Orange GOP reelects Canfield-Greene as party leader

The Orange County Republican Committee re-elected Courtney Canfield-Greene as its chairwoman at its biennial reorganization meeting last week, giving her another two-year term at the helm of a party she has led since 2014.

Committee members also reelected Ben Ostrer as first vice chairman; Nancy Itzla as second vice chairwoman; and David Green as treasurer. Mike Ventre is the commitee’s new secretary.

Canfield-Greene said in a statement afterward that she expects the Republicans’ three countywide candidates with contested races to be reelected on Nov. 7, and that she hopes Republicans will win a 14-seat supermajority on the county Legislature as well (the party would need to pick up two more seats). Her ambitions for 2018 include electing a Republican governor, holding both for Orange County’s state Senate seats and getting more Republicans in the Assembly.
