Usurper! [March 8]

Usurper! [March 8]

At the conclusion of the monthly Albemarle County GOP breakfast, perhaps while his colleagues reloaded one more time on biscuits and sausage gravy at the Golden Corral Steakhouse, First Vice Chairman Christian Schoenewald left to prepare a press release that he sent to local media sources around 1pm. The speaker for March, County GOP Chairman Keith Drake, had announced during the breakfast that he would not pursue reelection as chairman, opting instead for a gig as chairman of the Albemarle Truth in Taxation Alliance. Schoenewald’s press release ends in much the same way as he ended the breakfast—with his announcement to seek the chairmanship vacated by Drake.

Christian Schoenewald will seek the Albemarle County GOP chairmanship.
