Nick Langworthy To Be New Erie County GOP Chair

by on May 6, 2010

Congrats to Nick on his new gig!

When Nicholas A. Langworthy leads the Erie County delegation to the Republican State Convention in Manhattan next month, some grizzled old pol might just bar him from entering the smoke-filled backrooms.

With a kidlike mug and only 29 years old, Langworthy hardly looks old enough to smoke, let alone lead the Erie County Republican Party.

Yet that’s exactly the position he assumes after the GOP County Committee meeting Wednesday. He becomes the youngest person to lead a local political party in any-one’s memory.

To almost everyone who knows him, however, the son of a Chautauqua County tavern owner appears as a rising star in political circles, with more experience than many of his elders.

“He’s where he is because of a combination of intelligence, political intuition and flat-out hard work,” said former Niagara County Republican Chairman Henry F. Wojtaszek. “The fact that he’s chairman at 29 does not surprise me in the slightest, and I could have told you that a long time ago.”

I met Nick soon after I moved to Western New York two years ago when he was running Chris Lee’s successful campaign for Congress. So, once again I offer my congratulations to Nick. I hope his leadership at the ECGOP will lead to a stronger relationship between the local party and local blogs.
