Lackawanna GOP Update

Good morning and welcome to the latest Lackawanna GOP Update.

2013 In Review:
The Lackawanna GOP had another successful election in 2013.  We had almost 160 candidates on the ballot in 2013 and 85% of them won - and that doesn't count the write-in candidates.

You made that happen.  It is critical that we build on these local victories and use that momentum for our candidates this year.

Important Update on party offices:
At this year's Primary Election we will be electing both the District Committee positions as well as Republican State Committee members.

Each district is entitled to one Committee Man and one Committee Woman.

Lackawanna County, as a whole, is able to elect three members of the Republican State Committee. There is gender split in this office meaning that we elect the male with the highest vote, the female with the highest vote, and then the candidate with the next highest vote, regardless of gender.

State House and State Senate reapportionment is in effect for the 2014 Elections.  Lackawanna County will now have five State House Districts.  If you know of anyone interested in seeking any of these offices, please notify us by emailing lackawannagop@gmail.com.  The new districts are as follows:
