Could RoseMarie Panio’s days as leader of the Westchester Republican Party be numbered?
While Panio still maintains she has no intention of stepping down, a motion calling for her resignation was made at last night’s meeting of the county GOP’s Executive Committee. It was floated by Cortlandt Republican Chairman Daniel Sadofsky.
The measure was not seconded at the meeting and it never came up for a vote. But it does seem to reflect a movement within the party for new leadership. A recent item on this blog that stated Panio’s intention to stick around as party leader has so far garnered more than 40 comments from angry Republicans calling for a change at the top.
“I can understand how people feel,” Panio said today. “They are disappointed, as am I.”
Panio, though, still believes she is helping the party and said there’s little benefit to her stepping down before her term expires in September.
