WARSAW — Mike Ragan, who has served as Kosciusko County Republican chairman since Aug. 3, 2016, will be seeking re-election as chairman in the March 6, Republican re-organization caucus.
The caucus will also fill the positions of party vice chairman, secretary and treasurer.
Marsha McSherry, the vice chairman, will be stepping down after some 20 years in that position. She will be nominating Kristi Ormsby for that position.
Austin Rovenstine, party secretary, and Steve Foster, party treasurer, will both be seeking re-election.
Ragan, who resides in Warsaw with his wife, DeAnna, was originally elected to fill the remaining term following the resignation of former Chairman Randall Girod.
“It has been an honor to serve all Kosciusko County Republicans as their chairman and I have enjoyed it very much. Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had many accomplishments including very successful and well-attended fish fries, Lincoln Day dinners and our annual Hall of Fame dinner. Last September we had our first Kosciusko County Republican Trivia Night that was a huge hit by all who attended,” said Ragan.
“Additionally, we had a phenomenal response to our Republican headquarters in downtown Warsaw. The headquarters generated the distribution of thousands of campaign signs and donations that exceeded all expectations. Kosciusko County saw the election of every Republican on our ballot, and the margin of victory for our candidates was among the top in Indiana.”
He said there are many compelling and significant issues “that will be confronting us in the next four years and I believe my proven leadership and conciliatory style will result in the continued growth and unity in our party.”
All Republican Central Committees in the state will be up for election in the March 6 caucuses. The Republican Precinct committeemen and women and vice precinct men and women are eligible to vote in the caucuses. The Indiana Republican re-organization caucus is held every four years.
