Liz Squeaks By In Montco — Liz Preate Havey maintained her seat as Montgomery County Republican Chairwoman beating Stan Casacio in an apparent squeaker of an election, last night, June 23.
Casacio said it was agreed that the final total would not be disclosed.
Nancy Becker will remain as vice chairwoman.
Casacio said it was the most passionate meeting the party has had in a while.
“Room was so packed you couldn’t even move,” he said.
Mrs. Havey, who works for the generally Democrat-supporting Center City law firm of Dilworth Paxson, said several times during the night that she will strongly back Republican gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano over Democrat Josh Shapiro, a fellow Montco resident who also worked for a Center-City law firm, Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, before becoming Pennsylvania’s attorney general.
That she had to say it shows why there was a contest.
