GOP ticket uses county chairman’s personal office as a war room

Summit County Republican Party Chairman Henry Glasheen has set aside space in his personal office in Prospector for candidates to use during the election season.

Glasheen, a financial adviser, keeps an office in the Belle Aire building on Sidewinder Drive. He said the candidates have access to computers, copiers and printers. He also holds weekly Republican meetings at the office.

He said three Summit County Council candidates have used the space. Allen Christensen, a state senator seeking re-election, has also been to the office, Glasheen said. Kraig Powell, a state representative running for another term, has tapped the setup as well, he said. Glasheen said candidates have been at the office frequently in recent weeks.

The local Republican Party, though, is not renting separate office space as the Summit County Democratic Party has done on Bonanza Drive. Glasheen said there is not a need for outside space.

"There’s nothing they can do there we can’t do here," he said.
