Greg Schumacher running for GOP chairmanship

Greg Schumacher
Gregory A. Schumacher, a retired U.S. Army major general who lives near The Plains, has announced his candidacy for chairman of Fauquier County Republican Committee.

The committee, which elects new leadership every two years, probably will do so in March. But, the organization has not announced its plan.

Gen. Schumacher is a 37-year Army veteran, whose career highlights include two successful brigade commands and standing up and leading a national military intelligence command that trained and supplied units to operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. His last assignment was serving as the Army’s Deputy G-2 (Intelligence) at the Pentagon.

After retiring from the Army in 2011, he and his wife Kathryn moved to Fauquier County.

He since has worked with defense contractors and served as the director of analysis and then executive director of the National Commission on the Structure of the Air Force. Gen. Schumacher serves on the advisory board for Serve Our Willing Warriors, a military and veterans’ support organization that operates the Bull Run Warrior Retreat Center in Haymarket. He just completed a three-year term as a trustee for Park Valley Church, also in Haymarket.

“My reasons for running are to lead our Republican committee to unify around its core purpose — growing our Republican Party in Fauquier County by serving our fellow citizens, and educating and persuading them that elected officials and citizens who believe in and operate according to the principles contained in the Virginia Republican Creed will bring the most benefit to the greatest number of people in our county, in our commonwealth, and in our nation,” he said. “To accomplish this, we must reach out aggressively to both our younger citizens and those in our minority communities.

“I will insist that our committee operate with transparency, treating all members and those who join with us with dignity and respect, and fostering a spirit of inclusion.”
