CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Park County Republicans have selected new local leadership, including Colin Simpson, of Cody, as their new chairman.

Simpson pledged to draw the party closer together, to bring in more youth, to reinvigorate party fundraising and to include everyone who wants to be involved.

Dissatisfied with the local GOP leadership of the past two years, Simpson had chaired a political action committee called Republicans for Unity.

Despite opposition from outgoing chairman Larry French leading up to the meeting, four of the Unity group’s five nominees were elected to the Park County Republican Party’s leadership.

The Powell Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1I5AW2d ) that much division occurred under the previous leadership, including an effort to censure state Republican Sen. Hank Coe, of Cody, last year for various actions they disagreed with.
