Gardnerville resident Jim DeGraffenreid will be attending the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., next week.
DeGraffenreid, who is state Republican Party secretary and a presidential elector, will be attending the convention as an aide to the 125-member delegation.
“This will be my first national convention I’ve been to,” he said. “It’ll be pretty interesting.”
The 11-year resident said because he was a state party office and involved in apportioning delegates, he felt it would be a conflict of interest to be one himself.
As an aide he will be helping the delegation and working with the credentials committee.
