Republican Club Breaks Deadlock, Elects President

The Harvard-Radcliffe Republican Club Monday night elected Kathy A. Duey '79 president and Kenneth G. Lucero '80 vice president.

Election Brouhaha

This year's elections were not marked by any of the problems the club faced last year, Duey said. Last year the club could not decide how to count absentee ballots, and club President Robert Wiley '78 later resigned in another dispute.


Duey and Lucero were tied on the first ballot, so club members voted again and elected Duey. Lucero was then made vice president by unanimous consent.


Duey said she hopes to increase communication between the club leadership and the approximately 250 club members. Only 60 members showed up for the election Monday night.

Left Wingers

She added that most members are "of the opinion that it is better to be a liberal Republican than a conservative Republican," so the club should help to promote the more liberal philosophy.

Campaign Support

Duey said the Republicans will concentrate on supporting candidates for public office this year.

She said she also hopes to establish debates between Republicans of different views, instead of holding the traditional Republican-Democratic Club debates, and to improve relations between present and former club members.
