WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The chair of the New Hanover County Republican Party has been named to the state Board of Elections.

Gov. Pat McCrory announced Rhonda Amoroso is one of the three Republicans who will join the board May 1. Prior to becoming party chair, Amoroso was vice chair in charge of election operations. She was also a member of Gov. McCrory’s transition team after he won election last fall.

Amoroso will be joined on the Board of Elections by fellow Republicans Josh Howard, a Wake County attorney, and Paul Foley, an attorney from Forsyth County.

McCrory also appointed two Democrats: Joshua Malcom, chair of the Robeson County Board of Elections and Maja Kricker, chair of the Chatham County Board of Elections.

This is the same woman that was pushing Melissa Gott a Brunswick county resident to run for county Commissioner here in New Hanover.

The Spoils/Patronage system has been around for more than a short while:

Four out of twenty-four months of this Republican General Assembly have already elapsed with no visible signs of economic improvement.

Chairwoman Amoroso has received her reward from party higher ups, nothing more, nothing less. Instead of criticizing her “buying” her office, lets look at who put it up for sale in the first place.

Cronyism at it’s finest! Amoroso and the rest of this area’s GOP are a laughable embarrassment to the region. Just look at the people they chose to support and promote.

Yet another carpet-bagger with deep enough pockets to buy themselves a seat in Raleigh.

And the beat goes on
