City Councilman Dan Guard notified The Paper recently of his intention to run for the position of Montgomery County Republican Party Chairman. Guard said in an interview that he thinks the party has good momentum at every level of government and wants to keep that momentum going.
“I’ve gotten more involved and I have a willingness to lead and do what needs to be done,” Guard said. “The main elements of being the chair are facilitation things getting done, being a leader and keeping everybody informed.”
Guard said that if he were elected at Saturday’s caucus, it wouldn’t affect his role as city councilman. He’s been on the council for five years and served as a precinct committeeman the last few years. He also said that the roles of vice chair, secretary and treasurer will be nominated Saturday after the chair has been determined.
