Republican Beaufort County Commissioners Meet, in Caucus, to Decide Their Choices to Nominate for Board Chairman and Vice Chairman

Press Release:

    On November 12, 2020 at 6:30 pm, the Republican County Commissioners and County Commissioner-elect Randy Walker, R, met as a caucus within the former county commissioner chambers at 121 West Third Street, Washington, North Carolina.

    The purpose of this publicly advertised caucus, called by Republican Commissioner-elect Randy Walker, was to openly discuss and select for nomination a board chairman and vice-chairman, since, with the election of Mr. Walker, the Republican Commissioners did enjoy a super majority. In the past, the pre-selection of the county commissioners' chairman and vice-chairman of the Beaufort County Board was done by secret communications by a hybrid of some Republican and the Democratic Socialist board members.

    The Beaufort County Republican Caucus of elected commissioners was promptly opened at 6:30 pm and was duly concluded at 6:36 pm. During that meeting, the Republicans decided who would be nominated to serve as chairman and vice-chairman, and who would make those nominations. In attendance for the Beaufort County Republican Caucus of elected commissioners was Beaufort County Commissioners Hood Richardson, R, and Stan Deatherage, R, with Republican Commissioner-elect Randy Walker. Absent from the Republican Caucus was Beaufort County Commissioners Frankie Waters, R, and John Rebholz, R. All Republican County Commissioners elected to serve their Beaufort County constituents, post December 7, 2020, were invited to attend.

    This press release will serve as the minutes of this publicly advertised caucus, and, if necessary, you may ...
