LA County GOP chair, vice chair resign after bond election

The chair and vice chair of the Los Alamos County Republican Party abruptly resigned this week immediately after voters rejected the county’s recreation bond Tuesday.

County Chair James Robinson resigned a few minutes after the polls closed. First vice chair James Chrobocinski resigned Tuesday or Wednesday morning.

Second vice chair Lisa Shin is now acting chair of the county party.

Robinson cited personal reasons for his resignation. Chrobocinski cited personal attacks against him and his family over his advocating for the bond funding as his reasons.

“I believe there is too much hate and vitriol in politics today from both parties,” Chrobocinski said in a written statement to the Monitor Thursday. “Unfortunately, during this rec bond vote I had an incredible amount of personal attacks against me and my family.”

Robinson said he resigned for more personal reasons.

“My decision to resign was for personal reasons and had nothing to do with the rec bond,” Robinson said. “I was asked by both those for and against to wait until the bond was finished before resigning.”
