We'd like to wish Niagara County GOP Chairman Henry Wojtaszek the best of luck in his pursuit of the New York State Republican Party Chairmanship. At this point, it appears as if it will be a two-horse race, with former gubernatorial candidate John Faso also seeking the top GOP position in the state. Of course, it's not clear if current chairman Joe Mondello will run again when his term expires in September.
Wojtaszek recently left his position with the law firm of Harris Beach to devote his time and energy to the effort.
In order to win the top spot, Wojtaszek will have to win over the majority of the 61 other county GOP chairmen & chairwoman. That will be no easy feat for someone from the most northwestern county in the state. But if it can be done, Wojtaszek can do it. Why? Because he wins races, and that's what matters. While most GOP parties in counties across the state are struggling with a two million voter-enrollment disadvantage, Wojtaszek has transformed the Niagara County GOP into one of the most successful county parties in the state.
Not only that, Wojtaszek has other qualities that the GOP needs at the top; he's an excellent communicator, he's able to lead without being authoritarian and yes, I'm not afraid to say it, he he the physical attributes to be the face of the party.
Once again, best of luck to Wojtaszek. We're looking forward to following this story closely for the next few months.
