During an online gathering, the Chester County Republican Committee elected Dr. Gordon Eck, the former county coroner, as its new chairman, writes Andrew Seidman for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
“I am extremely honored and humbled to have the support of this committee and look forward to serving the fine people of our county,” said Eck, 67.
The Honey Brook resident is a retired family doctor who currently serves as medical director for a juvenile detention center. The Chester County GOP is hoping that having a doctor leading the party’s efforts during the pandemic can help it recover from the mounting losses it has accumulated in the last four years.
The newly elected chairman said fundamental rights that include “the sanctity of life, equal justice and opportunity, and personal freedom” should “guide our approach to issues such as educational choice, access to affordable, quality healthcare, criminal justice reform, racial reconciliation, ending the exploitation of women, and coming alongside those in need.”
Eck succeeds Rick Loughery, the current chairman of the Young Republican National Federation.
