Diana Duffy Waterman ’83, first vice chair and interim-chair of the Maryland Republican Party, was elected to fulfill the remainder of former Senator Alex X. Mooney’s term through the 2014 elections. The former math-physics major is one of only a handful of women serving as state party chairs on the Republican National Committee.

“I am proud to represent our state on the Republican National Committee and look forward to working with all of the members,” she said in a press release by the Maryland Republican Party.

“Thank you for the support and trust of the Maryland Republican State Central Committee. It is going to take the same energy and passion our members showed this election as we take on the Democrats for the 2014 elections. I plan to lead the efforts to improve our grassroots organization, raise money to support our candidates and communicate our vision directly with the voters.”

Waterman was elected to the Republican Central Committee of Queen Anne’s County in 2006 and re-elected in 2010, serving as a member, treasurer, vice chairman and chairman. She has also served on several committees for the Maryland Republican Party, including Credentials, Resolutions, Voter Registration, Chairman’s Ad Hoc Voting Committee and Bylaws.

Prior to her election as first vice chair of the Maryland Republican Party, Waterman served on the National Federation of Republican Women’s Membership Committee. She was elected first vice president of the Maryland Federation of Republican Women (MFRW), having served previously as a regional chair and club president for the federation. She remains active on the MFRW.
