OXFORD — The Granville County Republican Party elected a new slate of party officers at its annual convention last month.

Chad McHenry was unanimously elected as the 2021-22 chairman of the local GOP.

At the largest county convention to date, Republican delegates also elected Mike Magnanti as vice chairman, Tony Gooch as treasurer, Ridge Parker as secretary, and Sheila May as finance chairwoman.

“Each one of our new Republican officers brings with them years of campaign, fundraising and media experience that is needed to advance our conservative message and increase the Republican footprint here in Granville County,” McHenry said.

Although new to their local positions, McHenry, Magnanti and Parker are all veteran campaigners, the party said. McHenry served three terms as an elected official, while collectively Magnanti and Parker have managed dozens of campaigns in Texas, Virginia, Montana, Arizona, New York, Florida, and North Carolina.

Gooch is the director of development operations at the Durham Rescue Mission.

McHenry was also the campaign manager for Russ May’s successful bid for the District 5 seat on the Granville County Board of Commissioners last year.

“The Republican Party is committed to running principled conservative candidates for all available school board and county commissioner seats in 2022,” McHenry said.

McHenry said the Granville County Sheriff race will also attract a large amount of local interest.

“For the first time in many years Granville Republicans will have a decisive and history-making voice in electing the next Sheriff,” he said.

McHenry said he is pledging that under his leadership, all the party’s time, energy, and money raised will be spent locally on delivering Republican victories here in Granville County. He encouraged Republican voters to engage with the party by attending monthly meetings and following the party on Facebook.
