LaDonna Ryggs Statement of Candidacy for Spartanburg County GOP Chairman

Greer, South Carolina – It is with much prayerful consideration and the wholehearted support of my family and a broad base of Spartanburg County Republican activists, including several Republican elected officials and former officials, that I announce my candidacy for Chairman of the Spartanburg County Republican Party.

I am truly grateful and humbled by the overwhelming response my candidacy has received thus far, and if elected, I look forward to bringing my communication, leadership, and organizational skills to the Spartanburg County Republican Party—the greatest volunteer corps of activists in the great state of South Carolina!

More details will be rolled out in the next couple of weeks before the county convention by the Committee to Elect LaDonna Ryggs Spartanburg County GOP Chairman.

The Spartanburg County GOP County Convention will be held Tuesday, April 7, 2009, at 7 p.m. in Holly Hall of the Carolina Country Club.
