Longtime R.I. County Democratic Chairman Gianulis to resign
John Gianulis, chairman of the R.I. County Democratic Central Committee for over 40 years, has announced his resignation of the post due to health concerns.
Gianulis has led the county party to a remarkable run of electoral success over the years, ensuring that Democratic candidates have dominated the area at county, state, and national levels for decades.
Now in his early 80's, Gianulis continued to retain his seemingly boundless energy and focus but has decided to step down due to health issues.
Best wishes to John G. and gratitude for his very long and successful efforts in behalf of the Democratic party and candidates.
One of the very first posts on this blog almost exactly three years ago posed the question of who should take the reigns as county chair after Gianulis.
It would be impossible to fill Gianulis' shoes, but who would be the best to succeed him as county chair? Aside from who would be best, who likely will?
And feel free to offer your thoughts on the legendary John G.
