Washoe County Republican Party Repudiates Purported Facts  and Actions of the NVGOP Resolution

Reno, NV – The Washoe County Republican Party (WCRP), Executive Committee voted on Tuesday to repudiate the purported facts and actions of the NVGOP Resolution. The resolution’s intent was to censure Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske. It was presented at the State Central Committee meeting on Saturday, April 10, 2021, in response to what the State Party deemed a lack of action on the part of Secretary Cegavske, regarding alleged voter fraud.

In making the announcement WCRP Chairman Michael Kadenacy stated, “the Secretary of State was given no previous notice of the move to censure and strip her of party membership and therefore was not present at this meeting to tell her side of the story. That the State Party leadership made presentations regarding the purported evidence of voter fraud with no opportunity for a prepared rebuttal by the Secretary of State, is an affront to any semblance of Due Process.”

Barbara Cegavske is a former state legislator who termed out as an assemblywoman and a senator. She currently is the only Republican to hold a state constitutional office. With a Democrat Governor and Democrat-controlled legislature, she is at their mercy to abide by laws passed and signed by them.

In closing his statement Chairman Kadenacy also said, “If our goal is to win elections in this next cycle, I fail to see the value of the State Party attacking the sole Republican Constitutional Officer.”
