Beaufort county Republican Party Chairman change | Eastern North Carolina Now

    This is to advise you that Proctor Kidwell resigned his position as party chairman due to conflict with his business and ability to properly administer the business of the party. The Executive Committee selected me, Keith Kidwell to fill the vacancy effective immediately. My thanks to the Executive Committee for so heartly expressing their confidence in me, I will do my best to lead the party in a direction of growth and continued success of getting Republicans elected.

    I would like to thank Proctor for his service to the party, he performed a job that very few people would even attempt, He will retain his position as a committee member. Proctor, we wish you well with your endeavors and again thank you for your service.

    This evening I set the tone for the BC Republican Party, it is my desire to have a good representation of the county by having Executive Committee members from every precinct, to promote the party and adhere to the party platform and POO.

    As my first official act I appointed Jackie Van Essendelft as the chair of the Reagan Day Dinner. Jackie has done a fabulous job with the effort in the past. Dick Denton was appointed to chair the arrangements for the county precinct meeting as well as the county convention. David Cox has expressed a desire to retire as treasurer, he has served in this position for many years and deserves a break, but you will be sorely missed.

    We will not have a business meeting in December. instead we will have a Christmas Social meeting with spouses at Jacks Tavern in Belhaven on December 18th at 6:30pm. This will be Dutch treat.

    If you know of someone who would be willing and able to serve on the Executive Committee please have them contact me at this email or by phone 252-945-0985.

    I look forward to working with each of you for the success of the party.


      Keith D Kidwell
