Raffi Terzian Beats Establishment Incumbent To Take Chesco GOP Chair

Raffi Terzian Beats Establishment Incumbent To Take Chesco GOP Chair — Raffi Terzian overwhelmingly beat incumbent and establishment favorite Gordon Eck to win chairmanship of the Chester County Republican Party, Tuesday (June 28).

It was part of a Republican insurgency sweeping the Philadelphia suburbs as party bosses in Montco and Bucks had to pull all stops to save their jobs.

The success by the Chesco rebels can likely be laid at the brain-dead decision Eck’s faction made in May to accuse Ron Vogel of being a Nazi racist for posting a Downfall parody in 2012 to mock the Pittsburgh Penguins while a college student.

The winning team in Chesco

Vogel won 58-percent of the vote in a straw poll to get the party’s recommendation in the May 17 primary to take on against incumbent Chrissy Houlahan in the 6th District congressional race. The establishment, however, of which Eck is a part, wanted Guy Ciarrocchi. Vogel was smeared, and his name left off the sample ballot and the Chesco GOP website.

Ciarrocchi won the primary.

And the committeepeople remembered.

Winning with Terzian were John Emmons as executive vice chair, Paula Tropiano as vice chair, Norman MacQueen as treasurer, Barbara Spall as financial secretary, Ann Marie Franciscus as secretary, Patricia Milanese as assistant secretary.

Also, let it be known that the Chesco vote, unlike in Bucks, was by secret ballot.

  1. I just hope that Raffi Terzian will pay as much attention to the problem of indoctrination in our schools as much as Dr. Eck has. I have been extremely impressed at Dr. Eck’s responsiveness to this serious matter that is impacting our schoolchildren. Dr. Eck has written Letters to the Editor on this topic and also has actively reached out to organizations that could help in this regard. I hope that Mr. Terzian recognizes the seriousness of what is happening in Chester County’s schools (like WCASD, GVSA, Downingtown, T/E and others) as Dr. Eck does. I suggest that he consult with Dr. Eck as to what he has accomplished so far and that he will carry on Dr. Eck’s commendable work in the education field .
