Congrats to Helen Blackwell, the newest member of the 8th District GOP delegation to the State Central Committee. Helen was elected today at the 8th District Republican Committee meeting to replace Vellie Dietrich-Hall, who resigned to move to Farmville in the 5th District.
We thank Vellie for her service and welcome Mrs. Blackwell back to the committee.
Helen Blackwell has an extensive history of serving in leadership positions with the Republican Party, including serving as a precinct captain, chairman of the Arlington County Republican Committee, and as a member of the 8th District Committee in the past as an SCC member.
Thank you to Sam Batsell, Charles Hokanson, and Sammy Roth for running for the seat. This was a great class of candidates — voting went into three rounds to decide the winner!
