New leadership for Coosa County Republican Party
Special to the News
At an Executive Committee meeting held last month, the Coosa County Republican Party elected new members to fill vacancies because of resignations and deaths that had occurred over the last several months.
Acting Chair Terry Mitchell, who assumed the position last year after the resignation of former Chair Jodi McDade, opened the meeting by addressing the openings that needed to be filled.
Dawn Ficquette, Mallory Whitley and Lamar Daugherty were elected to at-large vacancies, and Jodi McDade moved to a seat for District 4 vacated by the death of Paul Perrett.
Sheriff Michael Howell, Anita Spivey and Elmore Unbehant were elected to seats as ex-officio voting members. There are still two open seats for District 2 and one seat open in District 3 if anyone in those areas would like to participate with the local party.
Other members retaining their seats on the Executive Committee were Terry Wilson, Dianne Perrett, Dee Morris, Randall Morris, Wanda Ivey, Nicole Law, Joe Ficquette, Judge of Probate Richard Dean, Revenue Commissioner Debra Lamberth, District 4 County Commissioner Ronnie Joiner, Coroner Jack Brewer, and Circuit Judge David Law.
Once the membership was determined, Terry Mitchell was formally elected as chairman; Joe Ficquette was elected as vice chairman; and Dawn Ficquette was elected as secretary. Nicole Law continues as treasurer.
Also, new members to the Alabama Republican State Executive Committee were selected to join Judge Dean to fill the total of five seats allotted to Coosa County.
New members are Terry Mitchell, Sheriff Howell, Joe Ficquette, and Dawn Ficquette. They will represent Coosa County at the two meetings held each year by the state party.
The Executive Committee also approved restarting the monthly public meetings that had been stopped during the COVID-19 pandemic. The next meeting will be held on Monday, May 24, at the E-911 Building in Rockford.
Snacks will be served starting at 6 p.m., and the program will start at 6:30 p.m. The speaker will be announced next week.
