Fey says his work starts now

Newly elected Gloucester County Republican Chairman Bill Fey said tonight that his work starts immediately.

“We’re meeting with the candidates in the upcoming week, find out what their expectations are and what we can do,” he said

Fey said he will work to facilitate a better relationship between the county party and municipal-level Republican candidates. He also called for unity with the party’s other faction, headed by ousted chair Loran Oglesby.

After losing the chairmanship, Oglesby ran for vice-chair but lost that election as well. She will remain the municipal chair of West Deptford.

The party did not disclose vote totals and the event was closed to the press. But two sources who were there said that Fey beat Oglesby by a more than two-to-one margin.
