New MCGOP Officers Elected

Alexander Bush

Newly Elected Chairman

of Montgomery County GOP


During the November 13th meeting of the Montgomery County GOP Central Committee, Alexander Bush became the newly elected chairman of the MCGOP Central Committee for 2019, replacing Mark Uncapher, whose current term ran through the November 2018 elections. Chairman Bush, who was elected by acclamation, noted that he welcomed the prospect of working with the current and newly elected committee members. “I believe that I am someone with whom everyone feels they can have a productive conversation,” he said, adding that “it is vital that we improve communication among Republican organizations in the County. We will focus our time and energy on the real – external – goals.” Although Alexander has only lived in Montgomery County for two years, he noted that “this is long enough to learn what needs to be done.”  

The newly elected chairman added that he was “proud to share the slate with Sharon Cohen (1st Vice Chair) & Jeff Brown (2nd Vice Chair). Jeff has the consistency and follow-through that has been vital to our success at community events. Sharon has the skills to hold the framework of the whole organization together, such as the shared calendar, building the database, preparing the email blasts, and so much more.”  As part of the slate, Lori Jaffe was elected as the new Secretary and Don Irvine was re-elected as Treasurer.
