Fountain Valley Republican Assembly President John W. Briscoe was elected President lead the California Republican Assembly as President this afternoon at the CRA’s Burlingame convention. The vote was 84-78.
Briscoe, a successful CPA and long-time Republican, chose to take on now past President Celeste Greig with an engaging slogan “Expect more” and apparently a well-managed campaign run by Aaron Park. While we don’t follow the internal CRA politics closely, it’s generally understood in Republican ranks that the organization had enough issues to cause Greig to be under some fire. She’d also made some unfortunate public statements: Celeste Greig Rape Remarks Prompt Petition Calling For Resignation Of Top California Republican.
Briscoe prefers to use his middle initial to separate himself from another OC politico with the same name who recently ran for a school board.
