2016 is off to an exciting start.
First, our NCRCO President, Don Rosier, County Commissioner from
Jefferson County, Colorado, resigned in December to run for United States
Senator from Colorado. We wish Don
well in his race. As a result of his
resignation, pursuant to our Bylaws I moved into the position of President.
I am honored to serve.
Second, our past
Secretary, Beryl Amedee, Terrebonne Parrish Councilwoman from Louisiana, was
successful in her race for the Louisiana State House.
Her term on the Parish Council ended January 7, and she took office in
the state House on January 11.
Beryl prevailed over the 8-year incumbent in a runoff.
Congratulations to Beryl.
The NACo Legislative
Conference will be here soon. It is
February 20-24 at the Wardman Park Marriott in DC.
Our NCRCO Business Meeting and Reception are set for Monday, February 22
at 5:00 & 6:00 p.m. Your Executive
Committee is working on getting a great speaker for the reception.
NCRCO’s objective is to
further the standards and ideas of the Republican Party through regular contact
and association with Republican County Officials throughout the United States.
2016 will bring great opportunities for growth, not only in our
membership but also in our influence at the local, State and National level.
I look forward to working with you in the coming National Election Year.
Thanks for your help and
Bell County, Texas
