Last updated 12/5/2019 at 9:49am
Transylvania County Commissioners David Guice, Mike Hawkins and Page Lemel have left the Republican Party.
In an announcement, (see statement below) the three said they were changing their political affiliation from Republican to Unaffiliated.
"This is not an action we do happily, and it is not a choice we take lightly," the announcement said. "It comes after much prayer, reflection and discussion among us and with our loved ones. In leaving, we are ending a long association that is deeply personal. Between us, we have won 20 different elections as Republicans in Transylvania County."
