The Charlottesville Republican Committee is the city's arm of the Republican Party.


In August 1938, the group adopted a resolution opposing the New Deal. It read in part:

"We commend the action to the Republican members in the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States in their efforts to prevent the passage of laws which would take away the liberties of the people in the United States and confiscate their property."

At the time, attorney Claude R. Yarley was re-elected chairman of the committee.[1]

In April 1950, the committee passed a resolution calling for non-partisan elections.[2]

In 2009, the party published a platform outlining the kind of candidate the party could support.[3] However, no Republicans surfaced in either 2009 or 2011. Buddy Weber was hopeful for 2013.[4]

A merger with the Albemarle County Republican Committee was discussed January 9, 2010 at the monthly regional GOP breakfast meeting.[5]

In 2017 Erich Reimer served as chairman of the party, succeeding Barbara Null.[6]
