“I, Danny Volcik, am supporting Staci Stone, a Republican, as my replacement for County Treasurer,” stated Volcik in an email sent to GOPisForMe on Wednesday evening. With just two business days to get the message out, Volcik has sent emails to the Women’s Republican Club and anyone who can help sound the alarm, “Don’t be a victim to Lester Gibson appointing a Democrat to the seat won by a Republican.”
Elected in 2010, Volcik has announced recently he will be resigning his duty as County Treasurer due to health concerns. Since his replacement will be determined by the decision of the McLennan County Commissioners, Volcik is urging fellow Republicans to contact the Republican Commissioners and ask them to cast their vote and support for his nominee, Staci Stone, the current McLennan County Chief Auditor.
Volcik defeated the Democratic incumbent, Bill Helton, in the last election, and is concerned, if left to Commissioner Lester Gibson, Helton will be reinstated as County Treasurer.
With three Republican Commissioners, assuming each holds the line and casts their vote for Volcik’s Republican recommendation, the next Treasurer will be Staci Stone. But, to ensure there are enough votes to keep the Republican seat, Volcik requests Jim Lewis, outgoing Republican Judge, “be added to the list (of elected officials called) because his vote on the court is very important since he is a Republican.”
According to Volcik, the Commissioners will vote on this issue on Monday, September 17, 2012. The McLennan County Republican Women’s Club has also distributed emails informing their members of this urgent issue, calling on Republicans to contact Commissioners :
