation of the Republican Party of Iowa Chairman, AJ Spiker. Chairman Spiker has led, if not supported, the decisions within our state party that has caused division, disconnect with the local level, and failure to raise funds as well. Whether it has been attacking Republican elected officials, attacking the District Executive Committee’s or moving our State Convention back a month, he has divided and has hurt our party, along with our conservative efforts. We call for his resignation and ask for new, bold leadership for our state party and we demand that sanity is once again restored.”
