New city GOP chairman in the wings

When the new Republican Town Committee takes office in March, the GOP's city chairman, TJ Barnes, won't be at the helm. He has long vowed to step down this year after leading his party from an era of near total defeat to capture City Hall, the Board of Education and even the city's sole state Senate seat.

Taking his place at the helm, probably, will be former city Councilor Derek Czenzewlewski.

Though he won't confirm it, a few GOP insiders have said he's the one.
Czenczelewski lost a reelection bid last year in the 3rd District, where two Democratic women found victory, but was immediately tapped by Mayor Ken Cockayne to serve on the city's Board of Finance.
