The Denton County Republican Party has a new chairman after an unscheduled executive committee meeting. John Dillard of The Colony will serve, according to a press release from the GOP.

Previous chairman Lisa Hendrickson resigned in early October, noting health reasons in her resignation letter. Hendrickson also announced at a meeting in June she would not seek re-election in 2018.

“I am honored to be elected to serve as chairman,” Dillard said in a statement. “I look forward to working alongside my fellow Republicans in the months ahead.”

For the last 16 years, Dillard served as an elected official in The Colony, from serving as mayor to founding The Colony Economic Development Corporation. For the last 30 years, he has been a political activist in the area.

Dillard spent 25 years with the Army National Guard in the 49th Armored Division and the Texas Army Reserve, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel. He is a graduate of the United States Army Command and General Staff College and the United States Army Armor School.

Before retiring recently, Dillard was the district Manager for Siplast, Inc.
