In a December 2015 interview, Dianne Edmondson reflected on her tenure as Chair of the Denton County Republican Party. “After 13 years of commendable service as Chair of the Denton County Republican Party, Dianne Edmondson is moving on as she runs for a seat on the state Republican Executive Committee in Senate District 12. If elected, Ms. Edmondson will be taking the seat being vacated by Jean McIver, who will leave office in June 2016, after serving four two-year terms, the maximum under the term limits rule.” Click/tap here to read the full article.

For Immediate Release                             Contact Dianne Edmondson  940-391-6699


Dianne Edmondson, the longest serving Republican County Chairman in Denton County history, has announced that she will not be running for re-election here in Denton County but rather will be seeking to represent Senate District 12 on the State Republican Executive Committee.

“Since our SD 12 SREC Committee Woman Jean McIver, is term limited and will leave office at the June, 2016 State convention, I will be seeking to replace her as our SREC Committee Woman. I have been serving as the Texas Republican County Chair Association’s liaison to the SREC for two years and have fostered many relationships on that body which will make it easier for me to be productive immediately should I be elected at the State Convention,” Edmondson explains.

“It has been my honor to serve the Republicans in Denton County,” Edmondson says, “and I have enjoyed helping to train dozens of county chairs in other Texas counties.” Additionally, Edmondson has overseen a dozen Lincoln-Reagan Dinners, which are the major fundraisers for the DCRP, and are widely recognized as among the best such events in the state. Those successful fundraisers have put the DCRP into a strong financial position, she says.

Another by-product of her leadership is reflected in the political makeup of Denton County’s various elected public officials: since Edmondson became Chairman, not a single Democrat has been elected to a partisan office in the county. “And we need to continue our role of maximizing the total Republican vote in Texas to help re-take the White House next November,” she states.

Edmondson admits that she will miss interfacing with county Republicans as the county chair, but she plans to remain involved hopefully through the SREC as well as local party activities. “Being Chairman of the Republican Party in one of the state’s ‘reddest’ counties has been a real honor and certainly the highlight of my political career,” she says, “and I will continue to help elect conservative Republicans who will work for our traditional Republican values.”.
