Spokane GOP elects leaders

The Spokane County Republican Party precinct officers chose their party leaders for the next two years, electing Dave Moore to the chairmanship he has held since March when the previous chairman resigned.

Also elected in the biennial organizational meeting were Stephanie Cates as vice chairwoman, Susan Wilmoth, state committeewoman, and Mike Volz, state committeeman. All three ran unopposed.

Moore was elected GOP county chairman last March after the resignation of Ben Oakley. This will be his first full two-year term. 

Precinct officers also elected a total of 13 district leaders for Spokane County's five legislative districts. Some districts are so large they have as many as four elected leaders.
