The Portland Republican City Committee elected a new chairman on February 26. Nick McGee will replace Halsey Frank as leader of the city’s Republican constituency.

McGee grew up in Wells, Maine, and moved to Portland three and a half years ago. A graduate of Providence College with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and History, he first became actively involved in politics in the 2000 elections in Rhode Island. More recently, he was the campaign manager for House District 113 candidate David Elowitch. He is currently the manager of Susan J. Szwed, P.A., a creditors’ rights law firm located in Portland.

McGee, a self-described moderate Republican, says his top priorities are to increase enrollment and participation in the party. Former Chairman Halsey Frank leaves the position after 6 years at the helm. He will continue to be active in local and state politics and is still a committeeman of Maine State Republican Party.

Also elected were Steven Palmer as Vice Chairman, Steven Scharf as Secretary and Vance Wheelock, II as Treasurer.
