The Madison County Republican Executive Committee announced Friday the election of new leaders to serve from Jan. 1, 2019, through Dec. 31, 2020.
Brad Taylor will be the new party chairman. Glenda Reitzell is the new vice chairman. Kathy Linden is the new secretary. The treasurer will be Linda Coats. Brad Taylor succeeds newly elected State Sen. Sam Givhan, R-Gurley, as the Madison County Republican Party Chairman.
“Brad and Glenda are longtime stalwarts of the local Republican Party. Our future is in capable hands,” said Givhan.
Brad Taylor has volunteered with the Madison County Republican Party since 1988 and previously served as vice chairman for three terms. He manages the local GOP’s website and social media.
“I look forward to growing our party, to keep a Republican in the White House, and to add a Republican to the U.S. Senate in 2020,” said Taylor.
Glenda Reitzell is active in the Republican Women of Huntsville and past Treasurer of the Madison County GOP. Former Governor Riley appointed her to be one of the Commissioners of the Alabama Space Science Exhibit.
“Our goal is to elect qualified Republican candidates to serve at each level of government. I look forward to working with our committee to achieve our goals,” said Reitzell.
