The Executive Committee of the Modern Whig Party acting in accordance with the MWP bylaws appointed Andrew Evans interim National Chairman of the Modern Whig Party. Andrew has nearly 5 years of experience in working in national and state leadership capacity in the American Centrist Party, which united with the MWP in June. Andrew will serve in this capacity until June 30, 2011 at which time a national convention will elect a new chair and new leaders.
When asked about his plans for working with the Modern Whig Party Mr. Evans was enthusiastic and resolute; ” I know that the strength of America is her people and so does the Modern Whig Party. We will work to empower the American citizen to realize their power and responsibility in our democracy and to act upon it. I am excited to have this opportunity to help the Modern Whig Party and America. Our goal is to be an organization that focuses on the American citizen and puts forth pragmatic common sense solutions that give the American citizen the power and tools to take the lead in making America a nation of the people and a true world class example of good governance.”
