LETTER: GOP leaders should heed Ellmers’s words

To the Editor:

In response to Rep. Ellmers’s recent speech to the Lee County GOP, party leadership should take heed to her vision regarding outreach to ethnic minorities and, more especially, women. If the recent farce otherwise known as the appointment of Andre Knecht to fill Linda Shook’s vacated position is any indication as to the present position Lee County is at in this matter, we are in trouble. While the tone may have changed at the Republican Women’s Policy Committee, I’m not certain it has here.
