The Mercer County Republican Central Committee will elect a new chairman next month. The chairman is required to be an elected precinct committeemen and current chair Jason Soseman lost his bid for precinct committeemen in Mercer 6 to Bob Vickrey in last week’s primary. The new chair will be elected at the county Republican Convention on April 16th, according to Republican Mercer County Clerk candidate Chuck Gysi.
The Mercer County Democratic Central Committee will also meet that night to elect a chairman. Current chair Dick Maynard retained his precinct committeemen post in Mercer 2 last week. Maynard says he doesn’t know at this time if someone else is interested in becoming chairman of the Mercer County Democratic Party.
