Gandrud, Mollenfopf, Mundt, Jeffers, and Hurd to Head Local GOP

Santa Barbara County Republican Party Announces New Slate of Officers for 2011-2012

The Santa Barbara County Republican Party has re-elected former Carpinteria City Councilman, Gregory Gandrud, as Party Chairman for a two year term. Other officers selected to lead the group from 2011 to 2012 are: Attorney Kristine Mollenkopf (Santa Maria) as First Vice Chair; Jon Mundt (Lompoc) as Second Vice Chair, Robert Jeffers (Lompoc) as Secretary; and Ron Hurd (Carpinteria) as Treasurer.

We are looking forward to the next election cycle with enthusiasm,” remarked Mr. Gandrud, “We have hired Lindsay Stetson as Executive Director. In addition, the Lincoln Club of Santa Barbara has gone inactive and is consolidating with the Central Committee to streamline and maximize our efforts.” In addition to the celebration on February 6th of Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday, under Ms. Stetson’s direction, the group is planning a traditional Flag Day Fundraiser.

The Central Committee will continue to meet on the third Wednesday of every month at 6pm at Pea Soup Andersen’s in Buellton. All Republicans are welcome to attend and are encouraged to volunteer for various committees including fundraising, communication, voter registration, and precinct organization.
