Donald Layfield has been a Republican leader in this state for a long time. He was a Reagan appointee and worked extremely hard to revitalize the party in this state.
After leaving his position as Bibb County Chairman of the GOP, Mr. Layfield took on the challenge of District Chairman for the 8th District. He was a stickler for procedure, following the rules, and making the Republican trains run on time.
This past year, Mr. Layfield took back over the Bibb County GOP and began efforts to revitalize it until his health got in the way.
It’s with sadness that I must report he passed away earlier today.
He and his tireless energy will be missed. On the other hand, meetings in heaven will now begin and end on time and will be run under Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised (9th Ed.). Don hates the 10th Edition, as do I.
