O’Brien chosen to head La Crosse County GOP



La Crosse County Republicans have chosen a new local chair. 

Jackie O’Brien was named county chair of the party this weekend, succeeding Bill Feehan, who stepped down as county chairman to devote more time to leading the 3rd Congressional District GOP.  Feehan will now serve on the executive committee for the county Republicans. 

Another new county officer chosen at a weekend caucus was vice-president Jordan Briskey, a local student who was active in developing a Vietnam War memorial at Veterans Freedom Park. 

Pam Rodgers will be the new county secretary for the party, and Larry Vangen was re-elected as treasurer.

La Crosse County will host the Republican State Convention in June at the La Crosse Center.
