Neither Steve Stepanek or Pam Tucker are staying for a third term:
Concord, NH – NHRepublican Party Chairman Stephen Stepanek and NHRepublican Party Vice Chairwoman Pamela Tucker released the following statements in regard to their positions at the New Hampshire Republican Party:
NHRepublican Party Chairman Stephen Stepanek’s Statement:
“It has been a privilege, honor, and pleasure to serve as Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party for the past four years. I learned a long time ago, in business, that a leader is only as good as those he surrounds himself with.
I would first like to thank my amazing Vice Chair Pamela Tucker. Her work in organizing and overseeing candidate recruitment was nothing short of amazing. She has also worked hard on setting up a women’s program to identify, train and mentor young women who will be our next leaders.
A sincere thank you to Juliana Bergeron, our National Committee Woman, who worked closely with me as we fought to protect our First in the Nation primary as well as being at the forefront of putting together many of our successful fundraising events.
I would also like to acknowledge and thank Kate Day, who headed one of the key programs, that I promised I’d focus on when elected, and that is the building of a grassroots organization; the foundation of any strong party. Kate headed the project to create new town committees across the state. Thanks to Kate, today over 80% of the towns in New Hampshire that have their own Republican town committee or belong to a regional town committee.
At the start of my time as Chairman, my Executive Director Elliot Gault and my Communications Director Joe Sweeney did the work of six people and did it well. When Elliot moved onto the Governor’s office, Joe stepped up as ED and we brought on Maya Harvey as our Press Secretary. Maya proved to be an outstanding energetic person who held the capacity to light up any room she entered. Joe and Maya were such a good team that Senator Morse recruited them to run his US Senate campaign.
Fortunately Elliot Gault stepped forward again as ED and we recruited Mackenzie Rohde from New Jersey as our Communications Director. We again struck gold in bringing Mackenzie on board who strongly took control of NHGOP’s messaging that properly supported our platform.
My sincerest gratitude to all of you.
When I was elected four years ago, the NHRepublican Party was and had been in serious financial condition for many years. I made two commitments that day. The first was to put the party on a firm financial footing with an established donor base. The second was to create a solid grass roots organization.
I am happy to say that with the help of many dedicated people, a few which I have mentioned, that my goal has been achieved.
Therefore, today I am announcing that I will not be seeking a third term as Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party.”
NHRepublican Party Vice Chairwoman Pamela Tucker’s Statement:
“I have made the decision to not run for re-election for the NHRepublican Party Vice Chair position for the next term. Moving on from the NHRepublican Party as Vice Chair is a bittersweet feeling. I am looking forward to my next endeavor, but look back with a grateful heart for our team and all the experiences we’ve shared together. First and foremost, I’d like to thank my colleague and friend, NHRepublican Party Chairman Stephen Stepanek, who led our team day in and day out, was a fundraising machine, and held the reins of making the NHRepublican Party the successful organization it is today. I am grateful for what everyone has built together; the support we’ve shared for each other and the accomplishments and hardships that we’ve tackled as a team. Thank you to every member of the NHRepublican Party staff and team for making my job as Vice Chair as smooth as possible. I graciously thank every supporter, activist, door-knocker, sign holder, and all those in between for making my time at the NHRepublican Party a success! We did what we set out to do and then some, and as Vice Chair, that’s all I could ever ask for.”
Not enough noses to count or that the base is rather dissatisfied with unmet expectations?
