From Kathleen Starnes, former chair of the Davidson County Republican Party, as posted on Facebook:
I am so disappointed with Mark Goins and Tre Hargett interfering with Davidson Co Election Commission. It was very personal with Mark and a terrific AOE Albert Tieche. Ron Buchanan was Mark's whipping boy. Mark is out of his league and it is only a matter of time before he is removed. No one on this committee has ever even worked in the polls and they are making a decision after being appointed after 30 Days. I understand Tre Hargett has bigger ambitions but after this, dog catcher is not in his leagues. I am also not happy with Speaker Beth Harwell. Ron Buchanan was her choice. Ron was so rude today. I was embarrassed for my party. Ron Buchanan needs to be removed. He is a liberal. His votes would not qualify him to even be on the Executive Board of the Republican Party. Shame on all of you.
