Press Release – Councilman Trecha Video – Direct Contradiction of RCBC Values

The Republican Committee of Beaver County has issued the following statement in response to a recent article about Economy Councilman Greg Trecha published by the Beaver Countian:

“Although Dr. Trecha may be a registered Republican and may have gotten elected to Economy Council as a Republican, he circulated his own petitions and ran his own campaigns, he has never contacted the Republican Committee, has never sought our endorsement, we never endorsed him, and we have no record of him ever attending any of our functions.  Regarding the events and video described in your article and attributed to him, if true we do not in any way agree with his statements and they are in direct contradiction the principles of the Republican Committee.   We hope that no one paints our committee with his brush as the words he has used do not reflect the many thousands of Republicans in Beaver County.

“Regarding local candidates, we gladly work with voters who chose to run for office.  We encourage them to contact us so we may train them in how to run an election and offer resources for those in office.  We try and encourage good candidates and discourage those who are not ready to run for office or who may not offer good service to their municipality or to Beaver County.  While we have a robust candidate training and support program, we cannot prohibit someone from running  and we cannot be held responsible for a Registered Republican who runs on their own”
