Washoe GOP Leaders Resign Posts

Washoe County Republican Party Chairman Adam Kahn and three other top officers say they have resigned at least in part because of internal divisions within the county party.

Vice-chairman Tom Dickman, Secretary Barb Hawn and Treasurer Chuck Reno also submitted their resignation at Tuesday night's meeting.

Kahn told the Reno Gazette-Journal there was a problem with some party members being unable to coalesce around a cohesive message. He says the majority of the county GOP was fully supportive of his ideas, but that sometimes what he called an "irate minority" can feel like a majority.

All four intend to remain in power through the April 2 county convention and leave their posts on April 26.

Kahn says he's considering running for the Sparks City Council.
