Dear Editor:

Congratulations to the Schuylkill County Republican Party. On June 12, 2010 the majority of the members elected a new chairman,Joe Stearns. He will bring dignity back to the party. I'm sure there will be no backroom deals. When good candidates run for office it will be run on an even playing field. I was happy to see this, as we all know the party is losing its representation in the county.

I wish Joe Stearns the best of luck and success, because he has a full plate to restore the integrity and honor of the party.

Sincerely,

A three generation Republican,

John H. Schickram
